4 Sneaky Causes of Wrinkles & How to Avoid Them

4 Sneaky Causes of Wrinkles and How to Avoid Them

Aging – It happens to all of us, but as we age, we all want to do so gracefully. Even if you take excellent care of your skin, there are still sneaky little culprits that can speed the aging process, causing an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. To help you age as beautifully as possible, we’re revealing 4 common causes for wrinkles (a.k.a the “4 Sneaky “S’s”) and what you can do to avoid them.

1. Squinting

This one might seem obvious but you probably catch yourself squinting those peepers more often than you think. Every time you forget your sunglasses or squint at the computer screen, you’re increasing the likelihood of crow’s feet and wrinkles around the eye area and the more repetitive the facial expressions, the deeper the wrinkles over time. But don’t panic, your squinting won’t cause crow’s feet overnight, there are a number of things you can do to avoid fine lines around the eye area.

Certified organic Seabuckthorn CO2 oil to help repair damaged skin, and the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines.

2. Stress

Not only can stress cause strain on your heart and immune system, it can also wreak havoc on your complexion. According to the Huffington Post, researchers found that “people with the most work-related stress had the shortest telomeres, causing cells to die or become damaged, which may speed up the aging process”.

The Fix: The good news about stress-related aging is that it can be averted. Healthy habits like exercise, meditation and a nutritious diet, can help ease stress and premature signs of aging. Aromatherapy is another safe and natural way to reduce stress. “Recent clinical and laboratory research has determined that chamomile is not only relaxing, but it can significantly decrease anxiety and even fight depression.”

3. Sugar

You already know that sugar isn’t good for your health, but did you know it can also age your skin? This scary process is called glycation where sugar bonds with proteins in your body. These sugar-bonded proteins produce free radicals which destroy your collagen and elastin, the building blocks that keep your skin strong and supple (Prevention).

The Fix: The easiest way to avoid sugar-induced wrinkles is to stop eating sugary foods. We also recommend a diet and skin care routine rich in antioxidants like vitamin C which reduces free radical damage to the skin and body. MYOILS recommend the Dragon Blood Firming Eye and Facial Serum: “It fights signs of glycation, the breakdown of collagen and elastin caused by sugar in the bloodstream. The gentle, non-greasy formula is effective on all skin types…”

4. Soaps & Sulfates

If you’re using harsh soaps or cleansers that contain sulfates, you may want to rethink your skin care routine. According to Today Beauty, “Sodium lauryl sulfate is a harsh emulsifier that is found in body washes, facial cleansers, and soap; it rids the skin of dirt and oil while breaking down precious lipids, the glue that binds skin cells together.”

The Fix: The solution is simple – stop using soap on your face! MYOILS natural facial cleansers are formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, animal by-products, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan.
