Skin Condition: First Lines / Wrinkles
Are wrinkles or first lines a concern?
First lines are a major concern in both women and men lives and some do everything - from daily care to aesthetic treatments - to delay the signs of aging on their faces. This happens because wrinkles are a clear sign that the skin is no longer the same, that age is coming and, from then on, it is necessary to take care of the skin to soften the effects.
It is normal for this to happen in the 30s, when there is a natural reduction in the production of oil by the glands and a drop in the body's antioxidants. All of this predisposes to the appearance of the first wrinkles and expression lines, as the production of collagen and elastin also begins to decrease.
How do they appear as wrinkles on the face?
Wrinkles are the result of the natural aging process due to repetitive muscle action over the years combined with the reduction of collagen and elastin fibers, which are responsible for supporting the skin tissue. However, some habits we have throughout life can favor - and even anticipate - the appearance of signs of age.
Unprotected sun exposure, for example, is among the main causes of wrinkles, as UVA and UVB rays cause skin lesions from an epidermis to deeper layers of the dermis, modifying collagen, an elastin, a regeneration of the epidermis, appearance of blemishes, thus increasing the predisposition to the appearance of wrinkles.
In addition, factors such as source, smoking, diet and the way we sleep also contribute to the appearance of wrinkles.
You can, yes, delay the appearance of wrinkles!
A daily skin care routine, with the use of creams, serrums and sunscreens, helps a lot in maintaining the quality of the skin and preventing the appearance of wrinkles. However, 80% of aging is related to lifestyle.
It is important to have healthy habits, such as sleeping seven to eight hours a night, following a high-protein diet, drinking two liters of water a day, and exercising. Also, avoid smoking, drinking alcohol and excessive sugar, repeatedly performing facial expressions, and sleeping with your face turned toward the pillow.
Difference between wrinkles and expression lines:
Wrinkles are deep marks that arise naturally with the aging process due to factors such as loss of skin firmness and elasticity. Expression lines are, bol, small demarcations that appear when we move the musculature of the face.
Over time, this musculature marks the skin and causes these lines (bolamic and that appear only in expression) to become static, appearing even at rest.
When to start using anti-aging creams?
From the age of 20 onwards, anti-aging creams can already be used, as they exist in prevention. However, these should be suitable for this age group. It is therefore worth betting on cosmetics formulated with actives with high hydrating and antioxidant properties, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Alistin, and Hyaluronic Acid.
However, it is after the age of 30, when we observe the first signs of, that the use of moisturizers formulated with anti-aging substances, especially antioxidants and collagen production stimulators, should be reinforced.
How to care for wrinkles?
The skincare routine for those who already have wrinkles should start with facial cleaning, both in the morning and at night, with natural cleansers. Afterwards, you should clean with a tonic. If it is more normal to dry skin, the product should be alcohol-free and with soothing extracts. If your skin is more oily, mixed or acneic, the ideal is to opt for a tonic formulated with substances that are more astringent.
