7 Natural Ways to Battle Wrinkles

Ways to Battle WrinklesWrinkles form when the skin loses elasticity; when it does not retain its suppleness and lines deepen that would smooth out with supple skin. Some wrinkling is a result of aging, and is inevitable, and the facts that the skin gets thinner and dryer both play a part. Other factors such as habitual facial expressions, muscle tone, nutrition, and proper skin care (or lack of), as well as pollution in the environment and heredity all play into how much the skin is affected by wrinkles, and whether or not they will reverse. Overexposure to the sun is thought to be one of the number one factors in whether or not your skin will be able to protect itself against wrinkles. Thankfully there are many ways to battle wrinkles before they start, and start treating existing wrinkles to smooth them away. If you want a few wrinkle fighters, try one or two of these suggestions:


1. Vitamin A

Vitamin A is critical in battling wrinkles because it is necessary for the construction of new skin tissue, and the healing of damaged skin tissue.


2. Aloe Vera

This skin healer and hydrator can be applied directly to stubborn areas like the corners of the eyes (“crow’s feet”) or the cheeks and lips before bed. Use the actual clear liquid gel from inside the ale vera leaf, or purchase a stabilized aloe vera gel with 98% - 99% aloe vera for maximum effectiveness.  


3. Vitamin E

Vitamin E protects against free radicals (that are caused by pollution in the air) which can contribute to aging and damage the skin.


4. Selenium

Selenium is an antioxidant that works in conjunction with vitamin E to eliminate free radicals.


5. Silica

If you take silica, you can ensure you skin is getting what it needs to retain maximum strength and elasticity because it stimulates collagen formation.


6. No Smoking!

For the best plan to fight wrinkles before they start, do not smoke. It dries out your skin, and the pursing of one’s lips to take a drag develops deep creases in your lips prematurely.


7. Exercise your Face

Good muscle tone is key to retaining suppleness and elasticity in the skin on your face. Sit in a chair and extend your jaw in an exaggerated chewing motion. Stretching the muscles under your chin is also a good exercise to battle wrinkles.
