Whether you are in your early 20s, truckin into your 30’s or mature in your 40s plus it’s good to start focusing on your skin to prevent wrinkles. Of course all of us want to look as great and healthy as we can as we age. So knowing the right tools to do that is key. Here is a few tips and suggestion of products that will do just that.
GET GOOD SLEEP:
I am totally guilty lately of not getting enough sleep. But sleep is SO important for your body to repair itself! Letting your body rest and to restore itself in the proper time is so important not just for preventing wrinkles but your overall health. As an adult we need at least 7-8 hours of peaceful sleep, not interrupted. So, don’t drink a lot of liquid before you go to bed. Making sure your bed is super comfy and colors that make you fall asleep faster. Usually going to bed around 9:30-10 would be good to start.
Well, this should be a no brain-er If you are out in the sun or even when it’s cloudy out you still need sunscreen on your body and face. You face is so delicate and needs some protection from those sun rays! So, try putting sunscreen on your body and getting a really good moisturizer with a good spf! Like Aveeno SPF 15 moisturizer!
GET A WRINKLES CREAM:
Getting a good wrinkle cream is always a great way to go. Getting one that’s great for the day time and a deeper cream for the night when you sleep. Of course remember if you use a day wrinkle cream it makes your skin more sensitive to the sun so you can’t forgot the sunscreen/spf moisturizer. Ponds is a new one I found that really like so far, another good one is by the brand ROC !
BUY SILK PILLOW CASES:
This old trick is known to reduce aging in the skin and wrinkles by %50. My sister told me about it and I had to do more research, I thought it was a great idea. Silk is so soothing on the skin and your face doesn’t scrunch up when sleeping on it. Of course beware because silk is a bit slippery and you could slide around or off. On regular cotton “pressure from side sleeping causes the skin to wrinkle in the nasal-labial fold, which is the line than runs from the nose to the mouth.”
EXERCISE FOR PROTECTION OF WRINKLES:
“By moving your body regularly and keeping your blood pumping, you’ll be supplying your skin with nourishment (your skin’s main source of nourishment is provided by your bloodstream) because exercising enhances the circulation process and sends blood to your skin. This is extremely helpful in preventing those dreaded wrinkles. That’s right! You can walk, jog, swim, bike—whatever sport or movement you personally enjoy—just get moving!”
Water = Hydration = More Supple Skin:
“Always be sure to drink enough water—especially ionized water. By giving your body what it’s truly thirsting for, you’re not only drinking water, you’re hydrating your body. It’s common sense, really. If your body is dehydrated, your skin will be, too. Not only that, but by flushing your system with water, you’ll be eliminating pesky toxins and going the extra mile to prevent wrinkles from forming!”
DRINK, EAT, AND PUT ON FACE ANTIOXIDANTS:
Antioxidants help your body defend against free radicals. Combat wrinkles by eating foods and drinking beverages that contain antioxidants (pomegranates, acai, blueberries, green tea) and using creams or moisturizers that contain them.
