There has been a research conducted in the USA where twin siblings skin were compared for wrinkles.
The findings were that the sibling who limited their exposure to the sun had fewer wrinkles and generally looked younger than the twin who had experienced more sun exposure over the years. You can read more here.
2. Kick the smoking habit!
More studies have been conducted into the effects of smoking on health, and one discovery has indicated that cigarette smoke can trigger the releasing of an enzyme within the body that actively breaks down elastin and collagen two of the most important skin nourishing components you produce. Research conducted in London, again using twin siblings, showed the twin who smoked not only had thinner skin, but more wrinkled than the non-smoker.
3. Sleep well, and sleep on your back
Your body heals and repairs itself during sleep, so it is obviously good for your general health to get adequate sleep. Not getting enough sleep can force your body into producing cortisol, a stress hormone that is known to break down skin cells.A good sleep can make you look younger.
Not only this but, try your best to sleep on your back. If you have a favorite sleeping position, you may be in danger of creating something called sleep lines.
These lines eventually become engrained into your skin and do not go away once you are up and moving around.
Applying a good night cream formulated to target wrinkles will also encourage you to sleep on your back, while also giving your skin deep nourishing treatment while you sleep
4. Use a good moisturizer that is formulated for your skin type
A well-moisturized skin will always look better because the fine lines and dry patches on your skin will be far less noticeable. Good moisturizing treatments also help to plump up the skin surface by feeding and holding onto the skin’s natural moisture and to prevent the skin from drying out in harsh environments.You can read my earlier post on the best anti aging moisturizers here in case you missed it.
5. Avoid using soap and water on your face
Regular tap water and household soap can work together to strip the natural oils from your skin, so you are left with overly dry skin that will be prone to wrinkle more easily.
If you regularly wash your face with soap and water each day, do your skin a favor by switching to using a cleanser instead as they are formulated to be gentle on the skin of your face and will remove makeup and dirt without stripping your skin of its natural protective oils.
6. Use a proven topical wrinkle treatment
New research has shown that treating wrinkles directly with a specially formulated treatment can help to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and under-eye bags and slow down the formation of new ones.
You can get over-the-counter treatments from most leading beauty brands, or you can buy from Amazon but remember to check the ingredients listings before purchase to make sure they contain any of the following active ingredients: Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), Retinoids, Pentapeptides, and vitamin C, and antioxidants such as Idebenone.
Topical wrinkle treatments with these ingredients, when applied to your skin may help to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, while at the same time stimulate collagen production from within the skin.
