ways to prevent
wrinkles

Even though we can’t fight the signs of time indefinitely, we don’t have to give in either! Here are the best ways to wage war on wrinkles.

1

Do some
facial
gymnastics

Facial gymnastics is the new trendy anti-aging exercise. Inspired by ancient ayurvedic techniques, it focuses on relaxing the face, toning the muscles and stimulating blood flow. A facial gymnastics session provides a moment of relaxation, it’s a bit like getting a massage. Thanks to specific exercises, you can plump up your face by increasing the muscle volume of certain loose areas, such as eyelids, the contour of your lips and the neck. All you need to do is stretch by opening your mouth and eyes as wide as possible and then closing them tight, and massage your skin using your fingertips to alleviate, smooth and calm your features. You can do this in the morning before undertaking your regular beauty routine.

2

Protect your skin
from the sun

UVA rays represent about 95% of the UV rays that reach the earth. They are also responsible for making the skin age (loss of firmness and appearance of wrinkles). They pass through clouds, glass and the skin, and they alter the cells over the long-term which can sometimes cause skin cancer. To protect yourself properly, you need to use a sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30 on your entire body, every day in the summer and winter. A good way to integrate this product into your beauty routine is to use daily moisturizing products with SPF. But keep in mind that if you’re going to go outside when the sun is at its peak, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., you need to reapply sunscreen every two hours. Same goes for when you’ve been sweating, swimming or have dried off with a towel.

3

Watch what
you eat

What do you need to eat to age well? Tea, soya, garlic, cabbage, bright vegetables and fruits, germinated seeds, legumes, cereal, fish that does not contain heavy metals, avocado, berries, nuts and almonds, oils (olive, nut, colza, camelina, hemp, linseed) eggs rich in omega-3, dark chocolate and aromatic herbs and spices are natural ingredients
that have many anti-aging properties. Dietary supplements
enriched with essential vitamins are also recommended
by most doctors and nutritionists. And finally,
avoid foods polluted by pesticides.

4

Drink enough
water

Our skin isn’t alone in being affected by dehydration as it ages, our body is too. To restore and nourish your body, drink lots of water – 6 to 8 tall glasses a day. To purify your body, improve its hepatic functions and brighten your complexion, you can also drink a glass of hot water containing a bit of lemon juice every morning. A healthy glow guaranteed!

5

Sleep well
every night

Several studies show that a lack of sleep accelerates the skin’s aging process. In fact, wrinkles, pigmentation and sagging are all more visible after a sleepless night. On the other hand, the epidermis recovers better from stress after a good
night of sleep (8 to 10 hours, depending on
the person). The skin seems smoother,
more even and brighter the next morning,
and the facial features seem
more relaxed.

6

Properly
moisturize your skin

It’s a known fact that older skins are often dry, even dehydrated. The causes? Skin aging, the repeated contraction of facial muscles and hormonal changes. This results in a slowdown of the production of collagen and eslastin, a loss of volume and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The solution? Apply the proper amount of moisturizer morning and night after cleaning your skin to hydrate, restore and firm your parched epidermis.

7

Clean your
skin and
remove makeup
every day

We’ve heard this time and time again:
to prevent the signs of aging, you need to
remove your makeup every night and
clean your skin twice a day. But is this a myth
or a fact? Most dermatologists and
scientists agree: clean skin doesn’t age as fast
because it is not as susceptible to micro-inflammation, a phenomenon that has been blamed as the major cause of visible aging. In fact, fatty tissue and pollutants that accumulate on the skin can cause oxidation and inflammation, and hinder the skin’s capacity to act as a barrier which dries the skin, increases its sensitivity and makes the epidermis more vulnerable to environmental aggressors. How do you combat these harmful effects? Clean your face every morning and night with an extremely gentle product and use a good makeup remover to get rid of any trace of makeup before you go to bed.

8

Avoid excess
of any kind

Nothing slows down the skin aging process like eliminating excess of any kind: tobacco, alcohol, pollution, junk food… After a few short weeks, you’ll look healthier and more rested, your complexion will be smoother and brighter, your face will be firmer, and your wrinkles and fine lines will be much less visible.

9

The right anti-wrinkle cream

There are a thousand anti-aging treatments available on the market. And the number of specialized products only increases every year. Which ones do you pick to fight deep wrinkles and fine lines as efficiently as possible? Serums and creams
containing key ingredients such as
antioxidants (vitamins A, C and E), AHA
hyaluronic acid, retinol and peptides
are the ones usually recommended
by experts. Apply every morning and
night after cleaning your skin and
removing your makeup.
