How are wrinkles formed and what you can do to slow them down

Wrinkles, those elusive reminders that appear uninvited on our face, are also quite inevitable. Whether you smile, cry, smoke, take certain medication, expose your skin to the sun (basically, if you’re human), you will have wrinkles.

 

Although there is a genetic aspect influencing your skin type, these folds or ridges on your skin are part of the natural process of aging. However, there are several ways in which you can – and should – treat and prevent them. Why? Because treating your skin has more to do with just appearances; it also has to do with health, especially when it comes to men’s skin care, which is a widely neglected topic.

 

Our skin, which is the largest organ in our bodies, has in fact two layers; the epidermis and the dermis. Wrinkles form on both skin levels and their depth and shape depends on the skin layer in which they were created. Finer lines are usually formed on the exterior layer, the epidermis, while the dermis layer is responsible for long-lasting creases caused by laughing or frowning.  

 

So, now that we’ve covered the source of wrinkles and a brief anatomical explanation, let’s cut to the chase: what can you do about it? 

 

What can we do?

Well, the most important thing you can do is lead a healthier lifestyle. As you may well know, this includes, but is not limited to; avoiding sun exposure, avoiding smoking and using sunscreen. Also, beauty sleeps are not exclusive to women; lack of sleep or interrupted sleep, significantly damage cell turnover processes that occur as the body slows down and rests. Moreover, you should reconsider your nutrition. Some foods are known as beneficial for your skin and hair, such as salmon, soy, and citrus. While oily and processed foods have shown to speed up aging.

Making healthier choices also means adapting a certain skin care regimen. For instance, rinsing your face with cold water has shown to tighten pores and assist in protecting your skin from the sun. But more importantly, is finding an anti-aging treatment that is suitable for your skin. You may not know this, but men and women have very different skin and therefore, skin care needs. Particle is designed to answer these specific needs, and be easily incorporated in your routine. 

 

In short, while these literal wrinkles in time, cannot be completely stopped, there’s a lot you can do to look younger and healthier. By actively treating your skin, you will not only appear rejuvenated, you will actually lead a healthier lifestyle and turn back time.
