Whether it’s due to the effects of ageing, or if you’re just struggling with dryness and dehydration - fine lines and wrinkles aren’t fun to deal with and reducing their appearance can be a tedious and frustrating process. Let’s talk about how you can prevent and deal with fine lines and wrinkles.
What are they?
According to Mayo Clinic, wrinkles are lines and creases that form in your skin and are especially noticeable around the eyes, mouth and neck. Fine lines are a milder, less deep set version of wrinkles.
Contrary to popular belief, ageing isn’t the only cause for wrinkles and lines. Genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors such as stress, lack of sleep, smoking, excessive sun exposure, and pollution can lead to these developing at any stage.
How can you prevent them?
Although wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process, there are things you can do to reduce their appearance over time. Making better choices when it comes to lifestyle and your overall skincare routine can drastically improve how your skin looks. This means cutting down or quitting smoking completely, ensuring that you stay hydrated and introducing a more balanced diet.
Since prolonged sun exposure and dehydration make wrinkles appear more prominently on your skin, switching to a moisturiser such as our Manuka natural sun protect moisturiser can help you combat both. Formulated with Manuka honey, plant oils and natural zinc oxide (which protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays), this nourishing face cream will leave your skin feeling (and looking) moisturised and bouncy.
If crow’s feet and under-eye puffiness are your issue, then our Manuka Natural Eye Concentrate -with UMF 15+ Manuka honey, bisabolol and Hyaluronic acid - is just what the doctor ordered. It’s also got our fav, Seabuckthorn oil, which is rich in vitamins, carotene and phytosterols to stimulate healthy cell renewal.
Your unique imperfections and experiences make you beautiful and embracing the changes doesn’t mean you can’t give your skin a little extra attention. Protect your glow naturally, while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
