A wrinkle is a fold, ridge or crease in
the skin. Skin wrinkles appear as a result of aging processes habitual
sleeping positions,loss of body mass or temporarily, as the result of
prolonged immersion in water.

Here are some ways to prevent wrinkles:

Quit Smoking:

Smoking is not good for skin. It makes you look years older, makes
your skin dry and sallow looking, gives you age spots, and adds a ton of
wrinkles to your face, especially around your eyes and lips.

It also deprives your skin of oxygen and nutrients, which causes a great deal of damage.

Drink Water:

Drinking lots of water is good, as it
moisturises your skin. It also helps to get rid of toxins from your
body. The skin looks healthy and radiant when it is properly hydrated.  

Get Plenty of Sleep

While sleeping, our bodies produce human
growth hormone, which induces growth and cell reproduction. When we
don’t get enough sleep, our bodies produce cortisol, a stress hormone.
Cortisol slows growth and tissue maintenance and results in dry skin.

Use a Nontoxic Sunscreen

Toxins and free radicals are a big source for wrinkles. So,we should
use a nontoxic sunscreen to prevent from getting our skin wrinkled.

Eat Lots of Antioxidants:

Free radicals like pollution and toxins
that damage our skin hate antioxidants. Vitamins A, C, & E, and beta
carotene are all antioxidants. We should eat some sources of
antioxidants like Blueberries 
spinach, kale, walnuts, artichokes, cranberries and beans.
