Six of the Best Ways to Get Rid of Wrinkles

Posted in Beauti-Med Tips


Wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging, and unfortunately without professional cosmetic intervention, there’s no real way of preventing fine lines and creases as the years go on.

Eliminating Wrinkles

That being said, there are certainly a number of ways to slow down the development of wrinkles. Here are just a few of the ways you can buy yourself a couple more years of youthful smooth skin:

1. Make Sure You’re Getting Enough Sleep

Most physicians recommend that the average adult gets 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Any less than this can lead to a number of negative side effects, including dark circles and sallow skin. As well, the body produces growth hormones during sleeping hours which help to repair skin and increase elasticity; two factors which greatly reduce the development of wrinkles!

2. Sleep On Your Back

All sleep is not equal when it comes to preventing wrinkles! In fact, sleeping on your side or front can actual promote wrinkles on the cheeks and furrows in the brow. The best way to sleep if you want to minimize wrinkles is on your back!

3. Don’t Smoke or Drink

You might have noticed that it’s fairly easy to spot adults who have smoked or drank a lot for the majority of their life. This is because both of these bad habits enhance skin aging by releasing enzymes that break down the skin’s naturally stored of collagen.

4. Stay Out of the Sun

The sun is one of the biggest offenders when it comes to speeding up skin aging. Sure, that golden brown tan might make you feel youthful and vibrant in your early 20s, but will it be worth it when you’re wrinkled by the time you’re 35? Minimize your time in the sun as much as possible, look for shade when you’re outdoors, and layer on sunscreen as much as possible to keep your skin smooth and wrinkle free.

5. Exfoliate

If exfoliating isn’t already a part of your skin routine, you should start incorporating it as much as possible! Exfoliating clears away dead skin leaving soft, supple creaseless skin behind.

6. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Moisturizing is key to keeping your skin supple and youthful. If possible, use natural moisturizers like shea or coconut oils. The massaging movement used to apply the moisturizer is also great for your skin and can result in a firmer, younger looking face.

Even before you start seeing wrinkles form on your skin, preventative measures like Chemical Peels and Botox injections can help stop lines before they start. Contact our staff at Beauti-Med today to learn more about how you can stay looking young for years to come!
