THESE HABITS MAY LEAD TO EARLY WRINKLES

Do you raise your eyebrows more often? Well then this can be a problem for you in the near future. There are a few habits that you may be following which may lead to wrinkles on your face too early. Check out these habits and see if you if can change them for better. Sleeping on your stomach When you sleep on your stomach or on your sides, you tend to put pressure on your face. This can lead to breakdown of collagen, resulting in wrinkles. It’s preferable to sleep on your back, say experts. This position may not be easy to maintain in the beginning, but with time, it becomes easier. Squinting Squinting and highly animated facial expressions, such as raising your eyebrows and frowning, can also result in wrinkles. When you squint, your facial muscles contract. This squeezes your skin cells, resulting in loss of elasticity Sunexposure                                                                                                                  The biggest culprit for wrinkles is the sun. UV rays in sunlight can penetrate the deepest of skin layers and can destroy collagen, resulting in a loss of elasticity. How to avoid it? Always use a sunblock according to your skin type — and we mean even when you are driving or sitting by the window. Indirect exposure to sunrays can also cause wrinkles. Lack of sleep If you are sleep deprived, then your skin repair process slows down. The skin’s pH level is affected and so is its ability to remain hydrated. All of this leads to poor collagen formation, causing early appearance of wrinkles. Excessive use of beauty products Cosmetic products can help your skin, but their excessive use can cause more harm than good. They can cause irritation, redness, clogged pores, and what not. All of this can slow down collagen and sebum production, leading to premature wrinkles.
