We all expect some wrinkles as we grow older. Your skin loses elasticity and gets fine lines, it’s natural. However, this process can be sped up (and slowed down) with lots of other factors.
There’s no surprise that one of the main factors that cause wrinkles is exposure to the sun. The rays cause sunburn which can lead to premature wrinkles and ageing skin.
So keeping out of the sun and away from sun beds, will not only protect you from skin cancer but will also keep you looking young, win-win. It’s also important to wear SPF every time you are exposed to the sun.
Sometimes we forget how much the environment we live in, can affect our skin. Be sure to cleanse your face at night, to help limit damage to your skin caused by pollution.
Feeling stressed can have a significant impact on your health and wellbeing. Being stressed increases cortisol levels which reduces the ability for the skin to hold moisture. Stress affects the support structure which stops the skin sagging and can cause wrinkles earlier on. If possible try to keep tension to a minimum by switching off, going for a walk, taking up yoga.
Lack of sleep
We all know how important rest is for our wellbeing, but it also helps contribute to keeping your skin. During sleep toxins are flushed out the body, why do you think it’s called beauty sleep? If you don’t get enough sleep, your PH balance is altered, and this affects the skins ability to keep skin hydrated, so be sure to get the recommended 6-8 hour per night.
Overeating sugar will cause the skin to have premature ageing. Sugar weakens collagen and elastin and will lead to an appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So it is even more critical to maintain a healthy, balanced diet.
Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise! Having dry skin is more sceptical of wrinkles as the surface can lose some of its scaffolding. Make sure to moisturise morning and night. Also invest in a good quality eye cream, as the delicate skin around the ideas is incredibly vulnerable.
Lack of key ingredients
Just like overeating sugar, having a deficit of the critical components needed by your skin to repair itself can lead to faster ageing. Make sure you are getting the things your body needs, we suggest taking Skin, Hair & Nails which has been scientifically formulated to help promote healthy skin.
