There are many different creams and serums on the market that promise to remove wrinkles from skin. Wrinkle reduction creams and lotions may improve the look of skin, though the best way to keep skin looking young is to take preventative measures. Even skin that is already wrinkled can be improved by following a few simple steps.
The first rule of wrinkle-free skin is to avoid the sun. It is crucial to apply sunblock whenever venturing outdoors. The sun is strong at all times during the year, including during winter months. Therefore, choosing a moisturizing lotion that contains sunblock is an excellent way to avoid the sun's harsh rays. Next, avoid smoking of any kind, since smoking leads to wrinkled skin.
It is believed that cigarette smoke contains a chemical that causes the skin's elasticity to deteriorate. Additionally, some studies have shown that cigarette smoke also causes the skin to appear thinner, which, in turn, makes skin more susceptible to natural elements such as sun and wind. Many studies have also shown that people who do not get enough sleep tend to have more wrinkles. Since sleep is needed in order to repair skin's elasticity, it is important to sleep for at least six hours each night.
Wrinkle reduction can also be achieved by eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, and salmon. These foods are known to contain essential vitamins, nutrients, and fats, which help the skin to look younger. By simply changing one's diet, wrinkles may begin to diminish. Topical treatments may also help with wrinkle reduction, though the type of treatment chosen is important.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) within the United States has approved Retin-A® as a wrinkle reducer. Studies have shown that prescription Retin-A® effectively helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to topical creams and ointments, various cosmetic procedures have been proven to reduce wrinkles. Botox®, chemical peels, wrinkle fillers, light resurfacing, and some types of dermabrasion can help with wrinkle reduction.
Anyone considering a cosmetic procedure in order to aid in wrinkle reduction should seek out a qualified plastic surgeon. Undergoing any kind of cosmetic procedure without the assistance of a licensed surgeon or cosmetologist is not recommended. While these procedures can be useful, following the natural steps listed above will also help to reduce wrinkles without medical intervention. While seemingly impossible, wrinkle reduction can be achieved by taking care of one's skin properly.
