First Wrinkles – How to Treat Your Skin
The first sign of wrinkles is a time to take notice that you need to take care of your skin. Through adherence to a proper skin care regime, you can help to preserve your skin, improve your skin as it is and ward off the signs of aging.
Causes and Treatments for Aging Skin
One of the biggest contributors to the aging process of the skin is to to free radical damage both from outside sources as well as internal sources.

The results of over exposure to the sun are characterized by wrinkled, dry and hyper pigmented skin. Ensure that you use a daily sunscreen and wear a hat if necessary to protect the skin.
Using a daily microdermabrasion substance will help the skin turnover rate to be increased, however it is even more important for you to use a sunscreen as the skin is delicate and more sensitive to the sun after it has been exfoliated.
The condition of the skin is also determined by the diet that is consumed. Free radical production can be greatly decreased if healthy foods which are abundant in antioxidents are consumed. Try to eat a well-balanced diet and ensure that a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals are consumed. Aging skin is generally lower in moisture and needs daily moisture added to it, in order for it to remain healthy and vibrant.
As we age the natural oil producing glands are not as active and therefore the skin is drier. The climate that one lives in can also have a dramatic effect on the moisture content of the skin.
