As unsightly as they are, wrinkles are
something all of us have to face at some point.
They are a natural part of the aging process, whether we’d like to admit
it or not. If you’re someone who would
rather try to reverse the signs of aging rather than embrace your wrinkles,
you’re in luck. There are many ways to
reduce the appearance of wrinkles and reveal more supple, youthful skin. Here are a few!
Fillers and Injections
Perhaps some of the most common ways to eliminate wrinkles, people have been turning to fillers and injections to treat the lines they’d rather not show for years. There are many different types of fillers to choose from, with some of the most popular being Juvederm, Sculptra, and Restylane. The type of wrinkle filler you choose depends on a number of factors, including your budget and the condition of your skin. If you have deeper wrinkles in your skin, for example, your choice in fillers can be narrowed down based on which one will give you the best results. Fillers and injections are great ways to eliminate wrinkles and give your face a more smooth, youthful looks. The process of getting fillers is also relatively quick and requires little to no recovery time, making it an ideal choice for people on the go.
Creams and Serums
Topical creams and serums are other popular
ways of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, although these tend
to show less dramatic results than something like fillers. When purchasing a serum, there are several
things you should look for in order to achieve the best results:
Peptides– to help stimulate the growth of
collagen and elastin
Hyaluronic Acid– to help the skin retain
moisture and remodel collagen
Vitamin C– to exfoliate and brighten the skin
Vitamin E– to protect cellular membranes and
plump the skin
AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids)– to exfoliate the
skin and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Retinol– to minimize the appearance of
wrinkles and slow the breakdown of collagen
The frequency of your serum use will depend on what kind you choose, however, they are typically the first product that should be applied after cleansing and toning your face. While serums can typically be applied to your face using only your clean fingertips, there are other tools you can use, such as a jade roller, that provide additional benefits to using a serum.
In addition to serums, wearing an eye cream
can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eye area. After all, the eye area is the most delicate
skin on your face, so it is important to keep this area moisturized and
protected throughout the day.
By now, you probably know that wearing sunscreen is an important part of any daily skincare routine, especially when it comes to preventing premature aging and wrinkles. While you may only think you need to wear sunscreen during the summer, however, it is just as important to wear it year-round as well. SPF 30 is the most commonly used, as it provides adequate sun protection and blocks 97% of UVB rays. When it comes to choosing a particular type of sunscreen to use on your face, it is important to select one that works best for your skin type. For example, a sunscreen with a gel consistency would most likely be ideal for oily skin.
They say “you are what you eat”, and it’s
true! Eating a healthy, balanced diet is
a great way to preserve your skin and keep it looking youthful and
glowing. One way to do this is by
including fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins A and D into your
diet, like carrots, apricots, and oranges.
These vitamins will help plump your skin and give it a glowy look,
keeping your skin looking bright and refreshed.
There are also tons of DIY face masks you can use to
