Preventing wrinkles. It’s quite a conundrum. So many people ask the question “what’s the best way to prevent wrinkles” and spend their life searching for the top wrinkle cream.
The first thing to say is that there is no one way to prevent wrinkles. Wrinkles are a natural part of aging and if you’re aging, as all of us do, you’ll get wrinkles. There’s no getting around that, it’s just a question of the age you get them, and how many wrinkles you’ll get.
Wrinkles form because of a number of factors, all associated with the aging process. Wrinkles and lines form on our faces, particularly certain parts of our faces like around the mouth and eyes, but also on other parts of our bodies. Wrinkling is just visible aging, and you won’t find anyone over, say, 80, that doesn’t have wrinkles somewhere.
So the first thing that you need to do if you’re looking for an answer to the question “what’s the best way to prevent wrinkles” is to accept that you will always suffer from wrinkles if you get old enough. To an extent you’ll need to learn to live with wrinkles.
Wrinkles form as a result of many interlinked factors. As we age our skin loses some of it’s collagen and elastin, and this causes our skin to lose the firmness and elasticity that it exhibited when we were younger. Aging skin is lower in collagen and elastin than young skin.
And as we age our skin is more and more under attack from free radicals that damage the cells that make up our skin structure, and cause poor skin health.
As well as this our skin suffers from damage from other factors, such as sunburn or even just normal exposure to UV from the sun, and from the effects of toxins and chemicals in our general environment. And if you smoke you’re just about guaranteed to have poor skin health as you age.
And believe it or not our skin can also be damaged from the use of mainstream skincare products. Yes many big brand skincare products actually contain ingredients that can damage our skin.
However that’s the bad news. Now for the good news. There are things you can do to lessen the onset of skin wrinkles and lines, and reduce their visible effects.
I’m not talking about Botox injections or plastic surgery here. These are only temporary solutions to wrinkles that work for a limited time then actually look worse than before the operation. Botox or cosmetic surgery is never a long term solution to wrinkles, and is also expensive, painful and often the result is worse than the problem.
So the solution to limiting the look of skin wrinkles is far simpler than that. Note I said simple, not easy.
The way to slow, or lessen, the onset of wrinkles is twofold. Firstly it’s about staying healthy. And I’m not just talking about skin health here, but staying healthy overall. Because skin health is a function of overall health, one cannot be divorced from the other.
Good diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables in your diet will help massively. Pizza and burgers won’t keep you, or your skin, healthy. Fruit and vegetables are rich in vitamins and minerals and anti oxidants, and help with skin health.
And regular exercise is very important as well, helping with skin health and wrinkle prevention in so many ways.
And don’t smoke. Smoking is the worst thing you can do for your skin.
And the second part of a simple formula that is the best way to prevent wrinkles is the use of a top shelf skin care and anti wrinkle routine, including a top wrinkle cream that contains only natural, safe ingredients. And regular use of other high quality skincare products.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not referring to those big brand name skin care products that you see advertised on TV and on the shelves of the department stores. Unfortunately those aren’t high quality skin care products. Most contain very little active ingredients, and many contain ingredients that can actually damage your skin.
I’m referring to natural skin care products that utilize all natural and safe organic ingredients that work extremely well. There are small niche companies that produce products like these, and they put their budgets into producing top shelf products rather than toward TV advertising. They cannot compete with the big brands and so occupy their niche in the market by product quality rather than Television saturation.
That’s the best way to prevent wrinkles. As I said, it’s simple, but not easy. There is no easy way to prevent wrinkles that works, wrinkles are a part of life, and whilst so many people search for the easy and complete solution to wrinkle prevention it is, sadly, unattainable.
But follow those simple steps and you’ll live a long healthy life, and keep most wrinkles at bay more than all those other women out there looking for an easy answer to preventing wrinkles.
