Wrinkles are the first and typical sign of aging, and are certainly part of an inevitable process. However, it is possible to mitigate the effects of the years that go by taking some simple precautions. Let’s find out how to eliminate wrinkles, the causes and the most effective natural remedies to reduce facial wrinkles.
Let’s first distinguish, because there are wrinkles and wrinkles.
There are various types of wrinkles:
Expression wrinkles are the furrows left by the continuous traction of the mimic muscles. They are therefore more evident in the areas most affected by facial expressions and in the subjects who use them most – but please don’t stop smiling for this. Already from the age of thirty they are visible and become deeper until they become permanent.
Actinic wrinkles are a dense network of fine wrinkles, which form a texture on the face, giving an overall wrinkled, wrinkled, almost creased appearance due to the loss of skin tone. They are due to the damage caused to collagen and elastic fibers by continuous exposure to the sun (or to the rays of solar lamps).
Gravitational wrinkles, as the word says, are due to the inability of the tissue to oppose the force of gravity. They become more evident with the weakening of the support structures.
Then there are sleep wrinkles, determined by the position held during the night. Initially reversible, they tend to become chronic over time.
Facial wrinkles: the causes
Let’s say that more than causes we can talk about habits that worsen the normal course of the skin or that on the contrary allow you to age with a better appearance, who wouldn’t want it?
In order for the skin to age at its best, we must take care of it from a young age, with suitable treatments and creams. Using sunscreen-free creams or full of additives can be worse than not using anything at all.
Poor hydration does not help cell renewal, as well as a diet low in vitamins, such as A, C and E in particular, which perform a protective action, in favor of foods enriched with additives and residues from crops that promote damage, aging and then the death of cellular structures.
The Sun is a source of life for all living organisms, but exposing yourself to its rays without any knowledge, at any time, without protection means exposing yourself to serious health problems, especially related to skin diseases.
Finally, smoking is one of the most important causes of facial wrinkles. The skin is continuously attacked by cigarette smoke, and premature aging is inevitable. No cream will save you from this. In fact, smoke contains many toxic substances, the most active of which is carbon, which make good oxygenation of the skin problematic, and reduces the blood flow of the skin through a vasoconstriction process.
Facial wrinkles: symptoms
As we have seen, particularly deep wrinkles may appear, real furrows, or generally wrinkled and withered skin, not very elastic.
The result is however an unhealthy and aged looking face.
While aware that wrinkles are not always an evil to be chased away at all costs, and that you must learn to live the changes of your body in a conscious and positive way, we provide you with some advice to ensure that you are not the cause of your aging, but to go beyond the years in a condition that makes you feel at ease.
How to eliminate facial wrinkles: the most effective natural remedies
How to eliminate wrinkles naturally? The watchword is to hydrate and nourish. This is the basis of any anti wrinkle remedy. In fact, hydration and nutrition keep the skin elastic, promote cell turnover and improve its appearance.
In this case you have to put away the laziness though, and spend some time on the skin of your face.

After the mask always remember to use a suitable anti-wrinkle cream, based on natural plant extracts. Check that it contains hyaluronic acid, collagen, antioxidants and fatty bodies.
Phytotherapy recommends continuous rosemary-based treatments: use the infusion by steaming it on the face for a prolonged anti-wrinkle effect.
Face wrinkles: the recommended diet
Nutrition is an aspect to be treated a lot, there are substances to be preferred and substance to be avoided.
Two important nutrients are selenium and copper, famous for reducing wrinkles. Selenium prevents the formation of wrinkles on the skin and restores its elasticity; copper is an essential element for the formation of collagen and elastin, two important proteins in the skin tissue. Like all minerals, selenium and copper should be used in very small quantities. The best sources of selenium are tuna, salmon, Brazil nuts, eggs and whole grains. Copper can instead be found in foods such as beans, lentils, walnuts, seafood.
Soy products are also a solution to eliminate wrinkles. Soybeans contain high quality proteins and some plant compounds called isoflavones, some of which are recognized as antioxidants. There are many anti-wrinkle creams on the market that contain genistein, an extremely effective soybean molecule for keeping skin younger.
Green light to everything that contains vitamins A, C and E, and Omega 3 and 6. In addition, among the herbs, parsley, rosemary and thyme.
To hydrate the body, drink plenty of water a day, at least a liter and a half.
Useful tips against facial wrinkles
If you did not understand it is absolutely essential to quit smoking. Smoking is the cause of so many evils that there is no good reason to justify its use. Unfortunately the substances present in cigarettes make it difficult to abandon this addiction, however there are therapies – for example in naturopathy – that give excellent results.
Nobody forbids you to expose yourself to the sun if you like to have a beautiful complexion. However, be careful to always use a sunscreen with an adequate level of protection, without mistakenly thinking that this blocks your melanin and prevents it from working. Indeed, you will have a more natural and longer-lasting tan.
During the exposure period, do gentle peels: you will promote cell turnover and the tan will last even longer. Finally, always use an after sun cream after exposure to hydrate and soothe the skin.
As for the overuse of solar lamps, the problem is always the same: you prefer to be tanned even in winter and have a nice dark color, but cause irreparable damage to your skin that will soon present you the bill or be a little whitish but healthier? To you the choice. I’ve already done it for some time.
