When we are born, we have many furrows on the skin’s surface that are invisible to the naked eye because they are too small. These furrows, which form squares on the skin, ensure its firmness and elasticity. Over time, the furrows become more and more apparent and become what we know as lines and wrinkles.
As you grow older, the skin’s subcutaneous fat slowly diminishes. The skin becomes thinner and repetitive movements from muscles create deeper furrows that become wrinkles. Factors, including the natural aging process, which is linked to hormones and genes, pollution, lack of sleep, smoking and alcohol all cause wrinkles. However, the main cause of wrinkles is, without a doubt, the sun. Ironically, the sun has an ability to boost your vitamin D levels, which is very beneficial for your skin. The areas of skin around your eyes and lips and well as fair-skinned people are particularly vulnerable to the sun’s rays.
Several aesthetic medicine techniques can be used to eliminate or minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles, such as collagen injections as well as laser, pulsed light and facial thread treatments. Several anti-wrinkle products are also available in drugstores. However, aesthetic treatments can be very expensive and risky. Anti-wrinkle products in drugstores often contain ingredients that should be avoided in skincare.
If you are looking to avoid or slow down the appearance of wrinkles, the best preventative measure is to limit your exposure to the sun!
Because emu oil has moisturizing, healing and regenerating properties, it is an excellent natural product to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Hypoallergenic, emu oil can be applied around the eye and lip areas. Non-comedogenic and considered a drying oil, emu oil quickly penetrates the skin and does not leave it greasy. Using a natural facial cream that is made from emu oil is a great way to fight wrinkles!
