How to prevent wrinkles

How to prevent wrinkles?

The first lines of expression, called wrinkles, usually appear on our face between the ages of 20 and 30. Normally we usually find them around the forehead, mouth or outer corners of the eyes. The main causes of wrinles are genetics and environmental factors to which the skin has been exposed. The signs of aging appear earlier in women, because men’s skin is 20% thicker. In addition, it has a higher collagen content and therefore helps to stay firmer and more compact. IN this article we are going to talk how to prevent wriknkles, causes and our solution.

Causes of wrinkles

  • Aging / Age: as the years go by, the skin loses elasticity and becomes more fragile. In addition, the production of the natural oils that we generate and the amount of fat in the layers of the skin decrease, which makes the skin dry, flaccid and expression lines more pronounced.
  • Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light: ultraviolet radiation accelerates the natural aging process, being the main cause of the appearance of early wrinkles, since it breaks down the connective tissue of the skin, which is made up of collagen and elastin fibers, which Found in the deepest layer of the skin (dermis). With so much exposure to this type of light, the skin weakens and wrinkles prematurely.
  • Facial gestures: we are making facial movements at all times, which means that expression lines and wrinkles end up being created. Also, as the skin ages, it loses its flexibility and no longer springs back into shape.
  • Tobacco and alcohol: the consumption of tobacco and alcohol influence the aging of the skin. As we have said before, the skin contains collagen and the consumption of alcohol and tobacco causes a negative effect on the collagen in the skin.

Prevent wrinkles effectively

  • Protect skin from the sun: exposure to the sun is one of the main reasons for premature aging of the skin. The sun emits ultraviolet (UV) radiation and the most common rays that reach us through our ozone are UVA and UVB rays. UVAs are the ones that cause sunburn, while UVAs penetrate deeper into the skin and damage cells in the basal layer of the skin. They are also responsible for the tanning of our skin, the cause of collagen reduction and therefore the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Sunscreen: it is important to protect the skin with some sunscreen so that it can block UVA and UVB rays, with a minimum of 15 sun protection factor.
  • Sun glasses: wrinkles usually appear earlier where facial expressions are repeated, which are usually when we frown, when we raise our eyebrows and when we smile. That is why the use of sunglasses can help you not have to strain your eyes so much and therefore not make certain facial expressions.
  • Sleep your hours: we must have a minimum of hours of rest, about 7-8 hours, since night is the time of day when our body takes the opportunity to rest, repair and recover. Regarding wrinkles, sleep is the moment in which the skin produces the greatest amount of collagen, with the intention of providing the firmness and flexibility it needs.
  • Do not smoke: we all know that tobacco is harmful and very detrimental to our health. Smoking is one of the causes of premature aging. If you stop smoking, blood circulation will improve, therefore, you will reduce your skin from aging faster:
            • Reduces oxygen and nutrients that nourish the skin.
            • It has many chemicals that harm the production of collagen and elastin.
            • The heat from cigarettes can dry out and damage skin cells.
  • Cleansing routine: it is important that we remove impurities from our skin, but always using a cleanser that balances the skin’s natural oils, not removes them.
  • Healthy diet: it is important that we follow a healthy diet to provide our body with the nutrients it needs to be healthy. In addition, we must continuously keep ourselves hydrated, since if cell activity works properly, we will ensure that, for example, the production of collagen and elastin remain at adequate levels, for when there are injuries and infections. Zinc, vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids are the most important ingredients to keep skin plump, healthy and firm:
          • Zinc: chickpeas, beef, garlic…
          • Vitamins: strawberries, peppers, tomatoes…
          • Antioxidants: broccoli, blueberries, artichoke…
          • Fatty acids: eggs, almonds, fish…
  • Reduce stress: stress can make wrinkles worse, since when we are anxious, our body releases cortisol and can cause various problems in our body. For example, it causes an increase in fat or even leads to an interruption in collagen production, facilitating the formation of stretch marks and wrinkles.
