1. Shield yourself – from the mighty sun.
The sun’s ultraviolet rays are one of the major culprits of skin imperfections. As we age, our exposure to the sun’s powerful rays increases, most especially if we have frequent trips to the beach. Even if we are only taking outdoor walks, we are still exposing ourselves to the damage that may be inflicted by the sun’s rays. Remember, at about 9-10 AM, the sun’s rays are no longer effective in inducing Vitamin D activation in our bodies, instead, it is now at this time of the day when a different kind of ultraviolet ray is emitted – which is responsible for skin damage. The damage is compounded the more exposure we have, thus the presence of wrinkles becomes something that is seemingly unavoidable. Aside from wrinkles, too much exposure to the sun can cause skin cancer, which makes this specific pointer something too important to avoid.
Upon discovery of the rays’ negative effect on the skin, recent technology developed the sunscreens – produced at varying SPF levels corresponding to specific number of hours of exposure. This means, the longer you foresee yourself to be exposed at a moment in a day, the higher the SPF to use. So carefully plan each day right, so you would never allow a single moment to become “unshielded” against the mighty sun. Some make-ups nowadays come with different SPF levels, so it is advised to use those that provide long-lasting protection. Remember, prevention is better than cure.
2. Say a big no to chemical-based skin care products.
Chemical-based skin care products put your skin at greater risk than products that are safe and allergen-free. Some chemicals cause allergies, specifically some forms of dermatitis. You could be inflicting harm on your skin rather than applying beneficial ingredients. Thus, if you want to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, go for natural-based products. Preference should be given to products that are dermatologically tested. Aside from that, it may be advisable to go for a trial period first prior to maximally using the product. By this, you can determine if the product works for you or not.
3. Say yes to products promoting collagen and elastin production.
The problem of fine lines and wrinkles can be addressed at its main cause: collagen and elastin production. Aging results to a significant decrease of collagen and elastin, thus the skin loses its smoothness, suppleness, and its glow. Look for products that are organic-based, and those that target the main reason for its occurrence.
