You can’t stop the clock but you can minimize the effect aging has on your skin, especially with fine lines and wrinkles.
What Causes Fine Lines and Wrinkles?
If your mom is prone to fine lines, you are likely to have them as well since we inherit intrinsic aging from our parents.
● Over 40 Years Old
When you’re over 40, natural oils, collagen and elastin decreases and fat stored beneath the skin’s surface starts to diminish, which are the main culprits of wrinkles.
● Natural Elements & Pollution
Sun exposure, free radicals through pollution and smoke also contribute to fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
How to Help Prevent the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 15 daily. Broad spectrum products filter out both the UVA rays leading to skin aging and UVB rays causing sunburn.
● Protect Against the Sun
Sit in the shade and protect your face with a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors.
● No Nicotine
Stop smoking. Cigarette smoke prematurely ages skin and raises your risk for cancer and heart disease.
