When you notice that there are some thin lines appearing in your face, that’s when you know that you are getting old. Although a natural occurrence, developing wrinkles at an early age is something to be given immediate attention. A wrinkle, also known as a rhytide, is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin or on fabric. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes such as glycation, habitual sleeping positions, loss of body mass, or temporarily, as the result of prolonged immersion in water.

We may find that aging is the primary contributor of wrinkles but there are also other factors that can lead to wrinkles at a much younger age. It’s mostly because of what you do to your skin that usually causes wrinkles to appear.
Here are the “Bad Habits” that you do that makes those wrinkles appear.
2. Drinking too much alcohol
Another note to consider with alcohol is it acts as a diuretic. The more you drink, the more you release fluids out, making you dehydrated. Dehydration deeply affects your skin; it makes thin lines and wrinkles appear on your face.
3. Too much use of exfoliating products
Although exfoliating benefits the skin, doing it more often does more harm than good. Too much exfoliation on the skin makes it drier by eliminating the skin’s natural oils, leaving your skin red and irritated.
When you exfoliate, make sure you do it once a week only if you have dry skin and twice per week when your skin is oily. Use gentle circular motion when exfoliating. Don’t rub it harshly or it will damage your skin cells.
4. Not putting on sunscreen
Basking in sunlight for a few minutes is necessary because it’s a natural source of Vitamin D but you need to do it early in the morning at sunrise and avoid it during peak hours from 10 am to 4 pm.
5. Sleeping without removing Makeup
Removing makeup before going to bed and making it a habit leads to a healthier skin. Pamper your skin for about ten minutes by washing your face with a mild soap and apply moisturizer before sleeping, this allows your skin to “breathe” throughout the night.
