If you’re reaching an age where you are noticing a few new lines around your mouth, eyes or forehead & you want to help smooth them out, sans a sharp needle, then keep reading, I have the natural solution for you.
Firstly, let’s break down why we actually develop wrinkles & lines.
Wrinkles develop as a natural part of aging due to intrinsic factors such as the loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, as well as decreased cell turnover. Extrinsic lifestyle, health and environmental factors, including prolonged sun exposure, smoking, pollutants, and repetitive facial expressions, contribute to premature aging and wrinkle formation by damaging skin structures and promoting oxidative stress. Genetics also play a role in determining the rate of aging. Not having a solid skincare routine can further accelerate the appearance of wrinkles.
…So how do we address all of these things?
Yes, it sounds like a lot, and we must do so very much to maintain smooth, plump skin. But let me tell you, You don’t have to have a crazy over the top wellness & skincare routine to avoid wrinkles, nor do you have to forego all facial expressions (a solution I have seen far too many people offer on social media 🤣)
Combining a healthy lifestyle, sun protection, hydration, and a good skincare routine can help minimize the impact of these factors on the skin. Now this means 1. Sunscreen, 2. Hydration, 3. Cleansing & moisturising morning & night, 4. eating the rainbow, 5. Great quality supplements!
When it comes to supplements, there are five that are particularly crucial for skin health and directly contribute to reducing wrinkles & smoothing out your skin:Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that plays a vital role in collagen synthesis. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the skin, helping to maintain elasticity and firmness. Vitamin C also helps protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which can contribute to premature aging and wrinkles.
Another incredibly powerful antioxidant, vitamin E, helps protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. We see so often how decreasing inflammation is the key to longevity and staying healthy, well Vitamin E also has anti-inflammatory properties and supports the skin's natural defences against UV radiation.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for maintaining the skin's lipid barrier, which helps retain moisture and prevent dehydration. They also have anti-inflammatory properties that can contribute to overall skin health. One of the most effective & convenient ways to ensure you’re getting plenty of Omega 3 in your diet is to supplement with fish oil.
Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin, helping it maintain elasticity and firmness. As we age, collagen production naturally decreases, leading to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Studies suggest that collagen supplements may improve skin hydration, elasticity, and the overall appearance of wrinkles. If that weren’t reason enough to get collagen into your diet, it is actually also essential for supporting joint and bone health, contributing to blood vessel integrity, aiding in wound healing, and maintaining the strength of hair, nails, and the digestive system. Now collagen rich foods are things like bone marrow, cartilage, chicken skin and bone broth, things that are often not the most appealing to eat, or very expensive, This is where supplementing with collagen can be a more cost-effective and palatable option.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin that helps retain water, keeping the skin well-hydrated and plump. Like collagen, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases with age, contributing to the development of wrinkles and sagging skin. Hyaluronic acid is often used in skincare products and dermal fillers to hydrate the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But did you know that just like collagen, you can actually supplement with hyaluronic acid to restore volume and moisture to the skin from within?
