Most people are eager to find ways to prevent wrinkles. There are plenty of techniques out there, but some of them are more effective than others. In fact, many popular tips are nothing more than myths. It’s easy to waste a lot of time and money on wrinkle-fighting strategies that don’t actually work.

By understanding how wrinkles actually occur and learning a few truly effective strategies, it’s possible to keep wrinkles at bay for a much longer period of time. Above all, it’s important to understand that wrinkles are simply a part of the aging process. Everybody gets them.

 While genetics do play a part in the condition and elasticity of your skin, it doesn’t tell the whole story. Environmental factors can also make a huge difference in the speed with which you get wrinkles in your skin.

Smoking and UV exposure can accelerate the onset of wrinkles, so cutting out cigarettes and using a SPF 30 sunscreen year-round will help you keep a youthful appearance. Moisturizing nightly can also improve the condition of your skin.

Exfoliating scrubs can do amazing things to your skin, but with some conditions. First, exfoliating scrubs aren’t good for certain types of skin. Sensitive skin, eczema or rosacea skin types can actually be over-exfoliated, leading to irritation.

Second, it’s better to keep your exfoliation a few times a week instead of every day. Indulge in a high-quality scrub fewer times a week to increase the radiance of your skin.
