There are numerous serums and creams on shop shelves that promise you skin that can dazzle the world and iron out the wrinkles off your face like magic. Nothing can be further from the truth. Wrinkle reduction lotions and creams will definitely improve the appearance of the skin and lend it a glow, but they cannot eradicate the lines that have appeared around your eyes and mouth. These tend to be the deepest and they only get deeper over time.

– When Experience Counts: There are some basic preventive measures you can take to prolong the onset of wrinkles. No matter what you do, signs of ageing will eventually creep up on you, but luckily there are numerous skin treatments that can help in reducing signs of aging. There are numerous modern day skin treatments that can change the way your skin looks and give you a youthful look. However, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.

– Basics Of Skin Care: Stay out of the sun. Overexposure to the harmful UV rays can do irreversible harm to the delicate skin of your face. Apply a good Ph content sunscreen lotion whenever you are stepping out into the sun, including the winter months. Choose a good moisturising lotion and night cream. Avoid smoking and consuming too much alcohol. Excessive consumption of beverages and colas also damages the skin.

– Get enough of sleep. The skin rejuvenates itself while you sleep and is important for overall health as well. Apart from this, incorporate plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet. There are also numerous cosmetic treatments that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Chemical peels, Botox, light resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and wrinkle fillers are just some of the treatments that you can opt for when you want smoother skin.

– Cosmetic Treatments: If you are considering a cosmetic procedure to get rid of wrinkles, ensure that you do a bit of research about it first. Do not get impressed with reviews and fancy descriptions of the procedure. Consult a reliable dermatologist and understand what the procedure is and what its implications are. Not all wrinkle reduction treatments suit everyone and some people are also prone to allergic reactions. Apart from this, different skin types require different treatment. Some of these treatments may also require a longer recovery time. Keep all these factors in mind when you are choosing a doctor and the treatment that you are going to undergo. (By Juanita Swindell)
