Method 6: Staying Hydrated

hydrate your skin to reduce wrinkles

  • Drink at least 7 to 8 glasses of water every day.

As much as washing your face, drinking plenty of water is important for the skin, too.

Staying hydrated is one of the simplest yet most effective treatments for fighting wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and other signs of premature aging. One of the major causes of wrinkles and premature aging is lack of moisture in the skin.

Water not only keeps your skin hydrated but also helps maintain the elasticity and firmness of the skin.

Additional Tips

  • Wrap up an ice cube in a piece of cloth and dab it all over your skin every night before going to bed. This helps reduce wrinkles, especially around the chin and mouth area.
  • Massage is also an effective treatment to get rid of wrinkles and dark spots on the skin. It helps relax and soothe the facial muscles from making any unnecessary micro-movements that can lead to tension and stress that weakens the skin.
  • Alcohol and smoking contribute to breaking down collagen in the skin, thus causing wrinkles and fine lines. So when battling wrinkles, limit your consumption of tobacco and alcohol.
  • Stress makes your skin weak and thin, thus disabling its ability to fight elements that lead to wrinkles. To help manage your stress level, relax to music, enjoy a hobby, exercise, do yoga and meditation, read books or any other stress-buster activity of your choice.
  • Poor sleep leads to wrinkles. Get at least 6 hours of good sleep every night to help prevent wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Incorporate foods rich in vitamin C like berries, bell peppers, oranges, grapefruit, pineapple and spinach in your daily diet. Vitamin C encourages the formation of collagen and prevents free-radical damage and oxidative stress.
