Is this what I think it is? Is this a wrinkle? Some of us may have said this while looking into the mirror in the morning when we are putting on our make-up. Getting older comes with some great rewards such as being able to drive, drink alcohol, renting a car, and have credibility to start your own career; but it also comes with some bad as well, such as paying bills, bags underneath your eyes, your skin becoming dull, and wrinkles appearing. Well, no matter what we will always have to pay bills, yet there are ways to clear up those bags underneath your eyes, freshen your skin, and even get rid of your wrinkles. There are also different routines you can do to prevent all of these unwanted imperfections. Some of them don’t even require money being spent, just change to your daily schedule.
One of the biggest things that we tend to forget to do when we get older is sleep. Ok sometimes we don’t forget, we just don’t have enough time to get the recommended 8 hours of sleep each night. Yet,
not only does our mind and body need it, so does our skin. During the day our skin becomes a protection shield against nasty germs that want to get into our bodies. The skin is constantly protecting our other cells that make up the body. While we are sleeping our skin is repairing itself, just like a warrior would do in between battles. The way the skin repairs itself is by sending new skin cells to replace the old and damaged ones. If we don’t get the sleep that we need our skin will become tired and over worked which is why we get those dark under eye circles , dull looking skin and wrinkles. Also, lack of sleep can lead to stress. Stress can cause your skin to have many different problems – acne, and wrinkles or “worry lines”. So stop stressing and start sleeping – your body, mind, and skin will appreciate it.
Like I have mentioned in the Let’s Rejuvenate Your Skin article, the sun can also affect your skin and can cause it to age faster than you expected. Our skin has a love hate relationship with the sun. It loves it because it needs it for Vitamin D. It hates it because it can damage the skin cells due to UV damage. The top layer of your skin is doing its best to protect itself, but it comes down to how much melanin you have in your skin. Melanin protects the skin from UV rays, and the more exposure your skin gets, it will cause your skin to produce more melanin (UV protection) and that is what makes you tan. However, if you don’t have a lot of melanin the UV rays will fight pass the top layer and will burn your skin. As UV rays enter the skin cell it harbors small amounts of cancer. Peeling of the skin is your cells committing suicide and shedding off from your body to prevent these traces of cancer from harming any more cells in your body. The constant death of your skin cells is what causes your skin to become wrinkled as the epidermis becomes thinner and loses elasticity. So to avoid this wear sunscreen or sunblock when you know you are going to be in the sun for a long time!!
If you smoke this too may be the reason why your skin is becoming wrinkled. Smoking contains toxins which cut off the oxygen and nutrient supply to your skin. It will also cause your skin to dry out, and create age spots. It is the worst possible thing you can do to your skin and health. Drinking water however, is one of the best things you can do. Drinking water helps get rid of the toxins in your body and will help your skin over time.
