This term is used for vitamin A compounds, such as retinol and retinoic acid. These ingredients have long been used topically to help repair sun-damaged skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Protect your skin from the sun every day. Whether it's spending a day at the beach or running errands, sun protection is essential.
You can protect your skin by looking for shade, covering yourself with clothing that protects you from the sun, such as a lightweight long-sleeved shirt, pants, a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses with UV protection, and using broad-spectrum, SPF 30 (or higher), water-resistant sunscreen. Sunscreen should be applied every day to all skin that is not covered by clothing. For more effective protection, look for clothing with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) label. Apply self-tanner instead of tanning.
Every time you get a tan, you age your skin prematurely. This applies if you are tanning with the sun, a sunbed, or other indoor tanning equipment. They all emit harmful UV rays that accelerate how quickly skin ages. Smoking greatly accelerates how quickly skin ages.
It causes wrinkles and a dull and tight complexion. When you make a facial expression, you contract the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract the same muscles for many years, these lines become permanent. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce lines caused by squinting.
While retinoids are considered to be one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients available to us, retinoids, especially prescription retinoids, can also be extremely effective treatments for acne. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that our body produces. It is usually found in eye fluids and between joints and tissues. Many skin care products now include hyaluronic acid, which claims to be a good skin moisturizer that can help reduce wrinkles.
