It’s no surprise that ancient Egyptian queens loved to sleep on silk pillows as it seems that silk helps give a smooth look to the skin and hair, so try your best to sleep on a pillow casing made out of silk or satin. This way your wrinkles will be much smoother and you’ll wake up looking radiant.
There are 4 types of wrinkles so try to determine which ones have affected your skin. These types are fine, profound, static and dynamic.

Static wrinkles sow all the time while dynamic ones appear only when the facial muscles start to move. By knowing which type of wrinkles have affected your skin you can determine which products are efficient for you.
Light cardio exercises such as walking are highly beneficial for your health and also help prevent the appearance of wrinkles as these exercises help get the blood pumping, ensuring a proper oxygenation of the cells, help reduce stress and reduce facial tension.
