Say No to Smoking and Drinking

Smoking and the (over)consumption of alcohol has many detrimental health effects. One of them is its negative impact on the skin. Alcohol can lead to dehydration and leaking in the capillaries under our skin. After a heavy night of drinking, the liquid is 'soaked' in our tissue, making the face puffy and wrinkled.

Smoking can result in premature wrinkles as it speeds up the aging process of the skin. According to Mayo Clinic, nicotine in cigarettes causes harm to the capillaries and narrowing of the blood vessels in the skin, impairing normal blood flow. Other than nicotine, there are many harmful chemicals which damages the skin. As a result, the skin condition will rapidly deteriorate, with wrinkles being part of the harm that is done.

Getting Sufficient Sleep

Sleep deprivation or the lack of sufficient sleep is one of the culprits for accelerating aging skin and the formation of wrinkles. Sleep deprivation can produce cortisol, a stress-related hormone that can result in dry skin. A study by Estée Lauder has proven that women with less than 5 hours of sleep daily had twice the among of wrinkles and spots compared to those who slept for 7 hours. Lesser sleep means the body has less time to prepare the skin to repair and protect itself, causing wrinkles over time.

Just by going to bed early and that few minutes extra each night can make all the difference when it comes to your skin.
