Getting old isn’t everyone’s favorite, especially when your skin starts to show your age and make you appear older. And while you may be doing whatever you can to prevent them from appearing (you wear your sunscreen and don’t smoke) here they are anyway across your face for everyone to see. But did you know that there are subtle, everyday habits that may be contributing to your wrinkles as well? Here are a few habits that allow wrinkles to sneak their way on to your face:
Excessive Face Scrubbing: When you are washing your face, be gentle with your skin. If you are scrubbing your skin too hard and using a harsh facewash with chemicals in it, the combination of both could result in wrinkles.
Applying Products and Makeup: When you are putting on makeup, try to use products that glide easily onto your skin. Tugging and pulling can be too hard on your skin.
Sipping on a Straw: If you have a daily straw habit, that repetitive movement could cause wrinkles. Over time, you will notice lines and wrinkles around your lips. Try to ditch the straw to ditch the habit.
Squinting: We all know that squinting is the main cause for crow’s feet. To avoid the feet and to protect that delicate fine skin around your eyes, wear sunglasses. Your skin and eyes will thank you for that.
Belly or Side Sleeping: When you are sleeping at night and your face has contact with your pillow, it is pulling and stretching your skin. If you could, try sleeping on your back to avoid the face to pillow contact.
Stress: We all know that stress can have multiple negative effects in your life. When you are stressed, you tend to wear that expression on your face. Try your best to let go of those stresses and things in your life that make you frown or furrow your brows. Your face (and your life) will notice the big change.
