wrinkle prevention
No one wants wrinkles. The leading cause of wrinkles is tanning. Although most don’t know it, tanning is a sign of damage to the skin and wrinkles are no different—these are caused primarily by exposure to sun throughout ones life.

This process must be stopped of course.

Simply using sunscreen, with an SPF of at least 15, can prevent wrinkles.

Amazingly, another major cause of wrinkling is smoking cigarettes. The evidence has been observed in smokers 20 years of age or slightly older. Quitting smoking is nothing but beneficial to those who want to stop. Tools to quit can be found at the American Cancer Society and WebMD, for instance.

Smiling, frowning and squinting create wrinkles too. Corrective lenses and sunglasses go a long way in avoiding wrinkle.

Surprisingly, sleeping on your back can prevent face lines. Otherwise over years, sleeping on your face can etch lines on the forehead, chin and cheeks.

Drastic gains and losses in weight and can create wrinkles too, although most people likely aren’t aware of these factors.
