Wrinkles on the face are unavoidable. And as you get older, they become part of you because with age, the skin’s elasticity reduces and it gets thinner, causing thin lines on the face.
Did you know that your facial expressions can also cause premature wrinkling on a young face? Well, at that age, the skin gets back to normal without causing those lines on your face, but on a later stage in life affects it. Also, UV rays and smoking can cause wrinkles to form faster on your face, so you might wanna be mindful of that!+
There are a lot of skin care products that help get rid of wrinkles and also delay their onset, but here are a few tips that you can follow to get rid of wrinkles through your daily habits.
- Facial exercises in the morning
When you stretch your skin on a daily basis, it increases the blood flow through your body that gets oxygen up and running to all the cells. Doing facial exercises helps the facial skin to stretch and leaves the skin with a natural glow, with softer and wrinkle free skin. These exercises hep in production of collagen and elastin, which cause the skin to be more supple and healthy.
- Use your smartphone less
Yep, digital aging is true and it is here! So, the blue light from all digital screens – phones, laptops, tablets, televisions, etc. are major contributors for the skin damage, mostly on your face. Scientifically, the HEV radiation penetrates deeper layers of the skin, disrupting the production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. This constant need that we have of checking our phones and computers for messages, emails, scroll through social media, etc. is not just harmful for the eyes (or at least that’s what a lot of us thought), it can also get your skin wrinkly – especially the neck since the skin there is very thin and more prone to aging than the other parts of the body.
Using your gadgets less, with limited screen time is a very good and disciplined practice to keep wrinkles away. Also, using cosmetic products that contain amino acids and peptides help.
- Don’t squint
The wrinkles you see under your eyes – all because of squinting. The skin around your eyes is again very thin and prone to premature wrinkling, so you need to take care of it well. Whenever you head out, make sure you have sunglasses on so that you don’t have to squint to see. This also goes out for reading. Get reading glasses if you are having to squint to read. Check with your eye doctor if you’re having to squint to see that are further away from you.
- A wrinkle-free diet
What is a wrinkle-free diet? Foods that contain high levels of Vitamin C, low fat and have complex carbohydrates are super effective in giving you a wrinkle-free face and skin. These foods, like whole grains, give you healthier and better-looking skin. Keep your dairy intake in check because they make acne worse.
These small practices in your daily routine can really help you keep that wrinkly face away and enjoy the glow of a young, smooth, supple face for as long as possible.
