Skin Sins to Avoid
Although skin starts aging the moment you’re born, the signs generally don’t start appearing until you’re around 30. While you can’t stop skin from aging completely, you can keep it looking youthful longer by avoiding as many of these skin sins as possible.
Aging specifically caused by UV rays is called photoaging. Sun exposure dries skin, thickens the epidermis and slows down cell renewal, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles and uneven tone. Avoid the sun when possible and wear SPF daily.
Smoking deprives skin of nutrients and oxygen, leaving it looking dull and lifeless. Smoking also causes harmful free radicals, which weaken collagen and elasticity, accelerating the aging process.
Stress and Lack of Sleep
Stress and lack of sleep can lead to dryness, sensitivity, acne, excess oil or lackluster skin. Getting enough restorative sleep is vital to give your skin time to repair and rejuvenate.
Pollutants in the air coat skin with grime that can block pores. Free radicals can break down skin’s structure, leading to wrinkles, roughness, dehydration and loss of elasticity.
The 15,000 facial expressions you make every day can damage skin. Frowning, smiling, squinting – the constant movement of facial muscles causes skin fibers to slacken. Over time these creases become wrinkles.
Fast food, sugar and empty calories can wreck your skin. The more nutrient dense your diet is, the healthier your skin will be. Eat foods rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants.
The way you sleep can increase the appearance of wrinkles. Side sleeping can cause lines on your chin and cheeks. Sleeping face down can create lines on your forehead. Sleeping on your back is the best way to prevent lines.

Going to Sleep with Makeup On
Our skin naturally renews and repairs at night, and not washing off the remains of your makeup at the end of the day can impede that process. It can also cause clogged pores and eye irritation.
