The lines of laughter usually have nothing to do with laughter and, over time, can join the multitude of other wrinkles that cross your face. While aging is inevitable, fine lines and dry skin do not have to be. If you find more and more wrinkles when you look in the mirror, several general changes in your lifestyle and some topical treatments can help to naturally affirm your skin and create a smoother and smoother appearance.
Swap serum for cream
An intense moisturizer not only combats dry skin. It can also help volume the skin cells to almost instantly reduce the depth and severity of wrinkles and fine lines. If you’re struggling with both wrinkles and dry skin, you may want to avoid light anti-aging products, such as serums and gels, and concentrate on a cream with a thicker, more emollient texture. Some of the best moisturizing ingredients for a skin care cream, according to the skin care criticism, include glycerin and shea butter.
Look at the active ingredients
Many anti-aging skin treatments contain proverbial “snake oil” ingredients that they hold to serve those purposes when they do not have a lot of scientific research to back them up. However, some anti-aging creams really do help reduce wrinkles; you just need to know what active ingredients to look for. For an effective treatment of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging, use a cream that contains some of the following: coenzyme Q10, retinol, copper peptides or alphahydroxides.
While the anti-wrinkle cream will be used for nighttime use, your day cream should contain sunscreen. The sun is one of the main causes of wrinkles, and can be more damaging to very dry skin whose barriers and defenses of natural moisture are already compromised. Ideally, your skin care product should have a minimum SPF of 30, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
Avoid hot showers
A warm bath or shower can be very pleasant, but it can take away from your skin’s cells its natural oils and moisture. This can worsen dry skin and therefore the appearance of your wrinkles. Instead, bathe or shower with warm water and limit your bathroom to 10 minutes.
