With age, comes wrinkles and fine lines. It is simply the natural result of collagen and elastin loss with the passing of time. However, a lot of things, such as UV exposure, facial muscle strength, repetitive facial expressions and pressures (such as sleeping on one side of your face), staring into screens, stress, pollution, bad habits (think alcohol, smoking, a lot of sugar), and genetics, can speed up their appearance and affect their severity.
With that being said, you can improve and slow down the appearance of wrinkles, or make them less noticeable, with good skincare without getting lasers or botox.
A lot of things play a role in affecting when wrinkles start appearing, but remember, preventative measures are always better than cure. So after 25, before your first wrinkle appears, is actually not too soon to start!
Oxidative stress and free-radical damage break down collagen and elastin fibers, hinders skin’s natural repair process and triggers inflammation, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. Period. By scavenging free radicals, antioxidants can help prevent and correct these visible signs of aging. Don’t rely on just one kind of antioxidant though, as research has shown that different antioxidants target different free radicals differently, so choose a product that contains a variety of antioxidants——and the more the better.

Clinically studies have proven this French-patented, expensive ingredient can increase elastin synthesis by 40-45%, increases self hyaluronic acid synthesis by 36-92%, lift skin by 27%, and improve skin elasticity by 16% with 28 days of continued use day and night. Which means, in short, less wrinkles and plumper skin!

UV rays can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin, leading to wrinkles and sagging, yet 90% of us fail to use an adequate amount of sunscreen (and let’s not forget sunscreen cannot block out 100% UV damages to begin with). It is therefore best to add in a product that can prevent such daily UV-induced damage, promote cell regeneration, prevent degradation of collagen and elastin, and reverse photoaging at the cellular level.

Retinol is one of the few potent anti-aging ingredients that is widely recognized by both the dermatological and scientific communities. This star ingredient not only activates collagen and epidermal growth factor receptors, promotes cellular turnover, and stimulates self collagen and elastin production, thereby reducing wrinkles, it is also highly effective in treating acne, dullness, scarring, hyperpigmentation and rough skin texture.

If you are still not comfortable with using retinol, choosing products that are high in beta-carotene, or pro-vitamin A, will also help to promote cell regeneration, repair the skin, provide potent antioxidant protection, and protect the skin from wrinkles and premature aging, yet in a more mild capacity.

Peptides are essentially proteins that are the building blocks of the skin. Without them, what you will see is loss of firmness, appearance of wrinkles, and skin that doesn’t bounce back as it once did. So choose a product with peptides, and allow them to stimulate the growth of new cells and collagen synthesis, regenerate collagen fibers, reduce wrinkles, improve skin barrier function, and slow the glycation process, so the skin stays firm and supple.
