Most celebrities and social idols in today’s society appear wrinkle- and cellulite-free, which is not an accurate depiction of the every day people who admire them. Wrinkles come hand-in-hand with aging, which many women actually embrace; however, many men and women do not feel on the inside the way wrinkles make them look on the outside. They feel trapped in an older-looking physiognomy than their younger inner spirit, and want the world to see them the way they see themselves. In order to reduce wrinkles, many women undergo surgical procedures, invest in well-marketed facial creams, and seek to minimize fine lines through lifestyle changes. As a result, many do regain a more youthful appearance, with the help of cosmetic treatments toggled in.
Making simple, routine lifestyle changes can help reduce the possibility of developing additional wrinkles. Avoiding sun exposure may have a big impact on preventing wrinkles. Similarly, using sunscreen on a daily basis can prevent wrinkles and protect you from skin cancer. A summer tan may look great, but a hole dug into your body to surgically remove a skin cancer most certainly does not. Dietary changes can also help reduce wrinkles. Eating more fish, which is rich in Omega-3s, can play a vital role in wrinkle prevention. In addition, eating more soy is said to help reverse aging and can actually aid with skin healing. Similarly, vitamins and nutrients that are found in fruits and vegetables can eliminate free radicals and repair sun damage, making skin look younger. By following a balanced diet, you can reap the benefits of various foods that reduce wrinkles.
We love the book Cooking Your Way to Gorgeous (HCI, 2013) a compendium of delicious (non diet!) recipes that incorporate skin-saving and anti-aging ingredients that most of us already have in our pantries. This book uses many antioxidant-rich foods as cellular medicine. Cellular medicine is the simple principle that health is determined at the cellular level of the human body. In short, if your cells are healthy, you are healthy. Vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients promote healthy cells, and therefore the health of your entire body.
Topical Wrinkle Reduction Treatment
If dietary changes and lifestyle modifications simply aren’t cutting it, MD Face & Body Medspa services can help accelerate your goals of looking and feeling better. For wrinkle reduction, topical treatments are some of the quickest most convenient options people prefer to try first. To begin with, alpha-hydroxy acids (or AHAs) are crucial for removing dead skin cells and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Similarly, retinoids provide an efficient way to reverse sun damage and reduce the effects of aging. Vitamin C, pentapeptides, and idebenone are also beneficial topicals that promote wrinkle reduction and enhance skin texture and appearance. Smooth, radiant skin portrays youth, which is the goal of all of these topical treatments. Ask us about our skincare products featuring these and other marvelous ingredients.
