Everybody is human enough to age. Since you are not living in a fairytale world where neither Sleeping Beauty nor Cinderella grows older but rather just proliferates well into the future all the time, expect to see those fine lines and sagging skin very soon. Acceptance is a key strategy when it comes to aging skin but, so too is never surrendering your youthful skin without giving your human nature a good fight.
Human Nature vs. You
You have to be kidding to think even for just one moment that you will even beat human nature — senescence, the natural course of aging all the cells in your body will take eventually — for good. Before continuing any further down the road of wrinkle treatment, you have to straighten up your expectations because what you should be more realistically concerned about is how to reduce wrinkles.
Here are the top 5 ways to quickly rid your skin of wrinkles:
When you need an instant pick-me-up from your wrinkled skin, think of your makeup as your fairy godmother: ‘your wish is its command’. Here are some tips and tricks to try with your makeup to give you five years younger complexion in just under 15 minutes:
You want to give your skin a moisture boost to plump it up and fill those creases with moisture. Start with a refreshing cleanse, ideally with a soap-free cleanser and an alpha or beta hydroxy acid such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid which will start of your skin with a very light exfoliation. Pat dry and follow through with a rehydrating facial mask. Wipe off with lukewarm water. Use a moisturizing toner.
Set aside those pigments and start by treating your skin: eye serum for skin around your eyes, and for your face, neck and chest, call in your essences, essential oils, antioxidants and moisturizers. Tap and spread to pack in moisture. Be as generous as you want to be but, make sure to use oil-free products only.
Use a pigmented concealer to neutralize hyper pigmented areas on your skin, most especially paying attention to puffiness and dark skin around your eyes.
Smoothen your skin by using a foundation in your natural skin tone. This may take time for you to perfect but, keep looking for that brand and shade that effortlessly blends into your skin like a camouflage.
This time, use a concealer that is either up to two shades lighter or darker than your natural skin tone, depending on the imperfection that you are working on.
They’re not accessories. The quality of your brushes and sponges do make a difference so choose wisely and keep them clean.
Walk out of your skin specialist’s clinic with tighter skin. Just make sure you understand that once you start on this routine, you will have to get a retouch every three or four months.
When Botox aren’t for you but, you can’t wait for your Strivectin’s NIA-114 technology to work wonders, there’s laser treatment. These procedures work like exfoliation — the top skin is sloughed off to stimulate your skin cells to make more collagen and facilitate a faster surfacing of newer, less damaged skin. Laser treatments are highly targeted so that only damaged patches of skin are treated.
Used singly or with laser treatments, this procedure utilizes radio waves to heal your skin and facilitate a faster skin cell turnover to happen. When used on its own, radio waves penetrate your skin deeply without having to punch holes or damage the top layer.
These can be done safely DIY style but, only with at-home, non-prescription exfoliants. If you think you need something stronger, it will be best to get a chemical peel administered by a professional who will help you determine the strength of the chemical you need for you to see the improvements you want to see on your skin.

These procedures may make you appear younger and more beautiful but, keep in mind that you also need to wear your own true blue personality with it. “Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful,” Sophia Loren once said.
