Fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable aspect of the aging process; however, there are a number of methods that can reduce the onset of these changes in your appearance so you can maintain a youthful complexion for longer.

The first way you can prevent the formation of lines and wrinkles can be done while you are sleeping – by lying on your back. Sleeping on your side or on your stomach increases the likelihood of ‘sleep lines’ becoming etched into your skin; sleep on your back to prevent these.

Have your eyes tested; if you find yourself needing to squint in order to see things in either a close or distant range, then you might be a suitable candidate for glasses. Not only can a glasses prescription help you see with more clarity, it will prevent the formation of wrinkles from all the sub-conscious squinting you could be doing as a result of poor eyesight.

Eat fish! Fish is not only a ingredient in a healthy and delicious meal, but it can protect your skin from wrinkles. This is because salmon and other deep-water fish contain protein and fatty and acids that help nourish the skin from the inside out.

Soy and cocoa have also been found to contain properties that aid in countering the skin’s aging process.

The excessive use of face-wash and tap water can strip the skin of natural oils and barriers that help protect it from line formation. Failing to moisturise one’s face adequately can also be harmful to a skin’s appearance. Dehydration, smoking and sun damage are also all catalysts for wrinkles and fine lines.

Whilst these treatments and tips for the prevention of wrinkles can rejuvenate your skin and prevent it from aging to an extent, wrinkles and lines are ultimately inevitable. Treatments such as Botox and other fillers have a more manifest difference on your skin, and can restore it to its youthful glow of previous years.
