Skin: how to avoid wrinkles?
As you get older, it is completely normal to see small marks on your skin. These are wrinkles, they generally form on sensitive and fragile areas such as the face, neck and décolleté.
Reduced production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are the causes of wrinkles. Aging of cells is the primary cause of wrinkles; in fact, with age, the skin becomes more and more fragile and wrinkles.
The appearance of wrinkles is also associated with health, diet, care, the sun and even pollution. All of these factors promote sagging and loss of elasticity of the skin. The wrinkles that appear most often are those around the eyes, as well as “frown” lines on the forehead.
Here are some easy tips to apply in your daily life to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and preserve the beauty of your skin .
Take care and moisturize your skin
In order to delay the appearance of wrinkles as much as possible, it is necessary to guarantee optimal hydration of the skin. Every day, it is therefore important to apply a hydrating serum or moisturizing cream rich in essential ingredients for the beauty of the skin such as antioxidants (vitamins C and E, polyphenols, selenium, etc.). These help protect the skin from external aggressions, as well as firm it and restore density.
As a treatment guide, the application of vegetable oils is highly recommended to prevent and reduce wrinkles thanks to their powerful nourishing effect. The best oils for skin are argan oil, rosehip oil, evening primrose oil and borage oil. Their regenerating, antioxidant, anti-aging and softening properties are ideal for avoiding marked wrinkles.
Have a good diet
To be in shape and maintain healthy skin , having a healthy and balanced diet is essential. Indeed, certain nutrients contribute to the suppleness and hydration of the skin.
To do this, you must consume as much fruit and vegetables as you want per day, especially those that are rich in antioxidants such as raspberries, apricots, cherries, artichokes, beets and avocado.
Omega 3 sources are also to be favored such as salmon, olive oil, tuna or even spinach.
Finally, we must focus on proteins (poultry, meat, soy, tofu, etc.) because they ensure the synthesis of the different fibers that make up the skin, such as collagen (protein which slows down the effects of skin aging).
To maintain healthy skin, Délicure has launched hair gummies : vegan, natural, sugar-free and made in France. Their composition rich in blueberry, vitamins (B6, B8, B9, B9, B12 and E) and trace elements (zinc and selenium) is targeted for the beauty of the skin, hair and nails.
These products do not cause any side effects and are to be used as part of a healthy lifestyle.
In addition to a good diet, it is essential to hydrate yourself from the inside. Indeed, drinking enough water (between 1.5L and 2L of water per day) helps maintain a fresh and plump epidermis, and prevents the appearance of wrinkles on the skin.
Aside from drinking water, drinking green tea is also beneficial in preventing damage to skin cells, it is a powerful natural antioxidant.
At the same time, you must avoid consuming alcohol and tobacco because they alter skin microcirculation and lead to premature aging of the skin which becomes dry, dull and wrinkled.
Protect yourself from the sun
The sun is one of the skin's worst enemies. Some of its rays, UVA and UVB, are harmful to the skin because they cause lesions inside the cells which damage the collagen and elastin fibers. This is what we call the phenomenon of photoaging (i.e. premature skin aging).
To properly protect yourself from the sun, and thus prevent premature aging of the skin, you must choose good sun protection adapted to your skin type.
When exposed to the sun, whatever the sun protection products, they must be applied every two hours.
Another piece of advice, to avoid sunburn (burns and inflammation of the skin), it is advisable not to expose yourself during the hottest hours, that is to say between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Aside from the sun, pollution also causes damage to the skin. Pollution particles present in the environment promote oxidative stress and cause the appearance of signs of aging such as wrinkles, loss of radiance and firmness. It is therefore very important to take regular care of your skin.
Massage his face
In addition to taking care of and hydrating your skin, doing a facial massage is very effective in relaxing features and smoothing fine lines. It must be gentle and carried out delicately so as not to attack or damage the skin tissue.
There are three types of targeted massage:
- To combat the small wrinkles that appear at the outer corners of the eyes, also called "crow's feet", you must massage this area by making small circles with your fingers.
- In order to reduce horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, you must make a repeated movement from the center of the forehead towards the temples.
- Regarding wrinkles between the eyebrows, you must start massaging from the nostrils towards the jaw bone, or from the corner of the mouth towards the jaw bone.
Little extra: the massage can be performed while applying a moisturizing cream to boost its effectiveness.
Get quality sleep
Having good quality sleep allows the skin to better regenerate and self-repair in the face of the various attacks it may suffer. It is therefore very important to get enough sleep at night to preserve the radiance of your skin.
A poor night's sleep can lead to the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation differences and a loss of elasticity. In the long term, unrestorative sleep can cause premature aging of the skin.
To guarantee quality sleep, Délicure offers Sleep gummies , enriched with melatonin (sleep hormone), relaxing plants (passion flower, lime blossom and poppy) and vitamins (B5 and B6). They promote falling asleep more quickly, help limit waking up during the night, and thus contribute to better quality sleep.
