No matter how many creams, serums with anti-wrinkle action you use daily on the face, no matter how properly and consistently you take care of the skin with cleansing, exfoliation, and all the relevant steps of grooming, you make a hole in the water, if you do not take care of good body health you in general.
Some mistakes, some bad, almost daily habits sabotage any effort you make to prevent the signs of aging. The result is that you come to terms with wrinkles prematurely, with a dull, tired look that has now taken the place of your once fresh appearance.
This premature aging can not be combated with care products, as the damage has been caused from the inside out. The deep lines of expression result from the fact that your body ages before its time because you do not take care of it as you should, making mistakes in the way you live without calculating their not so long-term consequences.
Mistakes that cause premature aging
Because premature aging is not limited to the formation of wrinkles around the eye area and in the face in general, we record seven basic mistakes that you make almost every day—the age you from the inside out.
You exaggerate with sunbathing
Sun exposure is harmful to the skin and should always be done after using sunscreen with a high protection index. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. These are known as well as the fact that tanning causes damage to the skin, from photoaging to burns, melanoma, and cancer.
You consume large amounts of sugar
It is not enough to eat fruits and vegetables to have healthy, beautiful, radiant skin and a strong body. If you overdo it with sugar consumption in foods and beverages, you destroy all your good intentions.
According to research from the University of San Francisco, regular consumption of soft drinks and foods that contain high levels of sugar accelerates cellular aging, which can affect the development of metabolic diseases.
You do not exercise
Although many insist on a lifestyle where regular exercise is off schedule, physical inactivity leads to the mechanisms that keep the body healthy in lethargy and the skin healthy and fresh. It affects flexibility, mobility, strength, endurance, fitness, and appearance, especially as you get older.
You sleep badly
You know the accessories of a bad night’s sleep: dark circles, bags, expression lines, tired face. That is all that you can avoid when you get enough sleep, from 6 to 8 hours every night, and quality, without annoying breaks in the night.
Good, quality sleep refreshes the spirit, relaxes the body, and rejuvenates the skin. How; As you sleep, the skin cells regenerate, the production of collagen increases, and therefore the aging process of the face slows down: that is, the formation of wrinkles.
Anxiety eats you up
Stress is a source of many evils. One of them is premature aging. Stress can activate several neurological mechanisms that end up in the skin, resulting in skin damage.
It also can cause premature graying of the hair, as it disrupts the production of melanin, which colors the hair follicles.
You drink less water
One of the daily mistakes you make and age without wanting your body prematurely is not to take care to hydrate it from the inside out. You dehydrate your body and skin by not drinking plenty of water – at least six to eight glasses a day.
When the skin is dehydrated, it loses its radiance and firmness, while dryness makes it look dull, tired, and full of wrinkles, especially in the eye area.
In addition to the incalculable damage it causes to the lungs and heart function, smoking accelerates the aging process in the face.
According to a study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, smokers’ upper eyelids tend to fall out faster than non-smokers and form lines of expression in the eyes and around the mouth due to the frequent movement of the sucker.
