Ageing is a fact of life however looking your age is not. Everyone wants to retain the youthful self from the inside out. If you want to have a flawless skin with great shine, then you need to focus on what you can control, such as what you eat, how much time you spend in the sun and other lifestyle factors that make up skin ageing.
It’s fun in the sun but UV rays are the number one reason for premature skin ageing. That’s why you must wear sunscreen every day whether you’re inside or out, 365 days a year no matter it rains or shines.
Beyond its known links to cancer, lung and heart disease, smoking is also associated with premature skin ageing. Tobacco smoke causes oxidative stress so that insufficient oxygen is supplied to the skin. Oxygen starved cell leads to dull, tired-looking skin. Also, collagen-destroying enzymes ramp up when your skin is exposed to tobacco smoke. So just quit smoking today!
Of course, our faces are meant to move but repetitive face movements like laughing, smiling, yawning and squinting can create lines and wrinkles in the face. So you will want to have a smooth face, avoid facial expressions that are unnecessary.
Did you know sleeping may be the second most prominent cause of wrinkles? One surprising cause of premature wrinkling on the face is the position of the body during sleep. For example if you crunch your face against a pillow, you can get sleep lines and eventually they will become wrinkles. Though a lot of people found it difficult, it’s actually the best to sleep on your back, you can also prevent pillowcase induced wrinkles by upgrading from cotton to silk or satin pillowcase.
