If you want to improve wrinkles, you need to understand wrinkles first. Only when we figure out how wrinkles come from and why they are formed, can we prevent and reduce wrinkles well in advance!
What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles are small fine lines and wrinkles formed by the formation of free radicals on the skin under the influence of the external environment. Free radicals destroy the collagen and active substances in normal cell membrane tissues and oxidize cells.
Wrinkles gradually appeared. The order of appearance is generally forehead, upper and lower eyelids, lateral canthus, preauricular area, cheek, neck, chin, and perioral area. Facial wrinkles divide into two types: shrinking wrinkles and hypertrophy wrinkles.
Atrophic wrinkles refer to wrinkles on thin, easily cracked, and dry skin, such as those numerous small wrinkles around the eyes; hypertrophic wrinkles refer to wrinkles on oily skin, which are small in quantity, but dense and deep in texture, such as the forehead.

It is recommended that you drink grape juice when you eat grapes, and you can drink grape polyphenols together with grape seeds.

Golden rules for smoothing wrinkles
If you feel that you are in your early 20s a long way from aging, you are very wrong! The appearance of fine lines, small wrinkles, stains, dry face, and muscle relaxation are all primary symptoms of skin aging.
Golden Rule 1: Isolation and sun protection are the key
The UVA rays in the sun are one of the two main culprits of skin aging. Applying sunscreen (SPF 15 or above) every day can reduce the degree of photo-aging of the skin.
Golden Rule 2: Skincare starts with “maintenance genes”
As I get older, some favorite skincare products don’t seem to be as effective as when I first started using them? Is the product ingredient invalid? Or is the skin inert to the product? The reason for this feeling is that the foundation of the skin has deteriorated.
Therefore, if you want to stay old, you must start with the maintenance of genes. The patented active substance essence in the essence formula can re-stimulate the activity of specific genes, thereby promoting the synthesis of “repairing” proteins. In this way, the skin can regenerate this unique “repairing” protein after 6 hours, to achieve the purpose of gene maintenance and keep the skin from aging.
Golden Rule 3: Moisturizing is the foundation
The ingredient in the skin that has the function of locking water is called the moisturizing factor (biologically called hyaluronic acid HA). Hyaluronic acid in the human body is synthesized by the human body by ingesting foods rich in mucopolysaccharides.
And hyaluronic acid will decrease with age. Under the condition of computer ultraviolet light and heat, hyaluronic acid will slowly decompose and consume. Therefore, the older you get, the more dry skin, wrinkles, and sagging skin will appear.
Golden Rule 4: Develop good eating habits
Experts pointed out that vegetables and fruits play a very important role in the anti-aging process. Such as anti-aging foods: garlic, soybeans, broccoli, winter melon, carrots, tomatoes, fish (tuna, crucian), shellfish, onions, cabbage, tofu, mushrooms, potatoes, coriander, spinach, eggs, walnuts, chocolate, malt, yogurt, strawberries, oranges, apples, and other fresh fruits and vegetables.
Golden Rule 5: From the inside out, don’t ignore the inner conditioning
With age, the skin condition declines rapidly, and the replacement of expensive cosmetics may not necessarily see obvious results. Skin aging is becoming increasingly obvious, and the complexion is dull.
Indeed, maintenance alone is far from enough. From the inside to the outside, through internal replenishment and conditioning, the health of the body, the beauty of the skin, and the delay of physical and skin aging can be achieved.
Golden Rule 6: Keep doing aerobic exercise
Long-term adherence to aerobic exercise can increase hemoglobin in the body, improve the body’s resistance, and anti-aging. Regular aerobic exercises include walking, brisk walking, jogging, skating, swimming, cycling, fitness dance, rope skipping/rhythmics, and so on.
