Less Wrinkles – How to Improve Your Skin’s Health and Appearance

Everyone wants less wrinkles, but not everyone knows how to prevent or at least delay the signs of aging skin.  Here’s a look at some of the things that you can do to improve your skin’s health and appearance.  These steps might save you from painful and expensive cosmetic surgery.

Take Your Vitamins

The vitamin A, C and E are of proven benefit to the skin’s health and appearance.  Vitamin C is a necessary cofactor for the production of the skin’s elastic fibers.  Your daily multi-vitamin probably contains those antioxidants, but it probably does not contain omega3 fatty acids, soy protein, tea extracts, grape seed or lycopene. 

Research has shown that omega3 fatty acids improve the skin’s firmness by 10% after three months of supplementation.  Other studies have shown that supplements containing soy, grape seed and lycopene, along with other nutrients, improve the skin’s structure and firmness after six months of use. 

Catechins found in green tea and some types of cocoa can help people have less wrinkles by protecting the skin from sun damage, improving circulation to the skin’s cells and improving hydration.  Other than the soy, all of these nutrients have antioxidant activity, which is important to the skin and the cells of the rest of the body.

Try to Get More Sleep

If you only sleep a little, your body produces too much Cortisol, which damages the skin’s cells and elastic fibers.  If you get plenty of sleep, your body produces more human growth hormone, which keeps the skin thick, firm and younger looking.

You can also have less wrinkles on your face by sleeping on your back.  If you sleep in certain positions, it will cause “sleep lines”.  When you are young, they disappear within an hour or two.  As you get older, they don’t disappear so quickly, if at all.  Sleeping on your side causes more wrinkles on your cheeks and chin.  Sleeping face-down causes your brow to look furrowed.  

Try Not to Squint

Squinting because of the sun or because you can’t see well will eventually cause crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes.  If you want less wrinkles around your eyes, always wear sunglasses and get your eyes examined regularly.  Sunglasses and most prescription eyeglasses block UV radiation, which is one of the causes of wrinkling and skin cancer.  So, wear your glasses.

Use a Good Moisturizer Every Day

A good moisturizer can help delay the signs of age more effectively than anything else.  It can even reverse some of the signs of age, if it contains the right ingredients.  First of all, don’t buy anything that contains petrolatum or mineral oil.  Those ingredients are detrimental. 

Do buy skincare products that contain coenzyme Q10, natural vitamin E, wakame kelp and Functional Keratin.  Those ingredients address all of the causes of skin aging. 

When you wash, don’t overdo it.  Even plain tap water strips the skin’s natural oils.  Whenever you do wash, follow-up with your new anti-aging moisturizer and very soon you will start to see less wrinkles.
