Every woman is constantly looking for ways to improve her appearance or change her look. And there are plenty of things out there — from wrinkle cream to operations to Botox — to aid in the process. But one of the concerns that all women share is finding out how to grow old beautifully and prevent wrinkles. Here are some tips for maintaining healthy, wrinkle-free skin, long after you’re out of your teens.
Most of the methods women should use to ensure smooth skin as they age are preventative. In most cases, it’s harder to treat wrinkles after they appear. And you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars in the spa to get the type of skin you want. Here are some simple tips to keep your face youthful:
Get plenty of rest
Most women would agree that they don’t get nearly as much sleep as they need to. This can cause unsightly lines in the face and bags around the eyes. Sleeping 7-10 hours each night may provide your skin with the natural shine and moisture balance it requires on a daily basis. But just in case you can’t drop everything and start a better sleep regimen tonight, wrinkle cream might work. You may want to try Clinique under-eye concealer and cream. You apply the cream under your eyes at night to reduce the appearance of lines around the eye area, and the concealer hides the lines in the morning. Clinique’s RepairWear Day, a daily facial moisturizer, will also help with hydration and firming.
Drink lots of water
This really works! Incorporating 8-10 glasses of water a day into your diet will help you to eliminate toxins in the body that take away from the skin’s firmness and oxygen flow, so your skin looks smooth and moisturized. This can prevent wrinkles, as women with dry skin are usually more prone to wrinkles later in life. You can also keep track of your water intake by eating plenty of fruit throughout the day. And if you exercise (which is also a natural ‘wrinkle cream’), you may want to increase you water intake to reduce fatigue and regulate the blood flow in your body.
This is especially important in the summer months. Even if you don’t think you’ll be outside long, always apply sunscreen before going out. Not only does it help to prevent skin cancer, but it protects your skin from the harsh rays of the sun, and helps to keep your face from drying out — it’s one of the best wrinkle creams out there.
Ask for help
Ok, so let’s say you do exercise, drink lots of water, get plenty of rest, and wear sunscreen, but you still feel some wrinkles coming on. Not to worry. There are some cosmetic solutions that, in conjunction with healthy living habits, can help you to uncover your best face yet. Here’s what’s in stores these days:
While we can’t all get to the spa for weekly facials, there are ways to take care of yourself now to make sure you look your best later. Take some time to engage in some ‘wrinkle prevention’ of your own. You’ll be glad you did.
