4 ways you are ageing your own skin
4 ways you are ageing your own skin!
Ageing is a fact of life. But did you know that certain lifestyle factors can contribute to the skin's ageing process every single day? Here are four easy changes to make that you may not be aware of that is causing your skin to age faster.
The sun is responsible for the majority of the visible ageing on the skin. It is the primary cause of skin pigmentation, wrinkles, sun spots, reduced elasticity and the degradation of skin texture. We recommend using an SPF daily in your moisturiser and makeup. We love ASI Rejuvenating Day Cream and Mineral Radiance Mineral Powder.
The chemicals in tobacco attack collagen and elastin. That is pretty bad news as collagen and elastin are what gives the skin its strength and elasticity. Smoking also deprives the body of oxygen and depletes the body of Vitamins. This will severely accelerate the ageing process.
Leaving makeup on
Free radicals from the environment (often in the form of pollution) remain on the skin if you do not clean your face properly at night. Free radicals cause collagen breakdown over time, which results in the development of fine lines and prematurely aged skin.
Sleep deprivation is linked to ageing skin. A lack of sleep affects the skin's ability to recover from environmental stressors we are exposed to throughout the day. This can lead to uneven skin tone, redness, lines and wrinkles.
