4 Ways To Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles

Wrinkles are often associated with aging and can appear as early as your mid-20s. While everyone ages differently and genetics can influence how early or prominent your wrinkles are, they are a natural and expected part of life for most people. As you age, your skin produces less collagen and decreases in fat, causing your skin to produce the lines, creases, and cracks we usually associate with wrinkles.

However, many find wrinkles aesthetically unappealing or may feel embarrassed or concerned about how they make them look to others and feel about themselves. For those who’d like to reduce the prominence of wrinkles, you can take a few steps to help yourself feel a bit younger and your skin more vibrant.

Protect Yourself From the Sun

The sun is one of the biggest causes of wrinkles, as its UV rays can damage the skin’s elasticity. Especially during the summer, when you might want to spend more time outdoors, you may be getting excess sun that could result in more prominent wrinkles in the long term. Protect the more sensitive areas of your face and body with sunscreen of at least 30 SPF and clothing like hats, long-sleeved shirts, and sunglasses.

Get Enough Good Sleep

Sometimes, sleep may feel like an afterthought if you have a busy and active lifestyle, but not getting enough quality rest can impact your skin and cause wrinkles to show more prominently. Poor sleep causes your body to create excess cortisol, a hormone often associated with stress, that can break down your skin cells. Good sleep is also beneficial, helping your skin stay thick and elastic by producing human growth hormones (HGH). 

Use Good Facial Products

4 Ways To Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles

Dry skin can shrivel skin cells, making wrinkles more pronounced. Using moisturizer and washing your face regularly can help your skin retain hydration, keeping that youthful appearance. Some moisturizers and sunscreens may use chemicals like retinol and vitamin C that can have similar effects, so it’s worth checking the ingredients of any products you purchase. 

Keep in mind – not all moisturizers have a prominent effect on decreasing wrinkles, and it may take several weeks or longer to see any results. If you’re seriously concerned about your wrinkles, it may be worth discussing with a medical professional for a prescription with scientifically proven results.

Consider Chemical Peels 

Chemical peels are a great and safe way to help reduce wrinkles by reinvigorating your skin cells. The process involves layering various chemicals across parts of your skin that burn away the top layer. While this may sound scary, it helps invigorate your skin by causing it to produce more collagen and re-elasticize it.
