6 HABITS THAT MAKE US AGE
6 non-obvious enemies of youth
Everyone knows about what can accelerate skin aging: a love for tanning, alcohol and smoking. But, it turns out, that not only bad habits can lead to the appearance of early wrinkles, but also quite harmless or those that seem so at first glance. We will tell you about them in this article.
Despite the fact that the cocktail tube protects our teeth enamel from staining with dark drinks, you should not drink from it too often. The regular lip compression leads to the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth, heavy smokers show the same problem. Of course, the love to cocktail tubes is a much more innocent thing than the nicotine addiction, but it can also harm the youth of the skin.
CONTACT LENSES WEARING
Even if you master the technique of putting on and removing contact lenses, it is unlikely that you can avoid contact with the thin and delicate skin around the eyes. Namely, this regular mechanical action leads to the appearance of wrinkles in this delicate area. If glasses are not your option, be sure to buy a good cream and do not neglect patches.
SLEEP ON ONE OF YOUR SIDE OR ON YOUR STOMACH
If you constantly sleep on one of your side or on your stomach, you can get not only funny pillow prints on your cheeks, which pass soon, but also unwanted wrinkles on your face, neck and decolletage zone. This will be especially noticeable with age, when the skin begins to lose collagen. That's why, cosmetologists and dermatologists recommend sleeping on your back. If this position does not suit you, pay attention to your pillow: give preference to silk bed linen, it allows you to avoid unnecessary skin friction on the pillow surface and will help keep you young.
LONG-TERM USE OF THE COMPUTER
We spend most of our time alone with our gadgets: whether it's a computer, a smartphone screen, or a tablet. Of course, all these smart machines simplify our lives very much, but they do a lot of damage to our beauty. In particular, the delicate neck skin. Cosmetologists even have a special term "IT specialist's neck", which has lost tone, with deep wrinkles on the border with the chin. To avoid such trouble, regularly do face exercises, massage the vulnerable area and make sure that the angle between the neck and the chin line while working on the computer is equal to 90 degrees.
With the cold weather, central heating batteries and other heating devices become one of the main skin enemies. They seriously dry the skin and provoke its premature aging. However, you don't need to be frozen to avoid this trouble: just make sure that your skin does not dry out, drink plenty of water and keep a moisturizer on hand.
In the fight for a slim body, many exclude all fat from their menu. And in vain! It is important to remember that olive oil, fish and nuts contain fatty acids that are responsible for the health and youth of not only our skin, but also the body as a whole: they help to absorb vitamins and nutrients, are powerful antioxidants, prevent dryness and support the protective functions of the epidermis.
