That’s the question we are asked the most. In recent years, many of you have chosen to shun traditional anti-aging techniques such as retinol-based products or Botox injections in favor of more natural and skin-friendly methods. But what is the best way to maintain youthful, supple skin and effectively smooth out wrinkles?
First, it's important to understand how the skin works and why fine lines and wrinkles appear before finding the right solution for you.
What is the difference between a fine line and a wrinkle?
Fine lines are shallow and barely noticeable creases that can appear early due to skin dehydration. Wrinkles, on the other hand, are deeper and usually found on the areas of the face that are most stimulated by everyday expressions, such as the forehead and around the eyes. Wrinkles are caused by a decrease in elastin production, a natural protein that gives the skin its elasticity.
How can you take care of your skin and prevent fine lines and wrinkles from appearing?
Many factors can impact premature aging, such as alcohol, smoking, fatigue, and dehydration.
If your skin is marked and you are under 35 years old, it's likely that your skin is dehydrated. Your skin needs to be moisturized daily regardless of skin type, whether oily or dry. We recommend using a hydrating serum every day and a light moisturizer if you have combination skin or a richer texture if you have dry skin to nourish your skin. Bonus: hydrating combination skin can help balance it and naturally reduce sebum production.
If you are over 35 and your skin shows the first signs of aging, opt for a nourishing night oil and daily hydration with a serum and moisturizer adapted to your skin type. Mature skin types can benefit from richer creams that better suit their needs.
Engage in facial exercises and try face gym
Good lifestyle habits and an adapted routine may not always be enough to restore the skin's elasticity and reduce wrinkles. At Seasonly, we believe in the transformative power of face gym and self-massage. We recommend massaging your face daily using specific techniques tailored to your skin concerns. Like your body, your face is made up of nearly 50 muscles that need to be exercised. Facial massage helps relax them, smooth out the skin, and stimulate blood circulation. A few minutes every day are enough to achieve visible results.
Which accessory should you choose to start face gym?
Massage tools are not essential; you can start face gym by massaging your skin with your hands, making sure to always move from the center of the face outwards and from top to bottom. You can also opt for accessories such as a Gua Sha, which allows for deeper massage and targeting hard-to-reach areas such as the nasolabial folds or brow bone. You can also use the boulado, a small palpating-draining tool that helps decongest the skin and boost blood circulation.
