The Botox, used to flaunt a wrinkle less skin comes with a lot of risks. So, forget Botox. A new study has found out the key to staving off wrinkles, it seems, is far simpler – and less expensive. Skin scientists claim that a normal moisturizer is more than enough to smoother the face.

Scientists have found that dry skin is more sensitive to wrinkles than oily or normal skin type. In the first long-term study which measured the speed of wrinkle development.

Study experts found that women with well-hydrated facial skin develop persistent wrinkles slower than those with dry skin, reports The Daily Express.

The study reports that 28-year-old woman with dry skin, develop visible wrinkle which increases by 52 per cent by the time she reaches 36. On the other hand, wrinkles would increase by just 22 per cent at age 36 if she had well hydrated skin.

Dr Greg Hillebrand, Principal scientists of Olay, on his experiment of 122 women aged between 10 and 72 said, “The results suggest that the quality of the stratum corneum – the skin"s outer layer – can profoundly affect the rate at which expression or temporary lines will turn into persistent wrinkles.

“It stands to reason that women, and probably men, can dramatically delay the age of onset of persistent wrinkles by protecting their skin daily with an effective moisturizer and sunscreen from an early age, although it is never too late to nurture your skin and protect against wrinkles."
