Avoid these 7 habits to stop aging
1. You eat a lot of sugar and fat
Foods rich in sugars and fat lead to premature aging. Sugar damages collagen formation and, as a result, reduces skin elasticity and creates wrinkles. The researches indicate that people who eat mostly fruits, vegetables and “good” fats but use a little sugar have fewer wrinkles than their peers who emphasize on oily and sweet foods.
2. You do not sleep enough
Only healthy and long enough sleep can bring a real shimmering complexion to the face. At night it reduces the production of the stress hormone – cortisol, which allows skin cells to regenerate peacefully. When sleep deprived, stress is increased and, in turn, more sebum is released, acne is activated.
3. You do not protect your skin properly from the sun
Sun is the most important cause of aging skin. Avoid direct impact not only during the summer but also during all other seasons so that brown spots, redness and wrinkles do not appear on your face. And in the city, face, neck, neckline, and hands should be protected with a suitable sun-protecting cream with SPF of 30 or higher. Even in confined spaces, ultraviolet rays penetrate the windows and can cause premature aging of the skin. Complement the sunscreen with cosmetic products rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C, caffeine and more.
4. You do not take care of your hands and neck
These are the most often neglected areas of the skin and are constantly exposed to sun, cold and environmental pollution. The skin in these places dries quickly and loses its elasticity. Use moisturizing creams and sunscreen products regularly. You can also use face creams.
5. You rinse dry sensitive skin with water
The water further desiccates the epidermis, so after use, the skin starts to age. It is best to clean the sensitive skin with a suitable nourishing and moisturizing cosmetic product that protects the top layer.
6. You use inappropriate products
Driven by advertising or friendly advice, we often buy inappropriate products. The use of excessively oily creams or oils on acne prone skin is a big mistake. For dry skin, too aggressive and drying cleaning products or highly flavored creams are completely contraindicated. A consultation with the dermatologist can help you understand what type of skin you have and how to adapt cosmetics to it.
7. You change creams too often
After one week of use of the cream you still do not see the result and you decide to change it – this misconception does not give the skin time to get the most benefit from the product because the optimal time is 6 weeks. For anti age creams we need to be even more patient – up to 3-4 months!
