Aging is a natural process, and eventually, everybody has wrinkles and lines that become more prominent over time.
The following steps may help slow the process down:
Avoiding excessive sun exposure reduces skin damage because the sun causes the skin to age faster. Hats, protective clothing, and sunscreens can protect the skin from wrinkles by reducing sunlight damage.
Zero exposure to sunlight is not recommended, however, because it is a vital source of vitamin D, and vitamin D is essential for bone strength and other aspects of health. Some sunscreens can protect the skin while allowing vitamin D to be synthesized.
Moisturizers do not prevent wrinkles, but they may help temporarily make tiny lines and creases less evident. Quitting smoking can prevent the accelerated aging of the skin. Even a long-term heavy smoker can slow down the process by giving up.
Avoid alcohol because it dehydrates the body and the skin. Sleeping at least 7 hours a night, eating healthily and exercising regularly help to maintain overall health, and this may include skin quality, although this has not been extensively proven by research.
7 Ways to Reduce Wrinkles Step By Step
1. QUIT SMOKING
It’s never easy, but nicotine patches and inhalers are a great place to start if you’re having trouble.
2. ADD MORE ANTIOXIDANTS TO YOUR DIET
Antioxidants protect your skin from free radicals. Foods with the highest antioxidant content include:
- Red kidney beans
- Granny Smith apples
- Black plums
- Black beans
- Oily fish with high omega 3 fatty acid content
3. STAY HYDRATED
Try to drink two liters of water per day – especially after exercising. If you don’t enjoy drinking water, spruce it up with a fresh lemon or boost your skin’s hydration levels by drinking natural coconut water.
4. USE HIGH-QUALITY ANTI-WRINKLE CREAMS

7. REDUCE STRESS
Try to minimize your workload or cut down on anything that stresses you out and might be causing your wrinkles. Yoga and meditation can also help.
