Beyond the years, wrinkles on the skin and dryness reflect our lifestyle and even our habits, such as smoking or drinking alcohol. Here I tell you what habits you should leave if you want to have a beautiful and smooth skin.
“Did you see that woman?” Asked my friend and immediately continued saying: “It seems that he was 10 years older than me, when in fact he has 10 less”. “Obvious, I said, you scarcely take a drink when you go to party and you run away to the sun even when he does not even appear.”
Age is not the only factor that contributes to the aging of the skin. In fact, it is the external factors that, to a greater extent, determine the changes in their characteristics.
Having a sedentary life or with many worries, eating a diet that is not particularly healthy, smoking and drinking excessively and excessive exposure to the sun , among others, cause the most extensive organ of our body to weaken, lose its humidity natural and wrinkles. If you want to have beautiful skin, you should abandon the following habits:
1. No fumes
If you are a smoker or know someone who smokes, look at your cheekbones, especially the area closest to the nose, and you will notice that the pores are open, a sign that the skin begins to deteriorate. Even, the fingertips and the surroundings of the mouth will turn a grayish color that does not match the rest of the skin. The nicotine in cigarettes causes blood vessels to contract in the superficial layers of the skin. This causes the blood to arrive with difficulty, which means that your skin receives less oxygen and other nutrients necessary for its beauty (such as vitamin A, for example). In addition, the chemicals in the tobacco, which are more than 4,000, damage collagen and elastin.
2. Do not drink alcohol
Have you heard that drinking lots of water is essential to keep skin hydrated and beautiful? It is true. The water makes it look younger and beautiful. But if what you like is to drink alcohol, you will be producing the opposite effect: alcohol causes dehydration which deprives the skin of its vital nutrients that make it appear opaque. Alcohol also causes blood vessels to dilate, and if you drink too often you can develop red spots or superficial vascular dilations (which are known as spider veins or “spider veins”) that do not look attractive. By the way, if you have rosacea or psoriasis , alcohol aggravates these two conditions.
Admittedly, acne is an annoying condition and is not pleasing to the eye. It is a very common problem and many people in their eagerness to take it off, they rub their faces with force thinking that in that way they will eliminate it. But it’s not like that. If you rub your face very hard, what you do is cause more irritation. To treat acne , use the medications indicated for acne either over-the-counter or, if they do not work, those recommended by a dermatologist.
4. Do not abuse hot baths
If you do not want to have dry skin and possibly develop a dermatitis (a severe inflammation of the skin), avoid taking hot baths or showers that last a long time. The client water removes the natural oils from the skin much faster than warm or cold water causing dryness.
5. Do not forget to hydrate all your skin
Do it in the morning, after bathing so that the skin retains moisture and stays hydrated. At night you can also give yourself a touch of moisturizerto keep the skin soft. This applies both to the face (look for day creams with sunscreen and others for the night) and for the entire body. This way you will look like a skin full of life.
Finally, exercise, eat a healthy diet ( includes many fruits and vegetables ) and avoid exposing yourself to the sun in excess as they are also key to having beautiful skin.
