One of the unavoidable signs of aging are wrinkles and fine lines. There are expensive procedures available that may lessen their appearance and natural remedies that are effective in delaying their arrival.
When skin ages, it loses its collagen, your skin’s primary tightening protein that is responsible for keeping your skin taut and smooth. This is a natural process and is sure to affect us all, everyone is susceptible to these fine lines, hollowness that appears in face, and sagging of skin due to collagen loss. And the collagen production only lessens with every year. The dermal layer thins due to the ongoing reduction in collagen.
Though the severity and onset of wrinkling and fine lines has a lot to do with family genes, there are plenty of things you can do to control level of damage and the rate at which it happens to you. Take charge of this by adding a premium Amino Collagen supplement to your diet and set aside time every morning for a face massage to prevent fine lines and minimize wrinkles.
Ways to Reduce Wrinkles
Avoid overexposure to the sun. It’s actually the main cause of wrinkles according to a multitude of studies.
Use sunscreen. Not only can it protect you from skin cancer while also preventing wrinkles.
Don’t even think about smoking. Not only does smoking cigarettes have cancerous effects on the body… it turns out reports have shown smoker’s skin being up to 40% thinner in addition to showing more wrinkles.
Get your beauty sleep. If you don’t get the sleep required, your body produces the hormone, cortisol, that speeds the breakdown of your skin.
Sleep on your back with satin/silk pillowcases. It’s the best position to avoid causing fine lines and wrinkles over time. Cotton pillowcases absorbs your natural oils and dries you out, unlike silk/satin.
Eat more fish or get your Omega-3s. Salmon and Tilapia (as well as other cold-water fish) are a source of protein and building blocks of healthy skin. It keeps your skin nourished and youthful in appearance, keeping the skin plump and reducing wrinkles.
Don’t forget to eat your fruits and veggies. They have the antioxidants needed to fight the damage caused by free-radicals.
Grab the moisturizer. You would be surprised how many forget to use a basic moisturizer to keep skin fresh. There’s no better way to aid less visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. Try our Intense Nutrients Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid, MSM, & DMAE
Careful not to over-wash. Use a nourishing cleanser instead of water and soaps that may contain harsh chemicals. Tap water has been shown to strip way the natural oils and moisture that prevents wrinkles.
