  1. Living on your smartphone

    When you’re looking at your phone do you bring your phone to eyelevel or do you tilt your head down to look at it?

This is a sure way to get crow’s feet.

  1. Sleeping on your stomach and sides

    When you snuggle with your pillow consistently, you push on your face causing creases which will eventually turn into permanent wrinkles.
