Many people think that wrinkles are inevitable as you age, but really with the treatments that are available today, you really can look as young as you feel!
Whether you are just starting to see the first wrinkles, or you have considerable loss of skin elasticity, there are many ways to improve your skin.
The biggest villains of youthful skin are solar damage and smoking. They accelerate the natural aging process by breaking down the collagen and elastin that give skin its dynamic nature of extensibility and flexibility. Without their full capacity to provide the skin with recoil and strength, the skin eventually forms fine lines and prominent wrinkles.
Excessive skin laxity is a late result of damage to collagen and elastin. Examples of this would include prominent jowls, sagging chin, or excessive eyelid skin that hangs over the eyelash line.
Facial muscles also predictably contribute to prominent wrinkles along the forehead, between the brows, and along the lateral portion of the eyes known as crow’s feet.”
Some actions you can take to minimize wrinkles are to avoid the sun, wear sunscreen, quit smoking, get enough sleep, sleep on your back, don’t overwash your face, use moisturizer, and wear sunglasses and reading glasses if you need them, so that you don’t squint. It also helps skin elasticity to eat a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables, fish and soy.
