How to Prevent/Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, the aging process is not fun. One of the earliest signs of aging comes in the form of one’s face. Wrinkles and fine lanes have a habit of popping up at annoyingly rapid rates.

Some people are certainly more prone to these facial crevices more than others. However, there are ways to help prevent both fine lines and wrinkles. We will delve into four specific ways:

Getting Beauty Rest

Simply put, one needs to get ample amounts of sleep in order to help the prevention of wrinkles. Many doctors recommend 7-to-8 hours of slumber. With this amount of sleep, reports indicate that humans will produce more natural amounts of HGH (human growth hormone).

As such, this hormone is said to help make the skin more elastic and supple. This in turn will help to prevent a clumping of wrinkles. Cortisol is produced when the individual doesn’t get ample sleep. Skin cells are broken down, and thus wrinkles appear.

Food Options

Diet is also imperative when hoping to avoid both fine lines and wrinkles. Interestingly enough, cold water fish (salmon) are chock-full of vitamins associated with anti-aging properties. The fatty acid Omega-3 in particular is something quite good for the skin. It allows for human skin to stay both moist and elastic.

Even more fascinating, Omega-3 is often found in anti-aging creams and other facial products. As opposed to spending an exorbitant amount of money on high-end and expensive products, a more cost-effective way in getting the same benefits could include consuming a few portions of fish every week.

Avoid Both Sun and Smoking

Prolonged time in the sun is not good for the skin — particularly if one doesn’t apply any sort of sunscreen. The sun dries the skin out considerably, thus enabling it to crack and lose its elasticity at a high rate. Wrinkles are said to commonly increase by heavy exposure to direct sunlight.

Along with the sun, smoking is also quite bad for one’s skin. The smoke itself has an enzyme which attacks the collagen in one’s skin. Collagen is an imperative cog in keeping one’s skin elastic. Many studies have seen non-smokers have much better skin when compared to regular smokers.

Facial Treatments

The world of beauty products have exploded into a multi-billion dollar industry. There are a number of anti-aging creams found not only within online stores, but also over-the-counter in one’s local drug store.

For more extensive treatments, one can see a medical professional. Botox, fillers, and chemical peels are three highly popular methods in wanting to look younger/preserve one’s youth. Injections of collagen can also help one’s appearance.
