Ways to reduce wrinkles

 

Wear sunscreen. It will protect you from skin cancer, and help prevent wrinkles at the same time.

Don’t smoke. More and more studies are confirming that cigarette smoke ages skin — mostly by releasing an enzyme that breaks down collagen and elastin, important components of the skin.

Get adequate sleep. when you don’t get enough sleep, the body produces excess cortisol, a hormone that breaks down skin cells. Get enough rest and you’ll produce more HGH (human growth hormone), which helps skin remain thick, more “elastic,” and less likely to wrinkle.

Eat more fisha great source of protein — one of the building blocks of great skin — it’s also an awesome source of an essential fatty acid known as omega-3. Essential fatty acids help nourish skin and keep it plump and youthful, helping to reduce wrinkles.

Eat more soy So far, most of the proof has come from animal studies, but research does show certain properties of soy may help protect or heal some of the sun’s photo-aging damage.

Trade coffee for cocoa. In a study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2006, researchers found cocoa containing high levels of two dietary flavanols (epicatchin and catechin) protected skin from sun damage, improved circulation to skin cells, affected hydration, and made the skin look and feel smoother.

Eat more fruits and vegetables. The key is their antioxidant compounds. These compounds fight damage caused by free radicals (unstable molecules that can damage cells), which in turn helps skin look younger and more radiant.
