Men’s wrinkles and prevention: how many times have we read about this topic?
Every day we read millions of articles on how to prevent men’s wrinkles. So many promises, so many words but so few effective remedies to prevent this annoying ageing problem.
In this article we want to dispel the myth of the middle-aged man without wrinkles – yes, anyone in his 40s will know exactly what I mean.
Wrinkles are part of the natural course of skin ageing, but this doesn’t necessarily mean your face needs to be a complete giveaway to your age. There are many remedies to counteract the onset of wrinkles.
Let’s examine together how to prevent men’s wrinkles and what remedies the aesthetic market offers.
But, first of all, we need to understand what causes wrinkles.
What Causes Men’s Wrinkles?
The lifestyle we adopt is one of the major factors influencing the onset of wrinkles. It is common knowledge that a busy lifestyle will cause wrinkles to appear much sooner than they should.
So, how can we prevent wrinkles on men’s skin?
Here are some tips to follow:
- Follow a correct diet: rich in vitamins and antioxidants.
- Moisturize the skin on your face throughout the entire day.
- Exercise: sport isn’t only good for body-shape but also for peace of mind.
- Use only quality anti-wrinkle cosmetics. Much better if filled with natural ingredients.
- Use anti-wrinkle creams before skin lines begin to appear.
- Sleeping on your back is a great way to prevent wrinkles. Squeezing the face on the pillow will increase the appearance of wrinkles.
- Stay fit and try to not wobble-weight: fast weight gain or loss causes skin to lose elasticity, therefore increasing wrinkles.
Stress makes skin dry!
When we are stressed our body diverts the blood flow, allocating a greater quantity to the peripheral organs such as skin.
This means that the skin will redden more easily.
Stress levels can affect the appearance of the whole face. The eyes will most likely be the first area where stress will show its work.
Unfortunately, genetic heritage is another of the ‘uncontrollable’ factors that define ageing speed.
Regarding this topic, some scientists may have recently discovered what is responsible for us looking older or younger.
Research-based on genome sequencing has found that white European people with two copies of a certain gene: MCR1, linked to those with fair skin, could look two years older than those who instead have only a single of this so-called MCR1 gene.
Now that we know, next time we notice a particularly young face in the crowd, we could be wondering which geniuses might be involved 😉
Surely, we can’t just blame genetics for our more or less wrinkled appearance. In fact, it goes hand-in-hand with other factors, such as stress, wild exposure to the sun and smoking.
Previous scientific studies have also shown that the relatively old appearance of someone’s face is influenced by genetic and by environmental factors, almost in equal measure.
Several studies have highlighted the difference in judging the age of people from different cultures or races, but the one thing we have to bear in mind is that perceptions of age can be very different.
We could say, that perception of age is undoubtedly in the eye of the beholder.
We know that in everyday life we don’t give someone an age exclusively based on their beautiful young face.
Usually, this process involves the whole person and includes, for example, hair colour, behaviour, gait and why not, even clothing.
How To Prevent Men’s Wrinkles
The prevention of male wrinkles is one of the fundamental aspects if you want to continue to maintain healthy and radiant skin even as you age.
Do not wait for wrinkles to assault your face before starting to take care of it.
As we all know, prevention is better than cure!
Adopting a skincare routine is essential to prevent and combat the first signs of male ageing. A daily skincare routine will ensure healthy skin every day.
It will act as a preventative measure, addressing all common skin problems before they become an issue.
Not only that, but by taking care of your skin on a daily and constant basis, you will see the difference. It will appear more toned, homogeneous and much brighter.
Skincare Routine For The Mid-20’s
Naturally, the skincare routine of those in their mid-20’s will be different from those in their mid-30’s.
Let’s see in more detail some tips on how to put a good skincare routine into practice.
- Wash your face at least twice a day.
Some people wash their face only in the morning as soon as they wake up. This is a serious mistake that loads of people made. During the day our face is exposed to the pollutants that surround us, so it is very important to cleanse the face even at the end of the day before going to bed.
- Keep your skin hydrated.
Even if you don’t consider yourself a person with dry skin, you should moisturize twice a day, once after each cleansing. Consider choosing a moisturiser formulated for your skin type, whether it’s dry, oily, acne-prone, or combination.
- Use vitamin C.
Vitamin C is one of the most powerful aids that mother nature has to offer us to prevent the onset of wrinkles. With its ability to counteract free radicals, this vitamin, applied to a clean face, will be a healthy touch of beauty for the skin.
- Exfoliate weekly.
