Win the Battle against Aging Lines

One morning when you were 28, you woke up to new lines on your face. You noticed that somehow you had aged overnight. You saw new lines framing your mouth and near your eyes. Worried that you may have a vitamin deficiency or some other ailment, you scour the internet for information about the new lines on your face and learn that they were aging lines. After an exhaustive search, you found some easy steps to help reduce and prevent aging lines.

Treatment Types

The first step is to cleanse your face at least twice a day, usually when you get up and before you go to bed. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells if done at least once a week. Getting enough sleep in the proper position is an essential step in getting rid of aging lines. Try sleeping on your back to prevent creases and folds on your face.

Most people use day and night creams to treat and soften the lines on their face and neck. Creams and serums that contain vitamin C work as an anti-aging wrinkle-fighting solution. In addition to vitamin C, the day cream should also include sunscreen of an SPF level of 30 or higher. If not, apply sunscreen during your routine skincare.

The use of creams at night is important because moisture is lost while you sleep. The cream should be thick and used with a retinol and peptide serum to soften fine lines for a smooth and firm complexion. Consumers are turning to natural products that include the use of a CBD cream to reduce fine lines and to increase collagen production. CBD products promote healing, cleansing, and moisturizing for the skin.

The hyaluronic serum is considered a secret weapon for pulling moisture into your skin. This increase of moisture helps plump the skin’s surface to fill in lines and wrinkles.

Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for diminishing frown lines, crows feet, and other lines on the face. This treatment is not permanent, and injections into the affected areas are applied as needed. The procedure is quick, with little or no downtime, and noticeable results occur within 24 to 48 hours. Botox injections may be expensive, with the average treatment costing around $300 and higher.


Eating a diet rich in collagen-producing foods is a great way to fight aging lines. Anti-aging foods produce radiant and healthy skin by fighting free radicals and nourishing the skin with essential fats and other nutrients. These foods include avocados, black sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, omega-3s, selenium, protein, heirloom tomatoes, and vitamin C and E.

In contrast to these anti-aging foods, avoid foods that increase the aging process. These foods should be avoided if you want those lines to disappear from your face. Potato chips and french fries can add inflammation to your body. Doughnuts and sugary pastries, hot dogs, bacon, pepperoni, or other processed meats are high in saturated fats and contain nitrates. Other fatty meats and excessive alcohol may speed up the aging process.


Endurance exercises such as swimming or running will slow signs of aging. These types of activities affect levels of nitric oxide in the blood, which affects cellular aging and regenerative. Nitric oxide increases blood flow while lowering blood pressure.

Remember drinking plenty of water, exercising, sleeping, and eating a healthy diet promotes healthy and younger-looking skin. Avoid alcohol as much as possible. Try to sleep on your back to prevent folds and creases on your face. A pillow under your knees will make sleeping on your back easy. Anti-aging moisturizers and creams after cleansing and exfoliation are essential for youthful-looking skin. Giving your face a workout with facial massages, facial gua sha, or facial exercises helps to maintain firmness and prevents sagging facial skin.
