    Both natural aging and everyday actions cause lines and wrinkles to form on the face. 

    As you age, the dermis begins to thin, collagen production decreases, and gravity starts to pull on the skin – contributing to the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In addition, unprotected exposure to the sun contributes to approximately 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging. A poor diet, smoking, or improper skin care habits can also bring on lines and wrinkles.

    Exfoliation is crucial to skin that’s showing lines and wrinkles – since the build up of dead skin cells can get trapped on the skin's surface, making it difficult for skin to absorb key anti-aging ingredients and as well as needed hydration. Plus, as skin ages, its natural exfoliation process of cell turnover slows down, making lines and wrinkles appear even deeper. 

    An exfoliator like Quick Refiner is the perfect choice to help smooth out the skin and make way for active penetration of ingredients to follow.

    Aging, lined skin that’s faced UV exposure, or other environmental aggressors is often starved for moisture. When the hydro-lipidic barrier is disrupted, the surface can become dry, tight and flaky – emphasizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 

    Boost skin’s hydration from all angles in the form of a daily moisturizer, hydrating serum, and weekly gel or creme mask.

    Nothing ages you more than the sun. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation and the American Society for Photobiology, about 20% of a person's lifetime sun exposure is acquired before age 18 – you get about 10 percent more every decade after that. So the sun is always working hard to age your skin – no matter what your age. Wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen every single day is absolutely necessary to keep wrinkles at bay.

    Repair at night

    While you’re asleep, your skin is hard at work, repairing itself from the day’s damage from exposure to environmental aggressors such as UV rays, smog, nicotine, etc., and rejuvenating itself for the next day. At night, Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) increases, causing the skin’s protective hydro-lipid barrier to weaken, allowing for greater penetration of active ingredients. Your stress hormones decrease during sleep, so the skin is better able to repair itself.

    It’s vital to take advantage of this time with an active overnight age activist creme for lines and wrinkles – it will help smooth their appearance, and replenish and energize overnight – so you’ll wake up to younger-looking skin.
