How to Combat the 5 Types of Wrinkles

facial exercisesDid you know that there are five different types of wrinkles? It’s true—and since not all wrinkles are the same, neither is their treatment. Just like these signs of aging are caused by different sources, they require different techniques for minimizing their appearance.

Read on to learn how to tackle the five different types of wrinkles.

1. Dynamic Expression Wrinkles

These babies are causes by repetitive expressions, such as smiling, frowning and laughing, which is why they’re often called “laugh lines.” They typically start out as fine lines that disappear when you stop making the expression, but over time, grow more deeply etched and become permanent. To combat: Don’t make the leap into Botox territory to make these go away. Instead, do facial exercises twice a day. In just two weeks, you’ll start to see smoother skin. Avoid overexposure to the sun and smoking—both these habits expedite the transformation from dynamic to static wrinkles.

2. Atrophic Creases

These deep parallel lines appear on the forehead and between the brows when furrowed, also known as the “Elevens.” They become more apparent with age since the collagen and elastin in our skin diminishes over time. They also worsen with fat loss, dehydrated skin and photodamage. To combat: Atrophic wrinkles can definitely be improved with a consistent Facercise practice! Limit sun exposure, wear sunscreen daily and reduce stress with a healthy habit like meditation.

3. Compression Wrinkles

These deep lines form on the face, neck and décolletage as a result of sleeping on your stomach or side. Your face and body squishes against the mattress or pillow and puts pressure on the skin. At first, compression wrinkles go away soon after you wake up. Over time, they stop disappearing and stay for the long haul. To combat: Sleep on your back. Use silk pillowcases or even a special pillow that alleviates pressure on the skin. Do facial exercises to counteract that compression!

4. Elastic Wrinkles

These tiny wrinkles on the upper lips, cheek and neck are a direct result of too much sun exposure, free radical damage and other factors that cause oxidative stress. To combat: Avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine. Facial exercises are an excellent remedy as they boost circulation, which helps promote collagen production. Eat an antioxidant-rich diet to help combat the free radical scavengers that deplete collagen and elastin supplies.

5. Gravitation Folds

These folds are a combination of saggy skin and wrinkles that can significantly age our appearance. They are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin from aging and UV damage. To combat: Use a retinol product to boost collagen and exfoliate dead skin cells. Facercise consistently and eat an antioxidant-rich diet. Radio-frequency and ultrasound treatments can also help tighten and firm the skin.

Top 10 Anti-Aging Habits

facial exercisesGood habits are everything when it comes to looking and feeling your very best. Many studies show that how you stave off the signs of aging isn’t entirely dependent on genetics. In fact, lifestyle, environment and our skincare regimen play a significant role. From wearing sunscreen and getting facials to doing facial exercises every day, there are habits to master that will help prevent the signs of aging while imparting a beautiful glow.

Incorporate some of the habits below to maintain your youthful good looks.

Hydrate Properly

Drink plenty of water and green tea to hydrate your skin from the inside out. This helps maintain a dewy glow and can plump up the fines lines dehydration causes.

Live a Clean Lifestyle

Eat a healthy, antioxidant-rich die. Choose lean protein, whole grains and lots of colorful fruits and veggies. If you must drink alcohol, do so moderately.

Wear Sunscreen

Protect your skin from exposure to the sun’s harsh UV rays that cause wrinkles, deplete collagen stores and cause the formation of sun spots and hyperpigmentation. Apply sunblock to your skin every single day, no matter what the weather is like.

Rock Sunglasses

Sunglasses help prevent the squinting that leads to Crow’s feet while shielding the fragile skin from the sun’s dangerous rays. For next level protection, opt for lenses with a UV400 protection label, which can block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays.

Incorporate Vitamin C

Consume a vitamin C-rich diet and apply a serum like our Vitamin C Complex Serum to combat damage from the sun and other environmental stressors.

Don’t Smoke

Smoking ages skin fast and ruthlessly. It dulls the complexion, clogs pores and depletes the oxygen supply. It causes deep vertical lines around the mouth and Crow’s feet. Smoking also breaks down collagen, which gives skin its elasticity and slows healing. It’s one of the worst things you can do to your skin.

Don’t Frown

Avoids frowning, squinting and making other facial movements that cause fine lines and wrinkles to form. When you frown repetitively, it causes angry looking creases like the dreaded brow furrow, also known as the “Elevens.”

Minimize Stress

Stress takes a serious toll on your skin. Make it a point to engage in activities that minimize its impact. Some excellent options include working out, yoga or Pilates, meditation, reading or getting a massage.

Sleep on Your Back

When you sleep on your stomach or your side, it causes deep folds and wrinkles on your face, neck and decolletage.  Sleep on our back to prevent these lines and to promote a healthy spine.

Do Facial Exercises

Facercise smooths wrinkles and promotes collagen production while firming and lifting the skin. Facial exercises also boost circulation, which imparts a youthful glow.

Work Out

Physical exercise is essential to promote better health and skin. It detoxifies our bodies, reduces stress, helps build muscle mass and boosts circulation, which facilitates the delivery of oxygen to our cells.
