Simple steps to reduce your wrinkles. Have a look.

  • Sleep On Your Back

Sleeping in certain positions night after night leads to “sleep lines” — wrinkles that become etched into the top layers of skin and don’t fade once you’re up. Sleeping on your side leads to wrinkles on cheeks and chin, while sleeping face down gives you a furrowed brow. To cut down on new wrinkles, sleep on your back.

  • Eat More Fish Like Salmon

Salmon (along with other cold-water fish) is a great source of protein, one of the building blocks of great skin. It’s also an awesome source of omega-3 fatty acids. Experts say that essential fatty acids nourish skin and keep it plump and youthful, helping minimize wrinkles.

  • Get Your Reading Glasses – Don’t Squint !!

Making the same expressions over and over — like squinting — overworks facial muscles, forming a groove beneath the skin’s surface. Eventually the groove becomes a wrinkle. Keep those eyes wide: Wear reading glasses if you need them. And get savvy about sunglasses, which can protect skin around the eyes from sun damage and keep you from squinting.

  • Slather On Alpha-hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

These natural acids lift away the top layer of dead skin cells, reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines and surface wrinkles, especially around the eyes. And stronger forms of AHAs may help boost collagen production. Using AHAs can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so wear plenty of sunscreen every day.

  • Don’t Over-Wash Your Face

Often mistake made by people -keep washing their face! Tap water strips skin of moisture and natural oils that protect against wrinkles. Wash your face too often, and you wash away its protection. And unless your soap contains moisturizers, use a gel or cream facial cleanser instead.

  • Wear Your Vitamin C

Some studies have found that creams with vitamin C can raise collagen production, protect against damage from UVA and UVB rays, help reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone, and reduce redness. You have to use a skin product with the right type of vitamin C, though. L-ascorbic acid may be the best for wrinkle relief. You may also see a vitamin C ingredient listed as ascorbyl palmitate.

  • Soy for Skin Care

Soy may improve the appearance of your skin and may even protect it, too. Studies suggest soy applied to the skin or taken as a supplement may help protect against or even heal some of the sun’s damage. And it has also been shown to improve skin’s structure and firmness, and to even out skin tone.

  • Trade Coffee for Cocoa

Once in a while you may try a wrinkle-reducing drink. In one study, researchers found that cocoa with high levels of two antioxidants (epicatechin and catechin) protected skin from sun damage, improved blood flow to skin cells, helped hydration, and made the skin look and feel smoother. Delicious!
