Aging is a natural physiological process. However, there are many examples when thirty-year-old women look older than their forty-year-old friends. Many everyday habits could age you prematurely. Often, these behaviors could make you physically appear much older than your years.
Below are 10 bad habits you need to avoid. Let’s read and make some changes in our everyday lifestyle:
Sipping through a straw
Surprised? So are we. Pursing your lips to drink through a straw can in fact form creases around your mouth, carving deep lines that’ll most likely stay there for good.
Sweet affects not only the figure, but also the skin. It leads to loss of a healthy complexion, swelling, skin flaccidity and even circles under the eyes.
At night, these cells work to repair damage it endured during the day like being exposed to sunlight, pollution, or a breakout. Skimping on sleep throws the entire process off, and your skin can’t prep for the next day. Your skin gets stressed and is unable to complete the repair process, ultimately leading to less healthy cells and premature aging.
Try to clock in at least eight hours a nights.
Cigarette smoking not only damages your lungs, it also speeds up your aging process. The harmful smoke depletes your body of Vitamin C which causes skin dryness and formation of wrinkles on the face.
The number one cause of premature aging are the UV rays. UV light is present even when it’s cloudy or raining. That’s why it’s important to protect the skin by wearing sunblock with SPF between 30 and 50 on a daily basis.
Rubbing your eyes
It’s a bad habit that you need to stop! Constantly tugging, pulling, and rubbing your eye area will cause the surrounding skin to darken. This could even lead to premature wrinkles.
Excessive consumption of alcohol
Gulping down a whole bottle of wine or alcohol can definitely take a toll on your health. If you think that drinking alcohol can solve your problems, you are highly mistaken. Drinking is and will never be a solution to your problems.
Watching too much TV
Every hour of television watched, adults cut their life expectancy by 22 minutes.
When you sit for more than 30 minutes at a time, your body deposits sugar into your cells which makes it more likely to be overweight.
Wearing excessive amounts of makeup, can clog pores and cause breakouts. Plus, overusing skin products with fragrances, irritating chemicals, and alcohol agents may dry out the skin by removing its natural oils, which causes premature lines and wrinkles.
Chronic stress triggers the release of free radicals, the unstable molecules that damage cells and are responsible for aging.
Over time, stress can delay healing,
