8 Bad Habits That Makes the Skin Ages Faster

Our skin is the most delicate part of our body. Thus, it’s important that we know how we should take care of it.

One fact of reality here. No matter what we do, as we get older.. our skin will experience natural aging.

The bad news? Well, there are things that makes skin aging faster to occur..


1Sun Exposure. On a daily basis, we need to be exposed to the sun to get Vitamin D for a maximum of 15 minutes. Remember, the sun can cause discolored skin, sun spots, spider veins and skin cancer. Make a habit of applying sunscreen with SPF 30 UVA/UVB daily before going outside, facing the computer, or before watching television. Still, even with sunscreen on, do cover up.. wear a jacket, have an umbrella ready at all times, you’ll never know when ultraviolet rays might hit you.. – better be safe than sorry, right?

2One Sided Sleepers. It is what they call sleep lines, when you sleep one side of your face. As your face lies down your pillow – WRINKLES ARE BEING FORMED! You can prevent this by sleeping on your back. Not only it makes your face clean, it helps straightens your back, too for good and better posture. Remember, the better posture you have, the more you’ll look slimmer, too!

3Smoking Habits. The word smoking is already bad enough, need I even say more? It causes wrinkles around the mouth area, it depletes the skin from Vitamin C, preventing our skin to look healthy and it causes our skin to turn yellowish. It causes bad breath, I wouldn’t want to kiss someone who smells like an ashtray.. I don’t, would you? Enough of this, just stop smoking, period!

4Gravity. Believe it or not, it is beyond our control. Gravity would constantly pull our skin down, which results to sagging.

5Alcohol Drinkers. Alcohol does not just cause our skin to dryness, it depletes our body from water and adds toxins in our system. Now that you think about it, do name me one person who has beautiful skin – and an alcoholic at the same time.

6Pollution. Pollution is enough said. The chemicals and toxins in the environmental air that we are in will always be the cause of our skin damage. Always protect your skin and don’t forget to cleanse it at night before you sleep. Wearing a sunscreen and make-up can also act as a shield against these harsh conditions – so who said that make-ups and cosmetics are only for flirty women? YOU NEED THIS!

7Cold Weather. A cold weather can cause your skin to have dryer skin, and the dry your skin is – the more it will age faster because of the skin’s lack of moisture. Wrinkles will start to form if you don’t moisturize properly.

8Stress. When you experience stress, you tend to frown, which causes disappointment lines in your face, and this will make you look old. Calm yourself down, relax, have fun – think positive and don’t stress yourself too much!
