I am all about wrinkle prevention. Most of us think that wearing sunscreen and keeping our face moisturized is all it takes, but that isn’t the case! There are quite a few weird habits that can prevent wrinkles and protect your skin. Wrinkles and skin damage are caused by factors that we can and cannot control. Exposure to the sun and smoking are big causes of wrinkles, but a healthy diet, good sleep, moisturizing and sunscreen can protect against wrinkles. Here are some weird habits that help protect your skin from damage and aging.

  1. Sleeping position: Sleeping on your back is best for your face! Sleeping on either side can cause wrinkles on the sides of your face that you sleep on, and gravity begins to take its course.
  2. Chocolate: Yep, you heard that right! A little dark chocolate a day can help protect your skin from the negative effects of sun-exposure. The antioxidants naturally found in cocoa are great for your skin.skincare
  3. Washing your face less often: This may sound weird, but too much cleansing strips your skin of its natural oils and moisture, and those are things that help protect against wrinkles.
  4. Cutting back on sugar: That second latte of the day may seem harmless, but it is actually causing more harm than good! Excess sugar in our blood stream causes early aging in our skin.

The healthier your habits and the more you protect your skin, the less likely you will be to get those unwanted wrinkles. The earlier you start on prevention the better!

Top 5 Skin Maintenance Rules

To the girls who have naturally clear skin: I envy you! Girls like me who have to work to have clear skin long to have your gorgeous “I woke up like this” façade. According to experts, there are a few “rules” that you need to follow in order to get fabulously flawless skin. Here are those very rules so you know NOT to break them!

  1. SPF all day every day: Wear a minimum of SPF 15 on a daily basis. This will help prevent skin damage, wrinkles, sunburn, and skin cancer.FullSizeRender (13)
  2. Get your <3 pumping: Exercise isn’t always the most fun activity on the planet, but when you get that heart pumping you are delivering oxygen to your skin! Plus, you are burning calories and toning that fab figure.
  3. Say no to cigarettes: Not only is smoking terrible for your health in general, it is also horrible for your skin. Smoking causes your lung capacity to decrease, which causes decreased oxygenation of your tissues and gives your liver too much work to do to process the toxins. This causes your skin to dehydrate, stop glowing, and become inflamed.
  4. Don’t pick at zits: If you pop your pimples, you can cause them to scar! The best way to zap a zit is to put an ice cube wrapped in a cloth on your pimple for a minute.
  5. Exfoliate: This can help get rid of acne scars and also allows skin products to absorb better and work more effectively!

These are just a few things experts say will help you get gorgeous skin. Seems easy enough, right?

Sleep and Skin Care

If there is one thing I wish I could get more of, it is sleep. When I am at school, all I can think about is going home and napping, ha! Staying up late sounds good at the time, but the next day is sooooo not as fun. Makeup can hide the bags under your eyes, but it cant disguise your exhaustion! Here are 3 reasons why you should be getting more sleep, for your skin’s sake.

  1. Sped up aging process: When you don’t get enough sleep, your skin suffers. It speeds up the aging process of your skin and makes it dry out faster.images
  2. Increased Cortisol levels: cortisol is a stress hormone, and when you don’t catch enough zzzz’s, it gets all out of whack. Cortisol can also cause acne and trigger some skin conditions like eczema, or it can make your pimples worse!
  3. It changes your growth hormones: sleep deprivation also causes decreases in growth hormones that help thicken and moisturize your skin. This leads to dehydrated skin and, like we said above, faster signs of aging! Want glowing skin? Then you need those growth hormones!

Moral of the story? Sleep keeps your skin looking better and younger. Getting your beauty rest is so worth it!
