The fast track to younger looking skin ; Avoid:
-Smoking: Other than the numerous health risks people often disregard with the thought, “it will not happen to me”, smoking also results in deep wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
-Forgetting to put sun block: a broad spectrum sun screen lotion, minimum SPF 30, is essential when going out in the sun, this means every day, even when commuting by car. The surefire way to get saggy, wrinkled and blotchy skin, is to forget to put sun screen lotion too often.
-Too much alcohol:Alcohol is a diuretic which dehydrates your skin and enlarges blood vessels in the skin. Excessive drinking can cause the blood vessels to remain dilated, which results in red, blotchy skin tone, it also causes the skin to sag eventually. It worsens acne, and depletes the body of Vitamin A.
-Sleep deprivation: when you sleep, your body does all the repair work for the damage done in the day. Less sleep, less repair – resulting in breakouts and a sallow complexion. It also causes a lot of stress, and the negative effects of stress would be a whole other article.
