Aging is inevitable. There’s no way to avoid it. But just because you’re getting older, doesn’t mean that you’ve to look the part as well. With a proper regimen and the right products, you can slow down your wrinkles from appearing on your face, not to mention have a skin which radiates and glows.
What are Wrinkles?
Basically wrinkles are lines or creases which appear on your skin when it starts to lose its elasticity. Many factors can contribute to this, your lifestyle and sun exposure – the most common culprits. As you get older, your skin doesn’t produce as much elastin and collagen which keeps your skin taut. Because of this, your skin doesn’t stretch enough and starts to sag which results in wrinkles.
But worry not! Here are some anti-aging tips which can help in increasing the collagen and elastin production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your skin.
Use an Anti-Wrinkle Cream with Retinol
Research says that retinol is one of the most effective ingredients in the fight against wrinkles. A regular use of anti-wrinkle cream with retinol and other dermatologist recommended products can help prevent wrinkles and minimize the ones that are already there. However, don’t use just any product. Use a product which is specifically designed for your skin type.
Smoking is injurious to your health and it is particularly bad for your skin. Smoking releases enzymes that decrease elastin and collagen production thereby contributing to premature wrinkles. Cut down or better yet – quit. You’ll do your skin and your body both a huge favour.
Avoid the Sun
Do not step out of your home without applying sunscreen or without a pair of shades irrespective of the season. Especially in a country like ours it is all the more important to use a sunblock over SPF 30. Sunscreen blocks UVA/ UVB rays that can age skin and of course a terrible sunburn.
Use a Men’s Face Scrub
Use a scrub which exfoliates the skin and which gets rid of dead skin cells. This encourages the growth of new ones. A scrub for men also helps in smoothening the fine lines to minimize the overall appearance. However, don’t use it on a daily basis. Twice or thrice a week is more than enough.
Exercise and Eat Right
As basic as it sounds, this is your way to a healthy and youthful lifestyle. Eat more and more fruits and vegetables because they’re packed with anti-oxidants and other aging signs. Citrus in particular is full of vitamins which help in maintaining a healthy and nourished skin. Also exercise on a regular basis to keep your body healthy and toned. Exercise helps you to regenerate your muscles and keeping your body active which in turn makes sure that your body appears youthful.
