Oh, those wrinkles! We really hate them sometimes. We use creams, lotions and various products to get rid of them. But, are there any other ways to remove signs of aging? Yes, there are and I bet some of them are a complete surprise to you.
Change your lifestyle
Yes, you heard me right. Changing your lifestyle can significantly reduce those lines we hate so much. Even though we take the following things for granted, they are highly efficient in our battle against wrinkles. Various studies proved that non-smokers or past smokers who smoked heavily at younger age have less wrinkles than current smokers. The exposure to the sun’s ray can lead to the excess of free radicals in the skin which results in wrinkles. This is the reason why wearing a sunscreen both during summer and winter and wearing sunglasses is recommended by dermatologists. There is more to it. Antioxidants can retard the aging process as well. Whether applied topically in the form of a cream/lotion or consumed, make sure antioxidants become your best friend from now on. Under moisturized skin is more prone to wrinkles. Many studies also addressed the influence of sleep on wrinkles. The results were positive which leads scientists to develop an alternative pillow. In the meantime, the best option is to sleep on your back.
Change your diet
As we have said, consuming food rich in antioxidants such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries, plums, ginger, small red bean, etc. is beneficial in reducing wrinkles. Omega 3 fatty acids protect the skin from the sun, keep it hydrated and nourished. The sources of omega 3-fatty acids are salmon, tuna, sardines, herring, mackerel, soy milk, peanut butter, pumpkin seeds, spinach, parsley and watercress. Eating sweets and sugary food excessively is detrimental as these foods destroy collagen and elastin, the main proteins responsible for firm and strong skin muscles. Finally, consume food rich in vitamins. Top five anti-aging vitamins are vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E, niacin and vitamin A.
Surprising home remedies for fighting wrinkles
Olive oil.Massage the mixture of olive oil, a few drops of honey and glycerine onto your skin twice daily. Olive oil is the natural antioxidant. Honey is a natural moisturizer, while glycerine also induces the skin with moisture, but is appropriate for people suffering from psoriasis and eczema as well.
Aloe vera. Cut aloe vera leafs and extract their gel. Mix one teaspoon of aloe vera gel with vitamin E (you can find it in capsules). Apply the mixture on the skin and leave it to work for half an hour.
Ginger. We have mentioned ginger as powerful antioxidant. Grate ginger and mix it with a table spoon of honey. Consume this mixture every morning. You can make a paste from these ingredients and apply it on the skin for 15 minutes.
Other treatments. Finally, we need to mention topical and medical treatments as an effective way to fight wrinkles and aging skin. Many studies confirmed the efficacy of topical treatments such as alpha-hydroxy acids, retinoids, idebenone and pentapeptides. On the other hand, there are powerful medical treatments including botox, wrinkle fillers, chemical peels and dermabrasion. It is important to mention that you should wisely choose a skin clinic if you opt for medical treatments.
Our recommendation definitely goes to skin clinic based in Penrith known for its team of professionals and caring and efficient service.
Having glowing, young and beautiful skin is definitely not an easy task. However, with certain changes in life everything can be just as you want it to be.
