Factors That Could Make You Age Quicker Than Normal

You may be surprised to learn that the visible indications of aging in your skin are not necessarily correlated with your chronological age. Intrinsic factors, such as hereditary influences and general health, and extrinsic factors, such as excessive sun exposure, smoking, and even regular sipping via a straw, determine the rate at which your skin ages. About 30% of how you age is dictated by genetics, therefore you may influence the way your skin ages in many ways. The following are risk factors for premature aging, as outlined by Healthline.

Insufficient sleep is a major contributor to premature aging. While sleep allows your body to rejuvenate and regenerate cells, a lack of sleep or insufficient sleep time might have negative consequences.

Your diet is another contributor to the onset of aging before your time. Consuming a lot of sugar and processed carbohydrates as you get older can be quite damaging to your skin. That's why it's so important to constantly fuel your body with nourishing foods.

Alcohol dehydrates the body when consumed in excess, and this dehydration can lead to skin loss or sag, therefore regular alcohol usage and caffeine consumption are bad lifestyles that can increase your risk of premature aging.

Fourth, some environmental toxins can create or exacerbate pigment spots and wrinkles on your skin, both of which can speed up the aging process.

Last but not least, stress is a known contributor to aging since it causes the body to release inflammatory chemicals and disrupts sleep patterns.
