Aging takes its toll on the skin and this is a natural process.
Wrinkles begin to appear on the face in middle age and usually occur in the areas that are active during facial expressions.
As we age, the thickness of the skin decreases and its elasticity also starts to lose, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles.
But this is possible even in youth and it is due to some common habits of yours.
By controlling these habits, you can prevent premature wrinkles from appearing.
Do not try to protect yourself from sunlight
The ultraviolet rays of the sun cause wrinkles because they damage the skin.
Not making an effort to protect the skin from the sun can lead to wrinkles at a young age while also increasing the risk of cancer.
According to experts, use a hat while walking around in the sunlight while also taking the help of sunscreen.
If possible, avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight, especially between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., when ultraviolet rays are at their strongest.
Smoking is damaging to your skin and results in wrinkles appearing on the face at an early age, especially around the mouth.
So the simple solution is to avoid smoking.
Repetitive muscle movements
Repetitive muscle spasms also lead to facial wrinkles.
Normal facial expressions such as smiling can make wrinkles appear around the mouth and eyes.
The same is true of the forehead and other parts of the face.
Lack of sleep
Chronic lack of sleep results in people looking older prematurely.
One study discovered a link between lack of sleep and wrinkles.
In another study, it was reported that even just one night of disturbed sleep increases the risk of wrinkles.
As a result of sleeping on the side or stomach, wrinkles on the skin increase and wrinkles appear on the face.
This is because this sleeping pattern puts pressure on the skin and causes wrinkles to form.
A simple solution is to sleep on your back or using silk pillowcases can also reduce this risk.
Diet and exercise
Unhealthy habits such as eating a poor diet and spending too much time sitting also increase the risk of premature aging.
Diets high in fat and sugar have negative effects on skin texture.
Lack of exercise affects the oxygen supply to the skin, while the production of new cells and collagen, an important hormone, slows down, making wrinkles more likely.
Don’t take care of the skin
As we age, the skin becomes dry and sensitive, and if not taken care of, this process can begin prematurely.
