Once women get past 30, for many of them, it becomes a constant battle to keep off those fine lines, folds, and creases in their faces.

Are you too struggling with wrinkles, and have bought creams and serums to smoothen the creases? However, no matter how hard you try, you will still see a few lines.

Despite many quotes and legends about laugh lines and crinkles that show maturity and intelligence, they are eventually considered signs of aging.

Wrinkles may happen in the following areas:

Laugh lines:

These lines create folds around the upper lip, and are also known as “nasolabial folds”;

Forehead lines: 

They usually show up horizontally across the forehead;

Marionette lines: 

Marionette lines occur when the cheeks droop by forming jowl wrinkles;

Lip lines: 

Form vertically around the mouth;

Worry lines: 

They create lines between the eyebrows;


Show up horizontally at the bridge of the nose, between the eyes;

Crow’s feet: 

Wrinkles that happen at the outer corners of the eyes.

Dynamic and Static Wrinkles

The wrinkles or folds that show the visible signs of aging on your faces have two categories: dynamic and static.

Dynamic wrinkles: 

These wrinkles develop due to frequent or repetitive facial movements. For example, if you tend to pucker your lips around a straw, you may get lip lines.

Static wrinkles: 

Static wrinkles occur due to a loss of elasticity. For example, lines that develop jowls are static.

Dynamic wrinkles can turn into static wrinkles over time. When women’s cheeks lose plumpness and become a little saggy, the subtle smile lines look more prominent.

How to Prevent Wrinkles

The fines lines and folds that may eventually show up on your face will depend on various factors, including genetic reason and lifestyle. Although we cannot do anything about our genes, we can change our lifestyle to minimize skin damage. Here are four ways to prevent wrinkles:

1. Follow a healthy lifestyle

Healthy lifestyle choices have a huge role to play when it comes to your skin condition. You cannot have frequent night outs and expect to have glowing skin.

Also, regular smoking and drinking take their toll on the skin. Making healthy lifestyle choices can often be difficult, but the returns you get are worth the effort.

Make the following the choices to have a wrinkle-free skin:

Eat healthy meals

Minimize sugar consumption

Take care of proper hydration

Avoid or minimize alcohol consumption

Do not smoke

Workout at least a few times a week

Take enough rest

Avoid stress.

Making these changes are likely to slow down the aging of your skin, or may even reverse the visible signs of aging.

2. Adjust habits that cause creases

Did you know that certain body motions might cause wrinkles? Making a few changes in your movements can help you have smoother skin.

For example, while sitting at your desk, if you lean forward and rest your face in your hands or lay on your stomach, they can create creases in your skin. Instead, lying on your back is a better position to prevent wrinkles.

3. Protect Your Skin from UV Rays

That bright and beautiful sun in the morning, which turns into a raging ball of fire, can wreak havoc on your skin.

Although, due to intermittent lockdowns, you may have been working from home, still do not forget to use a sunscreen with high SPF 35 or higher whenever you step out.

Besides, use a hat or cap during summer as part of your everyday outfit and sporting gear, along with shades to protect your skin from UV rays. You can also use an antioxidant serum like vitamin C for the daily repair of your skin damage.

4. Use products according to your skin type and condition

When life becomes hectic, we often do not get enough sleep and feel stressed. All these take a toll on the skin, and wrinkles are not far from cropping up.

This is why following a skincare routine by taking out some time from your tight schedule, will keep your skin in good condition:

If your face is getting saggy, use vitamin C and Retinoid to fight off wrinkles.

If there is no sign of creases yet, that is excellent news! To keep your skin that way, use Rosehip oil. It can work as a moisturizer, antioxidant, collagen producer, and brightener.

If your skin feels a little dry with age, apply a skin product containing hyaluronic acid, which will keep your skin plump by moisturizing and boosting elasticity.

Shea butter is a weapon against wrinkles. Its properties can repair damage from oxidative stress and smoothens the fine lines.
