If You're Fighting Wrinkles, There is Hope

Jan 11, 2008
Many women, and yes even men, find themselves fighting wrinkles every day. No one really wants to get old or even look as if they're getting old. And of course the face is one area that shows the signs of aging more so than virtually any other part of the body. While gray hair can be dyed and brittle bones hidden behind clothes, the face is something we show to the world every minute of every day. But if you're someone that is fighting wrinkles, take heart because there is hope!

Medical science is always applying itself to new solutions and new products every day, and not just for real medical issues either. Dermatologists study, not just acne and rashes and scars, but issues that have to do with aging. They are always coming up with new and improved products for those that are fighting wrinkles.

And what doctors and biologists are finding out to be true is that the natural ingredients are the best. In the past, harsh chemicals and additives were marketed as so-called wrinkle creams, but many of them did nothing but irritate the skin and cause breakouts and rashes. In today's battle of fighting wrinkles, creams and other products are more likely to have ingredients that sound like your grocery list than anything else!

For instance, many swear by green tea extracts in their quest for fighting wrinkles. Green tea is said to be a natural stimulant for skin, causing it to rejuvenate and revitalize itself. It can also act as an anti-inflammatory, meaning that if you also experience puffiness such as under the eyes, this can help calm and soothe such areas.

Retinol is another common weapon in fighting wrinkles, and retinol is really just a fancy name for a Vitamin A complex. Most skin creams also contain mixtures of Vitamin C and E, both believed to be healthy for the skin. Vitamin C is a natural anti-oxidant, meaning that it helps the body to fight off elements that harm healthy cells. Vitamin E is a natural moisturizer, and many use pure Vitamin E oil as a way of fighting wrinkles on their hands.

Of course, there are other ways of fighting wrinkles, from chemical peels to Botox injections. Face lifts are also becoming more and more common, as doctors are finding less invasive and harsh ways of doing this. Partial face lifts are helpful in fighting wrinkles around the neck area, as this just firms the skin on the lower part of the face and makes the chin and neck area more smooth.

And taking good care of your skin is of course the most important step in fighting wrinkles. Use sunscreen every day, exercise regularly to keep your blood circulating, and stop smoking if you do. All of these basic but necessary steps can go a long way toward making your skin appear younger, firmer, more radiant, and in fighting wrinkles for a liftetime.

Always consult your doctor before using this information.
