Our skin has two layers: the outer layer or the epidermis and the layer below the epidermis or the dermis. The key substance in dermis is collagen- as we age, our bodies produce less collagen which makes us more prone to wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and lips. Naturally, nobody loves wrinkles, and for centuries, women have been trying to find the way to avoid them. Doctors have been using Botox for years to treat wrinkles, but there is something unnatural about it. Sure, a needle here or there won’t make you look like you’re made of wax, but the question has to be asked: is there a way to avoid putting chemicals in our skin and still look nice? Actually, there is! We made a list of 15 things you can do to avoid Botox and wrinkles at the same time.
- Stop smoking. Seriously, you should really quite once and for all. There are literally million reasons why not to smoke, and preventing wrinkles is one of them. If you are not scared enough, just imagine looking like Keith Richards each time you light a cigarette. Nicotine dries out your skin and there is no amount of Botox that can fix grey skin.
