6 Anti-Aging Myths Busted: How to REALLY Improve the Appearance of Wrinkles

6 Anti-Aging Myths Busted: How to REALLY Improve the Appearance of Wrinkles

Searching for ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face? 

There are so many anti-aging myths circulating around, making it difficult to know what you should actually be doing. To help clear things up, read on as Venofye shares six of the biggest anti-aging misconceptions out there, along with the alternate steps that you should be taking if you’re hoping for a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion.

Myth 1: You Don’t Need to Wear Sunscreen Unless It’s Sunny


Let’s start with one of the most damaging anti-aging myths out there; the misconception that you only need to wear sunscreen when the sun’s out. 

It’s common knowledge that the sun speeds up skin aging. In fact, 80-90% of the wrinkles that you develop can be attributed to sun exposure. With these facts becoming increasingly widespread, more and more people are now paying attention to sun protection…but only when it’s actually sunny.

Truth is, even on a dull and dreary winter’s day, UV rays are still present. They’re pretty much always around. Sure, they may not be quite as strong when clouds are low and heavy, but scattered or broken clouds can actually cause more UV exposure than if you were under a cloud-free sky.

This is why SPF is a must at all times, no matter the season or the weather. If you often forget to apply SPF, the Venofye Orchard Bee Brilliance Cream SPF 30 will make life a little easier. Apply this in the mornings instead of applying a moisturizer and it will protect against UV rays for a couple of hours. Then, keep it with you and top-up throughout the day. Not only will you be keeping your complexion safe from the aging effects of UV rays, but the antioxidants in this cream will also help to reverse the appearance of aging.

Myth 2: Your Skincare Routine Needs to Include Retinol

Blossom Bee Vitamin C Serum

Whether you’re reading a magazine article, a blog post, or scrolling through social media, just about everyone who dishes out anti-aging advice preaches about how essential retinol is. However, while there’s no arguing with its efficacy, retinol is absolutely not a must-have. You’re not going to suddenly experience an onslaught of wrinkles just because you aren’t using the ingredient.

In fact, in some cases, retinol can do more harm than good. It’s a pretty potent ingredient and is known for causing irritation in dry and sensitive skin types. Even if your skin tolerates it at first, accidentally over-using it could lead to rawness and damage, which will only exacerbate your wrinkles.

The good news is that there are plenty of alternative ingredients out there. Retinyl palmitate, for example, is a form of vitamin A, just like retinol. It takes a little longer for results to be seen but it’s a much gentler ingredient. You can start using it daily straight away and won’t have to deal with the skin purging that retinol commonly causes. 

You’ll find retinyl palmitate in the Venofye Blossom Bee Vitamin C Serum. Speaking of vitamin C, this is another ingredient worth looking into if you can’t or don’t want to use retinol. Research shows that regular use of the vitamin can significantly decrease the appearance of wrinkling. It will also leave your skin feeling much smoother and softer.

Myth 3: The More You Wash Your Face, the Fewer Wrinkles You’ll Have

There’s no denying that keeping your face clean is important. Every day, it will come into contact with dirt, pollutants, and other harmful particles. Plus, your skin itself also produces impurities, from excess sebum to dead skin cells, none of which should be left to linger.

If you don’t cleanse all of this away regularly, the first thing that you’ll notice is a change in your complexion. It will start to take on a dull and rough finish, with acne breakouts becoming more prevalent. In the long term, all of those impurities will take their toll on the aging process. They’ll trigger free radical damage, causing your skin to age faster than it should.

So, with that in mind, surely cleansing your face as much as possible will help you to keep wrinkles away?

Unfortunately, no. Many people don’t realize that over-cleansing can also be a major problem. It will strip away your skin’s protective barrier, leaving it even more vulnerable to environmental irritants. 

How much is too much when it comes to cleansing?

Ideally, you should be cleansing your skin twice a day. Once in the evenings, to remove the day’s dirt, and then once again in the mornings to clear away any sebum and bacteria that have built up overnight. Even if your skin type is oily, avoid cleansing more often than this.

Of course, it’s also worth keeping in mind that your cleanser of choice can cause over-cleansing too. Avoid harsh formulas and, instead, opt for gentler blends that will cleanse without damaging, just like the Venofye Blossom Bee Clarifying Cream Cleanser. It’s a lush formula that will keep your skin moisturized while it gets to work, cleansing your skin without causing any potential problems.

