HOW TO GET RID OF WRINKLES

Skin ageing is inevitable, however, there are ways that can help with wrinkle treatment. Find out how to stop wrinkles and keep youthful skin for longer with our anti-ageing tips.

WHY DO WE GET WRINKLES?

Before trying to figure out how to get rid of wrinkles, it’s important to know how they appear in the first place. After all, knowing what causes them, is undoubtedly the best way to prevent wrinkles.

One of the biggest perpetrators is sun exposure. As we get older, our skin naturally becomes dryer and sun radiation damages the skin’s collagen, making the skin lose its elasticity.
Late nights, feeling stressed, smoking and poor diet also play a big part in causing fine lines and wrinkles.

WHEN DO YOU NEED TO START THE ANTI WRINKLE TREATMENT?

In your early twenties, your skin may still be oily, and you may have the remnants of teenage breakouts and blackheads. By the time you get to your mid-twenties, your skin can start to get dryer. Although this usually means you don’t have to contend with lots of spots, it can mark the start of wrinkles forming. Start incorporating anti-ageing products into your skincare routine from your mid-twenties in order to prevent wrinkles from appearing.

The first signs of ageing appear when the antioxidant production drops - antioxidants are responsible for neutralizing the free radicals that are produced both by our bodies and external factors such as sun damage, pollution or smoking.

Caring for your skin with NIVEA Energy Healthy Glow Day Cream will help with wrinkle treatment, as it contains antioxidants, vitamin C & vitamin E that prevent skin from skin-damaging free radicals and wrinkle formation.


HOW TO GET RID OF WRINKLES AND FINE LINES - 5 EASY STEPS

PROPER CLEANSING

While you want to keep your face clean, it is important not to stress your skin by over washing. Excess use of cleansers can strip the skin of its own lipids, that protect the skin from drying out. NIVEA Sensitive Cleansing Milk gently cleanses while maintaining skin’s moisture balance.

Facial Exercises

Tone your face with facial exercises that can help you improve the firmness of the skin and reduce wrinkles.

MOISTURISING

As you age, your skin naturally becomes dryer. By including NIVEA Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Pearls Serum in your anti-ageing skincare routine, you are treating your skin with the formula including hyaluronic acid and skin’s own coenzyme Q10, which promotes younger-looking skin.

STAY HYDRATED

It’s as important to hydrate your skin from inside. Make sure to drink enough water to keep your skin hydrated. Also, you can try herbal teas or green tea - as it’s full of antioxidants that can help you improve your skin.

Limit your sugar intake

Sugar damages collagen and elastin, proteins that are responsible for keeping skin’s elasticity. A sugar-heavy diet can really affect your skin ageing.

HOW TO STOP WRINKLES - WEAR SPF DAILY

Spending time in the sun is important, as it exposes you to UV rays that allow Vitamin D production. However, harmful rays from the sun can contribute to the collagen breakdown in the skin. 

Make sure to wear sunscreen with a high SPF every day - Sun can affect your skin even on the cloudy days! NIVEA SUN Q10 Anti-Age & Anti-Pigments SPF 50 is a great facial sunscreen that protects skin from developing wrinkles and fine lines.

Another solution is to opt for a day cream with SPF - NIVEA Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream SPF15 contains UVA and UVB filters that protect the skin from sun overexposure and prevents the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. The moisturiser with creatine, coenzyme Q10 and SPF also helps to get rid of wrinkles that have already developed and makes the skin visibly smoother.

HOW TO GET RID OF FOREHEAD WRINKLES?

While our genes dictate to a certain extent how well or soon we age, exaggerated or frequent facial movements can cause premature ageing on the forehead. Frowning or raising our eyebrows as we talk is more than skin deep. If you’re wondering how to get rid of forehead wrinkles, try to avoid frowning as the muscles retain this memory, making the fine lines permanent on our forehead over time.

HOW TO GET RID OF WRINKLES WITH ANTI-AGEING PRODUCTS

When you pick up anti-ageing skin care products, look for the right ingredients that will help you to improve your skin:
1. Q10 - a coenzyme naturally produced in our body that helps generate energy in our cells. Q10 repairs and regenerates our skin and makes it look youthful and revitalised;
2. Vitamins C & E - antioxidants that help to prevent skin ageing;
3. Vitamin A - an important ingredient that can reverse the signs of ageing: it helps to rebuild collagen and repairs sun damage;
4. Chemical exfoliants - acid exfoliators can help to stimulate collagen production and stimulate cell production. If you have dry skin, go for glycolic or lactic acid, or try salicylic acid if you have combination/oily skin.

 

NIVEA Hyaluron Cellular Filler Anti Age Serum is the ultimate pamper serum for your skin. Get ready to wave wrinkles goodbye and embrace smoother, younger-looking skin with this hyaluron-enriched product. 

For wrinkle treatment at night, try NIVEA Q10 Power Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream. It deeply regenerates and moisturises skin while you sleep at night, when the skin is the most receptive.
