Wrinkles can affect anyone of any age. If you're ready to get rid of wrinkles for good, follow these steps that all smart women take to help get rid of the dreaded signs of aging for good!
As we explain in this blog post, the Clarisonic device isn't just for removing dirt and grime at the end of the day. It can also be used as an effective method for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and for preventing future wrinkles from taking hold. By keeping your skin squeaky clean, you'll also make sure your skin cream is super effective.
As we get older, our bodies start to lose the ability to tell when we're thirsty. As a result, you may be more dehydrated that you think! Staying adequately hydrated is probably the biggest favour you can do for you skin. Although some people would have you believe that you can literally push out wrinkles with water, this isn't the case. The role hydration plays in your skin's health and appearance is much more complex, but rest assured that drinking your eight glasses a day will lead to supple and smoother skin that is less prone to dry patches or breakouts.
If you're ready to bid wrinkles farewell for good, we recommend investing in an at-home microdermabrasion device such as the PMD or Riiviva. You can read our thoughts on these devices here and here. Microdermabrasion removes the top layer of skin and reveals the baby-soft skin below it, and unlike the pricey salon versions, these at-home devices are a safe and easy to use alternative that will cost a fraction of the price.
Nothing beats the feeling of finding a skin cream that just works! Although the premium skincare aisle at boots will have you believe the crazier the cream ingredients, the better (like this snail facial that's popular in Japan!?) this simply isn't the case. More often than not, it's the classics that will deliver the best results. Think: Olay, Nivea and Ponds.
When your muscles are weak, what do you do? You hit the gym, of course! And this should be no different for your facial muscles. As we age, the muscles in our face lose some of their oomph, which can lead to wrinkles. If you want to ease your facial muscles back into shape, you'd best become good friends with our favourite microcurrent beauty devices – NuFACE, CACI Microlift and L(A)B. These devices work by passing painless microcurrents through the muscles in your face, causing them to contract and tighten. And hey presto, wrinkles are gone!
6. Superfoods for glowing skin
You don't have to switch to a gluten-free, organic, sugar-free, paleo and raw food diet to get rid of wrinkles. A few small changes to your diet can have a huge impact on your skin. Look for foods rich in antioxidants (green leafy vegetables, blueberries and kiwi), vitamin C (peppers, broccoli and strawberries) and plant polyphenols (green tea). These will help boost circulation, hydration, and promote healthy skin-renewal.
What would you say if we told you it's possible to get rid of wrinkles while you sleep? It's not just wishful thinking, as there are now pillowcases and eye masks that can help you smooth out your skin while you catch some Zzz's. The iluminage copper-infused pillowcase and eye mask is the perfect combination for anyone wishing to get rid of wrinkles at home or on-the-go.
