Waking up one day and seeing fine lines and wrinkles in your face can be very scary. Well, maybe the word scary is a bit too much, but just the same, worry sets in. I think it’s both because of the fear of aging as well as the fear of looking not as attractive anymore.
So we’re there already! The facial fine lines and wrinkles have officially declared that they are here to stay. So you are probably wondering if there is anything, anything that you can do to erase the wrinkles and fine lines. Below is a list of some of the things you can do to keep your skin looking young and healthy for a long time.
Tips On What You Can Do
Health and beauty experts suggest that more than what you put on your face, the food you eat makes the greatest impact on your skin. So the first best thing that you can do is to eat right and this means eating the right kinds of food. There are foods that contribute so much to keeping your skin clean, clear and healthy. Eat foods that contain Vitamin C and antioxidants, such as fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish. Choose whole grains and pasta and other excellent sources of complex carbohydrates. Then eat only healthy protein and don’t forget to drink plenty of water for proper hydration.
Your Skin Care Routine Is Important
There are a few things that you must do to ensure that even if the wrinkles are there already, they will be hard to see, if not impossible to detect. Below are the “musts” in skin care:
Always moisturize your skin. This is none negotiable. Begin the day by washing your face with a mild facial wash. Pat-dry with a clean facial cloth and apply your skin moisturizer. Excellent moisturizers protect your skin from drying out.
Use Sunscreen All the Time
Wear sunscreen not only when you go out of the house or office but even when you’re staying indoors. Choose a sunscreen with SFF 30 or higher because they protect your skin better from the harmful rays of the sun or the UVA rays.
Choose the Right Facial Skin Care Products
When buying beauty products, especially for your face, make sure that they contain the following ingredients: retinoids, alpha-hydroxy acids, and azelaic acid. These ingredients are known to treat effectively early signs of aging.
Here’s a sad truth. We all know that frowning causes wrinkles, and smiling does the same. The more we smile and frown, creases in our faces form and they are called frown lines and smile lines. But there is something that you can do to counteract the effects of smiling and frowning, it’s called facial exercises. Facial exercises help tone the facial skin which helps delay the formation of facial fine lines and wrinkles.
