The 10 best anti-aging tips: This really helps against wrinkles

July 15, 2022

Everyone has wrinkles. We need wrinkles to express our faces through facial expressions. The only problem: wrinkles that frame our smile become deeper over time. This applies just as much to wrinkles on the forehead as it does to the nasolabial fold between the nose and mouth or crow's feet on the eyes.

From around the age of 25, cell activity begins to decline. This causes your skin to lose its elasticity and form the first wrinkles. Skin aging is influenced by three main components:   

  • Genes
  • Environmental factors
  • Individual lifestyle

Although you can't influence the first factor, we have good news: the skin aging process can be significantly delayed through proper skin care, a healthy lifestyle and proven anti-aging methods. The term 'anti-aging' includes all treatments, products and measures that slow down the process of skin aging.

Anti-aging in everyday life: This is how it works  

If you want to keep your skin young, you should take anti-aging measures by the age of 30 at the latest. In this article we will introduce you to the best natural and minimally invasive anti-aging tips that really help against wrinkles.  

1. Thoroughly cleanse the skin

Instead of immediately resorting to medical intervention, you should first try out gentle remedies and preventative measures to support your skin in regeneration. Of course, this includes thoroughly cleansing the skin – morning and evening.

Before going to bed at the latest, you should remove all make-up residue such as foundation, mascara and lipstick to give your skin room to breathe again.

You don't wear any make-up at all? Even then, use cleansing gel every day, because make-up is not the only culprit that can cause long-term damage to your skin. Aggressive ingredients in cosmetic products such as alcohol and fragrances remove moisture and attack the protective film of your skin. In addition, there are environmental influences such as free radicals and bacteria that reach our faces through our hands.  

That's why it's important to cleanse your skin every day and remove all deposits - for example with one micro-fine foam cleansing with a fresh effect, an oil-based cleansing balm ('Cleansing Balm') or reusable make-up remover pads. If old skin cells, sebum and dirt are removed, your skin can regenerate - and also absorbs the nourishing ingredients of creams and serums better. A win-win situation!  

This Skincare highlights you should incorporate it into your care routine.

2. Sun protection – not just in summer 

We at Sanft & Schön recommend using sun protection all year round. Contrary to what is often wrongly assumed, UV rays do not take a break even in winter. Excessive sunlight accelerates skin aging at any time of the year, promotes the formation of free radicals and promotes the breakdown of collagen. In addition, every sunburn permanently damages your cell structure and accelerates the formation of wrinkles - so you should regularly apply UV protection cream, especially in summer. First aid for sunburn offer anti-inflammatory creams, moisturizing after-sun products or cooling showers. 

A moisturizing day cream with sun protection factor helps prevent wrinkles and is easy to integrate into everyday life as an anti-aging routine. 

3. Adequate sleep and recovery periods 

Sufficient sleep and regular recovery periods are also important for wrinkle-free skin. An anti-aging tip that is easier said than done - after all, the stress of everyday work weighs on us all.  

Nevertheless: for a young, radiant skin Sufficient and good sleep is essential. Eight to nine hours per night are recommended. During these hours, the production of interleukins - these are messenger substances in the cells of the immune system - is stimulated and growth hormones are released.

So next time, turn off the TV an hour earlier and give your skin an extra dose of sleep. She will thank you!  

4. Vitamin-rich, low-sugar diet and enough water

Not only sleep, but also nutrition influences the quality of our skin. We need healthy foods to build collagen fibers, which strengthen connective tissue and keep it elastic. For beautiful skin from the inside For example, you should eat hazelnuts, linseeds, peppers, cabbage and avocado - these contain vitamin C and E and have an antioxidant effect. Equally important: beta-carotene. The preliminary stage of A vitamins promotes the skin's tolerance to light. It is found in carrots, beetroot and spinach.

