Seeing your first wrinkle in the mirror is one rite of passage no one looks forward to. Many spend a great deal of time and money looking for a “fountain of youth” to keep from aging and getting wrinkles. Fortunately, while there is no magical elixir to stop aging, there are some simple steps you can take to help keep your skin looking its best and prevent wrinkles from forming prematurely.
Drinking the recommended amount of water daily can help keep your skin looking plump and wrinkle free. Drinking enough water not only helps keep it moisturized and voluminous, but also helps flush away toxins which can cause inflammation and swelling on your skin.
While drinking water helps keep skin hydrated from the inside, moisturizing with a high quality moisturizer is necessary for keeping the outside of skin hydrated and healthy. Wrinkles form when aging skin becomes thin and dry. Choosing a good moisturizer that contains Vitamins A, C and E can help prevent skin from losing its elasticity and slow the premature formation of lines and wrinkles.
While many people think that Botox can only be used to correct existing wrinkles, it is also a great tool for preventing wrinkles in the first place. Botox injections freeze targeted muscles in the forehead region which are responsible for causing the lines and wrinkles that form later in life. By getting Botox before these wrinkles appear, you can help stop these lines and wrinkles right in their tracks.
These three tips can help you slow the formation of wrinkles and keep you looking your best. If you already have some wrinkles that you want to get rid of though, don’t worry!
