Removing Wrinkles

All throughout your life you spend time laughing, crying, thinking, and a whole other host of activities. All of these actions you perform do leave their mark, and often that with an eventual wrinkle in your skin. Wrinkles can signify wisdom and valuable experience, but while we like to have wisdom and valuable experience, we'd rather not have the marker. If you are seeking to get rid of your wrinkles, then here are a few tips for you to try.

There are countless products out there promoting "endless youth," "reverse aging," and any other gimmick that advances the idea of not aging. If you're looking to at least slow the physical advances of age, there is a right way to go about things. You don't want to take the easiest scam out there—you want to make sure you know what you're doing to your body and what exactly is going on with your wrinkles.

Start by knowing what increases your chance of developing wrinkles. Smoking is a huge cause for wrinkles. Smoking affects your whole body, not just your lungs; so, you should know that smoking affects your skin and without a doubt promotes wrinkle growth. Your skin type can actually contribute to your chances of getting wrinkles (fair skinned people are more susceptible to the effects of the sun). Sun exposure also contributes to wrinkles. If you're a sun worshipper, get ready for those wrinkles if they haven't come already. Too much sun exposure definitely harms your skin, and apart from wrinkles, can in fact cause cancer. (Your hairstyle and the way you dress also contribute to the effect the sun may have on you.)

The best way to remove wrinkles is simply to prevent them. Always use sunscreen when outside. There are several moisturizers and other skin care products that carry SPF—take advantage of this and protect your skin. The sun is one of the leading factors in contributing to wrinkles. The better protected your skin is, the better chance you have at avoiding wrinkles.

While you may be able to start preventing more wrinkles now, you may still have wrinkles you'd like to disappear. There are several cosmetic and skin care products that contain substances engineered to soften and remove wrinkles. Go to your local drugstore and check out the products available. If you're unsure of what will work best for you and your skin, feel free to get a dermatologist's advice. You can also opt for more medically based treatments: Invest in vitamin supplements like a vitamin A acid which contains anti-wrinkle substances like tretinoin, Retin-A, and Renova. These kinds of treatments need to be used regularly to be effective. Try using alpha-hydroxy acids, antioxidants, and ordinary moisturizers. These are all excellent ways to medically approach wrinkle removal.

So, while you may value your life's experience, you don't want it to show on your face. Take preventative and offensive measures to tackle those wrinkles and better preserve your youth!
