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!

Pinterest DIY face treatments can sometimes be deceiving. The can do more harm than good if you aren’t too careful! If you want to avoid unnecessary irritation and breakouts on your face, check out the tips below on what to never put on your face.

  1. Hairspray: A lot of people spritz their face with hairspray to help their makeup stay on longer, but hairspray contains alcohols which suck the moisture right out of your face! It fan also clog your pores and cause acne flair ups. Yuck!sugar-03
  2. Lemon juice: Citrus fruits have a ton of acid so they easily irritate your skin. Also, lemons have a chemical in them that can make your skin very sensitive to light, which means if you put lemon juice on your face and then go outside for a long period of time, your skin could blister.
  3. Really hot water: Steam facials are great for you, but washing your face with hot water is another story. The thought is that hot water kills bacteria, but it actually strips the moisture out of your skin! Use warm water instead.
  4. Sugar: Although it is known as a good skin exfoliant, save it for skin other than facial skin. The big particles can cause microscopic tears in your skin and can lead to breakouts!

Keeping your face healthy and clean is just as much about what you put on it as what you don’t put on it!

Winter can really do a number on your skin. It can dry you out and do not-so-pretty things to it. Plus, it can feel itchy and uncomfortable. Want to know how to give your skin the attention it deserves this winter? Read on!

  1. Give your lips some love: Winter can cause your lips to become more and more chapped and dry. One way to care for your lips is to use a lip scrub on them. Get all of that yucky dry skin off! This also moisturizes your pout.download (3)
  2. Deal with dry skin: Don’t try and cover up your dry skin with makeup. Deal with it at the source! Exfoliate the dead skin off of your face before you apply makeup. It will get the flaky skin off. Moisturize after you exfoliate for maximum dry skin help.
  3. Moisturize often: Moisturize several times a day to prevent the dry skin mentioned above. Make sure your moisturizer has sunscreen in it to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer.
  4. Body lotion: Apply body lotion in the shower to lock in the hydration! Towel off in the shower and then slather on your lotion.

Hopefully these tips keep your skin happy this winter.
