Supporting beauty of all types and ages is something we strongly stand for. And, while we believe fine lines can show as much beauty as the round-cheeked looks of youth, too often wrinkles appear earlier than expected, or they become too severe, stealing the vitality of our faces.
Though eventually, we’re going to get, well, a few lines and wrinkles, it’s important to have accurate information about them, the type we might get, their causes, and, of course, how we can slow them. If you’re looking for useful info, continue reading, and we promise you’ll leave this page ready to make a change that will show on your face.
Age & Gravity Wrinkles
As you age, collagen production decreases, and cells divide more slowly, so the inner layer of your skin thins, becoming prone to a loss of elasticity and damage. Adding the downward pull of gravity to these issues, in addition to fine lines, wrinkles, and creases, you will also notice folds of skin we call gravitational folds. If you’re not there yet and can’t imagine how these might look, think of the nasolabial fold, created by all those years of smiling, or the marionette lines, appearing from the outer corners of the lips to the outer corners of the chin.
Unfortunately, unless you are the fortunate owner of a youth fountain, you can’t do anything to stop aging or reverse gravity. You can, however, prevent and reduce both folds and wrinkles appearance.
Slow down the loss of collagen by regularly moisturizing, eating healthy foods, staying hydrated, getting adequate sleep, and always, no matter the season, wearing sunscreen. And don’t forget to add high-quality products that prevent and treat wrinkles to your beauty routine. Your best choices are skin products rich in DNA-repairing enzymes, antioxidants, and peptides, as well as smoothing face patches or neck and chest pads.
Did you know that the sun alters the collagen balance and decreases its production? There is no wonder that 80 percent of skin aging visible changes are because of the sun. Yes, when you get sunburns, your skin might suffer long-term damage, and this includes wrinkles.
So, if you can’t wait for those long summer days at the beach, you should think twice before you spend too many hours in the sun. We are not saying you should move to Alaska or stay inside for the whole summer, but you can’t ignore the proven fact that overexposure to the sun breaks down the skin’s underlying structure, affecting its healthy appearance.
If you want to prevent premature photo-aging and have healthier, smoother skin, limiting sun exposure is your best option. And, when you have to be outside, or you want to indulge in a well-deserved summer holiday, make sure you always use products containing an SPF of 30 or more with UVA, UVB, and IRA protection. Also, just as with age and gravity wrinkles, premium skin products are not an option but a necessity.
Did you know your skin has a memory? Its cells track every squint, frown, and smile! In time, the facial muscular movements' systematic repetition leads to the formation of expression lines. In the beginning, these wrinkles are just temporary, and you only notice them when you are making facial expressions, but over the years, they become permanent.
Whether they are crow's feet, bunny lines, horizontal lines on your forehead, or smile lines, you will notice them, and they will begin to annoy you.
You can’t stop yourself from smiling or laughing! But, you can notice your daily expressions and try to change some of the bad habits. You can also treat them with at-home wrinkle reduction products like the Blumbody face patches. You can use them when you are at your desk, doing your daily chores, watching your favorite TV shows, or whenever you want. And they work miracles!
Also known as “sleep wrinkles,” compression wrinkles appear when your face is squished up against something for a long time, like pillows. But they don’t only occur on your face, but also your chest if, for instance, you are a side sleeper.
The way you sleep not only brings you wrinkles, but it can also lead to biomechanical changes in the face. So, while beauty sleep is important, you might need to change the way you rest.
You can become a back-sleeper instead of on your stomach or side, as both enhance the appearance of lines. There are also specially designed pillows and pillowcases that can help you reduce compression wrinkles.
However, one of the best ways to deal with this problem is by wearing Blumbody smoothing pads and patches. They improve irregular collagen structure and create an increased blood flow, repairing and rejuvenating your skin, all while you sleep. They are also easy to apply and very comfortable, allowing you to have a worry-free beauty sleep.
There is no better noninvasive way to treat your wrinkles and prevent new ones. And, don’t forget that the smoothing pads and patches do miracles not only for compression wrinkles, but also for those caused by facial expressions, sun damage, or aging!
