Avoid Premature Aging: 5 Seemingly Harmless Daily Habits That Are Aging You

Never underestimate the impact of your everyday habit, some seemingly harmless habits may accelerate premature aging, determining the fate of your skin youthfulness. Research has proven that pace, stress and lifestyle is the cause of behavioural ageing (also called epigenetic), which marks the skin even more than genetic ageing. Looking in the mirror and thinking you are aging faster than you should? It is time to evaluatte your routines and avoid premature aging. Here are major daily habits that are aging you.


1. Like eating sugary treats

Aside from gaining weight, eating too many sweets will also add years to your face. Sugar molecules attach themselves to protein fibers in our cells causing cell damage. The process is called glycation, which can result in skin puffiness, more wrinkles and a loss of facial contours. Skip sugary treats if you wish to keep your youthful baby face.



2. Stressed life

The stress from your hectic life may be taxing your body. Stress causes hormonal changes in our body and can result in numerous skin problems, such as acne, allergy and itching. What’s worse? Stress triggers the release of free radicals, causing oxidative damage to cell lifecycle of the skin, your skin may age at an accelerated pace. The renewal of the skin is slowed down and your skin looks dull and grey.


3. Lack of Sleep

Skin functions as an important barrier from external stressors such as environmental toxins and sunrays. Sleeplessness can accelerate aging and weaken immune system, especially among those who are obese. Poor sleep quality can weaken the skin's ability to repair itself and remove toxins at night, speeding up the signs of skin aging. Thus, enjoy a beauty sleep during 11pm and 3am, the key time for cellular regeneration, is one of the crucial habits to keep youthful skin.


4.Sleep with your face in the pillow

Sleeping with your face smashed into the pillow can create wrinkles and accelerate aging like ironing wrinkles into the skin. With age, the connective tissue and collagen in your face become less supportive. When you keep this same sleeping position night after night, your skin would not smoothen out as quickly as it did when you were young. You may find a few crease lines when wake up. For stomach sleepers, it is often forehead lines; for side-sleepers, it creates vertical creases down your cheeks. To keep your skin smooth, sleep on your back or sleep with a satin pillowcase. 

  5. Overexposure to the sunUVA and UVB appear to be one of the critical and damaging factors of skin aging. Sunrays cause photo-aging, and result in freckles, age spots, wrinkles, loose and sag skin. UV light is present when it is cloudy or raining. Protect your skin by wearing sunscreen anytime you go outdoors.
