Natural Remedies for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Skincare 101: Natural Remedies for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Let’s face it - none of us love our fine lines and wrinkles. While we may adore the process of aging and the wisdom and joy that it brings, we so often shy away from the changes that occur in our skin. As we age, our body’s natural processes begin to slow down, including collagen production, which in turn can lead to noticeable changes in our appearance. As our collagen production tapers down, the amount of collagen within our skin begins to follow suit, leading to more laxity and more noticeable fine lines and wrinkles.

And while many of us may run straight to the dermatologist or beauty counter at the local department store to counterbalance these changes, there are actually plenty of ways that you can fight back against fine lines and wrinkles from the comfort of your own home. While medical remedies are always popular and mostly effective, there are many natural remedies that you can reach for to lessen the visible signs of fine lines and wrinkles.

If you’re thinking about jumping into natural remedies to treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles but are not sure where to get started, we’re happy to help. We’ve broken down some of our favorite tried-and-true natural methods to treating fine lines and wrinkles below. Keep reading to discover more and find your next weapon to add to your anti-wrinkle skincare arsenal.

Cut Back on the Sugar

We’ll start things off with something simple - cutting back on sugar. When you consume sugar, this contributes to a process called ‘glycation.’ Glycation has been directly linked to age-related collagen breakdown in the skin, increasing the speed of the breakdown process and causing more visible fine lines and wrinkles. By cutting back on your sugar intake, you can effectively keep this process at a minimum.

Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen!

Not quite as natural as some of our remedies, sunscreen is always at the top of our list in treating and preventing fine lines and wrinkles. This crucial product plays a central role in the health and appearance of our skin, preventing damage that can occur from harmful UV rays and protecting against oxidative stress. Make sure that you are applying sunscreen each and every day before heading outside, even if it’s cloudy or overcast.

Keep Up with Washing Your Face

We’ve all been there - so exhausted at the end of a long day that we just hop straight into bed when we get home. But if you sleep with makeup still applied, this can have a direct negative effect on your skin due to oxidative stress from the chemicals in the makeup. Even if you wear clean, natural makeup, this can still be detrimental to the health and appearance of your skin. No matter how tired you’re feeling, always take the extra couple of minutes to wash your face with a soothing cleanser, like our exfoliating Skin Polish, before you get to sleep.

Take a Look at How You Sleep

Did you know that the position in which you sleep can directly affect the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? When you sleep on your side or your stomach, your face will be pressing up against the pillow in a particular way each and every night. This, in turn, will create skin that is weaker in those areas, causing an increase in visible wrinkles. By switching things up and sleeping on your back, you can prevent problemsome compression and keep your complexion smooth.

Test Out a Facial Massage or Facial Yoga

A newer trend in the health and wellness community, facial massages and facial yoga have been quickly growing in popularity as a natural method of fighting back against fine lines and wrinkles. If you are interested in adding this process to your daily routine, we’d recommend heading over to our deep-dive article HERE that showcases some of our favorite exercises and techniques for facial massage and facial yoga.

Swap Out Your Pillowcase

We’re heading back to your bedroom for the next natural remedy to take a closer look at your pillowcase. While you may have a favorite cozy and comfy pillowcase that you sleep with regularly, swapping it out for either a silk pillowcase or copper-oxide pillowcase can help benefit your skin. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and is less abrasive on your skin (and hair!). Copper-oxide offers anti-aging skincare benefits without any additional products needed.

Bump Up Your Intake of Healthy Fats

Now we’ll take things back to your diet and chat about healthy fats. While fats were once something that we were told to avoid like a plague, they are now being touted as an essential to maintaining overall health and wellbeing. By eating the right balance of healthy fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids found in nuts and oily fish, you can help boost and maintain the balance of oil and hydration within your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Say No to Smoking

We’ll say it once, we’ll say it a hundred times - now is the time to quit smoking if you haven’t already. Smoking has a direct correlation with premature aging within the body, with visible effects seen in the skin. Long-term or continued smoking can cause skin dehydration and dampen collagen production, leading to more prominent fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face and the rest of the body.

When it comes to fighting back against the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, don’t worry about rushing out to the doctor or beauty counter at your favorite department store. There are plenty of natural remedies that you can implement from the comfort of your own home. From taking a closer look at your diet to considering how you sleep to simply washing your face.
