For some people, seeing their first wrinkle can send them into turmoil. They immediately begin a long line of cosmetic treatments in a bid to aggressively tackle the aging process head-on, leaving them with a face that may look smooth, but also looks unnatural. 

Sure, fine lines and wrinkles can make a person look older, but they’re also a sign of a life well-lived. Instant results from cosmetic treatments can be gratifying, but there are other, more graceful, ways to approach skin aging. Take a more holistic route and you’ll be able to enjoy a firmer and more youthful complexion without having to spend hours each month at your dermatologist’s office.

Sound appealing? Read on as Avinichi explains how to gracefully combat the appearance of fine lines and other signs of aging.

Protect Your Skin From UV Rays

While it’s true that fine lines are inevitable at some point in life, have you ever wondered why some people develop severe wrinkles much sooner than others?

Genetics play a part in this but sun damage is the primary cause of this difference. Studies have found that UV exposure is the key factor behind up to 80% of the visible signs of aging on the face. This means 80% of your wrinkles and dark spots could have been avoided if you had been serious about sun protection from the get-go.

Fortunately, no matter your age, becoming more diligent about sun protection can still make a difference. Start protecting your skin from the sun now and you’ll be able to put a stop to any new areas of damage to your complexion, giving you a breather while you work on the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles that you already have.

Keep Your Skin Hydrated

64% of your skin consists of water. Water makes up a large part of your skin cells, protein fibers, and more, making it absolutely vital if you want your skin to look its best.

Unfortunately, as you age, your skin’s ability to retain moisture declines. The skin naturally thins out and its barrier doesn’t function quite so efficiently. This causes moisture to evaporate out of the skin at a much faster rate than it used to.

This leaves skin cells parched. The immediate impact of this is skin that looks dull and sallow. In the long run, this will get worse while the lack of moisture will also accelerate the skin aging process.

This makes it important to focus on hydration as you age. Start by giving your body the internal hydration that it needs. This equates to roughly eight cups of water a day. Then, make sure that your skin is sufficiently hydrated from the outside too. Very little of the water that you consume reaches the outer layers of your skin, which is why topical hydration is so crucial.

Fortunately, there are plenty of skincare products out there that can help with this. From hydrating toners to hydrating serums, ensure that multiple stages of your skincare routine incorporate hydrating ingredients and you’ll be able to enjoy a plumper and smoother complexion. 

Cleanse Away Impurities Twice a Day

Cleansing is a pretty basic part of skincare, yet this is something that can be hugely influential when it comes to how quickly aging takes its toll on your skin.

Keeping your skin clean will reduce the number of environmental pollutants and impurities that make their way into the deeper layers of your skin. Once there, they wreak havoc in the form of free radical damage, a precursor to aging. 

Cleansing also allows any other skincare products that you’re using to properly penetrate your skin. They won’t have to fight past a barrier of sebum, dead skin cells, and more. Instead, they’ll be able to soak right on through, giving you better results from the products that you use.

Ideally, you should be cleansing your skin twice a day. However, this means being careful about the cleanser that you choose to use. As your skin ages, it becomes more susceptible to damage, making it important to be gentle with your skin. A cleanser that’s too potent will only chip away at your skin’s natural barrier, leaving you even more prone to skin aging.

As such, avoid harsh exfoliating or foaming cleansers, opting instead for a cream or a mousse cleanser. A product like the Avinichi Noni Mousse Cleanser would be perfect. It forms a rich and satisfying lather without stripping the skin of its protective barrier, leaving you with a face that looks and feels refreshed and radiant.

Provide Antioxidants Internally and Externally

Antioxidants are everything when it comes to countering the visible effects of aging. These are the compounds that will fight the appearance of free radical damage, enabling them to do everything from smoothing away the look of wrinkles to tightening up the feeling of sagging skin.

