5 Common Habits
That Age Your Skin

Many of us think that our skin will start to have wrinkles only when we are 40 or 50 but actually, many seemingly-harmless habits that we have in our daily lives will cause our skin to age earlier and faster unknowingly. What are they?
1) Frequent, exaggerated expressions
If you have the habit of frowning frequently or making exaggerated facial expressions such as laughing out loud, all these can cause wrinkles to appear on your face earlier. Repetitive expressions unnecessarily strain your facial muscles so over time, these muscles will lose their elasticity, resulting in permanent, prominent lines on the skin.
2) Washing hair with your head down
Washing hair with your head down will cause facial muscles to sag and may even result in double chin. Besides this, when your head is down, the pressure on the neck is 3 times the usual. Thus, lines and wrinkles will also appear on the neck.
3) Sleeping on your side
Sleeping on your side places more pressure on one side of the face compared to the other. Regardless of how soft your pillow is, burrowing your face into the pillow will put pressure on the collagen and elastin fibres in your skin, causing obvious lines on your forehead, cheeks and chin, as well as saggy skin. To prevent sleep lines, sleep on your back instead.
4) Drinking through a straw
Frequently sipping drinks through a straw can cause wrinkles to form around your mouth. This is because the repetitive muscle movement breaks down the collagen around your mouth, creating permanent wrinkles in your skin. Therefore, if you don’t want lines around your lips, it’s best to skip the straw and drink straight from the cups or bottles.
5) Having insufficient sleep
According to a study done in UK, sleeping 2 hours lesser each day is enough to make you look 12 years older in the long run. This is because when you lack sleep, your skin will not have enough time for cell repair and will lose its moisture and nutrients, leading to problems such as large pores, fine lines, sagging skin and eye bags.
