Surprising Ways to Reduce Wrinkles
Sleep on Your Back
When you sleep in certain positions night after night, it leads to "sleep lines" -- wrinkles that become etched into the top layers of skin and don't fade once you're up. Sleeping on your side leads to wrinkles on cheeks and chin, while sleeping face down gives you a furrowed brow.
Eat More Salmon
Salmon (along with other cold-water fish) is a great source of protein, one of the building blocks of great skin. It also has plenty of omega-3 fatty acids. Experts say essential fatty acids nourish skin and keep it plump and youthful, and that can help minimize wrinkles.
Don't Over-Wash Your Face
Tap water strips skin of moisture and natural oils that protect against wrinkles. If you wash your face too often, you wash away its protection. Use a soap with moisturizers, or a gel or cream cleanser instead.
Wear Your Vitamin C
Some studies have found that creams with vitamin C can boost the amount of collagen your skin makes. Vitamin C, protects against damage from UVA and UVB rays, and helps reduce redness, dark spots and uneven skin tone. You have to use a skin product with the right type of vitamin C, though. L-ascorbic acid may be the best for wrinkle relief. You may also see a vitamin C ingredient listed as ascorbyl palmitate.
