The first sign of aging is spotting of a wrinkle near your eyes or lips and that is the day when you start feeling old already, no matter what your age is. Wrinkles need not occur after you touch your middle age- they can haunt you any time and due to any reason. There are numerous causes of wrinkles but not all of them can be tackled but for those that can be, here are a few tips.

One of the most important, and sometimes unavoidable, reasons of wrinkle formation is repetitive facial movement. Yes, it is true. When we were kids, our parents always prevented us from making a certain kind of funny facial expression but then we loved being weird and didn’t understand their intentions behind it. Facial movement, like squinting, causes facial muscles to start moving in a way they never moved before and in an unnatural way. It makes a groove beneath the skin’s surface and with repetitive squinting this groove becomes permanent giving birth to a wrinkle. Again, there can be many reasons why we squint- weak eyes, sharp sun, etc. It is imperative that we note the reason why we squint and deal with it accordingly. Never forget to step out of your house without sunglasses. It will protect to eyes from the harmful UV rays and prevent you from squinting. Also, if your eyes are weak and you need spectacles for better vision then you better get it done fast before the first groove and wrinkle crops up.

Another caution is to take note of your sleep position. American Academy of Dermatology says that the position you sleep in can make for a grave wrinkle problem. Take for example, if you are sleeping on your sides then the skin of one of your cheek and chin gets wrinkled and remains like that all night. Look at your face in the mirror once you wake up in the morning; you will see fine lines on your cheek and chin which will be permanent if you continue sleeping on your sides night after night. Even sleeping with your face down can have the same effect. It is always advisable to sleep on your back to avoid wrinkles. You might find it a tad uneasy but if the goal is to reduce sleep lines and grooves then sleeping on your back and sacrificing your favorite sleeping position is not too much to ask.
