Great Ideas for Reducing Wrinkles

23 Nov

There are many factors which can affect the way and rate that a woman develops wrinkles. While wrinkles do appear due to the natural aging process there are some things you can do to slow this process down.

The next time you go to bed at night think about how you sleep. If you sleep on your stomach you are most likely crushing your face into your pillow. This can actually speed up the wrinkle process. Lying on your side can result in wrinkles developing on your cheeks and chin. The best anti wrinkle sleeping position is on your back!

While you may be trying to eat a low fat diet you should still include plenty of healthy Omega 3 Fat into your diet. Salmon and other oily fish are great sources of this along with delivering high amounts of protein. Fatty acids are thought to help nourish your skin and plump it up which helps minimize wrinkles.

Do you squint when you read or go outside in the sun? If so you should really consider treating yourself to a pair of quality sunglasses. A good pair of sunglasses will protect your eyes as well as the skin around your eyes, which is normally where wrinkles develop.

Did you know that you can actually wash your face with water too much? By washing with regular tap water you are stripping your skin of important minerals. This dries out your skin resulting in wrinkles. Instead wash your skin with a good facial cleanser and get into the habit of moisturizing your face.

Damage from the sun is one of the main causes of skin damage including wrinkles. You can help minimize this damage by doing a couple of things. First get into the habit of using sunscreen on your skin. Many facial moisturizers now come with UV protection built in. You may also want to try using products which contain Vitamin C. This vitamin has been shown to help increase collagen production and protect you from UV damage.  Skin creams with Vitamin C have been shown to help reduce puffiness, redness, dark spots and help reduce wrinkles.

Using skin supplements which include soy are also thought to help minimize the development of wrinkles. If you cannot find a skin care product with soy as an ingredient, taking soy supplements has been shown to be just as effective.

Use these tips and ideas to help slow down not just your aging process but the rate at which you develop wrinkles.
