Beauty Habits That Give You Wrinkles

Posted by Makeup Expert on

No doubts that wrinkles are part of aging. However, sometimes it has nothing to do with age but on a larger scale, it tends to indicate that beauty bad habits are giving you such discomfiture like continuous appearance wrinkles. Conversely, medical and beauty experts have listed down some habits which incline giving you wrinkles.


Smoking is not a good habit at all if you are a beauty conscious person since it is the most common foundation of wrinkles and fine lines. "There have been studies of twins that showed proof of this in stunning detail," says Joel Schlessinger, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon and founder of "So skip cigarettes and lose the wrinkles!"


Do not compromise on your diet. It is the basic essential to remain fit and strong yet healthy and spirited. Roshini Rajapaksa also indorses this notion, who is M.D., a gastroenterologist, balanced health advocate, and co-founder of TULA, says, "Through a damaging process called glycation, sugar molecules attach to the proteins in your skin (including collagen), causing them to become stiff and malformed," "This results in a loss of facial elasticity, as well as contours, puffiness, and fine lines. Refined sugar and other simple carbohydrates also trigger inflammation throughout the body by causing insulin levels to skyrocket. Inflammation produces enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, which leads to sagging and wrinkles."


Alcohol is no good for your skin. It dehydrates skin badly and cause wrinkles.  The entire process involving dehydrating of skin is beautiful explained by James C. Marotta, who is M.D., a dual-board-certified facial plastic surgeon, "Additionally, alcohol can have a huge negative impact on your vitamin A level, which is a very important antioxidant for your skin and body, and it is vital in the regeneration of new cells. Vitamin A is also extremely important in the production of collagen. When you have lower amounts of collagen, you lose elasticity in your skin,"

Chewing Gum:

Joel Schlessinger, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon and founder of, says, "Gum chewing produces a type of wrinkle that I see quite often on the lower mouth,"  Moreover, it effects other concerns in the mouth construction while it is not difficult to avoid this habit to prevent skin for further destruction.

Not Removing Makeup: 

If you are not removing makeup properly, it will certainly cause wrinkles on your skin. On the other hand, if you are sleeping with your makeup on, means you are asking for wrinkles. Both conditions have large tendency to cause wrinkles and fine lines.


Do not pick or pull from skin. It causes irritation and inside damage leading to a more destructive damage and more importantly even wrinkles.

Stretching Your Skin to Apply Makeup:

Stretching your skin to apply makeup is no good for you especially if you are ore conscious about wrinkles. Makeup artist Donna Kelly says and explains about stretching skin to apply makeup, “You should do your makeup how everyone else is going to see you, and hopefully it's not with your mouth stretched opened and eyebrows lifted so you can put on your mascara, don't pull on your eyes and stretch them so you can put on your eyeliner. It's about moving your whole face when you're applying makeup, not stretching it so it's flat."

Skipping Sunscreen:

Regarding skipping sunscreen, Debra Jaliman, who is M.D., a New York-based dermatologist and author of Skin Rules, says "Wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine, so that you don't get sun damage. Choose an SPF 30 and one that has zinc oxide or titanium dioxide."

Sunscreen is very important for every type of skin. You just cannot make choices which largely damage your skin leading it to wrinkles and fine lines.


Sleep well for a healthy lifestyle but sleeping correctly with right body action is equally important to avoid wrinkles in the long run. "It's best to sleep on a satin pillowcase that slides across your face," says dermatologist Jaliman. "The other alternative is to sleep on your back."
