Preventing Wrinkles #BlogchatterHalfMarathon

Who says wrinkles is an old age thing? Who says you should not become aware about wrinkles and their causes right at the age when you first admire your beautiful skin? Of course, that would be quite young age. Well, that is the right age to start taking care of your skin not for a short term but for a long term, that is, for your older age when actually wrinkles occur. Some people's skin keep young, tight, and glowing even while growing older. That's because they kept the equation intact. Their skin cells getting damaged always stayed lower in comparison to the proper supply of nourishment to the cells and new cells growth.

Actually, it's all about balancing of your finances. It's similar to your bank account. Your bank balance should always be positive. Your expenses should always be lower than your income.

It's a myth to stay in shade/ Prevent direct Sunlight. That's wrong. Lack of vitamin D is prone to cause worse effects on health. Don't shy away from sunlight. But equip your skin well with protecting creams to keep it safe. Depending on the time you plan to spend under the sun, know well about the SPF cream you are applying about its effective duration. So, if it's effective for 2 hours, re-apply it every 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Tighter the skin, better it is. Tightness of skin comes with the help of collagen. Collagen is a binding agent to keep our bones, ligaments, and tissues intact. As long as this binding is intact, the skin stays tighter, younger, and vibrant. The production of collagen starts decreasing with age. The reason is very simple. When we are young, cells are mostly busy in production as there is least requirements for maintenance. But that demand from body for maintenance starts increasing with the age. That makes cells efforts divided in the two areas thus causing decrease in production.

"Nobody was perfect. Not even close. And everybody had wrinkles from smiling and squinting and craining their necks. Everybody has marks on their bodies from years of living- a trail of life left on them. Evidence of all the adventures and sleepless nights and practical jokes and heartbreaks that had made them who they are."-Katherine Center

Smoking and Drinking always have adverse effect on skin and other body parts. You will wonder then how some people are able to keep their skin beautiful despite smoking and drinking.

In the long term there will always be adverse effects on skin even if you stop smoking and drinking later. Of course, the compensation is high on both the cases.

"Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away. "-Douglas MacArthur
