Moisturize the eye area after removing Makeup’
It is important that we wash off all makeup from the face before going to bed. But more attention should be paid to the eye area. Leaving makeup on the eye area causes it to wrinkle really fast. Also, your makeup removers can make the eye area wrinkle, which is why applying moisturizer is recommended.
Smoking not only affects the lungs but also causes the formation of wrinkles on the skin. Smoking narrows the blood vessels thereby reducing the supply of nutrients to the skin. Since skin cells depend on nutrients for nourishment, the skin becomes wrinkled subsequently.
If you don’t smoke, avoid it totally, but if you do, the best time to quit is now for the safety of your skin and overall health.
Get Enough Sleep
The importance of sleep can never be overemphasized. Sleeping has healing powers to most of the body ailments. It prevents wrinkles by helping the body relax and allows recovery of collagen that may have been destroyed.
