In today’s world where beauty is considered all too important, we usually hear about the danger of wrinkles at a very young age and the idea of getting wrinkles often haunts us for the rest of our life. Some of us become obsessed with this fear of getting wrinkles, and others spend a fortune trying to get rid of them. No matter how you handle wrinkles, preventing them is the easiest and wisest thing to do.
Once wrinkles start appearing it is almost impossible to get rid of them. The real trick is to make certain you take care of your skin – all over. Some families tend to get wrinkles early because it’s in their genes, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to care for your skin thinking that wrinkles are inevitable. That means you spend more time caring for your skin!
When it comes to wrinkles and other types of skin damage, the sun is the major culprit. Therefore, everyone should use a good sunscreen on a daily basis. All skin that is exposed ‘ your face, neck, hands, and even feet ‘ should be covered each time you go outside. This is the same no matter what climate you live in. It’s not the heat that causes the damage; it’s the sun’s UV rays. And of course UV rays happen even in the coldest of climates.
Anyone who was ever taken to the beach on a regular basis as a child, without the benefit of sunscreen, runs the risk of experiencing serious skin problems later on in life. Wrinkles, cancer, warts, bumps, brown spots ‘ these are attributable to early sun damage that remains dormant for sometimes decades.
Even smokers who tend to stay out of the sun are prone to some pretty bad wrinkles. Cigarettes will rob the body of necessary oxygen, thereby dehydrating the skin and causing deep wrinkles and dry patches. Aside from maybe some expensive plastic surgery, there’s nothing that can be done at that point.
Smokers who are also sun worshippers have some of the most severe skin problems to deal with.
