While wrinkle treatments are as old as time – and include everything from creams to invasive face peels and surgeries, the best treatment to keep skin youthful is by developing good skin habits. Daily habits have a lot to do with the development of wrinkles. They’re sneaky and subtle, and much of the time people fail to realize what they’re doing to their skin until it’s already too late.
Using the methods below along with a non-invasive treatment can go long way to prevent wrinkles and keep skin youthful for years to come.
1. NECK AND HANDS
While most women are in the habit of beautifying their faces on a daily basis, adding their neck and hands to the cleansing/moisturizing process will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
2. EAT FRESH
Stay away from vegetable oils, margarine, red meats, white bread or sugary, processed foods not only affects weight, it contributes to aging skin. Instead eat fresh produce and organic if possible.
Women who continually scrub their faces are drying out their skin cells, leaving them with dull complexions that highlight damaged areas. The worst time of day for face-washing is in the morning; it strips away all the work a body did to restore the skin during the night. When the face and hands are washed, never skip the moisturizer.
4. LIMIT DRINKING
All alcohol dehydrates the skin, most evident the morning after. Over time, the skin loses elasticity and forms wrinkles due to a lack of hydration. Steady alcohol drinking also severely reduces vitamin A levels, important in the production of collagen.
5. SUNSCREEN IS MANDATORYThere’s no avoiding the sun, but applying a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater every day can help avoid sun damage.
6. GET ENOUGH REST
It’s called beauty sleep for a reason, because the skin renews itself during the night. The less sleep we get, the less time your skin will have to rejuvenate.

7. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
As women age, their skin naturally gets thinner and drier, making it more necessary than ever to drink enough water to keep it hydrated. Try an average of six to eight glasses of water daily
8. AVOID EXCESSIVE GUM CHEWING AND SMOKING
Fresh breath worries or not, constantly chewing gum forces the mouth to continually form different shapes, forcing down the corners of the mouth and contributing to the development of wrinkles. The same is true for smokers! Smoking depletes the skin, and creates unappealing wrinkles on the face.
