4 Habits That Can Make Your Skin Age Faster

There are some impressive treatments on the market to reverse the signs of facial aging, including plastic surgery, dermal fillers, chemical peels, facials and more. However, nothing is more powerful than slowing down the aging process naturally. There are certain lifestyle habits that can dramatically age your skin, causing wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation and sagging skin. By eliminating the following, you can prolong or avoid the need for plastic surgery or rejuvenation therapies.

Not Wearing Sunscreen
Chronic exposure to UV radiation from the sun not only puts you at risk for skin cancer and causes pigmentation, it can also lead to damaged elastin. Elastin are fibers in your skin that help it retain its tightness and form. Therefore, those that avoid sunscreen on a daily basis may encounter sagging skin sooner than those who wear an SPF.
Smoking
Nicotine is a vasoconstrictor, which means that the blood that carries vital nutrients to the skin is constricted or reduced. Smoking cigarettes is known to cause wrinkly, yellowed and aged skin.
Sleeping in your Makeup
After a long day, it can be difficult to muster up the energy to wash your face. However, neglecting to wash your makeup off could cause premature facial aging and other complexion issues. When the pores get clogged, irritation and even infection can occur within the skin. This can cause acne breakouts or even redness around the eyes. Beyond not allowing your skin to “breathe” at night, you are also exposing your complexion to longer periods of free radicals, which can break down collagen!
Not Getting Enough Sleep
Your entire body needs sleep. Considering that your skin is the largest organ in your body, your skin requires an adequate amount of shuteye each night. During your sleep, your skin renews and repairs itself. Not getting enough sleep has been associated with more fine lines, increased pigmentation and less skin elasticity.

Is your lifestyle habits fostering a healthy and youthful complexion? At Olansky Dermatology Associates, we are fully equipped to offer patients non-surgical treatments to reduce or eliminate the signs of facial aging. However, we value the importance of helping patients slow down the aging process if possible. This often includes changing lifestyle habits, such as wearing daily sunscreen, quitting smoking and getting more sleep each night. What changes can you make to keep the wrinkles at bay?

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
