Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, but they often occur prematurely. In this case, the actions you take on a daily basis could be contributing to your fine lines and premature wrinkles. While this isn’t a complete list of wrinkle-causing habits, the following can have a negative affect on your skin if not avoided.
While sunglasses definitely look cool, they also protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Sunglasses save you from squinting, which increases the fine lines (also known as crow’s feet) at the corner of the eyes. When shopping for eye protection, look for sunglasses that block 100% of the sun’s UV rays. And don’t be fooled by overcast days, the sun can still cause damage from behind the clouds.
Rubbing your eyes can mean a lot of things, none of them good. It might mean that you’re bothered by allergies, which cause itchiness and watering. It can also mean that you’re suffering from eye strain, which occurs after spending too much time staring at digital screens. Regardless of the underlying reason, rubbing your eyes pulls on your skin, which can damage its elasticity if you do it constantly. Take breaks from phone and computer screens when you can. If you have allergies, over-the-counter medication and nasal spray can control your symptoms.
Sunscreen wards off harmful UVA and UVB rays, both of which are known to cause skin cancer. Sunscreen also reduces the sun’s aging effect when worn on your skin consistently. The sun depletes collagen from your skin, which impacts its elasticity and youthful appearance. Much like sunglasses, sunscreen should be worn all the time, even when it’s overcast.
There are lots of good reasons to sip your drink through a straw. Maybe you’re particularly proud of your lipstick look and don’t want to mess it up. Your dentist may have also told you that drinking through a straw will prevent your teeth from being stained by coffee or tea. Despite these benefits, straws can also cause lines to form around your mouth from the constant lip-pursing. While an occasional sip isn’t an issue, try to cut back on straw usage if it’s a daily occurrence.
Even if you eat healthy and exercise, missing out on sleep every night can impact your health. It can also impact your appearance by causing dark, puffy undereye circles, a pallid complexion, and drooping skin. Most adults should aim for seven to nine hours of sleep each night to feel well and rested the next morning. The right amount of sleep will also give your skin a healthy glow.
