Steps To Prevent Face Wrinkles
As we age, we know that we will have face wrinkles; it is one sad fact of life we can't escape from. But there are some ways of preventing these wrinkles from appearing, and the ways are both internal and external. They also help to minimize wrinkles that are already there.
For all that, you will need items like facial moisturizer, sunscreen, anti-wrinkle cream, a good exfoliant, and a good pair of sunglasses. You will also need reading glass if you have eye problems. As for food, it should include Vitamin A enriched vegetables, fruits rich in anti-oxidant and foods that are rich in Omega-3. Water is another must have item in your struggle to remove face wrinkles.
First of all, you should have a good facial care routine that will cater to you. Exfoliation is something that strips the dead skin cells on our skin. After exfoliation, you should apply a good quality anti-wrinkle cream or moisturizer. While doing all these, be careful to avoid the sensitive eye areas and the skin surrounding it.
The sun's UV (ultra violet) harms us in many way and skin damage due to it, is expected. So don't forget to layer yourself with sunscreen that has SPF factor of 15 or above. Before going out, apply about 1 oz of it and also it should be done at least 30 minutes prior to going out. Every two hours, reapply the sunscreen and if you came for swimming, apply it more frequently.
Smoking is a great bad habit that can also accelerate the aging process faster leading to face wrinkles at a lower age. When you smoke, the outer layer of the skin's blood vessels narrow down and so our cells can't receive oxygen from the blood faster. Also when you smoke, you pucker up your lips which also results in face wrinkles.
To improve elasticity and keep your body hydrated, drink water in pleasant amount. When you have adequate water to drink, your skin stays hydrated and plump; and these glasses of water, flushes out the toxins.
Sleep well because if you don't get adequate sleep, your body will not produce HGH or human growth hormone is right amount. This hormone is responsible for your skin elasticity and thickness. Also make the habit of sleeping on your back so the face wrinkles are not etched out on your skin.
Do not squint and use reading glasses whenever needed. Similarly, a pair of sunglasses is must when out in sun. Also do not frown, stay grim or make any kind of repetitive facial movements.
What you eat will also help to fight face wrinkles. Your ideal diet should include fatty fishes that are rich in Omega 3-fatty acid as well as flaxseed, walnuts, etc. For a good source of anti-oxidant, blueberries are the berries who should stock up. Vitamin A, another nutrient that helps you to maintain a healthy young skin, comes from carrots. So include them in your daily diet.
