Here are eight non-surgical ways to reverse your skin’s aging process and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
1. Wear sunscreen to protect against wrinkles
Excess sun exposure can lead to damaged skin, including fine lines and wrinkles. Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to your skin every day — including cloudy days — for the best protection. Try UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 by EltaMD or Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 by Vivierskin, which can worn alone or under makeup.
2. Stop smoking to combat fine lines
Quit smoking as soon as possible to combat fine lines and wrinkles naturally. Smoking narrows blood vessels and restricts blood flow to your skin — leading to the breakdown of collagen. Stop smoking today, or ask your doctor about treatments that can help you stop smoking for good.
3. Manage stress to keep your skin healthy
When you’re stressed, your body produces more cortisol, which can lead to dry, unhealthy skin and more pronounced fine lines and wrinkles. Find ways to eliminate stress from your daily life, or find new, healthy ways to manage stress naturally. For instance, practice deep breathing and exercise regularly to effectively combat stress.
4. Stay hydrated for youthful skin
Water hydrates your skin and keeps it looking plump and youthful, while dehydration leads to dry skin and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Drink more water throughout the day and eat more fruits and vegetables with high water content, such as celery and watermelon. Also, try using Reparative Moisture Emulsion by iS Clinical to give your skin an added hydration boost.
5. Exercise regularly for glowing skin
Exercise promotes healthy blood flow and circulation, which helps deliver nutrients to your skin cells for glowing skin and improved skin health. Plus, sweating helps your body release toxins from your body and skin, and reduces the risk for acne and wrinkles.
6. Get more sleep for a youthful look
A good night’s sleep allows your skin to repair itself and restore its natural balance, while lack of sleep increases cortisol production and leads to dry, older-looking skin. Make beauty sleep a priority and start going to bed earlier to enhance the appearance of your skin every day.
7. Limit caffeine and alcohol intake
Beverages such as coffee, tea, and alcohol can dehydrate your skin and lend to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Swap these beverages out for water to keep your body hydrated, and make small healthy changes to your life as needed so you don’t require as much caffeine to stay awake. Also, drink alcohol in moderation to prevent it from affecting your skin health.
8. Meet with a licensed aesthetician
Visit a skin rejuvenation center and consult with a licensed aesthetician who can design a customized skincare treatment plan especially for you. Fortunately, there are several non-surgical treatments that can minimize signs of aging, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and photorejuvenation. Your aesthetician will work with you on developing the best possible treatment plan that can help you achieve your skincare goals.
