“Cures” for the Common Wrinkle

Laugh lines. Frown lines. Crows feet. However you refer to them, they’re wrinkles. Yes…we have them too. And, like many, we’ve searched far and wide for the fountain of youth.

Unfortunately, genetics plays a role in the onset of wrinkles, and while we haven’t found the cure for the common wrinkle, there are ways that may help to minimize and possibly delay their debut.

Here are some helpful tips to incorporate into your daily anti-wrinkle beauty routines:

Shield your skin with sunscreen. Not only during the Summer time. And, not only when the sun is shining. Wear sunscreen year round to protect your skin from harmful rays. Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen that provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays that can damage cells and cause premature aging.

Yet, oftentimes stress can weaken our emotional and physical wellbeing. So, whether you practice yoga, meditate, or go for long walks, these are all great ways to manage stress and to help your body maintain a stronger immune system.

Slough off those dead layers. Exfoliation helps to rid your body of dead skin cells, allowing skin to breathe, new cells to regenerate, and beauty products to better penetrate the skin. Exfoliating once a week is often sufficient since over-exfoliation can damage the skin. For less abrasive exfoliants, try sugar scrubs and yogurt and oatmeal masks.

Eat your super foods. In addition to maintaining a skin-healthy diet high in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidant-rich foods are important in fighting free radicals that cause oxidative damage to cells that can lead to premature aging. Antioxidant-rich super foods include raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, pinto beans, apples, and our favorite…dark chocolate!

We confess that we have to work on embracing more “ohm”. But, we’ve got the other three well incorporated into our beauty routines. So, while we can’t promise you a cure for the common wrinkle or the fountain of youth, maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle can help keep you looking and feeling younger.

Be kind to your body!
