Whether you want to prevent wrinkles and discoloration, or smooth over the fine lines you are noticing now, there are ways that can help without going to the dermatologist and shelling out some big bucks. If you’re like me, in my 20s, I just washed my face in the morning and didn’t bother with moisturizing or sunscreen for that matter.
Big mistake. Before I knew it I was in my late 30s and my skin didn’t look so young and fresh anymore. So I started my quest to find out how I could refresh my face and start to prevent some discoloration and wrinkles I knew were going to effect my appearance in no time.
You can start to prevent wrinkles, first and foremost, by staying hydrated. Drinking water is so important at any age. It helps with.all your body systems and organs, and your skin is the largest organ in your body and the one you can actually see in the mirror.
The best type of skin cream for prevention should have retinol vitamin A in it.Retinol stimulates collagen production allowing for faster cell turnover, as well as the diminishing of pores, fine lines and hyper pigmentation. Sun freckles will be less noticeable as well.
This creates the room for new cells as the old cells die off. Another ingredient you should look for is vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant which can protect against sun damage
Co enzyme Q 10 may help protect skin from sun damage around the eyes. Peptides are another great one that used to be found in scar tissue healing and stretch mark cream, which is now used in different wrinkle creams. Another all natural one is different tea extracts, such as green and black tea.
The wrinkles you already have can be reduced in appearance with different ingredients. Olive oil has a unique composition of vitamin E and vitamin K and is one of the safest, also great for you internally as well.
You can put the oil right on your face and it will look rejuvenated. Pomegranates are loaded with antioxidants and said to be one of the best natural ingredients due to a high zinc content. Zinc calms skin irritations and inflammation. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), are citric and lactic acids that mildly exfoliate and stimulate the skin.
