This article is all about what are wrinkles, what causes them, and what increases their appearance. It also looks at some methods that people use to reduce wrinkles.
first wrinkles tend to appear on a person’s face, in areas where the skin naturally folds during facial expressions. They develop due to the skin becoming thinner and less elastic over time, for as you age your skin produces less of proteins collagen and elastin, which form the connective tissue that supports the skin. As this layer breaks down, the skin becomes weaker and less flexible. Also, the UV rays break down the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin.
Wrinkles are a natural part of getting old, and there is no reason to dread getting them. However, there are a few natural and medical treatments to slow the signs of aging:
1) The most important of all is limiting the sugar intake, as it sets off a process of glycation, and advanced glycation end products break down the collagen in your skin;
2) Smoking is bad for your health for lots of reason but many people don't know that it also can age your face prematurely;
3) Showing your skin some love with coconut oil, aloe vera, egg whites, banana mask, olive oil, vaseline, cucumber mask, etc. They don't just make it smoother but also help skin retain moisture which makes your face appear fuller;
4) Beta carotene and retinol (vitamin A) are often ingredients in the cosmetic anti-wrinkle creams but it’s not necessary to buy a product to get access to beta carotene. Eating a balanced diet is the best way to get any micronutrients like beta carotene (vitamin A) which is found amply in dark leafy greens such as kale and spinach, sweet potatoes, broccoli, peas, carrots, and Roman lettuce (you can add a little oil to help the body absorb the nutrients);
5) Applying a topical gel containing vitamin C can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of sun damage on the skin;
6) Using a topical cream containing zinc and selenium can block some UV radiation that causes wrinkles. It also beneficial for inflammatory acne and related scarring. Your body can absorb zinc more efficiently from the foods (beans, dairy products, fortified cereals) that you eat than from supplements;
7) Niacinamide (vitamin B3) has great benefits. It helps build keratin (a type of protein) that keeps the skin firm and healthy, retain moisture, reduce inflammation and dark spots after acne, and pigmentation after pregnancy. It also minimizes pore appearance. Vitamin B3 is found in egg, cereals, green veggies, beans, fish etc.
Lastly, I would like to emphasize on peptides which work miraculously on your skin by boosting your collagen production. With age, collagen production declines. As a result, your skin sags and loses its elasticity, and you get wrinkles. Incorporating peptides into your skin care routine can help to a great extent. You can use both topical and oral peptides the natural source of peptides are milk, egg, soybeans, fish, and meat.
