Men’s Skincare Dilemma: How To Get Rid of Lines and Wrinkles
Posted on November 15 2016
Who says frown lines and forehead wrinkles are skin issues that only concerns women? Today’s modern men dedicate a significant amount of time and attention to skincare which is why it is definitely safe to say both men and women worry about those furrows or horizontal lines one way or another.
Creases, crow’s feet, laugh lines – you may call them whatever you want but it won’t change the fact that they are practically the same. Lines and wrinkles can affect the way you look in a negative way because of how it makes the quality of your skin very poor. They can add years to your actual age and make you look like you have the world on your shoulders. They can make you look stressed out and make you look like you are just plain sad or melancholic.
The loss of collagen and elastin fibers that plump, strengthen and add suppleness to the skin results to premature aging that manifests in the form of lines and wrinkles on the skin. Sun exposure, age, stress, lifestyle choices and skin type are just some of the additional assailants that makes the signs of aging appear earlier than they typically should. Good thing, there are some things you can do to make these skin issues from going away.
We couldn’t emphasize how important it is to apply sunblock to your face and body even if the sun has no plans of coming out. Sun exposure is the number one cause of premature aging – plus the fact that they can cause life threatening damage in the form of skin cancer. Lather up on a generous amount of sunblock and limit your time outdoors as much as possible in an effort to stay safe.
Did you know that smoking can accelerate the development of lines and wrinkles? The tobacco chemical, nicotine, compresses the blood vessels which makes it difficult for the oxygen and nutrients to be distributed all over the body and skin. Nicotine also discharges enzymes that are found to put collagen and elastin production at halt which dramatically creates lines and wrinkles faster than you can imagine.
A religious skincare routine for men will also help reverse the signs of aging you already have. For starters, you should practice washing your face daily to get rid of all the dirt on your skin. You need to follow it up with a toner that will provide additional cleansing action by removing other impurities your facial wash may have left behind. Use a moisturizer that have antioxidants and retinol which have been found to be very effective in preventing lines and wrinkles from progressing and minimizing those that already see. Don’t forget to exfoliate once or twice to remove dead skin cells and reveal a more youthful complexion.
