4 Surprising Ways to Reduce Wrinkles

Easy ways to Reduce Wrinkles

Unfortunately, aging is inevitable. However, wrinkles don’t need to be. So, we want to help prevent your wrinkles from ever becoming a problem. Take a look at these four surprising ways you can reduce wrinkles and limit the risk. Before we get started, you might want to remember this point: aging isn’t the only thing that causes wrinkles. So a lot of your habits and the lifestyle that you lead may be contributing to your premature aging problem.

1. Sunscreen

It’s not too late to start wearing sunscreen and reduce your wrinkles. Sun is great for you, you need that vitamin D. However, if you spend too much time in the sun, unprotected, it’s only going to deepen your wrinkles. So, you should apply sunscreen every morning. If you plan to swim then you’ll want to reapply it. In an ideal world, you will reapply your sunscreen every few hours. Be sure to invest in a good quality sunscreen that was specifically designed for your face (many BB creams and foundations contain SPF).

2. Wear Sunglasses

Wait, what? Yup, you read it right. You took time out to slather sunscreen all over your face, but it won’t do you much good if you spend your day squinting. So, make sure you invest in a high-quality pair of (polarized, preferably) sunglasses. Your crows feet will thank you or… your lack thereof. Just make sure you put your sunscreen on first and reapply it around your eyes regularly.

3. Sleep Well

A lack of sleep contributes to high stress levels. Chronic stress can cause a whole host of health problems, and one of those is signs of premature aging. So, when someone says you can sleep when you die, you can tell them you’d prefer that to be later rather than sooner. A lack of sleep and chronic stress can also contribute to depression, which can increase your risk of wrinkles.

Bonus points if you can manage to sleep on your back. Your face on the pillow can contribute to wrinkles. If you are a side sleeper, though, using a pure silk pillowcase may help you avoid wrinkles. It’s also a great way to keep your hair healthy and it’s less likely to break when you sleep with silk pillowcases. That sounds like a win win!

4. Quit Smoking

This is two-fold. First, smoking is likely to contribute to wrinkles around your mouth. As they regularly constrict they lead to fine lines which will only get deeper the more this pattern is followed. You may also want to reconsider your penchant for using straws in all your beverages. The second aspect of smoking is the chemicals that you are inhaling. Your blood vessels narrow, thanks to nicotine, which means your skin can’t get the nutrients that it needs… thus, creating (or worsening) wrinkles. So, smoking is bad for you on every level.
