How to Erase Fine Lines & Wrinkles on Your Face

Fend off fine lines and ward away wrinkles with prevention and a little attention with the right ingredients.

You will need

  • Alpha-hydroxy acids
  • Retinol
  • Antioxidants
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Green tea and red wine
  • Sunscreen
  • Moisturizer with sunscreen (optional)
  • Tretinoin (optional)

Step 1 Try AHAs Try creams and lotions with alpha-hydroxy acids, which remove dead skin cells, reduce lines and age spots, and exfoliate. Start with a low dose every other day and work up to daily use to avoid irritation.

Step 2 Use retinol Use topical retinol, a powerful antioxidant derived from vitamin A, proven to promote collagen production and plump skin while ironing out wrinkles.

Step 3 Look for antioxidants Look for moisturizers and products with other important antioxidants, including vitamins A, C, and E, alpha-lipoic acid, acai oil, and coenzyme Q10.

Step 4 Consider hyaluronic acid Consider products with hyaluronic acid, something your body produces naturally but slows with age. Hyaluronic-acid-based injectable fillers instantly plump skin and stimulate collagen production.

Step 5 Drink healthy Swap coffee for green tea and white wine for red wine. Both red wine and green tea contain anti-aging antioxidants and polyphenols.

Step 6 Wear sunscreen Wear sunscreen year-round on your face, neck, and chest. Sun is the number one cause of premature aging.
