5 habits that can make you look older

Facial skin already loses enough luminosity and smoothness as it ages to make it easier to work with bad habits., which are the fast track to appear older than you are.

Avoiding these mistakes won't keep you forever young, but it will help you slow down the appearance of the signs of aging (like wrinkles, blemishes and fine lines), which is already a lot.

Not protect yourself from the sun

It is a classic, although it never hurts to remember it, since its consequences can range from premature spots and wrinkles to serious diseases such as cancer. Protecting yourself from the sun's rays is not only essential in summer, but also during winter. For this you must make sure that your day cream includes SPF sun protection. If your skin is very sensitive, do not hesitate to resort to the extra protection offered by caps and hats during the central hours of the day.

Not getting enough sleep

When the skin does not rest enough, the risk of bags under the eyes increases, as well as wrinkles. Sleep between 7 and 9 hours a day so that your eyes do not look tired and your skin does not lose more elasticity than necessary.

Not using moisturizer regularly

When it comes to keeping skin plump and luminous, it is not enough not to hydrate it from time to time; it takes regularity. It doesn't cost that much either ... it only takes a few seconds in the morning and a few seconds before going to bed. The reward is greater than the effort.

Living with stress

Stress not only increases your risk of heart disease and being overweight, it has also been linked to decreased collagen production. And when this begins to be scarce, sagging and wrinkles run freely across the face.

Abusing alcohol and tobacco

Both alcohol and tobacco contribute to wrinkles on your face, making you appear older. They're doing you no favors on the inside either, damaging your liver and lungs. Giving up these two habits is a great step towards a fresher image.

    good afternoon, Miguel,

    I did not know this page and I found it very interesting. The article also, it is sad that there is still no full awareness that things like alcohol abuse cause premature aging. Sometimes you don't have to do great things to take care of yourself, but just have a little common sense.
