We all want to look and feel our absolute best and there’s truthfully absolutely nothing wrong with taking a little pride in our appearance and looking after ourselves. Each and every single year, hundreds of thousands of individuals from all across the globe spend their hard-earned money on so-called “anti-aging” creams that manufacturers claim have the ability to roll back the years and remove wrinkles altogether. Some of these creams are marginally effective, though nowhere near as effective as advertisers would have you believe. If you’re looking for effective ways on how to prevent wrinkles naturally, then as the title suggests, natural is the way to go. Take a look at these 3 natural tips and try to put them into practice as often as you can. Before you know it you’ll look younger and healthier than ever before.
Stay away from too much sun
We all enjoy sitting in the sun where it makes an appearance in summer, and a little sunshine is fine. The problem is that many people spend too much time in the sun trying to top up their tans and get some color onto their bodies. Besides the possible risk of sunburn and possibly even skin cancer, another downside to spending too much time in the sun is that according to many studies, one of the main causes of wrinkles is exposure to too much direct sunlight. If you’re serious about reducing wrinkles naturally, you’re going to have to avoid spending prolonged periods of time in the sun.
Besides the fact that it is smelly, expensive, makes you ill and can potentially cause cancer, another reason for you to quit smoking for good, or to not take up smoking in the future, is the fact that smoking actually ages the skin, causing it to dry out and become wrinkled and also cause dark circles. The main reason for this is that smoking contributes towards the release of a special enzyme which actually breaks down collagen in the skin, as well as elastin, both of which are very important for maintaining optimal skin health.
Embrace antioxidants and nutrients
There’s a reason why people that consume a diet made up predominantly of unhealthy junk foods and drinks tend to look older and unhealthier than they are, whilst people that consume mostly fresh and healthy produce look just that, fresh-faced, youthful, and healthy. When we’re exposed to free radicals such as toxins from smoke, and pollution, or chemical additives in food, these free radicals can attack skin cells, cause mutations that cause wrinkles to form, and possibly even lead to cancer as well. Antioxidants and various nutrients such as vitamins and minerals, however, help to defend against and destroy free radicals before they have a chance to cause any real lasting damage. If you use anti-wrinkle creams, look for ones that contain antioxidants, and make sure that you eat plenty of fresh, healthy, and nutrient-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables, and perhaps supplement your diet with a multivitamin a day.
