How to Slow Down the Aging Process By Preventing Earliy Wrinkles

Anyone that is already having a big problem with having too many unwanted wrinkles knows how depressing it can be from day to day, trying to figure out why in the world you were the one blessed with something so unattractive. It should not be something that you consume yourself with thinking about, but we should all be a little concerned with how our appearance holds up. There are different things that people can do to try and look and feel much younger than they really are, because the fact is, too many of us that are still young, are really starting to look much older and there are plenty of reasons as to why this is happening and some of those reasons are things that we can not do anything about.

Other factors that play a big role in this department though can be changed, with a little effort on your part and if you would just be more conscious about what you put into your body and how you treat your body each and every day of your life. In this article I want you to learn a little more about how you can look younger by helping to prevent wrinkles. You know that when you were younger and your mom or dad preached at you, telling you to eat your vegetables, well, they were right you know. If you could eat healthier there are just so many amazing benefits, including things that can help to prevent you from getting all of those wrinkles. Eating a healthier diet can improve your overall health as well as your skin. Foods that are rich in antioxidants are very good for your skin because they help with fighting against the whole aging process by slowing down the oxidation process which plays the part in making all of those wrinkles stand out even more and make them become much more noticeable over a period of time. The dark green vegetables are absolutely the best vegetables out there that you should be eating atl east once a day if at all possible, they might not be the most flavorful foods for you but your body and skin will surely benefit from it.

Also, remember to try and drink green tea because it is just as good for you as those vegetables are and will definitely improve the appearance of your skin by reducing and preventing wrinkles. Exercise and eating healthy combined are actually proven to actually begin slowing down the whole aging process, just that itself should be enough reason for all of us to really consider starting to implement this into our daily lives. Of course if you mistreat your body there could be many different things to go wrong but something else that will happen is that your body will begin getting wrinkles earlier than normal and you speed up the aging process. So, overall, just be more alert about what you are doing with your life and try and make some changes that will benefit you instead of hurting you, sure you can stop those wrinkles today.

I personally have noticed tons of skin damage from the sun, including early wrinkles. But I'd rather be warm and in the sun than cold any day! SO bring on the wrinkles!

I agree with EVERYTHING Austinjo says. I would just like to add one more thing - use cocoa butter for your skin and drink more water! I have recently done the Flat Belly Diet which had the side effect of improving my skin because of all the good nutrients and extra water I drink now.

I also agree with you yogahoneybunny - bring on the sun (and the sunscreen SPV15) followed by a slathering of cocoa butter - my skin is tan and smooth from the golf and swimming and gardening - all good -- yes -- that other thing - EXERCISE!

Yes, the sun is the ONLY way we can get Vitamin K. Also ex foliate the skin when it's dry. If we think of the skin as an organ of the body, we should pay it more attention!
