We’ve all had days where we wake up feeling and looking older then we actually are. There are many reasons that can make your skin could look older, but I’ve picked out some of the main ones. If you are feeling like your skin is not matching your age, it could be due to various reasons, so to make sure it’s in tip top condition try and curb some of these habits today!

Alcohol

Sometimes there’s nothing better to the end of a stressful day but drinking can add to wrinkles, loss of collagen, elasticity, redness, dehydration and puffiness which are all ways your skin will start to look old fast. However, it’s the amount and frequency of your drinking that really matters. So don’t worry ladies, your drinking on the weekends shouldn’t affect your skin just yet. Just make sure you follow the rule – everything in moderation.

Smoking

This of course will make your skin look older and can even make your skin look discoloured. Not only is your skin affected, but your teeth as well. With yellow teeth and bad skin, it really does make your overall appearance look a lot older than your age. It is said that smokers in their 30s have facial wrinkles similar than those of nonsmokers in their 50s. Yikes!

Tanning

We are all aware, or should be aware of how excessive tanning affects our skin. Now, I’m not saying going out in the sun sometimes is going to make you look older, I mean going to the tanning bed every day and over doing it will. This will make your skin look leathery and once you get older, your skin will look rough and even droopy.

Makeup

This can play a huge factor in breakouts which in the long run will make your skin look older. The heavier the makeup, the more you are clogging your pores and the more your skin cannot breathe.

Not removing your makeup

Before you go to bed, you should always take off your eye makeup as well as your foundation. Your skin needs to breathe and it is very important to let that happen during the night. Leaving your makeup on will result in wrinkles and will ultimately make you age faster.
