Three Things That Age Your Skin


We apply lotions, potions, and ointments to keep skin looking youthful and vibrant. The problem is that that factors outside of us contribute to aging the skin. We can control those destructive outside influences with very simple steps. Start by making positive changes to destructive body care and skin care habits.

Sun Exposure
The sun's harmful rays damage the outer layers of the skin and cause aging. Even a few minutes basking in the warmth of the sun might cause premature aging. Excess exposure to the sun's intense ultraviolet rays causes freckles, age spots, dry skin, and contributes to factors leading to skin cancer. Dermatologist warn patients to avoid excess exposure to the sun. Stay out of the sun at the sun's highest peak. Cover up with a high SPF sunscreen while outdoors. This is basic skin care rules and especially important for those with very fair skin.

Facial Contortions
I was watching a program, on a popular shopping channel, the other day about aging and beauty. The guest announced proudly that she performed facial exercises daily. She demonstrated a few of her facial exercises or facial contortions. Her mouth twisted and her jawline tensed. A scowl spread across her face. This struck me as a bit odd. Remember, facial muscles are very delicate. Those daily contortions might lead to permanent creases in the skin or wrinkles.

Smoking Cigarettes
Cigarette smoking is a dreadful habit that is difficult to break. Cigarette smoking is responsible for causing premature aging. The cigarettes are packed with nicotine. The nicotine in cigarettes speeds up the breakdown of skin cells and aging. Take a look at a friend who has smoked cigarettes for several years. Compare that friend with another friend who does not smoke cigarettes. The friend who smokes probably looks much older than your non-smoking friend. Smoking leads to extra wrinkles along with skin discoloration, and bad breath. Here's something to consider; Studies show that those who stop smoking noticed a dramatic change in their skin's appearance and their health
improved. Well, that is a very good reason to give up smoking!
