Wrinkles are a woman’s most feared aging factor. Even if we like to admit it or not, wrinkles start to bother us as soon as we observe the first fine line under the eyes. Let’s learn more about wrinkles and how to prevent them with these anti wrinkle treatments tips and tricks!
Some women are more predisposed to wrinkling skin than others …
TRUE. Elastin and collagen, the two substances that give your skin firmness, are not distributed evenly to all women. But that does not matter much. If you protect your skin from the sun, if you avoid smoking and avoid alcohol, your face will be less wrinkled than a of someone who unconditionally exposed themselves to the sun.
You need to pay attention to your skin before you reach the famous 30.
TRUE. It might seem strange because when you face looks flawless it’s quite hard believe that one day you will also grow old. And yet … Here’s a good tip: the skin should be moisturized every day starting in your teens!
Sun accelerates skin aging
TRUE. And it all occurs as you reach 40 years old. That’s the age when women who systematically avoid overexposure to sunlight look 10-15 years younger.
Anti-aging cream – a scam?
FALSE. Because anti aging creams contain vitamins-A, C and especially E, they slow your skin from wrinkling, neutralizing the harmful effects of free radicals. The most recent introduction of retinol in wrinkle-creams is a great step forward in the right direction for the cosmetic industry. Retinol strongly stimulates cell activity in the skin.
A face without wrinkles appears younger
FALSE. Sure a 16 years old girl will have a fresher complexion than a 50 year old woman , but the absence of wrinkles does not always denote youth. Do women who abuse plastic surgery in order to look younger, manage to actually look younger? Unfortunately they look nothing like a 16 year old – their faces look totally unnatural. The expression of youthful freshness is related to skin quality (soft, flexible) and especially to expression. It was said, not only once that youth and beauty come from the heart and they’re expressed through the eyes and the smile.
Although not such a comfortable solution, natural treatments are a very effective alternative to anti wrinkle products that you can get over the counter and they often have remarkable results. When you start a natural treatment you should know that is long lasting, requires patience and perseverance, but it totally worth the effort invested.
