    Wrinkles are a condition of normal aging, but you can try GTF chromium to minimize them. GTF stands for glucose tolerance factor, a complex molecule that has the mineral chromium. GTF chromium is found naturally in the body and works by making insulin more efficient. Insulin is a hormone that helps sugar move into the cells from the blood stream. GTF chromium helps insulin work its best and may aid in fighting wrinkles by controlling blood sugar.

    Blood sugar in the body can damage body tissues and contribute to aging. Blood sugar crystals are involved in glycation reactions: glycation reactions are basically reactions where the sugar melds with protein in our body tissues (like in blood vessels, for example) and breaks them down. This reaction creates advanced glycation end products (aptly called “AGES”) and is a major player in the aging of our tissues—and ages your body the way bread gets crusty. The more AGES you have, the more you get “crusty” and age.

    GTF chromium helps control the sugar spikes that can damage the vessels that keep your skin looking young and vital. GTF chromium is naturally found in the food brewers yeast. An optimal dose of GTF chromium is 500 micrograms once or twice a day. As a side note, more women tend to stop smoking when they learn smoking greatly increase wrinkles.

    Wrinkle creams can range in price from $8 to $80—and there are even some that top out at $400. But when tested, the $400 cream was no better than an $8 one. Beyond that, results when using any anti-wrinkle cream leave something to be desired, especially if your wrinkles are deep set. Rather than trying to reverse the effects of time, try preventing wrinkles in the first place. Use sunscreen and drink plenty of water—these are two of the best wrinkle fighters, and they’re not nearly as expensive!

    Sagging skin is primarily the cause of loss of elasticity and the aging process. The amount of collagen is reduced and the elastin in diminished with aging. This is one reason why so many skin care products are composed of collagen or induce collagen formation. The gravitational descent of the skin and underlying muscle create major facial skin laxity. The most common aging skin problems include prominence of the nasolabial fold, jowl formation, and the turkey neck (platysmal banding under the chin). The goals of plastic surgeons include tightening these areas and enhancing volume to the facial regions showing atrophy.

    Here are a few good facts that people should bear in mind:

    • As we age, lack of sleep affects us more deeply and shows up more prominently on our faces (which explains why dark circles, fine lines, and pallid complexions aren’t a problem in our twenties despite the late nights, but can be later on).

    • Sleep induces the production of collagen, a key ingredient in firm, youthful skin.

    • The skin’s capacity to hold water is enhanced by sleep, thereby keeping skin moisturized and supple.

    • Sleep deprivation can sting the immune system, leaving one vulnerable to rashes and skin-related problems.

    • Growth hormone peaks during deep sleep, and this hormone plays a central role in initiating cellular repair.
