We all want to look as young and vibrant as we feel, but everyday life can sometimes get in the way. In fact, you may not even realize that your basic routine is contributing to wrinkles! Here are some ways to get ahead of the behaviors that trigger signs of facial aging and then minimize the signs you may already be showing.
1. Drink Plenty of water.
If you keep a water bottle with you you’ll be much more likely to do this! Dehydration can make your skin look drier, duller and older! So drink lots of water to help flush toxins from your body and keep you healthy and hydrated.
2. Make sleep a priority, not a luxury.
This is the time your body repairs and rejuvenates itself and a lack of sleep can trigger stress hormones that will do a number on your skin so if you have to pencil in bedtime on your calendar, do it!
3. Sun protection.
Spring is here, which means warmer weather, vacation planning and … sun protection! While we’ve heard about the importance of shielding skin from harmful UV rays, did you know that sun exposure is a top cause of wrinkles around the mouth? A recent poll showed 77% of healthcare professionals, including dermatologists and plastic surgeons, couldn’t agree more so make sure to always protect your skin before you head out for the day.
These 3 aren’t the only causes we should be worried about. Whether it’s sipping your favorite beverage through a straw or bottle, smiling or laughing with friends, or smooching with your significant other, every day activities can contribute to facial aging. While we all want to continue with our normal routines and get our daily dose of enjoyable moments, no one wants to compromise the way we look. Which brings us to my final tip!
