Three Secret Ways to Reduce Wrinkles and Lines
May 19, 2020
You’ve probably heard it all by now; the importance of skincare for men, different anti-aging techniques, the types of creams and skincare routine you should stick to and so much more. But what about all those tips and tricks on how to reduce wrinkles that no one tells you about? The little things that can boost your skincare routine and help you snatch some water from that fountain of youth?
Of course, there’s nothing like making sure to follow the basics; rinsing your face at least twice a day with lukewarm water, moisturizing with a proper cream and softening and smoothing your skin before and after a shave. But if you’re looking for three pro tips – we’ve got just the thing for you. And hey, they’re so easy to do – you won’t even have to think twice!
Sleep Tight for Tighter Skin
They don’t call it a beauty sleep for no reason. But as it turns out, there’s a right way to sleep – one that could help you significantly reduce the wrinkles brought on by “sleep lines.” But aside from those, there are a few crucial factors that come into play. For instance, the position you sleep in has a substantial effect on your skin. Dermatologists recommend sleeping on your back, as it cannot only reduce wrinkles and lines but also prevent inflammation and increase natural blood circulation and cell rejuvenation.
But that is not all. Did you know that the pillow you sleep on is also quite crucial for your sleep and skincare habits? If you’re struggling to apply the previous tip and still can’t sleep on your back, you should carefully pick your pillowcase as your facial skin is probably rubbing up against it. The best kind of fabrics for your skin are soft ones such as silk. Furthemore, consider changing your pillowcases more often as they tend to trap dead skin cells and dirt. Wrinkles or not; no one wants their skin to constantly touch that, plus it’s unhealthy for your skin and its aging process.
Last but no least, make sure you’re getting enough sleep. Researches suggest that an insufficient number of sleeping hours can hinder the skin’s natural processes as well as worsen existing skin conditions. Plus, we don’t have to tell you that those black circles both look bad and are pretty unhealthy for your skin. Remember, don’t let anyone stop you from catching those soft Zzzs.
Reduce Wrinkles – Devotion in Motion
In case you were wondering, we’re talking about facial massages, of course. Though you could go to a specialized masseuse, you can just as easily give yourself a facial massage at home. All you need to do is use the tip of your fingers, apply minimum pressure and stroke in circular movement the areas which are prone to puffiness or wrinkling. Yes, you might be skeptical at first, but facial massages have many benefits. They have been proven to increase blood circulation and allow oxygen to flow faster to your facial skin. Massaging your face can also assist in relieving tension, and thus relaxing those muscles and preventing further wrinkling.
Even though some people believe that the face should be massaged upwards to treat sagging and lines, researches have shown that the direction in which you rub your face has nothing to do with it. The goal of a facial massage is not stretching and physically tightening existing wrinkles, it is increasing collagen production, stimulating circulation and helping your skin during its natural rejuvenation process. If you make sure to massage your face once a day, just for a couple of minutes right before you go to bed, after some time you’ll notice your skin is toned and your facial muscles relieved.
Face Mask to the Rescue!
While this is not a daily tip per se, it’s a great way to give your skin that anti-wrinkling boost it needs. But the real question is whether face masks do really work, and obviously, what can they do for you? The first answer is a definite YES! Dermatologists claim that face masks do have many great benefits. For example, face masks hydrate and nourish your skin. Although dry skin does not cause wrinkles, it might be one of the reasons those fine lines you have are so prominent. By hydrating your skin with a facial mask you can smoothen those wrinkles out. Also, a facial mask draws out impurities and removes dead skin cells – so it’s pretty much a win-win situation.
The best type of facial mask for firming up that skin is one based on Bentonite clay. This type of mask offers a deep cleanse and helps fight fine lines and other skin blemishes. Face masks are often applied once a week, on dry and clean skin. After a few minutes in which they work their magic and allow your skin to soak up all the nutrients, you simply wash the face cream off with warm water. Once you’re done, make sure to dry your face with a soft and clean towel.
While applying a face mask is extremely beneficial, it does not replace your daily face cream. A steady routine is always the best way to help your skin look younger and fresher. That being said, all the tips here are super easy to follow and their effectiveness has been proven. And if you’re still not convinced, just give them a go, you’ll thank us later!
Your skin is probably the best indicator you have to whether or not you’re leading a healthy lifestyle, or at least one
