The first thing you can do to reduce facial fine lines and wrinkles is to prevent them in the first place by using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily, not smoking, and making other smart lifestyle choices.

Once you have fine lines and wrinkles, there are many ways to diminish them, if you choose to do so. Start by applying a moisturizer to your face, which can plump up fine lines and wrinkles, making them less noticeable. Moisturizers that contain ingredients such as retinol, alpha hydroxy acids, and salicylic acid also exfoliate the skin while hydrating it, which helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).

Your dermatologist may also suggest a prescription anti-aging cream, or in-office anti-aging treatments to rejuvenate skin. Discuss your options with a qualified professional like a dermatologist.
