Effective Anti-Wrinkle Treatments That Defy Ageing

We’ll all inevitably get the odd wrinkle or two, but how do you remove them once they appear?

Of course, there is no one single magic wrinkle remover that gets rid of wrinkles just like that! However, there are a combination of things you can do to to remove those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.

We’ve asked our expert skin specialists what the best ways to stay young are, and they’ve shared a couple of their top tips to combat fine lines and wrinkles effectively.

  • Beauty Sleep - Snooze Your Way to Youthful Skin
    • Modern life can be highly disruptive to our lives and sleeping patterns. Family, work, daily pressures – let’s face it, we could all do with a bit more shut-eye.

      When we sleep, our skin’s blood flow increases and the organ rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure. This, in turn, reduces wrinkles and age spots, resulting in youthful skin.

      According to Healthline, a study conducted in 2017 found that two days of sleep restriction negatively affected participants’ perceived attractiveness, health, sleepiness, and trustworthiness.

  • Anti-Ageing Habits For Your Lips
    • Small changes to your daily habits like drinking through a straw, chewing gum and blowing bubbles, along with smoking (which causes ageing for a host of reasons, including decreasing oxygen flow to the skin), can make a massive difference in helping stop wrinkles from developing around the mouth.

      Another wrinkle-forming habit is squinting, which can cause dreaded crows feet (fine lines and wrinkles that form around the outer corners of the eyes). So when you’re out and about, remember to wear your sunglasses!

  • Moisturise - Hydration Magic for Fresh, Plump Skin
    • As we age, the production of collagen and elastin naturally decreases, and so our skin quality isn’t as good as it once was.

      The use of a good moisturiser can help your skin absorb water, prevent it from getting dry and therefore delay the process of getting wrinkles.

      Of course, moisturiser alone does not prevent wrinkles, but it sure does go a long way in making the skin look fresh and plump!

  • Retinoids - The Anti-Ageing Wonder for Your Face
    • Derived from vitamin A, retinoids are one of the most studied anti-ageing ingredients. Retinol is the only ingredient in skincare that both increases collagen production and stops collagen breakdown.

      Retinoids increase cell turnover, which in turn encourages skin regeneration, promoting new blood vessels. This is especially useful to those looking to get rid of hyperpigmentation and acne marks.

      It should be noted that using retinoids can cause skin dryness and irritation and so it is recommended to slowly incorporate it into your skincare routine. Start by using it every other day so that your skin can build tolerance towards it. Make sure to wear sunscreen during the day as retinoids can increase the skin’s sensitivity to light due to the high cell turnover.

      It takes at least three to six months of regular use to see any change so make sure to be consistent, and positive results will follow!

  • Microneedling - The Perfect Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
    • Microneedling is an anti-wrinkle treatment in which you use small needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. These punctures, in turn, trigger a healing response with our skin and generate fresh, younger-looking skin.

      Beauty professionals were once the only ones who could do micro-needling, but it is now possible to do this at home. You are essentially damaging your skin to create newer, younger, smoother skin. If you’re unsure or worried about doing a spot of micro-needling yourself, you may want to leave this one to the professionals.

  • Exfoliation - Shedding the Old, Embracing the New
    • As you age, your skin cannot replenish itself as quickly; parts of it break down. Collagen production slows, and your skin’s elasticity breaks down. Sagging and collapsing skin structure leads to lines, wrinkles, and an uneven appearance. Additionally, in those more profound points in the creases, bacteria and dirt can build up, causing blemishes, inflammation, and breakouts. Exfoliation helps prevent wrinkles as it also sends a message to the middle layer of your skin to make new collagen. And rejuvenate your skin.

      When you exfoliate, you’re stripping away the outer layer or two of skin and leaving the fresher, younger, smoother skin beneath.

  • Coconut Oil - Love Your Skin with Nature's Emollient
    • Coconut oil is a natural emollient and great for wrinkles. When you apply it to your skin, it fills in the gaps in your epidermis and makes your skin feel smooth. Showing your skin some love with coconut oil doesn’t just make it smoother it also helps skin retain moisture, which makes your face appear fuller.

  • Lemon Balm Leaf Tea - A Sip of Elasticity and Tissue Repair!
    • One of the newer holistic strategies to emerge for wrinkle-fighting is lemon balm leaf tea. A study that compared a small sample of people drinking lemon balm leaf tea to another group drinking a placebo of barley leaf tea led researchers to conclude that lemon balm leaf extract makes skin more elastic and corrects tissue damage.

  • Bye-Bye Sugar - Wrinkles Won't Miss You!
    • Every time you eat sugar, you gain a wrinkle. A recent study examined people’s meat and fish intake, 5-a-day fruit & vegetables, fresh foods, packaged foods, alcohol, caffeine, sugar, and water to see which makes the most significant impact on visible ageing. Subjects visually five years younger than their actual age had the lowest intake of sweet, sugary treats. A theory that is gaining in popularity is that sugar contributes negatively to the skin and overall ageing process. It is believed that sugar (or glucose) creates ‘Advanced Glycation End (AGE)’ products in every cell and molecule in the body, creating inflammation.

  • Caffeine Vibes - Embrace Moderation and Age Gracefully!
    • The study also found that younger-looking people had the lowest intake of caffeine, but some good news: frequency of alcohol seemed not to affect visible ageing. However, the volume of alcohol did, so if you want to keep wrinkles at bay, it’s ok to have that post-work glass of wine but drink only in moderation.

  • Fishy Business - Omega-3 Goodness for Youthful Skin
    • The visually youngest participants were more likely to consume the recommended one portion of oily fish a week.

      This is because Omega-3 is found in abundance in oily fish, such as herring, mackerel, sardines, fresh tuna and salmon, and has a plethora of skin and other health benefits.

      If you are not a regular fish eater, perhaps because you don’t like oily fish, there are plenty of omega-3 rich supplements that provide skin-loving, anti-ageing benefits on the market.
