​Top 6 External Factors That Cause Premature Aging of Your Facial Skin and How to Fight Them.

​Top 6 External Factors That Cause Premature Aging of Your Facial Skin and How to Fight Them.

1. Sun Exposure:  

About 80% of skin aging process is related to the amount of sunlight our skin is exposed to throughout our lifespan. Sun exposure causes appearance of wrinkles, age spots, reducing in skin elasticity and increasing the risk of skin cancer. When exposed to sun for long periods of time, skin becomes dried out, leathery, wrinkled and saggy. 

What can we do about it?

Try to avoid direct sunlight exposure during summer, use sunscreens with high protection and don’t expose yourself to sun for too long. Always apply a generous amount of UVA and UVB sunblock, even during winter and cloudy days. Use a daily moisturizer that can hydrate your skin and protect it from external environment. Our recommendation: Essential Protecting Complex offers the ideal blend of moisturizing, nutritious and protective ingredients - the best that nature can offer as a barrier between the skin and the environment. 

2. Smoking:

 Smoking causes premature wrinkles that typically appear on the sides of the eyes and above the upper lip. These so called smoking lines may appear 10-15 years before they appear among non-smokers. The reason for the premature wrinkles among smokers is the reduction of vitamin C level in their blood.  Smoking also causes blood vessels to constrict, resulting in decreased blood flow to skin. Smokers’ skin color becomes sallow or gray and appears lifeless.

What can we do about it?

This one is very easy and complicated at the same time: Simply, stop smoking! It is important to remember that second hand smoke can still have a negative impact on your skin, so if you live with smokers, have them smoke outside of your home.

3. Lack of sleep: 

They don’t call a good night rest “beauty sleep” for nothing! Too little sleep drains your body of needed rest and doesn’t allow skin to regenerate. Sleep deprivation can make you look and feel tired, cause dark circles and bags under eyes, and make skin saggy. 

What can we do about it?

Try to sleep for 8 hours every night. Don’t take caffeine drinks after noon and avoid eating at least 2 hours before bedtime. Apply all above mentioned in your daily routine, and we can give you one small but powerful secret weapon that can protect the fragile skin around the eyes with precise formulas, textures and active ingredients: Advanced Eye Serum.

4. Stress: 

On the surface stress and too much worrying cause frowning and over time face muscles “remember” that movement, causing lines and wrinkles. Moreover, prolonged emotional stress causes increased secretion of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline which accelerate aging processes.

What can we do about it?

There’s no easy “cure” for stress in the fast-paced lifestyle of today, but you should try and find your safe spots and activities that relaxes you: yoga, meditation, relaxing music, dance, reading books, horseback riding. 

5. Alcohol:

Too much alcohol causes damage to the skin texture and color and has considerable influence on the eye sockets. This happens due to the accumulation of toxic breakdown products in the deeper skin layers. At the same time alcohol will dehydrate your skin. Dry skin will get wrinkles faster and will look dull.

What can we do about it?

Simply don’t drink, or drink only on some occasions and not more than one or two glasses. Also try to drink water between your drinks.

6. Unbalanced eating habits:

Bad eating habits are source of many health problems, including premature skin aging. It is very important to avoid sugar, caffeine and junk food.  A diet rich in simple sugars and sweets causes the connective tissue of the skin to lose its elasticity.  On the other hand, protein is vital to the production of protein structures that build hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin fibers. Fruits and vegetables are the main source of antioxidants in our daily nutrition and these are very important to fight premature aging. 

What can we do about it?

Create healthy eating habits –  this one is essential for complete well-being of your body and mind. You know what we say: Eat healthy, live better, live longer!
