HOW TO GET RID OF WRINKLES
Aging is a natural process and can appear in the form of wrinkles. I know a lot of women dread their first signs of aging and want to do whatever it takes to reverse the signs. There is a negative stigma attached to wrinkles in our society, however, it is important that we learn to embrace such a natural process of life and not be so harsh on ourselves when they do show up. Here at AMR, we are all about promoting beauty in every shape and form. There are treatments out there that can help assist in slowing down the process and reducing the appearance of wrinkling, however, there is no way to get rid of wrinkles completely unless undertaking more invasive procedures. It is important that you know the facts before buying into products as there are so many products on the market that claim to have anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties.
Types of wrinkles
Wrinkles can be divided into two categories:
- Fine surface lines (caused by ultraviolet light)
- Deep furrows (caused by muscle contraction)
Generally, wrinkle treatments are more effective for finer lines. Deeper crease wrinkles will require more invasive treatments such as injection of fillers or plastic surgery, which will not be discussed in this article. Topical treatments are more effective for fine lines on the surface.
What causes wrinkles?
Some factors influencing the development of wrinkling include:
- Degree of natural skin pigmentation
- Exposure to the sun and ultraviolet
- Hereditary traits
- Loss of fat under the skin
Based on this, there are also causes of wrinkles that are beyond our control, but also a result of lifestyle choices.
How to get rid of wrinkles
Medical and topical treatments only
There are many products out there that will help improve the signs of wrinkles. These products will commonly contain:
- Vitamin A acid (Tretinoin)
Tretinoin is widely used in anti-ageing products and is one of the most successful in treating ageing skin and fine lines. It causes the cells of the skin to grow and die more rapidly, and therefore increasing the renewal of cells and reduce some wrinkles.
- Alpha-Hydroxy acids
Alpha-hydroxy acids are derived from fruit and sugars, such as sugar cane, apples, pears oranges, lemons, grapes and milk. They work mainly as an exfoliant and cause the cells of the epidermis (outermost layer of your skin) to come off, allowing for regrowth of new skin. They can also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. They have a special ability to penetrate the skin and is most effective at a concentration of 5 to 8 percent and at a pH of 3 to 4.
Antioxidants assist the skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. It helps reduce signs of aging by calming inflamed skin and tightening or toning. Antioxidants can help plump out the skin and make it appear more youthful. Vitamin C and E are especially beneficial to wrinkled skin.
- Bee Venom
In 2013, Dailymail released an article titled: “The new buzz in cosmetics? Bee venom creams that fool your face into thinking it’s been stung for more youthful looking skin” Bee venom was the latest craze used by the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Cornwall and celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Kylie Minogue and Michelle Pfeiffer after cosmetic range Rodial launched a new skin care line using bee venom to improve the damaging effects of menopause. Honey bee venom was tested on 14 women aged between 50 and 59, improving the texture of their skin, and reducing lines and wrinkles. How the product works is by fooling the skin into thinking it has been stung with the toxin melittin. The body will react by sending blood directly to the area and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
Collagen is what helps give skin strength and elasticity, as well as replacing dead skin cells. Elastin helps your skin return to its original position when it is poked or pinched. Bee venom can have some relaxing properties and has widespread popularity in Korea. The commercial use of bee venom also does not harm any bees; the bee’s lance remains in its body and a valuable light brown powder is collected.