Giving yourself a facial scrub at least once a week helps eliminate all dead cells that would otherwise form a dim, wrinkled layer of skin.
- Wear sunscreen every day, all year round.
Regardless of the month of the year you are in, always use sunscreen, even if you don’t see the UV rays out there. One of the best methods of preventing male wrinkles is to apply sunscreen. During the summer don’t forget to re-apply sunscreen cream after every swim.
Skincare Routine For The Mid-30’s
As mentioned earlier, a 20-year-old’s skin is very different from a 30-year-old’s. In our 30s, hormone levels begin to decline and the rate of collagen and elastin production drops.
The way you’ve taken care of your skin will play a role in the ageing process. This is why adopting a skincare routine in your early twenties will be of great help to you as a wrinkle prevention method in your later year.
As the years pass by, you may notice the first fine lines, those, if not treated with the right products and with due attention, will then become deep wrinkles.
However, don’t be scared, there are many good products on the market that can prevent men’s wrinkles.
Here, at Valuxxo, we firmly believe in the power of nature; and that’s why we suggest choosing only products with natural and organic ingredients that won’t harm your skin. You may notice the results a few days later, but you will be sure that you have nourished your skin with excellent quality food.
- Is it okay to use anti-aging products at 30?
Sure! It is precisely during the age of 30 that we must start using targeted products against wrinkles, which contain active ingredients that are effective, according to age. Hyaluronic acid, for example, will be one of the greatest allies for the prevention of wrinkles in men.
So, if you’re in your 30’s, follow the skincare routine we talked about earlier, but with the addition of products targeted for your age.
Hemp seed oil, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil are some of the best active ingredients that mother nature offers us, with their ability to fight wrinkles of any age.

Men’s Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
After having spoken about the natural methods to prevent men’s wrinkles, we’d like to talk very briefly about some methods – less natural – suitable for those who have problems with deep wrinkles and want to get rid of them permanently.
After all, feeling good about yourself is the most important thing.
Laser resurfacing is a procedure that uses a wand-like laser tool to remove the upper layers of the skin. Sometimes referred to as “laser peeling” as it removes old skin cells to reveal newer and younger cells.
It also heat the underlying layers to promote the production of collagen. This will stimulate the skin of the treated area to heal, giving a smoother and more uniform appearance.
Since the technique uses a laser, it can only be administered by a dermatologist or specialist. It mainly works by removing the top layer of wrinkled skin.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the joints, eyes and skin. In this case, it is administered in the form of a temporary dermal filler.
Hyaluronic acid attracts water, thereby hydrating the skin. As we age, the fat, muscles, bones and skin of the face begin to thin.
This loss of volume leads to a sunken or sagging face, fine lines, wrinkles, folds and thin lips.
Hyaluronic acid filler are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds and to create structure.
The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are seen immediately, but be aware: effects are temporary. Duration can vary from 6 months up to 1 year.
Chemical peels improve the appearance of wrinkled skin by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it, is usually smoother and less wrinkled in appearance.
A professional will apply a chemical mixture of – glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid and carbolic acid to the skin. The process creates a controlled wound, allowing new skin to grow re-placing the old wrinkled skin.
During the procedure, patients may experience a burning sensation that lasts for five to 10 minutes.
Cold packs can be applied to relieve pain. Pain medications may be needed for deeper peels.
A facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure. The procedure can reduce sagging or skin folds on the cheeks and jaw and other changes in face shape that occur with age.
During a facelift, a flap of skin on each side of the face is withdrawn. The tissues under the skin will be surgically altered to restore a more youthful shape to the facial contour.
Before the flap is sutured, the excess skin is removed. A neck lift is often performed as part of a face lift to reduce fat deposits and sagging skin on the neck.
Botulinum, better known as Botox is a drug that doctors have been using for years to treat facial wrinkles and creases.
Botox is a brand name for a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
There are other brands, such as Dysport and Xeomin, but you will hear more often about Botox because it was the first injectable botulinum toxin.
Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, so the injected muscle can no longer contract. This relaxes and softens wrinkles.
The effects of Botox will last from 3 to 6 months. As muscle action will slowly return, lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again.
We have come to the end of this article on how to prevent men’s wrinkles.
We wanted to tell you about some cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatments, because we want our readers to feel free to choose whatever makes them feel better. Each of us should be able to do this.
Our point of view? Here at Valuxxo we are firmly convinced that the right prevention combined with the right products, and a healthy lifestyle, are the best weapons to always carry with you.
