Facial skin wrinkles faster than skin on other body parts. And because of that, the face must get extra care compared to other body parts.

3. Sunscreen is important for anti-aging skin
Research shows that those who use sunscreen every day have a 24% lower risk of skin aging than those who do not normally use sunscreen.

4. Light-skinned people age faster than dark-skinned people
People who have bright eye colors (such as blue eyes and hazel eyes), as well as white people, have a higher risk of skin damage due to sunlight than those with dark skin. But, also don't deliberately darken the skin, because unnatural skin darkening could potentially expose you to a risk of skin cancer.

5. Darkening the skin can cause skin to age faster
This relates to points 3 and 4 above. Frequent exposure to sunlight without using a sunscreen or other skin protection can cause damage to the skin, especially deliberately darkening the skin using tanning beds. In addition to premature aging, the process of darkening the skin can also cause skin cancer. So, you should think again if you want to use tanning beds.

6. Washing your face too often causes your skin to dry
Washing your face with soap more than twice a day can cause the skin to lose its natural oil. As a result, the skin becomes dry and prone to wrinkles. We recommend using facial soap only once a day, and the rest using natural ingredients such as essential oils or cleansing milk. This can maintain the skin's natural moisture, and make it not wrinkles quickly.
