Wrinkle treatment and prevention

Wrinkles are treated from within, not so much topically.  Wrinkles occur when there is a loss of elastin in the skin.  This occurs with age because of the decrease in silica being absorbed from lack of stomach acidity.

Stomach acid naturally declines with age.  As the levels go down minerals are not absorbed as well, as well as some vitamins and proteins.  As stomach acid levels go down the body’s ability to generate stomach acid also declines.  This is because some of the nutrients needed to produce stomach acid (zinc, B6, B12 and folate) are dependent on sufficient stomach acid for absorption.

Other contributing factors to declining stomach acid include the use of antacids, acid blockers, baking soda, calcium oxide/hydroxide, magnesium oxide/hydroxide, alkaline waters, and calcium carbonate (coral, oyster shell, dolomite).

The lack of silica leads to a drop in elastin formation.  As elastin drops the skin stretches then sags creating the wrinkle.  The other important nutrients for elastin formation that should be supplemented are vitamin C, sulfur, and traces of copper and zinc.

It is also very important to stay hydrated, and to avoid dehydrating substances such as high protein, sugars, alcohol, and caffeine.

If you smoke you need to quit. Nicotine depletes vitamin C again leading to a loss of elastin.

I also recommend avoiding alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).  These acids chemically burn the skin, which can damage it.  AHAs will reduce the appearance of wrinkles by causing the skin to swell from the burning, which pulls the skin tight.  But this does not address the cause of the wrinkles.  And AHAs can burn off the upper layer of skin.  This is  dangerous though as this is a protective layer that helps to protect the lower layers from the sun and chemicals.

To help the skin topically I recommend a little squalane oil, which is also found in olive oil.
