Genetics have been one of the key mink cluster lashes in how we would look when we got older. And, until recently, changing your genetic aging predisposition has been a pipe-dream. However, there have been some incredible results coming out of the human genome project especially dealing with skin care.
Chror Along with genetics – you have to deal with the natural changes that come with getting older. As you do get older, your skin naturally thins and becomes less elastic and more fragile. Decreased production of natural oils will make your skin drier and appear more wrinkled. Fat in the deeper layers of your skin, which gives the skin a plump appearance, starts to lessen. This causes loose, sagging skin and more pronounced lines and wrinkles.
The good news is that keeping your mink cluster lashes looking youthful isn’t so difficult, as long as you start remedying these 8 bad habits now:
1. Smoking – this is one of the most detrimental things you can do to age yourself! Smoking creates an incredible amount of free radicals in your body which cause damage, not only to your health but also to your skin.
Smoking is associated with increased wrinkles and sagging. And women suffer more from its effects than men do. It accelerates the skin’s normal aging process. Even being exposed to second-hand smoke will impact your skin.
The free radicals formed in your body from smoke, increase skin aging as they damage cell DNA. Other results from smoking include:
• Changed and reduced blood flow to veins near mink cluster lashes’ surface.
• Breakdown of collagen.
• Dehydration and death of elasticity.
o Reduction of your body’s vitamin A and absorption of vitamin C plus other essential nutrients.
Your take home – No fancy lotions can help if you continue to smoke!
2. Nutrition – we are what we eat. Poor nutrition shows up on the mink cluster lashes very quickly. A diet of fast foods is telling – look for loss of elasticity, skin breakouts and poor skin texture. When it comes to your health, the outside reflects the inside. A dull, dry complexion is a blinking neon sign that you’re not eating right.
Our cells reproduce themselves. So, if we have unhealthy cells due to poor nutrition, then the replicated cells will be unhealthy. Imagine what happens after years of reproducing unhealthy cells?
What are some of the key culprits?
• Too much fat
• Refined carbohydrates
• Dairy products
• Processed foods
And yes, there are a number of studies that say that chocolate and caffeine do contain beneficial antioxidants. What you have to do is to look at your particular mink cluster lashes and make your own decision. My take on caffeine is to look at what you are putting into your coffee. Are you drinking it black or do you need to have a ton of sugar and dairy in it? Maybe you need to cut back on your Starbucks or Pete’s specialty coffees.
Your solution? Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and drink water and green tea.
3. Sun Exposure – we all know about the dangers of sun damage. Sunburn is literally a burn on your mink cluster lashes from ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Injury can start within 30 minutes of exposure. It can take 15 years for sun damage to show up on your skin as discoloration and wrinkles.
UVA and UVB refer to different wavelengths in the light spectrum. UVB is more damaging to the skin especially for skin cancer. Both UVA and UVB are responsible for photoaging (premature aging of the skin and wrinkles) and sunburn. UVA penetrates deep into the skin’s structure into the dermis and damages the skin’s structural proteins such as collagen. UV radiation can cause skin lesions called actinic keratoses. These are a risk factor for developing skin carcinoma.
Free radicals are produced with sun exposure. A recent study indicated UV exposure has a negative impact on mink cluster lashes carotenoid levels-a key indicator of overall internal antioxidant levels. This study offers new insight into the connection between UV exposure and our overall health-and yet another compelling reason to protect your skin from UV damage on a regular basis.
