5 Effective Ways to Prevent and Correct Wrinkles
Nobody likes wrinkles. Whether you’re in your 20s or your 50s, these pesky little lines can be disheartening. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whichever age you are starting at! Here are five of my favourite anti-wrinkle tips to help you maintain a youthful glow:
Hydration, hydration, hydration!
The secret to healthy, plump-looking skin is hydration. If you’re dehydrated, your skin will appear dull and dry, making fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. So, drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. And, use a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid, as it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it a super hydrator for your skin. You can find it in almost all SeneGence skincare products, including the Daytime Moisturizer.
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that is commonly found in anti-aging products. It was once used strictly as an anti-acne medication, but has been found to be a powerful ingredient that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works by increasing cell turnover, which helps to exfoliate the skin and promote collagen production. Retinol can be harsh on sensitive skin, so start with a lower concentration and gradually increase it over time. Start by applying it only once a week for a few weeks to see how your skin will react. Try Advanced SenePlex+® Renewal Serum with Retinol for fast, effective results in a gentle formulation!
Get enough sleep
We’ve all heard the saying, “beauty sleep” - and it's true! Your body repairs itself while you sleep, which includes your skin. Lack of sleep can lead to a lack of collagen production, making wrinkles more noticeable. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night to give your skin a chance to recover. While you sleep, Neotight Rejuvenating Anti-wrinkle Serum gets to work rejuvenating tired skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Reduce wrinkles around the eyes
The skin around your eyes is delicate and can be one of the first places to show signs of aging. To reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, use an eye cream with kelp extract. Kelp extract is known to firm and tighten the skin, making it a great ingredient for reducing wrinkles. Apply the eye cream gently using your ring finger, as this finger exerts the least amount of pressure on the skin. Try Neotight Revitalizing Eye Serum or EyeCreme.
Protect your skin from the sun
One of the biggest contributors to premature aging is sun damage. UV rays can break down collagen and elastin fibers in your skin, leading to wrinkles and fine lines. Make sure to protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, or skincare and makeup that includes a mechanical shield, like SeneGence. You can also wear a hat and sunglasses to provide additional protection.
In conclusion, skincare products are great, but they are most effective when you are taking care of your skin from the inside as well. Think of them as a supplement to help your skin perform its best rather than a quick cure. If you are just starting, you can start with the basics and add on as you need to address specific concerns.
Keep your skin hydrated, use anti-wrinkle products with hyaluronic acid and retinol, get enough sleep, reduce wrinkles around the eyes with kelp extract, and protect your skin from the sun. By incorporating these tips into your daily routine, you can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and keep your skin looking youthful and radiant!
