As you age, wrinkle formation is almost inevitable. Whether you have spent years enjoying time in the sun without using any sun protection, or you simply have endured the stress that comes with a career or a family, chances are your age is starting to show on your face. Dr. Kevin Sadati, an expert facial plastic surgeon who services Newport Beach and Orange County, recognizes that many people want to eliminate the appearance of wrinkles on their face.
While the facelift is the best way to get long-term age-defying results, many of these natural tricks also will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
5 Ways to Naturally Prevent Wrinkles
Stay hydratedDrinking water is important for your general health, but it’s especially important to maintaining healthy, young-looking skin. The more water you drink, the more hydrated your skin will be. Essentially, by drinking plenty of water you will allow your skin to hide any wrinkles that might be coming to the surface.
Use a facial moisturizerAs you get older, your skin is not able to hold moisture as well as it did in your younger years. This is why a facial moisturizer is essential to looking young, fresh and vibrant. Less moisture in your face will lead to an increase in wrinkles, so use a high-quality moisturizer every night before you go to bed.
Make sleep a top priorityYou know that your body is restoring its energy while you sleep, but you probably didn’t realize that your skin is also regenerating during your snooze. Strive to get at least eight hours of sleep every night, and when you can, sleep on your back. Sleeping on your stomach or on your side can lead to wrinkles on your face as it is pressed against the pillow for significant periods of time.
Choose a topical cream that is rich in antioxidantsYou will want to start using this type of topical cream before wrinkles appear on your face, as it’s better at preventing wrinkles than fixing wrinkles that have already arrived. Choose a facial cream with antioxidant additives like vitamin C or vitamin A.
Create a nutritious, well-balanced meal plan each weekYour skin will glow when you eat a well-balanced diet, especially one that is rich in antioxidants. Fruits and vegetables are wonderful sources of antioxidants, so replace some of your favorite snacks and sweets with healthy alternatives like blueberries, broccoli, corn or red bell peppers.
While these tips and tricks will help you look as young as possible, you may still desire a more defined transformation. If you are interested in a facelift procedure, such as the traditional facelift or the non-surgical facelift, you should contact Dr. Kevin Sadati to set up a free cosmetic consultation.
He will do both a physical and mental evaluation in order to confirm if you are a good candidate for this procedure, and he will then create a custom surgical plan in order to best address your specific needs and desires.
