Tips to Eliminate Wrinkles and Look Younger After 50

Wrinkles, which are also called rhytides, are essentially folds that occur in your skin. As you get older, your skin will stop producing as much elastin and collagen as it used to. This makes your skin much thinner and less resistant to damage.

Toxins, environmental exposure, and dehydration can make your face much more likely to develop wrinkles. While these skin folds are a natural part of the aging process, there is no reason to dread them. There are some tips you can use to help reduce the signs of aging, including wrinkles. Keep reading to learn what some of these options are!

Wear Sunscreen

Reading Beverly Hills MD deep wrinkle filler reviews may make you believe that you can treat wrinkles after they occur – which is possible. However, preventing them is a smarter strategy. One of the best ways to prevent wrinkles is by wearing sunscreen every time you go outside.

Try to use a product that has an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 or higher. This will help prevent skin cancer and slow down the signs of aging. While you may wear sunscreen when you go to the beach, it is also a good idea to apply it daily, which will benefit your long-term skin health.

Reduce the Amount of Sugar You Consume

The medical community is continually learning more about how sugar consumption impacts a person’s body and overall health. When you consume sugar, it will begin a process that is called glycation. Advanced glycation end products, which are simply called AGEs, are not good for your skin. With AGEs, the collagen in your body is broken down faster, which results in you looking older. Also, AGEs have been directly linked to certain food preparation methods, including frying and grilling.

When you limit how much oil-rich foods and sugar you consume, your face will be able to retain its youthful appearance.

Stop Smoking

There are more than a few reasons you should stop smoking. However, many people are not aware that smoking can actually age their face prematurely. In fact, according to a study that compared the faces of 79 pairs of identical twins, where one smoked, and one did not, the differences in their faces made it clear that smoking has a huge impact on the skin on your face. Even just being around secondhand smoke will increase the possibility of diseases and cancers. It may also hurt the skin, which is why you should stop smoking if you have this habit.

Add Coconut Oil to Your Beauty Routine

Coconut oil is considered a natural emollient. This means that when you apply it to your skin, it will fill in the gaps in the epidermis, helping your skin feel smoother. If you show a little love to your skin using coconut oil, it will not just make it feel smoother, and it will also help the skin retain moisture. This will also help your face look fuller. A bonus of using coconut oil is that it helps hydrate severely dry skin.

Increase Your Beta Carotene Intake

There is a growing medical debate on why and how beta carotenes can block the sun’s UV light and keep it from damaging your eyes and skin. Most cosmetic creams designed to fight wrinkles include retinol and beta carotene. However, you do not have to buy an expensive product to benefit from beta carotene. You can add a supplement to benefit your skin. Just 30 milligrams a day of beta carotene taken by mouth can prevent and repair photoaging, which is also called wrinkles. Consult your doctor beforehand.

Change Your Sleep Position

Sometimes the way you sleep can cause wrinkles. This is called compression and occurs when you press your face against a pillow the same way each night. As time passes, compression will leave the skin much weaker in some places, which makes these areas more prone to wrinkles. It is possible to slow down or prevent compression wrinkles completely if you sleep on your back.

Wash Your Face Often

Taking a few extra minutes to wash your face at night is not a waste of time. If you leave makeup on all night, your face is going to absorb a lot of it. Because most cosmetics have chemicals in them, this will increase the oxidative stress that your skin is exposed to. Washing your face at night will help prevent this situation.

If you are trying to prevent the appearance of wrinkles, you must consider more than a few things. Knowing what to do and what not to do will help ensure that excessive wrinkles do not occur. Keep this in mind to ensure that you achieve the youthful appearance that you want and need, regardless of the wrinkles you have now. Being informed is the best way to ensure you get the youthful appearance that you want and need.

    I believe that cleansing your skin EVERY night is the most important factor towards a youthful complexion. Also using medical grade products is a definite plus along with a form of retinol is extremely important for keeping wrinkles at bay. Exfoliating is a great practice to slough off debris – I do it daily. I never forget to apply sunscreen – even if I’m staying indoors – our electronics emit harmful rays too. Hydration is key to a plump, youthful appearance so don’t forget to drink lots of water. I struggle with this one! Even if you can incorporate one or two suggestions I believe you will see improvement and reap the benefits.
