7 Tips for Reducing Wrinkles and Rashes

These tips for reducing wrinkles and rashes are from Dr Julia Hunter of Skin Fitness Plus in Beverly Hills, CA. “Your appearance is affected by the internal effects of the foods you eat,” says Dr Hunter. Your diet affects much more than your weight; it affects your skin, hair, and overall appearance!

Before her tips, a quip from a gorgeous, youthful actress:

“It’s time to stop worrying about losing our looks and started celebrating the gifts of age: I feel yummier than ever,” said Sela Ward.

Sure – it’s easier for her to say! Sela Ward is naturally gorgeous. The rest of us could use a little help here and there as we strive to achieve our beauty goals…and it’s great to know that certain healthy foods reduce wrinkles and keep us looking younger.

7 Tips for Reducing Wrinkles and Rashes

1. Reduce wrinkles and rashes with natural collagen. “Aging is collagen failure. People who restrict their calories decrease their inflammation, so they age less quickly. People who take many and varied antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and who keep their hormone producing organs functioning at a robust, healthy level age much less quickly,” says Dr Hunter. “In fact, they seem to stop aging.”

2. Avoid inflammation –it makes you look old. “Food causes inflammation, which causes disease and aging,” says Dr Hunter. “Other things also contribute to inflammation, such as pollution, sunlight, radiation, stress, medications, and chemicals. Inflammation and glycation are the chemical processes that change our appearance.”

I’m a huge fan of moisturizer every morning and night, and I don’t wear pore-clogging makeup or cosmetics. I don’t know if this makes a difference, but I definitely like my skin better when it’s clear of makeup.

  1. Nutrients are proven to stimulate hair growth in a way that chemicals can’t. You will find far too many chemically induced products which are only damaging your health, burning a hole in your pocket and performing absolutely nothing to improve your appearance. Thanks so much for this interesting 7 tips.

    Thanks for your tip, Pandora. I haven’t tried topical vitamins – I didn’t realize they help reduce wrinkles and rashes. Interesting!

    Thanks for your skin care tips, Heather! I haven’t tried alpha hydroxy acid peels, but I’ve heard they’re effective. I’m not sure what they do, though….??

  4. Wrinkles can be reduced by exfoliating regularly with alpha hydroxy acid peels. You also need to avoid sunlight, which accelerates skin aging.

    Thanks for these tips for reducing wrinkles and rashes, Sheena!

    The only thing I use on my face is a moisturizer. I don’t have many wrinkles yet, but I have lots of skin blemishes and blotches. Ugh, but the truth is I don’t care that much what my skin looks like. I’d rather spend my time and money writing! 🙂

  6. one good way to prevent wrinkles is using Topical Vitamin C and Topical Copper Peptides. it is also necesseary to avoid direct exposure to sunlight because it causes wrinkles and rashes.

  7. When I interviewed Dr Hunter for my skin care articles, I didn’t think to ask if anti-aging creams and moisturizers that are supposed to prevent wrinkles actually work. I thought those anti-wrinkles were just a scam – but I haven’t actually tried any, so I don’t know.

    A huge part of looking young is being healthy, fit, and strong. I don’t think wrinkles or age spots are as detracting as we think….that is, they matter less than personality, happiness level, and how we treat others.

  8. I’ve been considering trying the vitamin enhanced moisturizer from Made From Earth, but this is the first time I’ve bought it and I’m certainly not sorry I did. It has made a noticeable difference in the appearance of fine lines as well as deeper wrinkles that have developed over my 65+ yr. lifetime. It only takes a tiny bit, though – I too thought it was expensive – but since it only takes a small amount to cover your face – the bottle lasts for so long its cheaper than stuff in drug stores, without the harmful chemicals.
    If you accidentally use too much, just wait about 20 minutes and wipe off the excess with a tissue. My husband is using it instead of his usual aloe and likes it, also. Most of the reveiws I read about the vitamin enhanced moisturizer seem to be younger, so I thought I’d let older buyers know it will work for you as well.

  9. I had age spots on my cheeks when I was only 24 and couldn’t believe it. I went to a local med spa and had laser rejuvenation done. After 3 treatments the age spots were gone. If your’s don’t go away soon, think about it.
