Some wrinkles are based on genetics and skin type. For example, people with lighter complexions tend to get more sun damage and wrinkles than those with olive to dark skin tones.
Lifestyle also has a lot to do with the future of your wrinkles. Smoking can negatively affect the skin leading to wrinkles. These come from the action lines created by smoking around the mouth to and crows feet and the outer eyes from squinting from smoke, just to name a few. People who smoke also tend to have a grey hue to their skin giving them an unhealthy appearanc.
Drinking alcohol is also not recommended as part of a healthy skin care regimen. Eating an unhealthy, unbalanced diet can affect skin negatively as it does not provide nutrition for the body that is essential to healthy skin. Below are some ideas to maintain healthy skin and prevent wrinkles:
Eat a healthy diet/take vitamin supplements such as, fish oil, eat foods high in omega 3 fatty acids such as salmon, avocado, and olive oil
Drink plenty of water. This flushes toxins from the body and hydrates skin giving it a hydrated appearance
Wear a daily moisturizer with SPF. This keeps the skin moist and supple and prevents sun damage which can cumulatively lead to wrinkles over time
Use a retinol night cream. Retinols boost collagen and help to prevent fine lines and wrinkles from setting in
Cosmetic Botox injections. Use Botox injections as a way to relax muscles and to prevent extreme facial expressions that can lead to wrinkles such as wrinkles to the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes
Wear sunglasses to prevent unnecessary squinting which may lead to wrinkles. Have vision checked regularly as squinting can lead to wrinkles around the eyes from not being able to see or read clearly-you may need glasses or a new prescription for glasses
These tips will help you prevent wrinkles later in life. Also, remember to apply sunscreen daily and to get your skin examined regularly.
