How To Reduce Wrinkles

Erase the signs of aging with these tips for maintaining a youthful complexion

Aging may be inevitable, but that does not mean that your skin has to look its age. There are many advanced technologies out there along with simple remedies that you can practice daily in order to reduce wrinkles. Younger, smoother looking skin can be yours with less effort than you think.

You may love to get your suntan on, but according to New York plastic surgeon Darrick Antell, MD, sun exposure is the number one cause of wrinkles, so by limiting your time under the sun, you will protect your skin from developing wrinkles in the future. Wearing sunscreen is also important, not only to reduce wrinkles but for protecting you from skin cancer as well.

Smoking is also responsible for releasing an enzyme that breaks down the collagen and elastin in your skin, which contributes to more wrinkles, so remember that next time you reach for a cigarette. You should also make sure that you get enough sleep if you are hoping to reduce wrinkles. Aim for at least seven hours of sleep a day, the daily recommended amount. According to Yale dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, MD, your body produces excess cortisol when you do not get enough sleep. Cortisol breaks down skin cells, which makes your skin appear less elastic and thick.

Another way to reduce wrinkles is to eat foods like salmon and soy. Salmon is a great source of protein as well as the source of the essential fatty acid Omega 3. These fatty acids help nourish your skin, giving it a more youthful appearance. Soy also is known to help protect and heal some of the photo-aging damage causes by the sun, according to the European Journal of Nutrition. Just a glass a day of soy milk can help improve the structure and firmness of your skin.
