The appearance of wrinkles with age is inevitable - it's a normal natural process and there's nothing wrong with that. However, it is possible to reduce their number and delay the onset of age-related skin changes, dermatologists say.

According to experts, the right habits and a well-designed daily care routine will help keep the skin supple longer and slow down the process of wrinkle formation. OBOZ.UA tells you more about these tips.

Start with proper cleansing

With age, the skin's ability to get rid of dead cells and produce new ones decreases and regeneration processes slow down. Proper cleansing can help with this. Don't skip the washing and regular exfoliation steps, and choose products that are tailored to your skin type and needs. Keeping your skin clean helps prevent premature aging caused by environmental pollution and free radicals.

Include vitamin C in your skincare routine

Vitamin C is a beneficial ingredient in any skincare product. It has a powerful antioxidant effect and can repair damage that has already been done to some extent. Products with vitamin C help the skin resist free radicals that destroy collagen, the elasticity protein. They also remove age spots and maintain elasticity.

Don't forget about sun protection

Your makeup bag should always have a broad-spectrum sunscreen that can withstand UVB and UVA rays at the same time. These types of UV radiation cause sunburn and contribute to skin cancer, so it's important to protect yourself from them. In addition, using a cream with SPF slows down photoaging, the age-related changes in the skin caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Some studies show that sun protection can slow it down by up to 24%. But to do this, you need to use sunscreen constantly.

Adjust your drinking regimen

Keeping your skin supple and smooth is impossible without enough water in your cells. Water also promotes healthy blood circulation, which helps cleanse and therefore rejuvenate the body's tissues. Drinking enough fluids also protects the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals that can cause premature aging.

Take care of quality sleep

Sleep itself is a process during which our body recovers. Blood flow to the tissues increases, which leads to the production of more collagen and growth hormones. That's why getting enough sleep is very important for maintaining healthy and youthful skin. Make sure you have a comfortable pillow, that the bedroom is dark and quiet, and sleep for 7-8 hours a day.
