Along with age, the moisture retention capacity is reduced as well as the collagen and fat texture that gives the skin elasticity. The result is stains, wrinkles, sagging, dullness and deformation in the skin.
Not only in summer, but every season of the year, sunscreen cream should be used every day. It may be useful if you use products with an SPF value of 50 in summer and an SPF value of 15 or 30 in winter. Moisturizing and cosmetic products (powder, foundation, etc.) that have the sunscreen feature should be preferred.
Smoking: One of the most harmful environmental factors after the sun is smoking. Moreover, exposure to cigarette smoke as much as smoking also affects our skin negatively. The nicotine in the cigarette triggers the formation of wrinkles by reducing the involvement of water in the upper layer of the skin. It also triggers early aging by causing collagen breakdown in the connective tissue of the skin. Wrinkles can also occur in the upper lip area with the smoothing of the lips by smoking and blowing.
What to do? Do not smoke and be away from the drinking environment. If you have to stay in such places, you should try to reduce the cigarette by using antioxidant creams.
Excessive facial expressions: Mimic muscles are facial muscles that help us to express our feelings and thoughts. But we have to do some facials too much, so using too much of these muscles can lead to unwanted lines. Especially in the middle of the eye and at the edge of the eye, these lines are becoming increasingly evident over time, making us both old and hard-tempered.
What to do? Excessive mimicry should be avoided as much as possible. If there is a tendency to mimic wrinkles, botox can be made in those areas for prevention. Sun glasses should be used when going to the sun. If there is a vision problem, glasses or lens should be used.
Drinking enough water: Drinking water is very important for our overall health as well as our skin health. Our skin is already drying due to polluted air, wind, sun, air conditioning and other environmental factors. When you do not drink enough water, this dryness becomes even more pronounced and can lead to wrinkles that are attached to the skin.
What to do? Drink about 2.5 liters of water a day.
Incorrect diet: Incorrect diet can cause premature aging of our skin. For example sugar is one of the most important enemies of skin. When sugar molecules are present in the body too much, they change the structure of the protein. As a result, collagen and elastin proteins, the most important structures of the skin, can be damaged. Damage to these materials that provide skin elasticity and firmness can also cause skin sagging, wrinkles and deformations.
What to do? Rich in fruits and vegetables, skin can be protected by a diet rich in sugar and salt. Vitamins and minerals in vegetables and fruits are nutrients that make our skin look healthy and bright. Vegetables and fruits containing vitamins A, C and E, especially those that improve the texture of the skin and enhance the texture of the skin, should not be missing from the table. (pomegranate, orange, kiwi, carrot, nuts) Besides the main meals, a green salad rich in vitamins and minerals should be added to the nutritional chain. Packaged, processed, ready-made products should be preferred instead of fresh fruit. Snacks containing selenium and zinc, minerals that are useful for the skin, should be consumed at break times.
Using the wrong product: There are many products that contribute to the later appearance of aging, which makes the skin look healthy and beautiful. However, in order for these products to be effective, they must choose and properly use the ones that match the skin type. Otherwise, there may be many problems such as irritation, tenderness, redness and wrinkles on the skin. Likewise erroneous and inferior makeup products can also damage the skin, causing blackheads to trigger acne formation and wrinkles.
What to do? Assistance should be sought for the product that is appropriate for the skin type and for the use characteristics of this product. The skin should also be avoided from products that are too dry, irritating, sensitive and red. Medicated products should be preferred in cosmetic materials as well as daily skin cleansing and care. Because medical cosmetic products contain less chemical and perfume than other products, they are also suitable for sensitive skin types. In addition to these, products that have passed the expiration date, the package has been deformed, and there are differences in appearance or smell should definitely not be used.
