Wrinkles - Laugh Lines Are No Laughing Matter

May 6, 2008
Those small wrinkles, also called laugh lines and crows feet, appear on your face as you age. We all want that smooth, sexy skin and do all that we can to prevent these lines from appearing. This is no easy task unless you never go out in the sun, avoid all areas of stress and are not exposed to any pollution and, of course, you must never laugh. While this is unrealistic, there are some easier precautions that you can take to minimize the effects.

The face is not the only place that wrinkles appear, but since this is the main part of yourself that other people see, this is the main area of concentration. Two ideas that anyone can do easily are to wear sunscreen in the summer and avoid rapid weight gain and loss. These two simple ideas can greatly improve the quality of your skin.

As we get older, skin does not remain as elastic as when we were young. The entire structure under our skin begins to deteriorate. After being stretched out after laughing or frowning, it doesn't bounce back like it used to. That doesn't mean that there is nothing that can be done about wrinkles.

Again it is plain clear that people who spend several hours under the sun without adequate skin protection, and those who smoke and thus neglect their health have to suffer from early signs of aging like abundant wrinkles on their faces. Same is true for people who didn't observe healthy dieting habits, experienced frequent weight gain and weight loss, and didn't care for their skin health.

Keeping the skin nourished and taken care of is a basic necessity. A good diet with all the proper nutritional areas addressed is one of the best ways to keep wrinkles at bay. Without the right amount of vitamin C, linoleic acid and omega fatty acids, your skin will age faster than normal and you will see a lot of wrinkles. A lot of fats and carbohydrates should also be avoided if you want to preserve the appearance of your skin.

Sweat, oils, and pollution can clog pores and stress the skin. Using the wrong cleanser could do more harm than good as some soap can dry out the skin causing it to feel rough and others contain harsh ingredients that can cause irreparable damage. Just because a product is endorsed by a celebrity, promises the fountain of youth, or has an attractive name does not guarantee that it will prevent or remove wrinkles.

Make sure to look at all the ingredients in your facial cleanser. Of course, if you are allergic to anything, do not use that product. All those unpronounceable ingredients in your cleanser are confusing. Do some checking out online as to what these ingredients actually are and how they will affect your skin. You do not want to risk getting cancer from these ingredients in exchange for helping get rid of wrinkles. More natural and organic products are becoming popular and may be gentler to your sensitive facial skin.

Above all, being sensible remains the best method to ensure a healthy skin and keep it free from wrinkles. It is true that we may not have any way to deal with our bad genes or inherent susceptibility to sun exposure, yet there are some easier steps like proper and full understanding of product ingredients before using them or simpler ways like wearing a hat while roaming on the beaches, that could help us greatly in maintaining a healthy and youthful skin appearance.
