How To Prevent Wrinkle



Some people go to great lengths to avoid looking in the mirror when wrinkles start to multiply as they age. Wrinkles are caused by thin, sagging skin. They particularly appear on the face, neck, backs of hands, and tops of forearms.

Premature or excess wrinkles can also be caused by factors like too much exposure to sunlight or harsh environments, smoking, use of certain drugs, excessive stress, sudden weight loss, loss of vitamin E, and genetic predisposition.

There are many easy home remedies that will help reduce wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.

How To  Prevent  Wrinkle

1. Avoid the Sun

The sun is the biggest cause of wrinkles and decades of studies and scientific results have shown this. Identical twins test in New York revealed the truth that sibling that was limited to sun exposure has less wrinkles and appeared to be younger overall.

 Wear sunscreen. If your daily work schedule forces you to go out in the sun, then it is suggested to wear sunscreen every day. Sunscreen lotion and creams protects from skin cancer and reduces wrinkles at the same time.

2. Wear Sunscreen

If you must go out in the sun, the American Academy of Dermatology says, wear sunscreen! It will protect you from skin cancer, and help prevent wrinkles at the same time.

3. Get Sufficient Sleep

Insufficient sleeping cause dark circles and wrinkles both. It is advised to take a sleep of at least 7 hours in the whole day to be relaxed and fresh. On an average 7-8 hours of sleep is enough for a person, but it varies from person to person. Decide how many proper sleeping hours do you need and analyze the changes that come after taking full sleep. During sleeping hours our body produces more human growth hormones that help in making skin thicker and elastic to retain it wrinkles free.

4. Sleep on Your Back

Sleeping in wrong position may cause wrinkles. You must be surprised to hear that even when you are sleeping, though you can get wrinkles. When we sleep by side, wrinkle on cheeks and chin start appearing, while sleeping by down face causes furrowed brow. It is advised to sleep on your back to reduce wrinkle formation on your face.

5. Stop Smoking
Heavy smokers are almost 5 times more likely to show excessive wrinkling than nonsmokers. Smoking can damage collagen, and the squinting and lip pursing that comes with smoking directly create wrinkles over time.

6. Drink Water

Moisture is essential for maintaining healthy skin, and it also helps rid your body of toxins. When your skin is properly hydrated it looks healthy and radiant. However, drinking water doesn’t have an immediate effect on your skin. Proper hydration is important for long-term health, but it offers few short-term gains (to your skin, at least).

Drinking eight glasses of water a day helps your body and skin over time. Just don’t count on it to be a quick fix.

Olive oil is a great massage oil for your skin. It is a good source of antioxidants, like vitamins A and E, which fight skin-damaging free radicals. Regularly massaging olive oil onto the affected skin area will moisturize, repair and even regenerate skin cells.
