Daily Habits to Slow Wrinkles

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

You’ve heard many times about the importance of wearing sunscreen and most of us think of the long days at the lake or golfing–times when we spend hours in the sun.  It is critical that you understand it is the small things that add up, too. Every time you take your dog out for a quick walk and when you drive around every day with the sun shining in your window–you need sunscreen during these quick outings, too.  We’d love to help you choose the right sunscreen so if you need to stock up for summer, drop in and we’ll be happy to assist you!

Your sleep position can also prevent wrinkles.  Experts believe that sleeping on your stomach or on your side when your face is being pushed in that same position over and over again can be a problem.  They recommend sleeping on your back with a pillow under your knees to prevent rolling.

Speaking of sleep, we also must realize the importance role it plays when it comes to skin care and the appearance of our skin.  A recent study suggested that people who slept eight hours a night were actually perceived by others to be not just more beautiful and more attractive physically, but healthier.  When a person sleeps, their whole body, including their skin, rejuvenates. Re-hydration takes place during sleep, which means the cells of the skin repair themselves during the night.
