5 Most Effective Natural Ways to Prevent Wrinkles

If there was one thing that plastic surgery has done right, it is that in the long-run, people became scared to look like, well, plastic. While you might be of the same thought, it’s only but human nature to want to hold back signs of skin aging for as long as you can. Who doesn’t want youth? Who doesn’t want an unwrinkled face?

How Not To Grow Wrinkles Before You Get Old

The realization that aging is a natural part of life has made more women and men embrace their wrinkles when these skin imperfections begin to show up. Many are learning how to get rid of wrinkles in very natural ways. If you’re interested, here are five tips on preventing wrinkles without going under the knife, enduring a painful injection, not even popping a pill:

Tip No. 1: Get sufficient hours of sleep.

Sleeplessness is one of the top causes of wrinkles and most people do not even realize that. Snoozing for sufficient hours and at fairly the same times trains your body to follow a circadian rhythm that follows a regular pattern of healing and rejuvenation. The cells in your body work overtime to renew and repair damaged tissues, including imperfections on your skin matrix, down to the cellular level.

Take advantage of your body’s natural ability to fight wrinkles simply by signing off at the same time every night and getting up 7 up to 8 hours after.

Tip No. 2: Stop stressing

Knowing how to better manage the circumstances and people that stress you already give you an advantage in better-preventing wrinkle development for longer. Chronic stress leads your body down a long and winding path of deterioration, not excluding your skin. Stress sets off an abnormal release and timing concerning your hormones, such as cortisol, which, in turn, act as switches to turn on or off certain mechanisms in your body. With changes in hormone-behavior, your body’s coping mechanisms are affected.

If you think you need a break, take it. You do need time to reset and recharge your thoughts. Use the time to relax but also, to re-think your strategy in managing stress and in stopping it from managing you.

Tip No. 3: Time your sun exposure

That both encompasses the time of day and the length of time that you are exposing yourself to the sun. Sunscreen will never be enough protection from UV, neither is there any product that can provide you with 100 per cent sun protection power. The best way to protect your skin from UV damage, therefore, is to stay in the shade as much as possible. You only need about 15 minutes of early morning sun time every day to get the healthy does of Vitamin D your body needs.

Sun damage is the number one cause of wrinkles. When choosing a sunscreen, make sure that your product is formulated with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. For daily use, go for at least an SPF 30 for both your face and your body. On a day out in the beach, you might want a higher SPF. Take note, however, that SPF that is above SPF50 will no longer make any real difference. Religiously apply your sunscreen without fail, the same way you would a Feg Eyelash Enhancer.

Tip No. 4: Live a healthier lifestyle

Do not forget that your skin is just as much a part of your body as any one of your organs are. That means that the foods you fuel your body with bears significant bearing on how your skin behaves.

Get loads of antioxidants, B vitamins, and Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids from your diet. More fresh fruits and vegetables help supply your skin cells’ requirements for moisture and nourishment that are necessary to energize cells, repair damages on the skin matrix, and rebuild your skin’s outer layer of protective skin. Make sure that your skin is receiving the nourishment it needs by engaging in regular workouts.

Tip No. 5: Quit your unhealthy habits

Other than putting down that unhealthy bag of chips and can of soda, you should also ditch that stick and taper your thirst for alcohol. Reserve that bottle for special occasions only.


"I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that,” Lauren Bacall once said. It is a good thing to be able to accept and embrace wrinkles but, growing one too soon is not an excuse.
