Anti Wrinkle Tips that Can Help Fight Wrinkles

Wrinkles are every woman’s nemesis and the fact that they are inevitable hurts! Still, though one may not be able to prevent them completely, one can definitely delay their appearance with some tips and fight their visibility with some anti-wrinkle treatments.

Anti Wrinkle TipsWrinkles can be easily categorized according to two distinct variations; one as the fine lines that are usually superficial and on the skin surface only, and two as the deep furrows that are the actual cause of concern. Sensitive skin is most prone to developing wrinkles be it in the first form or the second one, and the most susceptible areas are often the lips, forehead and eyes.
Ever since the time that mankind has acknowledged that ageing causes wrinkles, anti-wrinkle treatments and anti-ageing solutions have been flooding the market each year, year in and year out. Everyone is one the lookout for that one thing that will beat every single product out there, the one thing that will really reverse the signs of ageing. Though the popularity of such treatments has always been on a high, people are also now wary of what they buy and whether it really works or not.

The Main Culprits for the Appearance of Wrinkles
Wrinkles are often the outward reaction of an internal problem and that problem is the problem of weakened connective tissues and lower collagen production. As we age, our skin’s natural collagen producing capacity goes down and the elastin in the connective tissues also starts to break down. This is just a form of natural skin damage.
Skin that is damaged in this manner loses density and looks thinner. It also loses its healthy fat content and starts deteriorating in its elasticity. Such skin may also appear stretched, dehydrated and rough. When such lax tissues are pulled down by gravity, the skin sags and forms the more deep wrinkles and furrows. Though skin all over one’s body ages in the same manner, it is the parts where it is most exposed to natural elements and the sun can one see the most wrinkles and skin damage.

Some of the most common reasons for damaged skin, which in turn leads to the formation of wrinkles, are:

  • Ageing related natural damage
  • Recreational hazards (sun tanning)
  • Occupational hazards (working under the hot sun)
  • Dehydration and lack of moisture in the skin
  • Overexposure to the sun
  • Heredity
  • Skin injuries
  • Surgeries
  • Skin diseases that leave scars
  • Heavy acne bouts
  • Air and water pollutants including contact with harsh chemicals
  • Abuse of drugs
  • Smoking, both passive and active
  • Repetitive muscle movements
  • Stress
  • Quick and extreme weight loss
  • Vitamin deficiencies
Can I Stall Appearance of Wrinkles?
If you wish to fight off those unsightly wrinkles, there are some tips that can help you stall them and they are as follows:
  • Do not use soaps on your face as irrespective of which soap you use, it is bound to have some chemicals that dehydrate your skin.
  • Clean your face completely of make up and impurities at least twice a day. Make it a routine and use natural cleansing products only as some of the products that are available in the market contain harmful chemicals and toxins.
  • Before you apply any make up in the morning, apply a thin layer of moisturizer and rub it in. This will help your skin retain more moisture throughout the day.
  • The skin area around the eyes is extremely thin and delicate. Use natural products for this area and apply it with a light touch.
  • Try natural anti-wrinkle products when you use them. You can also select products that have add-on nutrients for your skin.
  • Try to inculcate the habit of sleeping on your back rather than the sides. This will stop the gravitational pull from adding wrinkles to your face.
  • If you smoke, stop smoking. Inhaling secondary smoke is just as harmful for your skin so avoid the company of smokers.
  • Drink 8 or more glasses of water each day to keep your skin hydrated, soft and supple.
Indeed, when people tell you that wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging, they are right. But the appearance of wrinkles can be both delayed as well as diminished by following the tips given above and the options for anti-wrinkle treatments that help.
