Wrinkle Prevention in 4 Easy Steps

I might only be in my thirties, but that doesn't mean that I’m not panicking about the onset of wrinkles which seems to be coming in thicker and faster than I'd really like - initially I always thought wrinkles slowly progressed, I never considered that you could wake up and 'WHAM' you're sporting some mighty fine new facial creases. You may not realise it, but for most of us ladies, the first signs of aging start to appear between 30 and 35 years of age, depending on your health some are lucky enough to make it closer to forty, some [like myself] have fought the battle of impending fine lines since their middle twenties.

No one wants crow's feet to appear on their youthfully smooth skin - something that most of us spend our twenties dreading. Sadly, wrinkles are unavoidable - at some point or another, you will see the first signs of aging. That being said, there are a few things that you can do to prevent them, or at least, prolong their arrival.


Intrigued? Of course, you are - who wouldn't want to know how to prevent those pesky lines from appearing?

Eat lots of healthy foods

Did you know that a balanced diet can do wonders for your skin’s health? If you want skin that is happy and takes longer to age, you need to make sure that you are eating all of the right foods. Just like what you eat can affect your body’s health, if you eat the wrong things, they can also wreak havoc on your skin.

As well as following a diet that’s low in fats and processed foods, it’s also important to eat lots of fruits and veggies. Any foods that contain vitamins A, C, and E are great for your skin’s health, so make sure to eat lots of these. 

Give your skin some love

Don't leave your skin to fend for itself, take the time to look after it. Just like you take care of the rest of your body, your skin also needs some love.

Start off by putting a daily skin care routine in place - this should include cleansing, toning, and moisturising. You will also need to exfoliate, at least two to three times a week. For your moisturiser, make sure to opt for an anti-aging night cream, and a day cream with an SPF factor. A day cream with an SPF factor is crucial, as one of the most common causes of premature aging is sun damage. Many people don't realise it, but even on cold, cloudy days, your skin can still be damaged by the sun’s rays. 

A night moisturiser that’s anti-aging is a must. As when your skin ages, it loses some of its natural proteins - collagen and elastin, and without them, the skin starts to sag, and fine lines appear. However, if you use an anti-aging moisturiser that contains these proteins, you can prevent your skin from aging too quickly.

Sleep Time 

Sleep is so important for our health and it allows our body to rest while it recuperates from the daily damage, stress and hectic lifestyles we all lead. Getting a full restful sleep is key to good health and wrinkle prevention so make time to wind down before you catch some Zzzz's. Why not dim the lights, read a chapter of a new book, listen to some music or catch up on a show. Meditation is important in our home as we can relax our bodies into quick REM while also detoxing built up stress too. Youtube has some excellent beginner meditation lessons and guided tutorials. 

Some say that the material you sleep on too is important and many of Hollywood's leading ladies use silk or satin pillowcases to ensure there's no rubbing of their skin which can cause damage. Finally why not spritz your pillow or bottom sheet with some lavender essential oil spray or apply a few drops to the inside of your pillow so that your body heat activates the calming benefits of the oil.

Dermal fillers

If you aren't happy with the results from anti-aging products, the next step is to consider cosmetic surgery. While I have never been a big fan of fillers and injections but for some they're a great option and can look very natural. 

Dermal fillers are also known as wrinkle injections. They can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Improving your appearance, and making your skin look younger and healthier. Fillers are quick and painless, compared to other cosmetic treatments, like face lifts and they can be done within a matter of minutes, leaving minimal bruising and scarring, unlike many other methods. So are ideal for giving your skin an instant boost and reducing the signs of aging. 

If you want to keep your skin looking youthful, all you need to do is take the ideas above into account and take it a step at a time, stopping where you feel comfortable. While most of us strive to retain our youthful looks you also need to work on feeling comfortable in your naturally ageing body. Care and attention to your skin is good but trying to iron out every line, wrinkle and blemish isn't.
