Tips on Wrinkle Prevention

Wrinkles, a time old worry for women and more recently men. Now with hindsight we can look at prevention rather than a cure for wrinkles. You may also be interested to know that preventing wrinkles also saves you lots of money! Yes, health advice that will make you wealthier....

I have given you 6 tips to preventing or putting a halt to existing wrinkles you may already have.

Quit Smoking

If you are a smoker, really try and stop right now. Premature skin aging is the result from smoking. Some call it photo-aging. Again the money you will save and all the other benefits behind giving up are more than an added bonus.

Sunlight Nice but Bad
Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight. Sunlight is a major cause of damage to your skin and wrinkles will develop. If you have to be out in the sun, apply sun screens that protects against Ultra Violet A & B rays. UVA is the main culprit behind wrinkle development because of its ability to penetrate into our skin surface.

Drinking Alcohol
Drinking alcohol causes lots of problems and is a major contribution to dehydration. Not good for health or condition of your skin. So, kick your drinking habit or severely cut down to put wrinkles taking hold. Think of the money you will save, that helps.

Water Intake
Such a simple thing and its FREE. Don't bother with bottled spring water that costs and arm and a leg, simple tap water is just as good and in many cases tasted better. Water plays a key role in maintaining healthy skin complexion. 2 litres a day is a good intake but not all at once, several times throughout the day. More if you are in a warmer climate.

Balanced Diet
Eat more vegetables and fruits with antioxidant properties like spinach, brussel sprouts, broccoli, papaya, guava, mangoes, pineapple and honey melon. Many of these can be grown yourself saving you money as well. Antioxidants stops skin getting that aged look. Vegetable oils such as olive oil, soybean, nuts and nut butters, whole grains are also rich in antioxidants. Meats that has bounty full omega-3 fatty acids such as tuna and cod are best when broiled or baked, i.e not fried in oil. It is 100% proven that people who eat such foods have way less wrinkles than their counterparts who don't.

Vitamin Supplements
Just don't bother! As well as saving you money on these products you should have enough vitamins in the food you eat if you follow the previous tip! Don't get conned into thinking.
