Simple tips for wrinkles treatment
20th January 2009
No one likes wrinkles but it is an inevitable part of the ageing process. As the time flies, our skin’s ability to protect itself from damage becomes less and it thins, becomes drier and grows less elastic. You will experience wrinkles when your skin loses elasticity, strength, fat and also moisture. This type of skin damage mainly involves breakdown of elastic fibre network within the cells of skin. As a result, the collagen protein in your skin, which is mainly responsible for youthful look, tends to reduce gradually. The skin can lose fat cells as your age increases and as a result, it fails to retain the moisture and leads to wrinkles on skin.
A long time exposure to sun can also cause Wrinkles. Despite many wrinkle treatments being available, the ageing process can not be stopped, though it can be slowed down. Wrinkles free skin care requires maintaining healthy diet and protecting your skin from harmful sunrays. The skin’s appearance can be maintained and improved over time using these simple tips.

You can improve your skin tone and texture by simply not smoking, and prevent future wrinkles by quitting. Quit smoking and you will notice that your skin will not have those wrinkles which are particularly associated with the smoking. Drink Plenty of Water Your body eliminates a lot of water each day. Keep your body hydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help flush out toxins. When you hydrate your body from the inside, your skin will receive the benefits as well. Drinking the recommend daily amounts of water helps your skin stay smooth and fresh. Skin that is moist does not lose its elasticity as fast as dry skin. Get a Facial Massage A facial massage will help to keep elasticity in the skin and keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay. A facial massage will stimulate blood flow and circulation in the facial area. Increased blood flow stimulates the skin and helps to keep it renewed and rejuvenated. Washing the face everyday will also help stop wrinkles, too.
