The 10 gestures to prevent the apparition of wrinkles

Many external factors such as sun abuse, pollution, environment (cold, wind, heat), our lifestyle or improper skincare can accelerate skin aging. Here are 10 good habits to take in order to "mettre toutes les chances de son côté" for a young skin longer:

1. Adopt a healthy lifestyle

Stress, a too rich and unbalances diet, alcohol, and cigarettes are all factors that contribute to the accelerated aging of the skin. Whenever possible, try to adopt a healthy lifestyle, do sport and limit overweight foods and cigarettes. Your skin will be better off!

2. Favor a varied and anti-aging diet

Eating fruits and vegetables, products rich in omega-3s and antioxidants is the key to young, fresh skin.

The omega-3 that you find in salmon, tuna, olive oil, and walnut is to privilege because they provide good fat to the skin, necessary for a visibly hydrated skin.

The antioxidants contained in the majority of fruits and vegetables (raspberries, green tea, tomatoes, etc...) help the skin to eliminate toxins and thus obtain a beautiful bright skin.

For an ideal intake of omega-3 and omega-6, it is important to focus on the variety of vegetal oils you consume because their nutritional composition varies. You can alternate between olive oil, sunflower or coconut for sweet dishes.

3. Drink a lot of water

You probably know it already, but it is recommended to drink at least 2 liters of water a day, a little more during hot periods. This ensures hydration of the skin tissues from the inside and prevents dehydration.

4. Bet on natural dietary supplements to slow down the appearance of wrinkles

To prevent wrinkles
Between 25 and 32 years, bet on " beautiful skin" food supplements such as borage oil supplements to provide optimal hydration or natural antioxidants for a brighter complexion. As soon as the first wrinkles and fine lines appear, you can start taking supplements to help delay the signs of aging.

For mature skin
Wrinkles are permanent breaks that appear on the skin, especially the face. This is due to a deficiency of collagen and hyaluronic acid. The most effective dietary supplements to fight wrinkles are therefore composed of hyaluronic acid or marine collagen.

5. Opt for double-cleaning, the secret for a perfect skin

Clean your skin daily is THE gesture anti-wrinkle beauty par excellence
It is essential to properly remove your makeup and cleanse your skin, to eliminate all toxins, residues, bacteria or traces of pollution that can foul the skin and reduce the action of your skincare. The double cleansing method makes it possible to keep a beautiful skin longer and give it a boost and release it from its imperfections!

6. Use anti-aging treatments adapted to your skin type

Start by determining what is your skin type

Use moisturizing creams suitable for your skin type and needs. For example, if you have oily skin but with tightness in winter, using a cream for dry skin is not the best solution because it probably suffers from dehydration.

Get to know your skin type by detecting areas that tend to shine and  make the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin.

  • If your skin does not shine, it means that you have dry to very dry skin and that you need to nourish and moisturize it at the risk of seeing deep wrinkles appear earlier.
  • If your T-zone of the face (forehead, chin) is oily, this is a sign that you have combination skin.
  • A skin that tends to shine everywhere is an oily skin.

7. Know the right gestures to fight wrinkles according to your age

When to start preventing wrinkles?

From 25 years old: add to your routine a serum and an eye contour
Around 25, the microcirculation becomes lazier, at this time it is therefore recommended to start using a serum for a deeper hydration of the skin tissues and a care around the eyes. The skin around the eyes is indeed very fine and it is the first to show signs of aging. It is therefore particularly important to treat it and choose appropriate care. At 25, it is not necessarily necessary to choose an anti-aging eye contour but rather a moisturizer one with a light and refreshing texture like the  Energising Eye Gel.

Anti-aging care for mature skin
A mature skin no longer has the same needs, adapting your care routine will help you better protect it against aging.

From 40, think to introduce anti-aging skincare fighting against wrinkles because a mature skin does not have the same needs as a young skin and needs more hydration. An eye contour cream is essential because it is a particularly fragile area that tends to age faster than the rest of the face. This will help prevent the apparition of crow's feet.

Finally, if you have pigment spots, add to your routine an anti-dark spot correcting care as the Dark Spot Correcting Serum to fade them and protect your skin against the apparition of future stains.

8. Protect your skin from aggression

On a daily basis, apply a sunscreen and an antiradical shield

It is essential to protect your skin from free radicals, pollution, and UV because these repeated daily aggressions are the first cause of skin aging and damage the skin deeply. Indeed, UVA and UVB that penetrate the skin create lesions, thereby deteriorating the collagen and elastin fibers and causing what is called the phenomenon of "photo-aging".

To protect your skin, consider applying sunscreen daily and use anti-free radical shielding skincare such as the  Antioxidant Smoothing Cream or a mist protecting against aggression and pollution such as the  Anti-Pollution Hydra-Defense Mist.

9. Adopt the facial gym "anti-aging"

To perform an anti-aging massage, always start by the center of the face to the outward with upward movements. It is important to never make these movements downward or you will have the opposite effect.

For an anti-aging facial massage, be delicate and do the following:
  1. Take a small amount of your moisturizer,
  2. Gently massage the wings of the nose up to the temples 3 to 5 times,
  3. Then from the commissures of the mouth to the ears,
  4. Perform these upward movements one last time from the chin to the temples
  5. Finally, take a little bit of your eye cream and lightly press your fingers from the inner corners of the eyes, below the eye to the temples.

Did you know that you could use a jade-roller that helps to strengthen the action of creams and is very effective at improving the firmness of the skin in addition to relaxing you?

10. Opt for a relaxing activity

Chronic stress causes a decrease in the reserves of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamins ... which protect the skin from skin aging. Thus, stress accentuates the premature aging of the skin and accentuates the formation of wrinkles, loss of radiance and elasticity.

If you tend to be stressed or have a stressful lifestyle or job, find an activity that helps you to relax. This can be yoga, sophrology or relaxing spa treatments.
