How can you reduce existing wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles? With these tips you can learn to prevent and reduce wrinkles in a natural way.

Eat your wrinkles away

When UV rays penetrate your skin they create free radicals which in turn damage healthy cells, and can cause wrinkles to develop over time.

Antioxidants help to protect your body against the damage of free radicals.

Eating antioxidant rich foods is a great way to fight free radicals. Blueberries and green or white tea are just some of examples.

​In cosmetics, antioxidants are present in many creams. The fragility of antioxidants however means that the water content destroys the antioxidants over time.

Simon Therapie’s Complement is an oil based ingredient that should be added to creams at time of application, ensuring the full strength of the antioxidants.

Touch your skin as little as possible

Touch your skin as little as possible, doing this will prevent the spread of bacteria and hence pimples, but also you are not damaging your skin cells.

For the same reason do not use aggressive skin scrubs because the more damage you do to your skin the more wrinkles you cause.

Don’t dry your skin out

Wash your skin with gentle facial cleansers. This rids your skin of its natural oils, leaving your skin sensitive and gets easily damaged. If you moisturize your skin well, existing wrinkles and fine lines will be less noticeable.

Use a good cream

A good cream moisturizes and nourishes the skin, therefore protecting it.

Don’t worry, be happy!

According to researchers, an optimistic, relaxed outlook on life keep your face looking young.
