How to prevent wrinkles in the fall
- Posted on: Sep 25 2017
Ah, the season of fall. A beautiful time when the leaves start to change colors, we prepare to wrap up in cozy sweaters, anticipate Halloween…and feel the effects of cooler, drier air on our skin across most parts of the country. That's right: Fall is amazing for a myriad of reasons, but your skin isn't always psyched when the air starts to chill. However, this is an opportune time to attend to your skin care routine, in particular, trying to prevent or halt wrinkles. Here are a few ways to help stop the spread of fine lines across your face in the fall:
Stop wrinkles in their tracks
In 2016, there were over 7 million botox procedures performed on women, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Botox is minimally invasive, and it essentially freezes facial muscles by blocking nerve signals. This means that wrinkles can appear less evident or may disappear altogether.
Load up on the cream
Whether you opt for eye cream or a full face cream, keeping skin moisturized is one way to help prevent wrinkles, said Marie Claire. Pay attention to the eye area: This tends to be the first part of the face where wrinkles show up.
Eat up – your vegetables, that is
You can prevent wrinkles from the inside out as well. Women's Day suggested that those concerned with fine lines should focus on consuming many kinds of fruits and vegetables in a variety of colors. Foods like blueberries, spinach and red peppers are excellent examples of antioxidant-rich edibles, and they may be able to help your skin better ward off environmental toxins, the source added.
Don't forget to drink
Water is a great way to keep skin looking smooth and hydrated, the source suggested. When you have consumed adequate amounts of water, it will show in your skin, and this may help smooth and further prevent more wrinkles from developing.
