Wrinkle prevention for Black Skin
We have compiled a list of treatments, causes, and prevention of wrinkles on black skin to preserve a beautiful complexion and melanin-rich appearance.
As the skin typically wrinkles, it becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic with age. It is usual to see wrinkles appear on the face in areas where the skin folds naturally during facial expressions.
Common locations for wrinkles in melanin-rich skin are all sun-exposed body and face areas. Black skin wrinkles with regular aging; however, wrinkles are more noticeable in individuals with lighter skin.
Prolonged exposure to radiation from the sun (UV) and smoking tobacco can make wrinkles more prominent by speeding the aging process.
Does melanin-rich skin wrinkle less?
According to studies conducted in 2016, black skin characteristics and components prevent it from aging as fast as white skin.
- Higher and long-lasting UV protection as black skin contains more melanin.
- Some outer layers in black skin contain more lipid content than other ethnicities, which prevents premature wrinkling.
- Black skin has richer and denser collagen fibers than other ethnicities.
- Elastic fibers found in the skin don’t break as easily on melanin-rich skin.
We have compiled a list of factors that increase aging and wrinkle appearance in black skin.
Prolonged UV exposure
Premature skin aging can be developed after chronic exposure to the sun. After years of prolonged sun exposure without protection, the skin can turn wrinkly, leathery, and delicate. We recommend using an appropriate and tested UV protector to prevent this type of damage.
Poor eating habits
Essential nutrients and antioxidants are necessary to maintain healthy skin and assure the proper functioning of all skin barriers.
Researchers have found associations between premature aging of the skin and chronic smoking. An individual who quits smoking could notice that signs of aging become less visible.
Effective wrinkle prevention and treatments for black skin
We have compiled several treatments and remedies for black skin that can help reduce wrinkles and age signs.
Retinoids on melanin skin
Retinoids are topical vitamin A that can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Our miracle formula, the Resurfacing Crème, is a powerful formula designed to help reduce the appearance of acne scarring, textured skin, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and fine lines. Your new complexion will appear naturally brighter and smoother. Retinoic acid works by increasing the production of both collagen and new blood vessels in the skin. As a result, beautiful, healthy, and glowing skin.
Moisturizers help by trapping water in the skin and setting a protective foundation. Our miracle moisturizer fights all signs of aging, sun damage, and free radicals while giving skin the nourishment it craves; it’s formulated with Kiwi, Licorice, Mulberry, and Green Tea Extracts that work together in a non-comedogenic, ultra-hydrating formula to balance and protect. Peptides help to encourage collagen production, while Mango, Avocado, and Shea Butters maintain the skin’s moisture balance.
If you would like to step up your treatment aside from using a Resurfacing Crème rich in Vitamin A and natural components to keep black skin flawless and prevent aging, Microdermabrasions is a non-invasive treatment that can remove the dead cells of the outer layer of the skin without damaging melanin-rich skin.
A skincare specialist performs the treatment across the face or the treated area with a small, hand-held device. Several microdermabrasion treatments can improve fine wrinkle lines and overall skin discoloration.
