Sleep On Your Back
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, sleeping in a certain position every night for a longer period of time can lead to the creation of wrinkles that don’t disappear after waking up.
You can get wrinkles on your cheeks and chin if you sleep on your right or left side every night. Moreover, if you sleep with your head in your pillow you can get wrinkles above your eyebrows.
For that reason, it is best if you sleep on your back to avoid the creation of wrinkles on your face.
Eat More Fish – Especially Salmon
Skin elasticity is maintained by proteins and fatty acids.

Don’t Wink – Buy Yourself a Pair of Sunglasses and Reading Glasses in Due Time
If you do certain face movements repeatedly, they will affect your face muscles. As a result they will create lines under the skin’s surface that eventually will become wrinkles. So, stop winking and opening your eyes wide.
A nice advice is to start using glasses while reading and sunglasses while out in the sun. They will protect your eyes as well as the skin wrount them.
Drink Cocoa instead of coffee
Some researchers published a study in Journal of Nutrition that they have found high concentration of 2 types of flavonoids – catechin and epicatechin in cocoa. It has been found out that these two flavonoids contribute to the hydration and circulation of the skin and also protect it from the negative influence of the sun.
If you drink more cocoa your skin becomes softer and smoother.
Be Careful With Face Washing
You shouldn’t wash your face too often as the water will dry your skin. In this way you remove the natural skin oils which are the essence for its hydration and protection from wrinkles.
That’s why we advise you to use a dermatologically proven hydrating skin tonic or skin soap for washing your face.
