3 Factors You didn't Know Were Causing Signs of Aging on your Face

We keep up with all the latest skincare products promising to banish wrinkles and keep our skin youthful and supple, but those lines still seem to creep their way up on us.

Of course aging is inevitable and a natural part of life, but the way your skin ages all comes down to you!

Using all natural antioxidant infused skincare, such as our fantastic range here at Green Sisters, is just one step in the fight against youthful and radiant skin.


Keep reading to learn a little more about the surprising everyday things that may be contributing to aging skin as well as natural ways to beat them for good!


Stress


This is a big one. Stress is something that affects us all on one level or another, and while stress can leave you feeling fatigueds and tense, what you may not know is that it has a terrible impact on your skin too.

Elevated stress levels increase the stress hormone, cortisol, which can actually break down structural proteins, namely collagen and elastin, that are needed to ensure your skin stays taut and plump.

Fortunately, there are many natural remedies to ease your stress and one of our absolute favourites is by diffusing essential oils.

Try our Peace and Calm Blend, which includes Ylang Ylang and Patchouli to relax both the physical body and the mind.


Sleeping with Your Makeup On

We aren’t judging, because we’ve all been there, but one too many nights of hitting the sheets with a full face of makeup will definitely increase your risk of aging skin. Makeup blocks the pores, which can contribute to breakouts, but it also can seriously sap the moisture from your skin and because hydration is the key to youthful skin, this is a big NO NO.

Why not cleanse your skin with a deep dose of hydration so your pores are clear and your skin feels soft and moisturized? Our Facial Foam Cleanser with Argan Oil includes argan oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil to melt away all traces of dirt and grime, but without stripping your skin of its natural oils.


Your Emotions


This may sound a little wacky, but the constant expressions your face goes through on a daily basis can definitely increase your chance of lines and wrinkles.

Of course it’s impossible to keep our faces perfectly impassive, (we aren’t robots!) but did you know that you can exercise your face to help smooth it out and increase blood flow for a more youthful, supple and luminous complexion?

Try face yoga for yourself if you don’t believe us! And hey, something can be said about the benefits of music therapy for mental wellbeing as well.

 

These three simple tips can be your ticket to preventing the signs of aging on your face in a very short time. It’s just a case of being diligent and making sure to take time out for yourself!
