While Botox and dermal fillers are go-to wrinkle erasers for some people, others are searching for alternative ways to get rid of wrinkles. Our team has put together five ways to prevent wrinkles before they start to happen.
#1 – PROTECT YOUR SKIN
We’ve certainly learned our lesson on the damage tanning beds, repeated sunburns, and tanning oils cause to our delicate skin (read How Tanning Affects Your Skin). It’s widely known that daily sun protection can help prevent premature aging of the skin like eye wrinkles.
Our Swan Sunblock, a light, aloe-based sunblock with SPF 30, delivers high UV protection with wrinkle-fighting peptides and antioxidants including Green Tea and Lipoic Acid, leaving skin clear and fresh.
#2 – PROTECT YOUR EYES
Keep those wrinkles and crow’s feet away by protecting your eyes from the sun! The skin around your eyes is the most sensitive and fragile on your whole face. Sunglasses with full spectrum UVA/UVB protection and hats that shade your face are also excellent tools for sun protection. Like sunblock, they should be used in all seasons; the sun’s UVA/UVB rays are just as damaging to our skin in the fall and winter as they are in spring and summer. Did you know that in addition to sun damage, unshaded eyes can cause repeated blinking and wrinkles? You can read more about what causes eye wrinkles here.
#3 – NOURISH YOUR BODY
Being mindful of what you put into your body is an important part of your “anti-wrinkle plan.” Eat a healthy, balanced diet, with a variety of proteins, fruits, and vegetables. Stay hydrated by drinking eight to ten glasses of water each day to avoid dehydration and reduce the look of wrinkles. Learn about four inflammatory foods to avoid.
#4 – CHOOSE THE RIGHT SKIN CARE ROUTINE
The proper skin care regime can take years off your skin. Drs. Cohen and Swartz’ customized Swan Skin Care is fantastic for women and men, working deep down below the skin’s surface to stimulate skin repair and rejuvenation. Swan Skin Care refreshes your skin by repairing, protecting, and gently stimulating. Below are three of our go-to skin transformation products.

SWAN VITAMIN C 20% SERUM
This Vitamin C Serum is truly one of the best we have ever seen. The combination of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, and Ferulic Acid make it a powerful antioxidant serum that protects your skin from environmental factors like sun damage.
The serum will improve your skin by addressing signs of aging, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as brightening and evening out your skin.
Another benefit to using this serum is that when combined with sunblock, Vitamin C and Vitamin E can reduce the chance of melanoma compared to using just sunblock alone.
This antioxidant cream combines skin lighteners, Vitamins C & E, Alpha-Hydroxy Acids and saponins to protect and renew the skin. It fights damage and prevents skin from aging.
This potent cream stimulates your skin to build new cells, collagen (preventing wrinkles) and elastin (tightening skin) to make your skin look and act younger. Tretinoin can be customized to be just the right strength for your skin.
#5 – GET YOUR EYE ALLERGIES UNDER CONTROL
Unfortunately, ocular allergies are not only frustrating but can cause long term cosmetic eye issues. The most common cosmetic effects are bags under the eyes and wrinkling of the skin underneath and on the sides of the eyes. Learn more on ocular allergies here.
