A smooth, wrinkle-free face: It’s the goal of almost everyone as we age. And getting there isn’t as difficult as you might initially expect. In fact, according to the skincare and beauty researchers at Kristals Cosmetics, it really boils down to three basic steps. So here’s what you need to know to start smoothing wrinkles out — or preventing them from appearing in the first place.
Smoothing Wrinkles in 3 Steps
#1 Get Started with Healthy Habits
While good skin products play a role in reducing wrinkles (and we’ll get to that in a moment), the reality is that your daily activities play a vital role in preventing or reducing wrinkles. A number of steps can help. Some of the top tips our experts recommend include wearing sunscreen each day; eating lot of fruits and vegetable for antioxidants; getting plenty of sleep, sex and exercise; drinking water; and, of course, avoiding smoking and alcohol. All of these steps can preserve a fresh face well into your years.
#2 Choose the Right Cream
There’s no perfect skin cream that works for everyone. But there are some “all-star” ingredients that everyone should be looking for to smooth wrinkles or keep them from appearing in the first place. According to researchers, you want to be looking for a cream with retinol, which is a vitamin A form that has worked very well in studies for reducing wrinkles. Other anti-aging ingredients include hydroquinone, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. Though acid sounds harsh, in this case the acid actually adds moisture to your skin.
#3 Talk to Your Dermatologist
Finally, it’s important not to leave your dermatologist out of the fight against wrinkles. From prescription creams to cutting edge medical procedures that involve sound waves, small injections of fillers or other simple procedures, your dermatologist has a number of tools at his or her disposal that can make wrinkles virtually disappear. It’s certainly worth a visit if wrinkles are becoming more of a concern as you age.
