How Environment and Lifestyle can Affect The Way Your Skin Ages
Your environment and lifestyle can affect the way and rate at which your skin ages, this does not include intrinsic aging which is predetermined by your DNA. External factors that speed up the aging process of your skin are known as things that contribute to your extrinsic ageing.
The most significant extrinsic ageing factor is the sun. This is why using sunscreen every day is so important. Sun damage is the primary cause of skin ageing. This doesn’t mean sunscreen is necessary when you plan to be out in the sun, it is a necessity no matter what the conditions are. Even if you are indoors throughout the day, skin-damaging UV rays penetrate glass so sun protection is always necessary everywhere.
Don’t Neglect Your Hands and Neck
The areas usually neglected in skin care routine tend to show age first, like the hands and neck. Don’t sabotage your own youthful glow by neglecting the parts of your body that get just as much sun. Be sure to give your hands and neck the same TLC you give your face in your daily skin care routine. Hands are known to show signs of ageing like dark spots and loss of firmness, so as a general rule anything you do to your face skin care wise you should apply to your hands and neck as well.
One offence almost all ladies are guilty of is not removing makeup before bed. After time this will lead to build up which will clog pores and cause breakouts. Be sure to cleanse your face (neck and hands) before retiring for the night. Getting enough sleep is also a determining factor when it comes to how quickly your skin ages.
If you smoke, stop now, it is not doing you any favours, especially not your skin. Smoking deprives skin of oxygen and breaks down collagen, the glue keeping your skin firm and plump. Your diet and the consumption of alcohol will also affect the rate at which your skin begins to show signs of ageing.
