How to Prevent Wrinkles in 5 Steps

How to Prevent Wrinkles in 5 Steps

For some men, wrinkles can start appearing as early as their mid-20s. Whether it’s a result of genetics or too many late nights, it’s never a good feeling to wake up to sagging skin.

Seeing wrinkles in the mirror each day can make you feel far older than your actual age. We know that it can affect not only a guy’s self-esteem, but also his personal life and career. Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do to prevent wrinkles that don’t involve needles or surgery. 

Here are several things every guy ought to know about wrinkle prevention:

  • Although wrinkles can’t be prevented forever, there are ways to slow down their progression.
  • Lifestyle choices (smoking, diet, sun exposure, etc.) can have a significant impact on premature wrinkles.
  • Wearing a daily moisturizer with SPF and reducing sun exposure can slow down signs of aging.

Step #1: Ditch Bad Habits

A lot of men don’t realize that wrinkles are largely influenced by our lifestyle choices. Bad habits such as excessive drinking, smoking and not getting enough sleep can have consequences for our skin.

For instance, sleep is important for a wide range of bodily processes, including the skin’s overnight repairing and renewal process. According to a 2015 study published in Clinical and Experimental Dermatology, researchers found that chronic poor sleep was tied to increased signs of skin aging (see claim: “…chronic poor sleep quality is associated with increased signs of intrinsic aging…diminished skin barrier function…”)

Studies have also shown that alcohol can diminish skin function in several ways. A 2015 review published in Alcohol Research noted that alcohol not only increases intestinal inflammation and oxidative stress, it can mess with genes that control our circadian clock (see claim: “…increases in oxidative stress…increases the expression of circadian clock genes…”)

In other words, alcohol can ruin your sleep and directly hurt the skin through inflammation. To slow down wrinkles and fine lines, make sure to get plenty of sleep and ditch your harmful habits.

Step #2: Use Sunscreen Daily

Nothing ages your skin faster than too much sun exposure. In fact, a 2013 study published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology noted that sun damage may account for around 80 to 90 percent of skin aging (see claim: “…effect of sun exposure (photoaging) in facial aging relative to that of chronological aging…some publications have discussed a ratio closer to 90%...”)

Ultraviolet rays from the sun reduce your skin’s elasticity and degrade its texture, resulting in wrinkly, sagging skin. Although you can’t do anything about past sun exposure, you can start protecting your skin from further sun damage by wearing a daily men’s moisturizer with SPF and by staying out of the sun.

Step #3: Get Your Beauty Sleep

While you sleep, your skin is busy repairing your skin from oxidative stress, which can cause wrinkles and fine lines. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, this process is interrupted, reducing the number of nutrients that are delivered to the skin.

In addition to getting better sleep, consider maximizing your nighttime routine to help keep wrinkles at bay. For example, washing your face each night before bed and following up with a bedtime moisturizer for men will help wash away grime and keep skin hydrated.

Our bedtime moisturizer contains powerful anti-aging ingredients such as peptides, collagen and niacinamide, all of which fight wrinkles and help restore your face’s healthy appearance. Moreover, it’s made to penetrate the thick epidermis of a man’s skin, making it far more effective than your girlfriend’s nighttime moisturizer.

Step #4: Use an Anti-Aging Serum for Men

If you really want to put the brakes on wrinkles, it’s time to pull out your secret weapon. No, we aren’t talking about Botox.

We’re talking about our anti-aging serum for men. This ridiculously high-quality skin care product uses cutting-edge ingredients to tighten the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

How does it work? Our serum is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins to fight off free radicals that cause wrinkles. It also features Retinyl Palmitate, a stabilized form of Vitamin A, and Sodium Hyaluronate, which promotes nutrient absorption and blood microcirculation for a more even skin tone.

Step #5: Make Time for Relaxation

All the skin care products in the world can’t help your skin when you’re constantly stressed to the max. Chronic stress has long been linked to premature aging and can take a huge toll on your appearance and well-being.

Studies have found that stress not only negatively affects your brain, but it can also affect how you look. In a 2001 study published in the Archives of Dermatology, researchers found that the skin’s barrier function was negatively impacted in participants experiencing psychological stress (see claim: “…decline in permeability barrier recovery kinetics after barrier disruption by cellophane tape stripping, in parallel with an increase in perceived psychological stress…”)

While it may sound corny, try to remember to treat yourself to some rest and relaxation on a regular basis. Doing so can help not only your skin, but also your overall health.

Say Goodbye to Wrinkles

Let’s face it, wrinkles are inevitable. That said, you don’t need to give in to them at an early age. Being proactive about your skin care regimen can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, keeping you looking younger for longer.
