Wrinkles a sign of ageing? That is a wrong perception. Wrinkles do not only show up when we are getting old but also when we overdo a lot of chemicals and experiments on our skin. The natural ageing process causes everyone to develop wrinkles, especially on those specific parts of our body that are overly exposed to the sun, such as our face, neck, hands, and forearms.
For most of the people, wrinkles show up between the ages of 40 and 50 as the skin starts getting loose and the moisture in it goes away. Moreover, genetics also play a major role in wrinkle development. But it won’t be wrong if we say that sun exposure appears to be the biggest cause of those wrinkles on our skin. To further add to the facts, wrinkles are also a result of smoking.
To deal with those unwanted wrinkles, here is what you can do!
The Home Remedies
1. Banana Face Pack
Bananas are considered to be our skin’s best friend. They contain natural oils and vitamins that work very perfectly to boost our skin health. Skincare experts recommend applying the banana paste to the skin.
Here is how you can make it:
Take a ripe banana and mash a quarter of it until it becomes a smooth paste. Apply a thin layer of the banana paste on your skin and allow it to sit for 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off with warm water.
2. Olive Oil
This oil works as a great skin protector and many types of research suggest that even consuming olive oil may protect the skin from developing more wrinkles. Olive oil and its byproducts contain such compounds that can increase the skin’s collagen levels.
How to use:
It can be used as dressing on your salads or other food if you want to eat it, otherwise, you can apply a thin layer of olive oil on your face, neck and hands and let it stay overnight.
3. Topical Vitamin C
Vitamin C is considered as an antioxidant that helps to create collagen in the skin. It can be found naturally in many fruits and vegetables, such as rosehips, chilli peppers and guava. Applying vitamin C on skin, in any form can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of sun damage.
4. Probiotics And Yogurt
Various researches that have been done on skin issues shows that regularly consuming probiotics, such as those found in yoghurt may reduce all those unwanted wrinkles and will immediately boost the skin’s overall health.
In the study done for human, researchers have noticed the effects of applying probiotics. Probiotics make our skin stronger against irritating stressors like sunlight.
5. Silk Pillowcases
Silk pillowcases are definitely the best as they are very skin-friendly. These help to prevent and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Silk contains those proteins which are hypoallergenic, so it’s easy on the skin. A copper-oxide pillowcase can reduce fine lines in the skin.
How Do We Prevent Getting Wrinkles?
Medical treatments for wrinkles can definitely improve our skin appearance but, it has its own side effect too. It is recommended to follow the precautionary measures first and then any other treatment. The best way to avoid wrinkles is to protect your skin from the sun. Limit the time you spend outside when it’s sunny out, wear protective clothing like a hat and long sleeves, and apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 when you’re outside.
