There’s nothing fine about fine lines

Time goes by so fast, does it not?  We have all wished at some point we can hit the pause button for just a little bit - or better yet, reverse it.

This is especially true when it comes to discovering fine lines or wrinkles on your face one fateful day. Perhaps you find them around your eyes, forehead, maybe even your pout. Sure, we all still feel eighteen, and while we may not want to relive that year, it would be pretty nice to have that smooth, crack-less skin we once took for granted once more.

Before you run to book an appointment to get poked with Botox, check out these simple and much cheaper alternatives to regain that youthful complexion and rid it of wrinkles and crepe-y fine lines.

The main culprit of all signs of aging is all thanks to the amount of sun exposure you have experienced throughout your entire life. If you haven’t been religiously slathering it on, there’s no better time like the present to prevent making your fine lines and wrinkles deeper. 

Diet and Exercise 
The amount of exercise you get combined with your diet has an enormous impact on how rapidly or slowly your skin ages. By limiting the amount of sugar you eat and replacing it with nutrient rich fruits and veggies that are high in Vitamin C, E, A and B. A simple way to do this is to “eat the rainbow” everyday. Foods that are especially high in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to include in daily are as follows:

Watercress: neutralizes free radicals and packed with Vitamin A, C, K, B-1, and B-2, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium and Phosphorus. Easy addition to salads! 
Blueberries: Prevents collagen loss with antioxidant anthocyanin and Vitamin A and C
Broccoli: Acting as a beneficial powerhouse agent for fine lines. Loaded with fiber, lutein and Vitamin C and K 

Getting a good workout in a few times a week if not everyday plays a critical role in our aging process. With increased circulation, oxygen and nutrients rise to the skin, obliterating cellular toxins. 

Antioxidant Oils 
Kiss your fine lines and wrinkles buh-bye with a little help from facial oils like Avoila Nourishing Face Oil. Not all oils are built to target fine lines however. A little help as we mentioned, goes a long way. A few drops in the morning and night can miraculously turn back the clock faster than you can imagine.

Grapeseed Oil: combats free radicals, rich in omega 6, reduces inflammation
Camellia Seed Oil: high in Oleic acid and vitamin A, repairs Sun damage while stimulating the production of new skin cells 
Avocado Oil: Increases collagen production while reducing inflammation, improves appearance and texture with its beta-sitosterol, lecithin, minerals and vitamins A, C, D and E properties. 
Kalahari Melon Seed Oil: high potency of linoleic acid and vitamins A and E, combats free radicals caused by harmful UV rays due to sun exposure
