Wrinkles, one of the first horror signs of aging! How they start digging into your flawless skin!

Tons of anti-aging cosmetic solutions are available in the market but none really effective! Their benefits are also no better than the false fairness promises of the widely promoted fairness creams! A much more effective and economical solution is to fight the look of aging and get younger looking skin from the inside!

Before you begin the anti-wrinkle fight, you need to understand that wrinkles are a result of the breakdown of collagen and elastic fibres in the dermis layer of the skin. This is way below any cells that are getting sloughed off of the epidermis during resurfacing by chemicals. And it will take a mighty powerful lotion to absorb that deep down.

Be sun safe.
Sadly, most of the damage the sun did to your skin probably happened about ten or twenty years ago. So, start using sun protection now. The best sun protection is no sun, so wear hats, sunglasses or scarf whenever you expect to be exposed to the sun, even in the winter.

Balanced Diet
Maintain a healthy diet with a variety of proteins and lots of juicy fruits and fibre vegetables.

You can actually reduce those tension lines between your eyebrows if you consciously decide to do so. Remind yourself to do it regularly; scrunching up your eyebrows is a habit that can be unlearned! And your happy and relaxed face will also take care of the other wrinkle lines of your face!

Facial exercises
Building muscle tone and increasing circulation is the best way to address the underlying skin tissue where wrinkles originate. There are lots of books that demonstrate facial exercises. You can even consult a facial expert. Use a mirror and be consistent in your exercise program. Dont expect instant results; muscles take about six weeks to respond to new exercises.

All these solutions affect your skin internally they might not show instant results, but they are making your skin grow young naturally!
