Who doesn’t want to look young forever?
There is hardly anyone who likes wrinkles on the face. But change is the rule of the world and with increasing age, wrinkles start appearing on the face sooner or later. But with easy anti-ageing measures, increasing wrinkles can be reduced.
But many of the remedies for anti-ageing are also misleading. People think about these measures, they will be effective but they have no scientific basis. There is also a possibility of damaging the skin at times instead of benefiting from following the wrong methods.
To know about the top 5 myths related to anti-ageing and their truth, I have spoken to Dr Dermalologist Dr Simal Soin. Dr Soin, while giving a scientific explanation of anti-ageing, has told me the truth of anti-ageing myths.
What are Wrinkles?
Wrinkles are actually the layers that fall into the skin. Generally, they appear when we start ageing. Mostly the first wrinkles appear on the face. After this, these scars can also be seen on those parts of the body which are more exposed to the sun, such as the face, throat, the skin behind the hands and the arms.
Causes of Wrinkles on the Face
The effect of wrinkles and old age is first seen on the face. According to Mayo Clinic, every time a person uses facial muscles to smile, speak or eat, etc., a bulge forms under the skin layer.
When a person is young, the skin returns to its old state. But as the age increases, the skin loses its flexibility. The time it takes for the skin to return to its old condition increases, due to which these layers of skin gradually become permanent. These are called wrinkles.
Some people may also have wrinkles due to sun damage, smoking or smoking, drinking less water, consuming certain medicines, weather and genetic reasons.
Which people have More skin Wrinkles
Those who stay in the sun for too long may have more problems than skin wrinkles or wrinkles. Ultraviolet rays of the sun damage the collagen and elastin fibres present in the skin.
Elastin fibres form the tissue that connects the skin. These are present below the skin surface to support the skin. The skin becomes weak and less flexible due to the breaking of the layer of fibres. Gradually, the skin starts to loosen and wrinkles begin to emerge.
5 anti-ageing Myths
Myth 1: Anti-aging creams heal fine lines
Anti-ageing creams contain retinol which can make the skin smooth, shiny and strong but cannot reverse wrinkles or fine lines. These creams have USP prevention.
They help protect your skin from free radicals and environmental damage such as UV damage or pollution. This causes premature wrinkles on the face. But after wrinkles, they cannot bring the skin to a chronic condition. These wrinkles may not bring the skin to a chronic condition.
Myth 2: Anti-ageing products are only for people above 30 years of age
The ageing process in the skin starts at the age of 20 years. As you get older, your skin also improves. You have to nourish your skin with the right nutrients throughout life.
In the beginning, you should know the type of skin you are allergic to and what ingredients suit you the most and then buy anti-ageing products accordingly.
Myth 3: Peptides and other skincare ingredients work like Botox
No other product or material in the world works like Botox treatment or any other cosmetic procedure. Especially when it is being done by beauty or esthetic expert.
Peptides are good for your skin and you can use these products that contain peptides as a material. But you should not expect results like Botox from them.
Myth 4: Facial exercises are Anti-Ageing
It is believed that facial exercises sharpen chic bones and may help reduce wrinkles. Unlike bones, the skin is quite elastic and there is also a lot of resistance or resistance.
As a result, facial exercises pull the skin and stretch it instead of tightening it. In fact, wrinkles can be aggravated by giving more activity and tension in muscles, or by continuous stretching or stretching. Botox relaxes these muscles and prevents wrinkles.
Myth 5: Sunscreens are only to Protect Against Tanning
Sunscreen not only protects your skin from tanning but also protects your face from exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. In addition to sunburn, the sun’s UV rays can cause skin wrinkles, dark spots, and burnt skin.
When you use a sunscreen with at least 30 SPF every day, it helps to prevent the signs of ageing. It also helps in preventing the signs of ageing before age.
Sunscreen products that contain antioxidants and if applied at least 30 minutes before going out in the sun, can also prevent skin cancer.
