Growing older takes a toll on your skin. We lose collagen as we grow older and when that happens, the skin begins to sag and wrinkles develop. But aging isn’t the only reason skin starts to show wrinkles.
Even younger people can start to develop wrinkles if they don’t take care of their skin. You can get wrinkles as a result of the environment you live or work in (such as working outside) and what you eat can also affect your skin. Heredity factors also have a part in the wrinkling process.
Some things you can’t change when it comes to your skin, like hereditary issues, but wrinkling is something that you don’t have to live with regardless of your lifestyle or family health history. You want to do all you can to have healthy looking skin because when you look better, you feel better and have a more positive mental outlook.
Keep your skin healthier by doing all you can preventatively – and that includes taking vitamins and eating plenty of healthy foods. But since those steps alone won’t prevent wrinkles, you’ll want a little extra help.
You’ll get this help by using products that stop wrinkles from occurring or reverses signs of aging. One of the easiest methods to use to fight wrinkles is an anti-aging cream. These creams have ingredients that restore the skin’s moisture level. They contain botanical ingredients and are rich in vitamins. They can be used as a stand-alone treatment or applied before you put on any makeup.
Anti-aging creams work by locking in moisture, preventing the skin from continuing to lose softness. The minerals and extracts work to soothe skin that’s been damaged by wrinkles. These products provide the nutrients that your skin has to have, but that most people don’t get.
Anti-aging lotions are similar to the creams you can buy. These work to get rid of the wrinkles and give your skin a healthy appearance. Many of these products will contain Retinol, which is an antioxidant – and like antioxidants in food, Retinol helps fight against cell damage. Healthy skin cells result in healthier, younger looking skin.
Some wrinkles (like crows feet) are highly noticeable and stubborn to get rid of, but using Botox erases even those stubborn wrinkles. You can have Botox injections done in a doctor’s office, but these are painful, inconvenient and expensive treatments. You also have to continue having the injections, so the cost continues to grow. An alternative is to use a product containing Botox. You can find these products in cream or lotion form without the high cost of the injections.
