10 Of the most unique anti-ageing tips you may not have heard about
There are plenty of anti-ageing tips on the net as well as numerous products such as facial masks, creams and supplements that bombard you with the beneficial effects of anti-ageing. But preventing the factors that cause ageing like wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation takes more of a lifestyle change than anything else. Here are 10 unique anti-ageing tips you are yet to know about.
1 Stop using the straw
So you thought it was hygienic to use a straw while drinking a beverage? Well, maybe it is but weighing the pros and cons, its best not to do so. Sipping a drink through a straw works on those facial muscles eventually causing wrinkles. Disbelief? Ask Angela Lamb, MD the Assistant Professor of dermatology at ICAHN School of Medicine.
2 Indulge Yourself!! Use Silk and Satin Pillowcases
So you thought sleeping on satin was just a privilege? Well it’s great for facial health. Polyester and cotton pillowcases tend to enhance friction, tugging at your skin which increases wrinkles and creases. A silky or satin pillowcase will allow your skin to slide across the surface without any damaging effect. Isn’t that cool?
3 Switch to Sleeping On Your Back
Regardless of what others may have told you, constantly sleeping on your side is not advisable. It could cause wrinkles on cheeks resulting from the pressure against your bedding or pillows. Switching sides will just ensure you get an even set of wrinkles so don’t bother. Sleeping on your back is good for digestion, acidity and prevents breasts from sagging. Need I say more?