Just like when it comes to hydrating your skin, antioxidants should be both eaten as well as applied topically. In terms of consuming antioxidants, fresh fruits and vegetables are among the best sources. Eat a rainbow of colors and you’ll be giving your body, as well as your skin, an array of different antioxidants.

Plant-derived ingredients come out on top once again when it comes to the topical use of antioxidants. Botanical extracts are brimming with them, so look for skincare products that provide an antioxidant buffet. The Hydrating Antioxidant Serum from the Avinichi Phyto Thermal Collection would be a fantastic choice. Featuring the likes of apple, hawthorn berries, lilac, and reishi mushroom, regular use of this serum will give you the younger-looking skin that you’re seeking.

Give Your Skin the Beauty Sleep It Needs

Many people underestimate the importance of beauty sleep, but this is essential if you want to prevent the appearance of aging as much as possible. After all, while you’re asleep each night, your skin cells work hard to heal and regenerate. If they’re not able to do this, time will take its toll even sooner, with cell function declining at a much faster rate. 

This means ensuring that you’re sleeping for roughly eight hours each night. This needs to be quality sleep – spending hours tossing and turning in the middle of the night doesn’t count! Cell production peaks during deep sleep, making quality just as important as quantity. 

To get even more out of your beauty sleep, make sure that you’re following a good nighttime skincare routine, rounding things off with a high-quality night cream. A hydrating, antioxidant-rich formula, such as the Avinichi Noni Night Repair Cream, will ensure that your skin cells feel supported and fortified as they go about their nightly tasks. You’ll wake up to skin that looks so much brighter, softer, and healthier!

Make the Most of Fast-Acting Topical Products

It’s easy to understand why so many are tempted by the instant allure of cosmetic anti-aging treatments. However, these aren’t the only way to immediately eradicate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles…

While most skincare products require weeks, if not months, to take effect, others, like the Avinichi Wrinkle Rewind Filler, produce much faster results. Thanks to its cutting-edge blend of ingredients, this product works in just seconds, softening the appearance of creases to leave you with a line-free complexion. 

Sure, the results that you’ll experience are temporary. However, products like these combined with the other tips that we have been sharing will enable you to gracefully tackle the visible skin aging process both immediately and in the long term.

Take Care of Your Mental Health

Do you often find yourself feeling stressed or anxious?

If so, this isn’t going to be doing your skin any favors. Each time you feel this way, your body releases a hormone called cortisol. This hormone affects the skin in several ways, one of which is triggering inflammation in the skin. This accelerates the skin aging process in a big way. Inflammation can also cause a number of other skin problems to arise, from acne to eczema. It’s never good news for your skin!

There’s a good chance that you also make certain facial expressions when you’re stressed or anxious. Whether this may be frowning, squinting, pursing your lips, or anything else, repeated facial movements will soon turn those temporary expression lines into permanent creases.

If you want to keep your skin, as well as your mind, feeling as healthy and youthful as possible, make an effort to manage your stress levels. Adopt a few stress reduction techniques that you can turn to whenever things start to feel too much and do what it takes to soothe your mind. Your skin will look much calmer and more balanced as a result!

Cut Out Those Bad Habits

Bad habits are always difficult to break. However, this becomes even more so as you age. The longer you’ve been carrying out a certain habit, the more willpower you’ll need to put a stop to it. 

However, use your skin as motivation. There’s a likelihood that most of your bad habits will be influencing your skin in some way. Smoking, for example, suffocates the skin and drastically accelerates aging. Meanwhile, excessive alcohol consumption does the same. It severely dehydrates the skin, with hydration being something that the skin requires more of as it grows older.

A lack of exercise is also detrimental. Keeping your body active will not only boost circulation, giving your skin a radiant glow, but it will benefit your immune system too. This, in turn, will give you skin that looks much healthier. Regularly exercising will also help you to sleep better while improving your mood and your mental health. As you know, both of these affect your skin too, so anything that can give them a boost is worth looking into!
