Sneaky Wrinkle Reduction Tip #1
One of the biggest factors in aging of the skin is damage from the sun’s UV rays. It is vitally important to stay out of the sun as much as possible.
Even if you are heading out to run errands for the day, it is so very important to wear a good sunscreen.
Don’t be fooled by cloudy days because you still need sunscreen. Just a few rays from the sun peeking out on the cloudiest day can be enough to find your skin and cause damage, resulting in wrinkles.
Invest in a pair of good sunglasses because squinting from the bright sunshine can cause crow's feet and other lines to form under the delicate
area under your eyes.
There are great tinted moisturizers on the market today, so you can get that important protection from harmful UV rays and add a little color to
your skin at the same time.
If you are using a cream specifically formulated to lighten age spots or freckles on the skin, never go out in full sunlight after applying it to the skin. Doing so may cause the skin to bleach and create super light areas of pigmentation and/or blotchiness on your face. Some people use an astringent or lemon juice to lighten age spots. It is best to use these types of products at night.
Sneaky Wrinkle Reduction Tip #2
Use a good vitamin-rich hydrating or moisturizing cream every night before bed while your skin naturally restores and regenerates itself. The time when skin cells heal and restore themselves is at night while your body is at
Keeping the skin moisturized properly helps keeps the skin hydrated, which is important for cell turnover to reveal new, fresh skin underneath.
Dry skin is also a canvas for new wrinkles to form. By keeping skin hydrated and moisturized, dry skin is kept at bay and the likelihood of new wrinkles forming decreases. Keeping skin moisturized also gives you a less pronounced look of fine lines and a softening of existing wrinkles.
Did you know that if you tend to sleep on your side, wrinkles tend to form on the side of your face which lays on your pillow the most? If you can, switch to lying on your back, which is the best sleeping position for the reduction of wrinkles on one side of your face. You've probably experienced those "creases" in your face back in your 30's. As you get older, creases turn into wrinkles!
Sneaky Wrinkle Reduction Tip #3
Another easy and super simple tip is to drink lots of water throughout the day. By lots of water, I mean 6-8 glasses/bottles every day. The reason that water is so good for your skin is that is hydrates from the inside. You can have a double-whammy going on here by drinking water and using a great skin care cream, which will help reduce wrinkles from inside and out.
With all of the varieties of water to choose from these days, it is easier than ever to drink the right amount of water and not get completely bored with it.
There are waters mixed with a lot of different fruit flavors, which can help get you some vitamins and antioxidants, as well. All of these things are fabulous for your skin!
You can flavor water yourself with sprigs of mint, honey or try some cucumber for a refreshing warm weather treat. You can also drink green or black tea, which are both loaded with antioxidants and good for your cells, which directly affects your skin.
Sneaky Wrinkle Reduction Tip #4
It is important for you to be able to find ways to relax and reduce stress in your life. Have you ever noticed that someone who is going through a stressful time in their life such as a divorce, illness or financial problems can start to look older almost overnight? This can be due to an inability to sleep, eating poorly and just not taking care of themselves in general.
Don't let this happen to you.
Even if you take 20-30 minutes per day, broken up into 5 or 10 minute segments if that's all you can do. You have to find a way to relax and not let stress overwhelm you.
Try walking, which is a great stress reliever, gets you some fresh air and exercise all at the same time. Listen to some relaxing music, meditate, read a book, work out in the garden. Whatever helps you relax and feel more balanced and less stressed, find the time to do it.
Make and take the time for yourself because if you don't, that stress will show up right on your face in the form of worry lines and wrinkles.
Sneaky Wrinkle Reduction Tip #5
Change up your food choices with a good diet consisting of lots of fruits and vegetables. By replacing sugary snacks and junk food with healthier choices like apples, blueberries, strawberries, melon, carrots and other green leafy veggies, you will be doing your skin a huge favor. Toss in some nuts like unsalted almonds and add some seeds to the mix. These foods will give your cells - and skin - much needed nutrients and vitamins, which will result in your skin replenishing itself far more effectively, and increase cell turnover, which will give you a younger look and a healthy glow. Take vitamin supplements every day for an added boost to your diet. Vitamins especially good for your skin include A, E and C.
By using any or all of these wrinkle reduction tips, you can enjoy younger, healthier-looking skin in no time. Just try to be consistent for the best and fastest results.
If you do nothing else, remember to keep your skin moisturized and protected from pollution, irritants and the sun, which will go a long way to
reduce the look of existing wrinkles, and really help prevent the forming of new lines and wrinkles. Prevention, of course, is the best treatment.
