How to Reduce the Appearance of Fine Lines

Would you love to turn back the hands of time and reduce the appearance of fine lines? I started noticing fine lines in my early thirties and there was no way that I was ready for them. At 51, I have more than I care to think about. As you age, your skin loses collagen and elasticity. The result is the fine lines and wrinkles I see as I look in the mirror each morning.

Reduce the Appearance of Fine Lines

We all know that things like Botox and injections can help eliminate these fine lines and wrinkles but those options are just not for me.  Thankfully, there are options that you can take advantage of at home to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. While your results will vary,  I have found that these steps can help improve the condition of your skin.

Add Antioxidants

Add antioxidants to your skincare routine.  Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant ingredient that is in many skin care products. Evening primrose oil is also high in antioxidant properties. Green tea extracts contain catechins that have many antioxidant properties.

Protect Your Skin

Always wear an SPF when you are out in the sun. Prevention is the best medicine. Choose an SPF of at least 30 and for those that have sensitive, pale skin, look for a product with an SPF of 45 or higher. If you’ll be applying it to your face, be sure that it’s intended to be applied there. You can buy face products that have built-in SPF protection.

Moisturize Daily

Moisturize to improve the texture of your skin. Skin that is moist looks better and the fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable. I’ve found that the Dermae Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer works wonderfully to help keep my skin soft and hydrated. Whatever you choose, use it every single day to help slow down the aging process.

Use Facial Cleanser

Use a cleanser instead of bar soap to wash your face.  Bar soap can strip your skin of its natural barrier oils which will dry out your skin. See Moisturize Daily above. Check out the Dermae Cleansing Oil and Sea Salt Scrub.

How to prevent fine lines

The eye area is much more sensitive than the rest of your face. And, you are more likely to see wrinkles in this area before another. The Dermae Firming DMAE Eye Lift contains Peptides and Vitamin B3 to help firm the area around your eyes.

Drink More Water

I know you’ve heard this said a hundred times but drinking enough water each day can go a long way toward improving your skin’s appearance. Fill up a reusable water bottle and set it on your desk. Make it a goal to drink several each day. You can even use an app on your smartphone to remind you and track how much you drink.
