Forehead wrinkles can start to appear around the age of 30, especially in people who, throughout their lives, have been exposed to the sun a lot without protection, have lived in places with pollution or have neglected to eat.
Despite this, there are several ways to mitigate these wrinkles, through food, the use of appropriate cosmetics, massages, aesthetic treatments or even disguise them with makeup.
What products to use
The products that must be used to fight wrinkles must contain hyaluronic acid, resveratrol, retinol, vitamin C and / or vitamin E, which have an anti-oxidant action and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin.
The ideal is to cleanse the face and apply a serum before the daily cream, since this product has greater power to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin in addition to enhancing the absorption of the cream. In addition, it is important to complement this treatment with an eye cream, which is better adapted for use in the eye region, which has thinner and more sensitive skin.
It is also important to apply sun protection daily, as exposure to the sun accelerates skin aging.
How should the food be
Some examples of foods that can help prevent the appearance of wrinkles on the skin are orange, lemon, kiwi, mandarin and other citrus fruits, because they contain vitamin C, which contributes to the production of collagen, which helps maintain firmness and filling skin, and green tea, red fruits, pineapple and strawberries, which contain anti-oxidants, important to prevent premature aging.
Foods rich in magnesium, selenium and zinc, also contribute to a firmer skin, because they protect cells against aggression by free radicals, prevent sagging tissues and favor cell renewal. Examples of foods with these minerals are nuts, corn, carrots, whole grains, Brazil nuts, red meat, seaweed and oysters, for example.
The treatments that can be performed in beauty clinics to reduce wrinkles are:
- Radiofrequency: it is a procedure that uses a small equipment that slides across the face generating heat to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin and improve its tone;
- Carboxitherapy: it is done with the application of small injections containing CO2, to stimulate oxygenation and the elimination of toxins through the skin, making it more rejuvenated and firmer;
- Chemical peeling: it is done with the application of acids on the face, which remove the most superficial and medium layer of the skin, stimulating the production of a new firm and resistant layer;
- Mesolift or Mesotherapy: performed through multiple micro injections into the skin with rejuvenating substances, such as vitamins A, E, C, B or K and hyaluronic acid, which hydrate and regenerate the skin;
- Laser or pulsed light: these are procedures done by a device that emit light and heat, improving the texture of the skin and removing wrinkles;
- Micro needling: for the stimulation of collagen production, a small device full of micro needles is used that slide across the face, making small holes, so that the body itself, when dealing with skin regeneration, forms a new, firmer layer.
- Iontophoresis: It consists of the application of a small plate directly on the wrinkle that you want to eliminate containing substances such as hyaluronic acid, hexosamine or alkaline phosphatase, for example, to promote the deeper penetration of these substances, increasing the production of new collagen cells that support the skin, eliminating the wrinkle being treated;
- Russian current: small electrodes placed on the face that lead to increased blood circulation and muscle tone, fighting sagging and wrinkles.
These aesthetic treatments can begin to be carried out as soon as the first wrinkles appear, around 30 – 35 years of age.
