Wrinkles are one of the plainest signs of aging, and any adult can get them. Some people may turn to Botox or other medical procedures to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or to prevent them from forming. Luckily, there are many natural ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. These home remedies will take longer to work, but it will be worth it if you stick with it.
Vitamin E is one of the best-known vitamins that can help to support the appearance of healthy skin. This vitamin is often included in vitamin gummies that help to optimize the appearance of hair and nails too. The easiest way to take in more vitamin E is to use vitamin and mineral supplements. Make sure you talk to your doctor before adding new vitamin and mineral supplements to your diet. Some supplements can interfere with medications.
If you do not want to take pills or gummies, you can instead include more vitamin E in your diet by eating the right foods. Vitamin E is most easily found in nuts, seeds, and leafy green vegetables. All you need to do to make this natural remedy work is eat these types of foods more often.
Improve Your Sleep Schedule
Your body does its best recovery when you are asleep. When your body is not busy doing anything else, it can focus on healing and producing hormones. The key hormone involving wrinkles is a simple growth hormone. These hormones help to keep the skin more elastic and vibrant. Both of these things help to keep skin looking younger. The more sleep you are able to get, the more time your body has to produce these hormones.
Of course, your body continues to produce hormones when you are awake. However, some of these hormones are counterproductive to preventing wrinkles. One hormone your body produces is called cortisol. This hormone, while it does other great things for your body, also reduces your skin’s elasticity. This can lead to gaining more wrinkles.
Another way to support your skin’s elasticity is to drink more water. Staying hydrated (by drinking water, as opposed to sugary, caffeinated, or alcoholic drinks) can help to keep your skin looking toned and looking more youthful. The standard recommended daily amount of water to drink is about eight cups. This can vary based on how much you exercise (people who exercise need more water) and what altitude you live at.
Too much sun exposure can lead to your skin looking more wrinkled and older in general. Think about the last time you saw someone who tanned often. Their skin may have a nice color too it, but it is often leathery as well. Wearing sunscreen when you go out can help to prevent wrinkles from forming as quickly as they might if you did not wear sunscreen.
In the same line of thinking, it is best to avoid being out in the sun for too long, even if you are wearing sunscreen. Avoiding using tanning beds entirely if possible. This will protect your skin from radiation.
Lastly, it is important to moisturize your face often. It is better to use a moisturizer that is specifically made to be used on the face. This is because the skin on your face is made up differently than the skin on other parts of your body. Other moisturizers will still work, just not as well.
When shopping for a new moisturizer, make sure to read the ingredients. Moisturizers that include vitamin E, vitamin C, coconut oil, or shea butter will work well.
Try these tips to approve the appearance of your skin. Since these are home remedies, you will need to use them consistently for several weeks to see results. So, keep with it! It’ll be worth it!
