There are so many everyday habits that can give you wrinkles.

Here at Skinworx, we offer HydraFacials® in San Francisco that can help to reduce your fine lines and wrinkles. Although HydraFacials are effective, the best way to keep your skin smooth is to avoid adding more fine lines and wrinkles in the future! Believe it or not, age only plays a small part in the development of facial lines. The real culprit of your fine lines and wrinkles is your everyday habits. Here are a few habits that are giving you more wrinkles:

#1. Skipping the sunscreen.

If you are truly serious about avoiding wrinkles, then it’s important to wear sunscreen every single day, regardless of whether it is a hot, sunny day in the summer or a cold, blustery winter day. Unprotected sun exposure is the number one cause of most of the signs of aging, and UV rays can harm your skin even when it’s cloudy out.

#2. Pulling on your eyelids when applying makeup.

Tugging on your eyelids makes is much easier to create the perfect cat eye, but it’s also a great way to get fine lines. The skin around your eyes is incredibly delicate and sensitive, and pulling on it leads to broken vessels, puffiness and wrinkles.

#3. Sleeping on your stomach or side.

Sleeping with your face pressed against the pillow, whether you are on your stomach or side, can lead to wrinkles. The best way to avoid these wrinkles is by sleeping on your back, but if you must sleep on your stomach or side, switch to a satin pillowcase.
