Here’s How You Can Beat Those Unwanted Wrinkles!
So what do we do when our skin starts to age? The reality is we cannot avoid the aging process. But, yes we can minimize the onset of wrinkles.
What causes wrinkles?
Our skin is made up of two layers: the epidermis (outer layer) and the dermis (below the epidermis). Wrinkles occur in the dermis. The dermis is formed of collagen and other proteins. As we start to age, the collagen levels go down in our bodies. It is the collagen that makes our skin supple and soft. Drop in collagen levels lead to saggy skin and thus wrinkles are formed on the skin. Lots of reasons add to the process of drop in collagen levels. Here are some for your reference:
- Sun damage
- Poor nutrition
- Pollution and toxins
- Sleeping on your side
Let’s look at a few ways we can slow down the aging process
Avoid Smoking to avoid premature aging of the skin
Experts have always warned against the side-effects of smoking, one of the main reasons being that it is responsible for premature aging of the skin. It has proven that the skin of smokers ages faster than that of non-smokers. The skin tends to get thinner and leads to more creases and lines. Also around the lips, smokers tend to get deep grooves and fine lines. Smoking tends to disturb the skin’s natural collagen which makes the skin loose its elasticity. Cigarette smoking is one of the main reasons that causes skin to look old and sallow.
Use Sunscreen for UV rays protection
If you do step out in the the sun always wear sunscreen even if it is winter. It is never too late to start wearing sunscreen every day. We know UV exposure is the main reason behind early skin ageing, and remember, even on gloomy days up to 80% of the sun's damaging UV rays can reach your skin. Kaya’s Daily Moisturizing Sunscreen +SPF30 not only protects your skin from harmful UV-A and UV-B rays, but also helps maintain essential hydration and nourishment for long.

Wear Sunglasses when exposed to harsh rays
Excessive squinting of eyes can overwork your facial muscles leading to lines and grooves on your face. As a result, wrinkles are formed. Best way to combat this problem is by wearing sunglasses when exposed to the harsh rays of the sun when you step out in the sun.
Sleep on your back to avoid sleep lines
Do not ever skip a good night sleep and ensure you sleep on your back. If you sleep on your sides or on your stomach every night you can get sleep lines impressed into your face which will take time to go. Over a period these lines can become a long-lasting facial fixture. You can use silk sheets and pillow cover cases to lessen the effect.
Moisturise well to decrease fines lines & wrinkles
Even a plain moisturiser free from extraordinary ingredients will decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin will look plumper rather than dry and dull. Try one with a built in sunscreen. Kaya’s Nourishing Day Cream with Triple Action Benefits has Anti-Oxidant Vit-C which helps fight free radicals and improve skin texture.
