Today we will talk with you about such an undesirable defect that spoils our beauty – wrinkles.

How we do not want to grow old, and at the first signs of aging we run to stores that offer us creams, lotions and serums of all kinds in huge quantities to remove or prevent wrinkles.

Wrinkles are not only caused by skin aging – there are many other factors that affect the skin of the face and body. Here we will tell you about them today.

Sun exposure and ultraviolet rays

The harmful effects of sunlight dehydrate the skin, making it prone to dryness, flaking and rapid aging.

If you’re out in the sun for a long time, you’re at risk for fine lines and wrinkles, so the best way to protect your skin is to use a high-protection, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day before going outside.


The most likely appearance of wrinkles, their depth and degree of manifestation lies in the genetic code. Looking at your older relatives and parents is one way to see what you will look like in the future and what first signs of aging you will see on your face, neck and décolleté.

Therefore, try to spend less time in the sun and use sunscreens containing zinc or titanium dioxide, and start using age-appropriate anti-aging skin care products. And it will prevent the appearance of the first signs of aging and wrinkles.

Healthy food

Adding berries, fruits and vegetables to your diet will saturate your body with beneficial substances and antioxidants that will help your skin fight toxins and environmental impacts more actively so that the skin retains its elasticity for longer and remains healthy and radiant .

On healthy skin, fine wrinkles and flabbiness are less noticeable. Healthy food contributes to the proper functioning of the body and heart, and the high content of vitamins and minerals in fresh fruits and vegetables will renew and improve the skin of the face and body.

Sleep position

Every year, the production of connective tissue and collagen decreases, and the skin of the face becomes covered with the first wrinkles and folds, because the supporting effect is lost.

Therefore, if you sleep every night on only one side of your face, the skin will crumple and rub against the pillows and will not recover and smooth back quickly, as it did in youth. The good news is that if you change your sleeping positions, you can reverse the appearance of these wrinkles. And for this, try to get used to sleeping on your back.


The risk of age wrinkles or creases around the eyes can actually come from poor vision. Many women compensate for visual problems by squinting, which causes the muscles of the forehead and between the eyebrows to wrinkle.

Over time, these wrinkles will only get worse and will get deeper if you don’t take action. To do this, solve vision problems and the sooner the better. This will help soften the appearance of fine lines because the muscles in your face won’t have to tighten up and will begin to relax, which will reduce the depth and harshness of the wrinkles that have appeared.


The first small wrinkles that appear on your face from facial expressions. They include fine lines from a smile, wrinkles around the eyes and crow’s feet, fine wrinkles on the forehead. Try to use less facial expressions: do not frown, smile less or raise your forehead in surprise and wrinkles will form less and stay in these places.

To fight mimic wrinkles, try treatments that will reduce and smooth them out, such as injections of Botox or hyaluronic acid. Because such wrinkles are firmly rooted in the skin over many years of repeated movements, you can use mesotherapy, biorevitalization procedures, and for deep wrinkles – laser resurfacing.


Everyone knows that it is enough to drink two liters of water daily so as not to dehydrate the body. But there is another reason why you should drink more liquids – they help your skin recover and not lose softness and elasticity.

Dry skin makes wrinkles look more pronounced, and the skin becomes flat and nondescript, making you look older. Water also removes any toxins that the body and body accumulates through your skin.


Collagen remains the main element for the skin, which restores its firmness and elasticity. When you force the cells to renew, new collagen is produced, which makes the skin healthier, revitalized and reduces wrinkles.

Cosmetics should contain components such as vitamins E, C, and D, all types of peptides, alpha hydroxy acids, retinol, which increase skin renewal at the cellular level and stimulate the body to produce collagen.
