Wrinkles around the eyes and frown lines are often a result of stress, smoking and environmental damage. But a number of bad every day habits can equallly contribute to a tired and older look. We have identified 3 common ones that a lot of people have. If you are someone who is worried about the wrinkles about your eyes to become more prominent, you should stop:
1) skipping SPF every morning: the sun causes your skin to age, because it activates free radicals. It is as simple as that. The skin around your eyes is thinner than anywhere else on the body, so it is more vulnerable to ageing. Choose a good SPF product to use and make sure that you do not leave the house without your SPF on. Obagi SunShield and a range of Heliocare sun blocks are worth looking at. Combined with the Obagi Professional-C Serums, which we consider as the best antioxidant we have tested so far, a small amount of SPF every morning will make a huge difference to the way your skin looks.
2) sleeping on your tummy: when you sleep with your face down, one side of it is resting on the pillow and is squished for a long time at night. By constant squishing your face that way, you cause your skin to crease that can eventually turn into wrinkly tissue. Did you notice those sleep lines in the morning? Start falling asleep on your back from tonight!
3) rubbing your eyes: chances are that you rub your eyes at least once a day. It is an instinct! It feels good to rub your eyes when you are tired or when your eyes are irritated, but it is a habit that you must end if you want to avoid looking older! The skin around the eyes is very thin, so when you rub it, you cause folds to form. You can consider fixing it with a Botox treatment, of course, but isn't it worth trying to pay more attention to eliminating a harmful habit first?
