How this fast-paced world is affecting our skin

The western world certainly is changing isn’t it. Do you remember what is was like 20-30 years ago. Where every 3-5 years there would be some sort of technological advancement or eureka moment.

Going back earlier than that it would be once every 10 years. Nowadays though it seems like every month there is something new to get excited about.

One key advancement is the internet. Over the past 5 years especially I’ve noticed that we’ve all become a lot more connected and addicted to our smartphones, laptops and iPads.

This addiction has naturally led us to staying up later and later each night, promising ourselves that we’ll only watch one more episode on Netflix before we go to bed. 3 hours later you finally turn out the light!

Sadly this is the case with so many people nowadays. This lack of sleep is leading to some serious health problems, especially in the youth of today. Who would have guessed that advancing technology could actually have a negative effect on our health and livelihood.

It’s not only the younger generation that are being affected. People like myself often fall into this trap too. As well as losing sleep, I’ve also found myself looking much more wrinkly and old than I think I should be.

staying up late is bad for your skin

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably tried your best to kick your about and turn in earlier each night. But like me, you’ll probably know that this is easier said than done.

I’ve decided to take a different course of action to solving this problem. Knowing that actively fighting back against my ever increasing wrinkles and bags under my eyes would be no easy task, I decided to enlist the help of a good friend who has gone through similar problems in the past.

Her recommendation was to try some different under treatment products. One such suggestion was an aloe vera eye gel. She told me it had a really cooling effect (especially if you kept it in the fridge) and really helped combat all the nastiness under her eyes.

Her advice was sound to say the least. My eyes have had a wonderful transformation since using the product. Now I can have the best of both worlds – I can stay up late and not have my face pay the price. Win!
