How to prevent and reduce wrinkles?

The first step to avoid and reduce wrinkles is to understand what they are and how they are formed over time. 

Wrinkles are lines, folds or creases in the skin and are seen as one of the first signs of skin aging. This intrinsic and extrinsic aging is predominantly visible on the skin of the face. 

Intrinsic aging is a natural, genetic process of skin aging that results from slow tissue degeneration. The extrinsic, on the other hand, is caused by several external factors, ranging from exposure to the sun to the levels of pollution to which our skin is exposed. Both are responsible for the appearance of wrinkles, since the first appears naturally and the second is responsible for its evolution. 

The first signs of the appearance of wrinkles are visible through small creases that evolve, over time and lack of care, to deep lines. It is natural for our skin to age and lose elasticity as time passes. It is, therefore, essential to reinforce and redouble early protective care, hydration and skin regeneration.

WHAT DIFFERENT TYPES OF WRINKLES?

There are different types of wrinkles and for this reason it is important to know them in order to know how to mitigate their appearance. As we age, the skin becomes thinner and loses its natural elasticity. These conditions reduce the skin's self-protection ability. Among the most common, we have the expression lines, physiological, metabolic and photoinduced:

  • Expression wrinkles: probably the best known. As the name implies, they originate from repeatedly making the same expressions. They can start to be more visible from the age of 30 and we can find this type of wrinkles in the forehead area, around the eyes and close to the nasal zones and the mouth.
  • Physiological wrinkles: result from the physiological aging of the skin with implications for the dermis and epidermis. At the dermal level, one of the most important reactions is the reduction of collagen.
  • Metabolic wrinkles: they are the ones that occur due to chemical reactions of our own organism. The production of excess free radicals, for example, in addition to being harmful to health can lead to premature skin aging.
  • Photoinduced wrinkles: sun exposure is a major cause of premature skin aging. When there is an excessive exposure to UV rays that exceeds the limits of DNA repair, it favors the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging such as spots and sagging. 

Now that we know the most common types of wrinkles, the next step is to understand how we can reduce and mitigate their appearance. It is important to know the texture of the product you should use and this choice varies depending on your skin type. Cream, gel and serum correspond to different textures that anti-wrinkle products have. But do you know which one is best for your skin? 

For dry or extremely dry skin, the texture of the cream is the most suitable since it has a higher density and concentration of components that help to hydrate the skin. For mixed and / or oily skins, the gel, with an oil-free formula, helps to refresh and control excess sebum. This is a texture suitable for all skin types, from normal to the most sensitive. It consists of ingredients that penetrate quickly without creating or reinforcing unwanted layers of fat. An important tip is to use the serum before any cream, as this will accelerate the protection, hydration and rejuvenation of the skin.  

What are the main ingredients that must be present in the composition of anti-wrinkle products?

We know that the appearance of wrinkles is motivated by intrinsic and extrinsic factors. However, there are ingredients present in anti-wrinkle products that help to smooth and reduce wrinkles such as:

  • Collagen: our body's natural production of this protein is less as we get older. It helps to reinforce the elasticity and resistance of the skin and, for this reason, it is a common ingredient in this type of products.
  • Coenzyme Q10: a substance that helps the rapid regeneration of cells and improves the elasticity and resistance of the skin. Its high antioxidant power makes this substance an ally of weight in the reduction of existing wrinkles. 
  • Retinol: this active ingredient is responsible for smoothing out wrinkles and stimulating cell regeneration. Helps to reverse the effects of photoaging on the skin and to restore elasticity. 
  • Hyaluronic acid: reinforces collagen production and skin healing.
  • Solar protection: we saw earlier that sun exposure is one of the extrinsic factors that accelerates skin aging. It is therefore important to reinforce protection against UV rays and include the use of sunscreen in your skin care routine.

The daily care you must maintain with your skin helps not only to protect and rejuvenate, but to keep it healthier and consequently to mitigate the early appearance of undesirable wrinkles. In one of the main components of our products, CBD, it finds properties that help to keep the skin healthier, younger and hydrated.

This is a component with antioxidant properties, which works with the endocannabinoid system to eliminate free radicals from the cells that cause aging. In addition to a powerful moisturizer for all skin types. Canzon's range of Anti-Aging Creams with CBD also contains two ingredients, hyaluronic acid and retinol, widely known for maintaining skin hydration and filling cells for a more youthful, healthy and radiant appearance. Don't forget, however, that we always advise you to consult a specialist doctor when it comes to skin care.
