Prevention

Here are listed some of the effective ways to prevent formation of wrinkles:

1. Protection from Sun:

If you wish to keep wrinkles at bay, try to go out into the hot afternoon sun as little as possible. If you have to go out cover your hands and face or use an umbrella.. This is the best way to minimize the damage caused by the harmful rays of the sun. One can apply a good quality sunscreen cream or lotion with suitable SPF on all the exposed parts of your body, about 30 minutes before going out.

2. Avoid Smoking:

Stay away from smoking to enhance and improve your skin texture and tone. Quit smoking and be protected against wrinkle formation.

3. Have Healthy Food:

It is believed that vitamin A, C, B3 (niacin), and E are good for your skin health. Have a healthy and balanced diet full of vitamins and minerals and safeguard your skin against wrinkles.

4. Drink Plenty of Water:

Drink at least 10-12 glasses of water every day. Water is important for your skin because it not only removes injurious toxins from the body but at the same time it also hydrates and nourishes your skin cells.
