How to reduce facial wrinkles

Having wrinkles on the face are sure signs of aging!

As women reached their prime, they try to find the best solutions on how to reduce facial wrinkles.

But, do you think that all fine lines and wrinkles are the same?

Not really!

According to scientists, there are actually five different types of wrinkles.

Understanding each type will help you better in finding the right treatment.

Here are the FIVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF WRINKLES AND MY RECOMMENDED TREATMENT ON EACH TYPE:

1. ELASTOTIC WRINKLES can be treated with GLYCOLIC ACID.

Sun exposure damages the fibers that keep skin firm and creates textured lines – or elastotic wrinkles – on cheeks, neck and upper lip. It is just like rubber bands loosing their ability to spring back. In this kind of wrinkle, the best treatment is the glycolic acid which exfoliates sun-damaged cells to reveal smoother skin.

Recommended Product: Glycolix Elite

2. GRAVITATIONAL WRINKLES can be treated with HYALURONIC ACID.

As we age, collagen is loss which causes skin to fold into “smile lines” that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and also “marionette lines” that run the sides of the chin. Fortunately, hydrating hyaluronic acid counters these wrinkles fast. It acts like a sponge, pulling in hydration to add volume to your skin., which eventually plumps wrinkles.

Recommended Product: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair

3. ATROPHIC WRINKLES can be treated with PEPTIDES.

Atropic wrinkles come from a breakdown of tissue structure as we age. They often appear between the eyebrows or on the neck. To help prevent this type of wrinkles, peptides will do the trick. These peptides spark collagen production, which helps rebuild damaged tissue structure and minimizes the look of atropic wrinkles.

4. COMPRESSION WRINKLES can be treated with SILK.

Sometimes when we wake up in the morning, you will notice some indentations on your face where your skin was pressed into your pillow. After sleeping like this nightly for years, permanent wrinkles can form. The good news is you can prevent those pesky lines by upgrading from a cotton case to silk or satin! Rather than gripping onto skin like cotton does, a silky fabric lets skin glide over it as you change positions, which then will minimize wrinkles!

5. EXPRESSION WRINKLES can be treated with RETINOL.

These types of wrinkles can form anywhere on your face as it changes when facial expressions are made. Repetitive motions like squinting and smiling can create deep fine lines, especially around the eyes and lips. The treatment recommended for this type of wrinkle is by using products with retinol. This is a Vitamin A- based anti-aging product which thickens skin from the inside out to fill in deep-set lines.

Recommended Product: Kleem Anti Aging Retinol Moisturizing Cream

Easy facial exercises to look younger

A daily facial massage can boost blood flow, revitalize collagen productions and minimize wrinkles of every type. Simply set your alarm for one minute, then place your ring and middle finger from each hand at the center of your chin. Quickly, but gently, tap out ward along the jawline until you reach your ears, then reverse until your fingers meet again on the chin. Move fingers up slightly and repeat until you have covered your entire face, avoiding eyelids but including lips, cheeks, nose and forehead.

My final thoughts,

In reducing fine lines and wrinkles, it is good to understand what kind of facial wrinkles you have. I have enumerated these several types and given you some product recommendations you may use. But for added precautions, these are products that i personally recommend, facial skin types also varies as this may cause you different results.

    Thanks for sharing this useful post!
    I never know that there are 5 different types of wrinkles! My sister is worry about few wrinkles that appear on her faces. I think your post will be helpful to her to control and relieve the situation. I will forward this article to her for better understanding about wrinkles. Thanks!

  6. Wrinkles….Eeekkkk!!!!   I really hope I do not have many of these. I am thirty and I can see the smile wrinkles forming. I barely started using anti wrinkle cream. My mom tells me… I told you ten years ago to start using them. :/  The ones I feel I will have the most and pray I don’t are the forehead ones because of repetitive movements. I always squint because of my vision…:(

  7. Wow, what a great piece. Wrinkles and fine lines are something that we would all experience as we grow older. I actually didn’t know that theses types of wrinkles had different names and also different  approaches to reducing them. So,this was quite informative for me. My question though is, owing to all the anti-aging wrinkle creams in the market being marketed as an all-in-one anti-aging cream, is it possible to have one cream that fixes it all or are those just for profit purposes? 

    1. Hi Vapz, thank you for leaving a comment.

      Well, i would say that all those all-in-one anti-aging cream would more ore less treat a certain type of wrinkles.  It is also possible, they made it is part of their marketing scheme.

      That is why, i wrote this article and share it in order to help those looking for treatment in fading their wrinkles.  You won`t be needing a whole lot of kinds of creams. You need to know what type of wrinkle you have and just look for that particular kind of product that will be helpful for you.

      All the best!

  8. Very informative. As an ‘getting older’ lady of 50 something I am always looking for more natural tips and tricks and appreciated that you put the facial massage treatment in the article. I do like that you explained the difference in wrinkles and how we get them, never really thought about it until now. With so many creams and such out there it’s difficult to know which one would suit best for my circumstance

    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Well I’m not female (I’m male!), but I found your article because a friend of mine pointed out wrinkles on my forehead the other day, and I’ve never really taken note of them before! 

    I’m 43 now so I suppose this kind of thing isn’t going to get any better! 

    I’m really interested in the natural daily massage for wrinkles that you mention, is it really that effective?

    1. Hi Chris, thank you for visiting my site and leaving a comment.

      I am really a great believer of the facial massage. I am already in my prime, and i always get complements that i look younger for my age. Well, i guess the facial massage works!

I know there are what we call wrinkle on the face but never for once do I have the idea that they have of different types.but before using any product one has to identify the type of wrinkles he want to solve the problem. I will like to ask like what age is advisable to use this product or can it be use immediately you start experience the signs of wrinkles in your face

    1. Hi ajibola40, thanks for reading my article.

      I think it is best to start using this products as soon as you seen signs of wrinkles.  You can do the facial massage to start with, if you want.
