How To Prevent Face Wrinkles When Losing Weight

  Lose weight gradually:

Most experts recommend losing only 453 grams to 2 kilograms in a week. Rapid weight loss using diet and harsh cleansers can cause many problems for you and affect your skin health. This will affect your overall success in losing weight.

Build strong muscles:

Replace your body fat with muscle mass. To do this, you need to focus on strength training. It would help if you replaced the fat you want to lose with muscle. When your underlying muscles are firm and tight, it makes you have firm skin and prevents it from sagging.

 Building solid and robust muscles tightens the skin and helps burn more calories.

You can use dumbbells, different exercise machines, or weights, depending on your choice. It is better to do strength training four days a week.

 In the meantime, devote 2-3 days a week to hard and high-intensity training to increase your metabolism and build muscle mass. In order to get better results, combine this program with appropriate and sufficient protein.

 Eating meat and other protein foods can make you stronger and stronger.

Get more sun protection:

If you plan to exercise outdoors, it is better not to be overexposed to sunlight. The sun’s ultraviolet rays can destroy the skin’s collagen. Do your walks and runs early in the morning. Use sunscreens that are labeled “broad spectrum.” Such sunscreens can protect your skin from ultraviolet rays.

 Wear appropriate clothes. There are various clothes in the market that can protect you from the harmful rays of the sun.


Use healthy and nutritious food:

Fill your plate with colorful vegetables and fruits. These foods contain nutrients that are very good for skin health. The presence of vitamin A or lycopene in vegetables and fruits can be very beneficial for skin health.

Research shows that antioxidants in vegetables and fruits can protect human skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. These antioxidants are found in tomatoes, red peppers, and other vegetables. In the meantime, green leafy vegetables and citrus fruits have a lot of vitamin C, which helps build collagen.

The two essential substances that keep the skin plump and elastic are collagen and elastin.

 Be sure to use foods rich in protein. Cottage cheese, milk, legumes, soy cheese (tofu), beans, seeds, nuts, and fish contain ingredients like collagen and elastin, as well as oils to help maintain healthy skin.

Use the suitable creams and serums:

Although these items cannot perform miracles for your skin, topical products, if used regularly, can accelerate collagen growth in the skin and improve its appearance. A dermatologist can prescribe retinoid creams or gels such as Retin-A.

You can look for serums that contain epidermal growth factors that stimulate skin-deep fibroblast and collagen production.

Do not smoke to prevent skin sagging:

Quit smoking. Every cigarette you light can make your skin looser and less firm. Exposure to cigarette smoke can also increase the level of inflammatory proteins in the skin and decrease the level of collagen. This also causes the skin to sag and create various wrinkles in it.

See a specialist doctor:

You want to see a dermatologist when you lose weight. However, a short outpatient visit can detect different skin areas with sagging and wrinkles and treat them early. You can ask a dermatologist about radio frequency devices that can expand collagen fibers.

These devices can improve your appearance by expanding collagen and stimulating the production of new collagen.

Drink more water to prevent skin sagging:

Water is the best option for skin rejuvenation. Loss of body water can also damage its cells. It is better to drink an adequate amount of water daily.

Pay attention to your body’s needs for water and fluids.

 Water is one of the essential components in maintaining the elasticity of the skin. Remember that hydration comes from food and drink.


Your skin is made up of cells. Like all cells in your body, skin cells are made of water. With water, this vast organ will function at its best. If your skin does not receive enough water, the skin will have less flexibility and elasticity.

Take care of your skin.

Nourish and care for your skin. Daily exfoliation can help remove dead skin cells and increase blood circulation, making the skin healthy and fresh. A warm bath with special salts and minerals can improve skin tone.

 Skin-firming creams with herbal ingredients and compounds such as aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, yeast extract, soy protein, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin A can help hydrate and increase collagen production and elastin in the skin.


A few other things you can do to take care of your skin include:


  • Avoiding harsh detergents (such as soaps, shampoos, and dishwashing liquids with sulfate compounds)
  • We are limiting exposure to the sun and avoiding tanning and tanning methods.
  • Not smoking and avoiding other types of tobacco
  • Minimizing body contact with hot and chlorinated water


Pay attention to the mentioned points for the health and beauty of your skin after losing weight.