When it comes to bread or pasta, you should definitely use the whole grain variety because of its high magnesium content. The magnesium ensures that cell walls remain stable. The result: firm skin and a smooth, even epidermis. Also make sure you drink enough. Adequate fluid intake of at least 2.5 liters daily is necessary to prevent wrinkles.  

5. Anti-aging facial massages

Although the new generation of anti-aging products impresses with impressive ingredients, there is one beauty tool that has proven itself for thousands of years in the fight against the signs of the times: facial massage. 

It is one of the oldest beauty secrets and was used by the ancient Egyptians to combat small wrinkles. Wrinkles arise not only from the loss of elasticity in the skin, but also from tension in the facial muscles. Anyone who often strains their eyes or frowns frequently produces expression lines. These muscular hardenings initially relax relatively quickly, but over time they 'dig' into the face.  

The uncomplicated movements of the 'facial massage' stimulate your blood circulation again and give your face a rosy appearance. In the long term, your skin will become more elastic and plumper, small wrinkles will be smoothed out and your entire facial expression will appear softer and more relaxed.

By the way: After a facial massage you can Serums and oils are better incorporated into your skin and thus enhance the effect of the stimulating massage. 

6. Anti-aging serums and concentrates 

If you would like to additionally support your skin with serums and concentrates, you can use retinol serums and collagen capsules. 

Thanks to its unique molecular structure, retinol is able to penetrate into the lowest layers of your skin and stimulate your body's own collagen production. Collagen helps maintain your skin's natural moisture levels and elasticity. Used regularly, you can demonstrably reduce visible wrinkles.

Collagen capsules are a good addition to serums. These help to compensate for the collagen deficiency from within. This is how it works: By taking the capsules, the collagen is transported to where your body needs it. With positive ones Consequences: The elasticity, tone and firmness of the skin is improved, your skin appears plumper and firmer - and wrinkles are evened out.

7. No nicotine, little or no alcohol

Either way, cigarettes should have been taboo for a long time because they are poison for your skin and constrict your blood vessels. Smoking attacks your skin cells and drastically worsens blood circulation.  

But you should also stay away from alcohol if you want to benefit from your youthful skin for a long time. Because alcohol dehydrates you. You'll notice this not only in the headache you have the day after the party, but also in the general condition of your skin if you frequently drink alcohol. Because alcohol removes water from the skin cells, your skin has a harder time regenerating, ages faster and forms more wrinkles.

Better: If you have acute cravings, choose blueberries, raspberries, black currants, peppers and strawberries, as they contain plenty of vitamin C, which protects your skin from cell damage. 

8. Face masks, also homemade

Face masks are an ideal addition to your skin care routine. Depending on the ingredients used, a facial mask can help clarify, smooth, and soothe the skin. It is also possible to promote regeneration processes with a facial mask for the skin.

At Sanft & Schön we differentiate between face masks based on how and when they are used. While a hydrogel facial mask has a refreshing and cooling effect on the skin, an overnight mask provides your skin with valuable nutrients and care substances thanks to its long exposure time.

A peel-off mask is applied with a brush and dries as a thin, elastic film on the skin. After the exposure time, this film is carefully removed, absorbing excess fat and removing loose skin flakes.  

9. Use of oils 

You may be asking yourself: “Why another facial oil when I already care for my skin with creams, serums and masks?” There is a simple answer to this: Facial oil hydrates right down to the deep layers of the skin, which neither a cream nor a serum can can achieve with this intensity. Oils not only give your skin an extra dose of moisture so that wrinkles are plumped up - they also protect the natural skin barrier.

The antioxidant effect of oils both counteracts cell damage and is anti-inflammatory. So you don't have to worry about the greasy substance causing impurities on your skin.

10. Anti-aging facials

Have you followed all the natural tips – but are still frustrated with the results? Don't worry: you don't have to plan a major cosmetic surgery procedure to rejuvenate your skin.  

Our gentle anti-aging treatments conjure up an even face - without a scalpel.
