Most Effective Remedies to Get Rid of Wrinkles

Creases don’t look good on anything- neither on your clothes nor on your face! Yes I am talking about those unsightly wrinkles that give you nightmares. They are on your face, neck, hands or any other place due to your skin’s lost elasticity and moisture. And why have you lost these prominent things? There may be various reasons like aging, pollution, sun exposure, smoking, certain drugs, drastic weight loss or deficiency of certain nutrients or other components in your body. You may either single out the cause for your wrinkles (which is a tough task, I must say!) or change some of your dietary and lifestyle habits to prevent further wrinkles as well as getting rid of those which are already present there on your skin. Various home remedies do come to your assistance to reverse the process of wrinkling.
Most Effective Home Remedies for Wrinkles

If you have recently noticed those fines lines on your face or have been struggling to get rid of them since long back, there are certain home remedies that can remove wrinkles more effectively than others. Here I will give you such natural remedies for wrinkles that will sure make you get rid of your ugly fine lines. The first of them is your food habits!
Diet Remedies for Wrinkles

Wrinkles are visible on your ‘outer’ body but most of the times their cause lies ‘within’ your body. You must pamper your skin with various essential foods that keep your skin working to make collagen- the thing which grants elasticity to your skin. So, here are your food remedies for wrinkle less skin.
1. Drink Plenty of Water

Water is not food but I am including it in the category of diet because this is perhaps the most effective as well as most simple remedy for wrinkles. Water is one of the basic necessities of our body that we tend to ignore. Drinking water will not only avoid and treat wrinkles but will keep you healthy in general. Plenty of water keeps your skin hydrated. Remember, one of the reasons for wrinkle formation is loss of moisture! So, drink water, plenty of it. Now what’s plenty is subjective. On normal days when you do not work heavily, 6 to 8 glasses of water is sufficient but when you work hard, play a lot, go to gym, or do any other work that drains out water from your body, drink even more water. Check to keep your water filtered and safe. Chemicals and dissolved ingredients in hard water may even be more dangerous for your skin. If you are having healthy beverages during the day like fruit and vegetable juices (not colas and sodas), they can also be counted as intake of water.
2. Have Foods with Wrinkle Fighting Elements

And what are such elements of food? I’ll tell you. They are antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, trace minerals like selenium and copper, high-quality protein, plant compounds such as isoflavones, retinol- one of the forms of vitamin A, iron, vitamin E and C, mono-unsaturated fat etc. Here’s the list of foods from which you may get all these substances.

3. Sleep Sufficient and Sleep Right

Why? You just need to know this- When you sleep, your body produces human growth hormone (HGH) which controls the growth of all body tissues including skin. And if you don’t sleep enough, your body releases cortisol which is a stress hormone responsible for slowing down the growth and even damaging tissues. You sure need new skin cells to fight off and prevent wrinkles and you also need to prevent any damage to your body tissues so that you do not get further wrinkles. So, just don’t neglect your body’s need of sleeping.

While sleeping enough is important, sleeping in the right posture too is important otherwise you may get wrinkles that are known as sleep lines. These lines are formed on the surface of your skin and do not go away even when you get up. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) says that sleeping on your side may form wrinkles on cheeks and chin. Don’t sleep face down too otherwise you’ll get a furrowed brow. The best position is to sleep on your back.
4. Don’t Stress

Easier said than done! But then, getting rid of wrinkles too is not an easy task. You need to get rid of your stress because it makes your skin thin and weak which cannot fight with the elements that produce wrinkles. Also when you frown or scowl, they only help to make your temporary facial lines permenanet. Do whatever will de-stress you. Here are some suggestions.

5. Don’t Smoke; Don’t Smoke Passively Too

Again a tough task for smokers. For non smokers too and for none of their mistakes. Smoke produces free radicals. Free radicals lead to body’s molecular instability which in turn weakens and kills body cells by damaging their membrane. As a result, collagen production in body is affected. Collagen, if you remember, is the element which gives elasticity to your skin. Lack of elasticity in skin means wrinkles. So, if you smoke, stop smoking. If you don’t smoke but are surrounded by people who smoke, try to convince them not to smoke at all. If you are unable to do so, ask them not to smoke near you. If that is also not possible, get up and go somewhere else till the time your friend or partner finishes smoking. Just avoid any environment where there is tobacco smoke.

6. Protect Skin from Harmful Sunrays

Exposure to the ultraviolet rays of sun can damage your skin’s collagen leading to wrinkles. The best thing would be to not go out when the sun shines at its best. However, that’s not always possible. So, the choice limits here to protecting yourself. Here are some ways to protect yourself and your skin from these harsh sun rays.

Use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 whenever going out in sun. Better if you can use a broad-spectrum sunscreen having an SPF of 25 to 30. It is effective in protecting you against UVA and UVB radiation from the sun. Enhanced sunscreens containing vitamin E or soy isoflavones can also shield and strengthen your skin barrier by assisting in reproducing collagen.
Take along accessories like hats, scarves, umbrella. When you are out for longer, you should re-apply your sunscreen and if that’s not possible, use anything that will block sun-rays from penetrating your skin.
Wear sunglasses to avoid eye wrinkles when going out in the sun. Eyes are sensitive and so is the skin around them. Strong sunrays make you squint which also leads to wrinkle formation around eyes. So prevent these fine lines, invest some money on quality sunglasses. Cheaper brands can damage your invaluable eyes!
