Are you fed up with wrinkles? What can you do to reduce them?

Wrinkles are fine deep lines or furrows that form in your skin as you age. These are formed when your body undergoes chemical changes or hormonal changes due to different factors. The skin loses its elasticity and becomes loose. Wrinkles can be bothersome for people. In this article, some methods to protect your skin from wrinkling or reduce wrinkles’ appearance are described. You can use the following methods to treat wrinkles if you do not want to use hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).

Avoid direct contact of sunlight with skin.

You should avoid going out in broad daylight, especially during midday when the sun is at its peak. You should use protective clothing that may include long-sleeved shirts, hats, sunglasses, etc. while going out during the daytime.

Apply sunscreens and products with built-in sunscreen

Try to use good sunscreens (with your doctor’s recommendation) before going out in the sun. Usually, dermatologists recommend the use of a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or more. The use of sunscreen should be done generously, with a re-application every two hours so that it continues to prevent your skin from the direct ultraviolet radiations from the sun. If you’re a woman, you should use make-up that consists of a sun protection factor, also known as SPF. Use skin products that have a broad-spectrum sunscreen which means that it blocks UVA and UVB radiations.

Keep your skin hydrated.

Ensure that your skin is always hydrated, as dry skin causes the fat skin cells to wither very quickly. It ultimately results in deep fine lines and wrinkles. You can keep your skin hydrated by keeping it moisturized. The moisturization helps to entrap water in the skin that reduces the appearance of creases. This process may take up to a few weeks to show better results.

Avoid smoking

If you want healthy skin, please do not smoke. It helps even your skin tone and improves the overall skin texture, hence preventing the skin from wrinkling.

Always eat healthily

Eating foods that are rich in nutrients helps to keep your skin fresh and glowy. Research has shown that multiple vitamins in certain fruits protect our skin. Make vegetables and fruits a part of your eating routine.

Other options

If none of these techniques works on you to give better results, you always have an option to use Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) or Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Both these methods have very little or almost no side effects. They are available at the harbor compounding pharmacy. Please contact their website for more details.

When should you see a doctor?

You can see a doctor if you’re conscious about how your skin looks. Your doctor or dermatologist will examine your skin so that he or she can make a personalized prescription for you. The doctor is most likely to recommend some treatments, medications, and even lifestyle changes to reduce your wrinkles.
