An anti-wrinkle cream may lessen the appearance of your wrinkles, depending on how often you use it, the type and amount of active ingredient in the wrinkle cream, and the extent of the wrinkles you want to treat.
But as the saying goes, 'Prevention is better than cure', try these best anti-aging ways to improve and maintain your skin’s youthful appearance and you would not need to buy tons of products or medicine to salvage your sagging, wrinkled skin.
Protect your skin from the sun. Exposure to ultraviolet(UV) light speeds up the natural aging process of your skin, causing wrinkles and rough, blotchy skin. In fact, sun exposure is the number one reason for signs of aging in the skin, including uneven pigmentation. Protect your skin – and prevent future wrinkles – by limiting the time you spend in the sun and always wearing protective clothing and hats. Also, use sunscreen on exposed skin when outdoors, even in winter conditions.
Choose products with sun protection. When selecting skin care or makeup products, choose those with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15. Also, be sure to select products that are broad spectrum, meaning they block both UVA and UVB rays.
Use moisturizers. Dry skin turns plump skin cells into shriveled ones, creating fine lines and wrinkles long before you’re due. Though moisturizers can’t prevent wrinkles, they can temporarily mask tiny lines and creases.
Don’t smoke. Smoking causes narrowing of the blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin. It also damages collagen and elastin – fibers that give your skin its strength and elasticity. As a result, skin begins to sag over the years and wrinkle prematurely.
Eat a healthy diet. There is some evidence that certain vitamins in your diet help protect your skin, particularly vitamins A, C, B3, and E. More study and research is needed on the role of nutrition, diets and foods. If you’re concerned about the appearance of your skin, see a dermatologist. He/she can help you create a personalized skin care plan by assessing your skin type, evaluating your skin’s condition and recommending products likely to be effective. If you’re looking for more dramatic results, a dermatologist can recommend medical treatments for wrinkles, including prescription creams, botox injections or skin-resurfacing techniques.
