Wash your face twice a day
Sometimes you are too sleepy to wash your face in the morning and too tired to remove your makeup before sleep. It’s one of the worst habits that lead to premature aging. It only takes a few minutes to wash your face so don’t find excuses to avoid doing it regularly. Not only will you prevent premature wrinkles, you can also prevent acne.
Get enough sleep
Whether you sleep more than 8 hours or less than 6 hours, you could cause your skin more harm than good. Your body needs 7-8 hours of sleep to repair itself. One of the most crucial rules to follow to avoid premature wrinkles is to get 8 hours of sleep, but you should go to bed not later than 11 pm. When you go to sleep later than midnight and get 8 hours of sleep, you can see your premature wrinkles and facial lines earlier than you think. The thing is, the most regenerative sleep occurs between 10 pm and 2 am. While it’s hard to hit the sack at 10 pm, it’s quite possible to fall asleep at 11 pm.
Your sleeping position can contribute to premature aging as well. Avoid sleeping on your side and face, instead try to sleep on your back.
Boost your antioxidant intake
Make sure you incorporate lots of antioxidant-rich foods into your daily diet. Antioxidants help to combat the skin-damaging free radicals and prevent premature wrinkles. Some of the best antioxidant-rich foods are berries, beans, dark chocolate, apples, artichokes, carrots, red grapes, pecans and black plums.
It’s not easy to prevent premature aging. Some girls have to deal with wrinkles and fine lines in their 20s and it’s all because of bad habits and poor skincare.