Myth 4: You Don’t Need to Worry About Wrinkles Until They Actually Appear

Iron Bee Boosting Serum

Ever heard the phrase ‘prevention is better than cure’? That’s exactly why this anti-aging myth needs to be busted. Sure, the thought of aging may not be at the front of your mind until you’ve noticed your first fine lines, but this doesn’t mean that your skincare routine shouldn’t be geared toward preventing the visibility of aging as much as possible.

Once wrinkles appear, then this is a sign that your skin cells have already undergone damage. Sure, the appearance of this damage can be fixed, but that takes time and knowledge. Use the wrong products or care for your skin incorrectly and your wrinkles will only deepen.

Your time would be much better spent delaying their arrival as much as possible. The more vitamins and antioxidants you include in your skincare routine, the more you’ll be able to prevent the appearance of creases. 

This is why we always recommend the Venofye Iron Bee Boosting Serum to anyone who is trying to maintain a youthful complexion. Not only does it contain vitamin C, which we’ve already discussed above, but it’s also loaded with a number of other ingredients that will help to keep your skin looking smooth, firm, and wrinkle-free. From collagen and peptides to sodium hyaluronate and bee venom, it’s an action-packed blend that works wonders at keeping the visibility of wrinkles at bay.

Myth 5: Nighttime Skincare Matters More Than Daytime Skincare

Apitoxin Collagen Cream

Do some anti-aging research and you’ll find that general advice recommends having two separate skincare routines; one for the day and one for the night. Most of this advice will also tell you to save your potent actives for nighttime use. Why? Because this is when your skin cells are working on repairing damage and regenerating, meaning that they’ll be able to put the ingredients to better use. Evenings are also when skin permeability increases, allowing your skin to absorb more of the products that you apply.

All of this has led many people to believe that their nighttime skincare routine is more important than their daytime routine. As a result, they pour all of their energy and money into their evening regimen, leaving their daytime one lacking.

However, in reality, your daytime skincare routine is just as important. Sure, your skin may not be focusing on recovering from damage during the day, in the way that it does at night, but if your daytime routine involves preventing visible damage in the first place, your skin cells won’t have to work quite so hard at night.

During the day, your skin cells concentrate on keeping your complexion protected from environmental damage. Your morning skincare routine should support this, giving your skin all that it needs to do so.

How? For starters, with sunscreen, which we’ve already discussed above. Antioxidants can help too by preventing the appearance of free radical damage. We love the Venofye Apitoxin Collagen Cream for this. It’s brimming with ingredients that will keep your skin feeling protected all day long. At the same time, it will also deeply hydrate your skin, ensuring that it glows and looks healthy throughout the day.

Myth 6: You Should Buy Skincare Products Designed For Your Age

Wrinkle Corrector

Some anti-aging products may display certain age ranges on their packaging, leading people to believe that they need to pick skincare products that have been designed specifically for their age group. However, that’s not how skincare works, especially when dealing with the appearance of wrinkles…

Everyone’s skin ages at a different rate. Your gender, diet, location, and lifestyle habits will all influence this. This is why some people manage to reach the later stages of their lives with very few wrinkles while others at the same age have a face full of lines.

This is also why you shouldn’t pick skincare products based solely on your age. Instead, you should be choosing skincare products that have been created for the specific skin concerns that you’re experiencing. If tackling the appearance of wrinkles is your main goal, try some of the products that we’ve mentioned above. The Blossom Bee Advanced Wrinkle Corrector would also be a great choice if you’re hoping to see some instant results in your complexion. 

Of course, wrinkles aren’t the only skin concern to arise with aging. If you’ve noticed dark spots, look for products tailored to help with this. Meanwhile, puffy eyes and dark circles will need dedicated products too. When it comes to all of these skin concerns, your age is just a number. Pay attention to what your own skin actually needs and then look for products that can provide that.


People are often so eager to banish their wrinkles as quickly as possible that they end up following incorrect advice. Unfortunately, this can often make things worse. If you’ve been believing any of the anti-aging myths that we’ve discussed above, it’s time to make a few changes. Follow our tips and you should start to see some big improvements in your complexion, with the appearance of wrinkles soon becoming a problem of the past!
