"Get yourself Wrinkle Free"

 A thing we always dread on our Skin. One single spot on your face can bother you a lot, especially when you have to go to a party or there is a get together. Wrinkle, is a fold or crease in the skin, you may look old or dull, your skin may look unhealthy and you may also lose your glow, shine.

What factors promote wrinkles?

Factors that promote wrinkling include the following:

·         Aging
·         Smoking
·         Degree of skin pigmentation (more is better)
·         Sun exposure
·         Hair (some styles provide cover and protection against sun damage)
·         Dress (hats, long sleeves, etc.) can provide sun protection.
·         Occupational and recreational sun exposure (farming, sailing, golfing, using tanning booths)
·         Heredity (some families wrinkle more)
Wrinkles are not usually a concern unless they occur at an early age. Consult your health care provider if you think that your skin is becoming excessively wrinkled at an early age. A referral to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon is sometimes appropriate.
Find out what causes wrinkles and explore your treatment options:
Aging skin starts to lose its ability to hold on to moisture, makes less oil, and is slower to heal.
Facial Muscle Contractions
Lines between your eyebrows and lines jutting from the corner of your eyes ( crow feet wrinkles ) care thought to result from facial muscle contractions. Smiling, frowning, squinting and other habitual facial expressions make these wrinkles more prominent. 
Sun Damage
Getting too much sun damages your skin. That leads to wrinkles. To help prevent them, make it a habit to wear sunscreen every day, even in the winter and when it's cloudy.
Smoking curbs your skin's production of collagen, which is a key part of the skin's structure. The downturn in collagen paves the way for wrinkles.

Food that fights wrinkles
Five anti-wrinkle foods that will help promote the look and feel of your skin are:
·         Blueberries
·         Omega-3 eggs
·         Tomatoes
·         Sunflower seeds
·         Fish oils

In addition to the foods mentioned above, to improve the texture of your skin and reduce fine lines, make sure your system is properly hydrated. Minimize dehydrators such as alcohol and coffee and substitute a minimum of 6 to 8 glasses of mineral water or herbal tea daily.
