Are you starting to see fine lines and creases as you look in the mirror? Wrinkles come to most people as they age. The skin loses elasticity and fat, allowing the muscles to carve lines along their regular paths.
But there are ways to prevent wrinkles leaving their mark, and even methods to smooth them back out again. These are our top three tips for keeping wrinkles at bay:
- Drink plenty of water! Dryness is the enemy of healthy looking skin. As it dries out, your skin contracts and wrinkles, like a raisin. Staying hydrated from the inside out is the first tip to keeping the fine lines at bay. Plain water is better than juices, which contain a lot of sugar, but consuming chia and flax as part of your diet can help you stay hydrated for longer.
- Exfoliate and Moisturize! The top layer of skin is made of dead cells held together by oils. Exfoliation, even a gentle buffing with a terry cloth washcloth, will remove the dead skin cells and the oils. Using a good facial cream will lock in the natural moisture in your skin and protect it from dehydration.
- ACE your diet! Get plenty of foods with vitamins A, C, and E like dark leafy greens, walnuts, and citrus. These nutrients help your body produce collagen, which helps the elasticity, or rebound, of your skin.
