Habits that Form Wrinkles

Depending on your daily habits and how much you care for your skin, wrinkles can form on your skin at any age. Once wrinkles form they continue to deepen if they are not addressed through cosmetic intervention. Cosmetic intervention may include wrinkle creams, but most often, wrinkles need to be addressed with fillers. It’s important to work on wrinkle prevention and keeping them off of your face for as long as possible. However, life happens and dermal fillers can address the issue. Below you will find the most common habits that form wrinkles.

Habits that Form Wrinkles

Watch out for these habits that form wrinkles. Otherwise, you might see signs of aging sooner than you would like.


One of the top reasons for facial wrinkles is smoking. Smoking is not only bad for your skin, but it harms your overall health. The skin issues caused from smoking are beyond just wrinkles and include baggy eyes, saggy upper eyelids, and it can even lead to your double chin drooping. Quitting as soon as possible is vital for your skin health and overall health.

Eye Rubbing:

The skin around your eyes is thin and really sensitive. As you age it loses the collagen, elastin, and fat that helps make your eyes look youthful and glowing. Rubbing your eyes is exceptionally rough on this area and can cause damage like wrinkles or even saggy upper eyelids. Use gentle movements and try and reduce the amount you touch your eyes.

Sleep Position:

If you sleep on your side or stomach, you can smash the skin on your face, which can form wrinkles. This is because staying in that position disrupts the way your skin naturally sits on your face. The stretching, pushing, and folding can create wrinkles even at a young age. Most cosmetic surgeons suggest sleeping on your back to avoid this. At the very least, invest in a quality silk pillow to reduce the impact.

Facial Expressions:

Certain facial expressions like frowning, squinting, and even laughing can create fine lines that deepen into wrinkles. Wear sunglasses when you are outside and use glasses if your eyesight is bad so you can avoid the potential for wrinkles.

Sun Exposure:

Over 90% of skin damage is due to sun exposure. This is such an inexpensive and easy fix. Use at least SPF 30 in the morning and reapply it as needed throughout the day. For extra protection, use a hat and long sleeves when you are in direct sunlight.

Alcohol Use:

Because alcohol is a diuretic, it can dehydrate you. Drinking excessively can strip the hydration from your body and skin, leaving it vulnerable to fine lines and wrinkles. This doesn’t mean you can’t drink, but moderation is key. Also, be sure and increase your water intake on the days or nights that you drink to compensate any dehydration.

Sleep Deprivation:

It is recommended that adults get at least seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Beauty sleep is a necessity and can help keep you looking youthful and refreshed. Without it, your skin doesn’t have time to repair, which can leave you looking dull and tired.
