Wrinkles, as hard as we try we cannot avoid them. However, we can delay their onset and mitigate them. In this article you will discover the 10 best anti-wrinkle tips!
1. Clean and erase
The basis of a beautiful skin is cleaning.
Every morning and every evening, remove impurities and/or makeup with a tonic lotion, micellar water or makeup remover, before applying your cream.
For even deeper cleansing, at least once a week, scrub the face and entire body. The scrub allows the removal of dead cells and also promotes the absorption of the care products you use.
We particularly recommend a scrub with coffee grounds and olive oil.
2. Apply a day cream
Every morning, after cleansing your skin, apply a cream rich in moisturizing agents to your body and face.
For maximum effectiveness, apply the cream with a light massage, emphasizing deep wrinkles.
Instead of the cream, you can also use shea butter, argan oil or aloe vera gel, a natural miracle product for the skin, rich in amino acids, minerals, elements and vitamins.
3. Apply a night cream
At night, even more than the day, your skin needs to be hydrated.
During the night, she will not be attacked by pollutants, cold or makeup.
Before going to bed is therefore the moment to focus on applying a moisturizing cream.
You can apply a richer cream at night than during the day.
4. Bet on antioxidants…
To avoid the appearance of wrinkles or limit their development, consume foods rich in antioxidants. The main natural antioxidants are bioflavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins C and E, and selenium.
Among the fruits, red berries are favored because they fight effectively against free radicals, which accentuate aging. In general, remember that berries and citrus fruits are those that contain the largest amounts of antioxidants.
Side vegetables, beet, artichoke, asparagus, broccoli, red cabbage, yellow pepper are the richest in antioxidants.
5…. And on a good diet in general
For beautiful skin, we must eat well!
For this, add to fruits and vegetables full of antioxidants, avocado, nuts, dark green leafy vegetables, seaweed, oily fish, vegetable oils rich in omega 3 and 6, or turmeric.
Indeed, the skin needs essential nutrients and in particular vitamins A, C and E, selenium, copper, zinc and "good fats": omega 3 and 6.
It is essential to drink plenty of water to hydrate well and to eliminate toxins and therefore, keep a beautiful skin.
The quantity is not the same for everyone, especially depending on what you eat, but it is often advisable to drink around 2 liters a day.
You can also drink green tea, very rich in antioxidants.
7. Use vegetable oils
Instead or alternating with cream, vegetable oils are valuable allies against wrinkles:
- The apricot kernel oil will tone while delaying skin ageing.
- Castor oil, plumping, will help your skin maintain its hydration.
- Olive oil, thanks to its wealth of omega 3 and antioxidants restores, softens and softens the skin.
- Borage oil nourishes and prevents skin ageing.
- Argan oil is the star to work against wrinkles thanks to its concentration of vitamin E.
8. Limit UV exposures
You can use the best creams and oils, if you spend your time tanning without protecting yourself, you will not be able to avoid premature wrinkles.
Indeed, by penetrating the skin, UVA and UVB cause damage inside the cells, damaging the collagen fibers, which affects the elasticity of the skin.
To protect yourself, use appropriate sun protection and limit exposure, especially between 11 am and 4 pm
9. Quit smoking
Cigarette or pretty skin, you have to choose!
Indeed, tobacco impairs the microcirculation and causes premature aging of the skin that becomes dry, dull and wrinkled.
A healthy lifestyle is the basis for beautiful skin!
10. Do facial exercises
Like the rest of your body, your face, which has more than 50 muscles, needs exercise.
The ageing of the face is characterized mainly by a relaxation of the cheeks, a descent of the corners of the mouth and "strings" of the neck.
So, to strengthen your face, start with a smile! Then have fun making faces: go up and down the eyebrows without frowning, alternate deep smile and "o" with the mouth, down the ends of your mouth with a pout. Force the gestures and each time, now for a few seconds, release and repeat several times.
