It is better to use body butter or a massage cream that contains shea butter. If you can find lotion with retinoid, it’ll help you in reversing aging process as retinoid is a wonderful firming agent.

The Warrior yoga poses are considered extremely beneficial in toning the skin over your knee. You can also perform other exercises such as low sit-ups and squats.
Knee-lifts – Named as being the most beneficial in reducing the appearance of wrinkles in the knees. It comes at no cost as it is a form of exercise that you can do wherever you are. Knee-lifts endows the knees with nourishment. It is done by increasing the circulation and lymphatic drainage of the legs. This procedure catalyzes cellular metabolism which results in firming the skin that surrounds the knee.
Sunscreen – Additionally, as evidenced in research in recent years, excess sun exposure to the skin leaves the skin defenseless to UV rays. When skin is directly exposed to the sun, it becomes susceptible to wrinkling, a change in texture and possibly cancer.
In seasons or climates of warmer weather, it is certainly tempting to wear lighter or less clothes to stay cool. It is recommended that sunscreen should be applied to all types of skin, especially with excessive exposure to the sun. All of the above are tips to help you avoid developing ninkles.
