4 Quick & Easy Ways to Reduce Wrinkles
Millions of people throughout the world are more concerned about looking older than ever before. This could be because the media portrays younger looking people as being more successful in life, whether they are seeking career advancement or whether they are looking to get involved in a new relationship. While it used to take a face lift procedure to reduce wrinkles in years gone by, there are easier and more convenient methods that are used today.
1. Botox Injection Treatments
This treatment is ideal for men and women who want to reduce the appearance of horizontal forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows and certain types of neck wrinkles. Your plastic surgeon will inject very small amounts of Botox into the affected areas that will help the muscles in them to relax, thus reducing the appearance of the wrinkles. Patients usually notice a visible reduction in the appearance of wrinkles within three to five days.
2. Wear a Good Quality Sunscreen Product
This is one of the easiest ways to prevent wrinkles, as the sun has the ability to cause severe skin damage. For those who have to spend any amount of time in the sun, it is imperative that they invest in a high quality sunscreen, as this will prevent the sun from drying out the skin and causing premature wrinkles to appear. This will also reduce a person’s chance of developing skin cancer, which can be fatal if not detected in time.
3. Keep Your Skin Hydrated
This is probably one of the most important tips for ensuring that you keep your skin as wrinkle-free as possible. Because the body consists of a large percentage of water, it means that we need to replenish this on a daily basis. By drinking sufficient amounts of pure water on a daily basis, it will keep your skin as well as your body hydrated. Adding a good quality moisturizer to your daily skin routine will also assist with the hydration process.
4. Opt for More Fresh Foods Instead of Processed Foods
The saying ‘We are what we eat’ is so true. By consuming as many foods as possible that are in their natural state like fresh fruits and vegetables, we will be giving our skin the natural nourishment that it needs. Our bodies thrive on natural foods and your skin will soon reap the benefits of their natural antioxidant properties, as these are what are responsible for fighting against the free radicals which are responsible for a lot of skin damage and wrinkles.
By following these tips, a person will be able to effectively reduce wrinkles within a matter of a few weeks. However, it is also important to ensure that we take as good care as possible of our skin in order for it to stay looking youthful for as long as possible. It is always recommended to advise your plastic surgeon of any medical conditions you have and that you are currently using medication for prior to a Botox procedure.
