In this article I will explain how to smooth wrinkles naturally and without resorting to invasive methods or worse, cosmetic surgery.
I state that, for me, wrinkles are part of our person and therefore we should only learn to accept them without fighting them but we can certainly learn some good practices to postpone their appearance or to try to smooth them out.
What are wrinkles and why do wrinkles form
Wrinkles are skin folds that appear in different parts of our body over the years. They are formed due to the stretching and contraction process of our skin, repeated over the years. The continuous movement in fact causes a decrease in collagen which leads to the breakdown of skin structures.
Factors that accelerate the formation of wrinkles
Wrinkles begin to appear on our body between 25 and 30 years in men and between 20 and 25 years in women. However, there are a number of factors that can cause the early appearance of wrinkles and other skin changes.
Among the most important factors that determine the formation of wrinkles are:
- genetic and physical constitution factors (against which we cannot do anything!)
- prolonged exposure to the sun
- incorrect diet and in particular a diet poor in antioxidants
- smoking cigarettes or cigars
- lead an unregulated lifestyle
How to prevent and delay the formation of wrinkles
To prevent and delay the formation of wrinkles we must avoid all the behaviors mentioned in the previous paragraph and we must have daily care of our skin.
Take the sun, for many people and also in my opinion, it is one of the pleasures of life but it is important (and also simple!) to do it with some important precautions:
- use sunscreen with high SPF, especially if you have fair skin. Attention, this does not mean that those with darker skin can avoid sunscreen, but it does mean that those with lighter skin will have to be even more careful and use even higher protection factors.
- avoid sunbathing in the middle of the day. It's simple: in summer, when the sun is above us and the shadows almost disappear, it is necessary to avoid sunbathing altogether. Just protect yourself with a hat and a t-shirt.
- avoid sunbathing by using reflective mirrors or tanning creams.
- avoid exposing yourself to the sun for hours and take frequent intervals to spread more protective sunscreen.
A'proper nutrition is one of the main antidotes against the early appearance of wrinkles! In particular, it is necessary to include in one's diet foods rich in antioxidants, which are essential to fight free radicals.
Among the foods they contain antioxidants I report you:
- Legumes, such as beans, peas, lentils, ...
- Fruit, especially citrus fruits, and more kiwi, blueberries and pomegranate.
- Vegetables, preferably with dark green leaves
- Fish among these varieties: anchovies, herring, cod, salmon, sardines, tuna and trout, all rich in Omega 3.
- Spices like ginger, turmeric, thyme, rosemary and sage
- Goji berries which contain a high amount of antioxidants.
It is also important to drink a lot throughout the day, to keep the skin hydrated.
Enemies of your skin are cigarettes and cigars and in general an unregulated lifestyle, with few hours of sleep.
