Some of the issues you might have neglected
The way the rest on the pillow, in the same way every night for years, causes certain wrinkles. Called sleep lines, these wrinkles get worse and not disappear easily.
Women who tend to sleep on their sides will see these lines the fastest as they begin to persist on the cheeks and chin. Men will notice them especially on the forehead, because they sleep in the general face to pillow position.
Too little sleep will make you look and feel tired. One of the first places that signals sleep deprivation is the area under the eyes: dark circles, puffiness and sagging skin under your eyes.
Lack of sleep is an important trigger for memory loss too and depression symptoms include decreased interest in daily activities and negative thinking. Research has shown that for most adults a 8-9 hours of sleep per night is needed.
If you make facial expressions to maintain the skin’s youthful appearance is time to stop.
Repetitive facial movements will lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Every time you use a facial muscle you contribute to the formation of facial lines. As the skin ages and loses its elasticity it no longer returns to the starting position so well and ditches that occur during facial expression will remain constant as wrinkles and fine lines.

– Wear full protective clothing (wide-brimmed hat, long sleeves) when sitting outdoors during the day apply sunscreen with broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) with a sun protection factor of 30 or higher. The cream should be applied 20 minutes before going outdoors and be reapplied after sweating or swimming.
