“The eye is the mirror of the soul” – Proverb
They say that the eyes are the gateways to our soul. They are where we hide our deepest emotions. And they are also among the first things people notice about us.
Sadly, they are also the first to show up signs of aging.
While none of us like the idea of getting old, not all sorts of wrinkles are signs of aging. Particularly wrinkles around the eyes may be signs of other problems rather than old age.
Here’s all you need to know about what causes them:
There’s a reason why they say smoking is harmful! And it’s not just related to your lungs! Smoking can do more damage than you think.
Research shows that smoking smokers are more likely to age quickly compared to their nonsmoking counterparts. Tobacco contains more than 3,000 chemical components that are not only harmful to your internal organs but your skin as well.
Since the skin is the largest organ of the body, it absorbs smoke from the air as well. So if you hang around a group of smokers but don’t smoke, you’re still putting yourself at risk.
How does tobacco affect your skin? It damages elasticity, texture and even our skin’s chemical balance.
The sun isn’t always “sunshine” and happiness. It has harmful UV rays that can damage your skin and even lead to skin cancer.
It can cause age spots and even patches on different parts of your skin. Make sure to always use a sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays.
Don’t be tempted to skip sunscreen when driving because even if you’re inside the car, your face is still exposed to the sun.
It can be tempting to squint when you can’t see anything. But make sure to stop yourself before it becomes a habit. When you squint, the corners of your eyes wrinkle. Your eyes aren’t used to the pressure added and the corners being squeezed.
You don’t want the skin of the area to stretch.
A Poor Diet
Research shows that the right amount of Vitamin C can effectively slow down the effects of aging. Your skin needs nutrients, just like the rest of your body needs food as fuel. Your diet can either lead to quick aging, or slow down the process.
Everything else is your choice.
