As beauty editors, we’re constantly learning about innovative services available to help prevent wrinkles and even banish them once they’ve arrived. We love learning about what works and sharing them with you. But as these can often be expensive, tedious, and invasive, we're taking a step back for a minute in order to share some much simpler solutions that still work. They also don't cost a fortune. Keep scrolling for five daily rituals that will minimize the unwelcome appearance of wrinkles in your life.
Protect the delicate area around your eyes from additional sun exposure by wearing sunglasses when outdoors. Make sure to look for 100% UV protection, and remember, the bigger the frame, the more coverage you are getting.
Sipping any beverage through a straw causes you to purse your lips and crinkle the skin around your lips. If you are starting to see lip lines or just want to be cautious, maybe limit the use of straws.
The No. 1 thing you can do for your skin is to stay hydrated on the inside and out. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day, and maybe even limit dehydrating beverages like caffeine. For an instant skin refresh, spritz a little rose water on your face in the morning and at night.
At-home facial massages have been one of the best new rituals we picked up in 2015. The motion stimulates blood circulation and expels toxins from your skin, leaving you with fewer fine lines and a natural glow. For your convenience, we’ve created a handy three-minute tutorial.
Never underestimate the healing properties of a night serum. Let your skin repair itself while you sleep by applying a glycolic-based formula. Drunk Elephant’s resurfacing formula visibly improves dull or uneven skin tone. By sloughing off dead skin and toxins, you minimize the likelihood of wrinkles and the appearance of any preexisting fine lines.
