Aging is a normal part of life. As we grow older, the body undergoes several changes.
The skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner and more delicate. This leads to the formation of wrinkles – creases, folds or ridges on the skin.
Wrinkles can make you look tired and older. But, contrary to popular belief, wrinkles don’t just affect older people. In fact, wrinkles can affect people of every age.
What Causes Wrinkles?
As we age, a sharp decline in the production of collagen leads to the sagging of skin.
Once the skin starts sagging, signs of aging, such as eye wrinkles and dark spots appear on the body.
The good news is that you can take a few simple steps to delay the formation of eye wrinkles.
Let’s start with the basics. One cannot overemphasize the significance of sun protection.
Always wear a good quality sunscreen with a minimum SPF factor of 30. Apply the sunscreen all over your face, neck and hands.
Even if it’s raining or cold outside, apply sunscreen before heading out. Sun protection is important to prevent premature aging. Along with using sunscreen, wear sunglasses for protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays. Excessive sun damage can speed up the aging process of the skin and cause wrinkles.
Smoking is bad for your skin. Cigarettes contain more than 4,000 chemicals that can damage collagen and elastin in the skin. Consequently, chronic smoking leads to wrinkles and age spots.
Sleep deprivation can take a toll on your skin. From puffy eyes to wrinkles, lack of sleep can accelerate the aging process. You need at least 8 hours of sleep to rejuvenate cells.
Take Care Of Your Body
Your diet affects your skin. Consuming a balanced diet and at least eight glasses of water each day can help fight wrinkles.
Stick To A Proper Skincare Routine
Finally, as people age, it becomes essential for them to follow a proper skin care routine. Make sure you choose gentle products that will not cause skin irritation and suit your skin type.
