Everyone would like to look as young as they probably can, particularly once they reach their mid thirties or early forties.
It's around this age that most people first begin to see the appearance of fine lines, especially around one's eyes which is the first symptom of aging. There are ways to delay the aging process by leading a healthy lifestyle and with the help of nature.
Common causes of premature wrinkles Smoking
Smoking is one of the most common causes of premature wrinkles. Smoking boosts the aging process and hastens the appearance of wrinkles. The huge amount of free radicals produced by smoke from cigarette is one of the major causes for premature wrinkles. If you want to stay young and prevent wrinkles, stop smoking right now and choose a healthy way of life. Sun Over exposure in the sun is not good for your skin. The damage caused by the ultraviolet rays of the sun is very harmful, leading to premature wrinkles. Stay out of the sun as far as possible. Always protect your skin from the sun by applying a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 to all exposed areas of the body.
Exposure to air pollutants, dust, chemicals and harsh lights are very harmful for the skin. Exposure to extreme pollution can lead to premature wrinkles and damage your skin badly. Remember to cleanse your face and hands when you get back after work. Before going to bed make a habit of washing and moisturizing your face and hands and apply a good night cream which will help to rejuvenate your skin as you sleep.
Honey and Glycerin: Mix two drops of honey, glycerin, and olive oil each and massage your skin.
Applying the juice of pineapple over the face will reduce the wrinkles. Allow this juice to dry on your face for about 15 to 20 minutes and then wash it off.
Ginger and Honey:
Drinking one teaspoon of ginger by mixing some honey in it will make your skin glow and will delay the formation of wrinkles as well.
Mash the tomato and apply it as a mask or you can slice the tomato in half and then just massage your face & neck with it. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then wash your face.
Avoid frowning and squinting a lot. If you need to squint to see it is better to get your eyes checked and get a pair of glasses or contact lenses. Wrinkling the forehead now and then and puckering the lips will damage the skin and cause premature wrinkles.
Rapid weight loss can cause wrinkles as the amounts of the fat cells (which have a cushioning effect) are significantly reduced. This causes the skin to sag and crease. Face wrinkles after weight loss is a very common problem and there are several facial exercises that you can include in your daily schedule to help increase muscle tone and prevent wrinkles.
Loss of Vitamin E
An essential vitamin for younger and healthier skin is Vitamin E. Depletion of this important vitamin can cause the skin quality to deteriorate. Include foods that are rich in Vitamin E in your daily diet to help your skin remain healthy and wrinkle free. You can also apply Vitamin E oil to your face every night. This will help to eliminate wrinkles and improve the texture of your skin. Vitamin E is rich in antioxidants and helps to protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants are an essential part for skin care as they bind free radicals and prevent them from skin damage.
Start sleeping on your back
Sleeping on the side or belly with the face on the pillow, is a common cause leading to wrinkle formation. People practicing this pose usually get a diagonal crease on their forehead which runs just above their eyebrows. Sleeping on your back eliminates this problem. Therefore, try not to sleep on the side or on your belly. When the face is in constant contact with the pillow, the odds of developing wrinkles are much higher.
Eat a Balanced diet
A good balanced diet is a must for healthy, youthful looking skin. Eat a balanced diet including fruits, vegetables, whole grain foods, seeds, nuts and legumes. A well balanced diet definitely helps to keep your skin healthy. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes; they dry the skin and causes wrinkles to develop.
Drink plenty of fluids
Drink at least 4-6 liters of water every day. This helps to keep the skin hydrated and to detoxify. It is one of the simplest and effective ways to hydrate and moisturize your skin from within.
Exfoliate and moisturize regularly
Exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. Exfoliating helps to eliminate the dead, dry skin cells, and support the production of healthy new cells. Moisturize your skin every day before applying your make-up. Avoid using harsh soaps or solid cleansing creams; instead use natural oils such as avocado oil to remove dirt and makeup.
