The day it happens to you, when you look in the mirror and see an age spot or a wrinkle, you might feel a mix of dread and anxiety. Your skin is exposed to the elements every day, and these factors can cause premature aging. Well, aging starts at birth so, the term “premature aging” is kind of an oxymoron. We prefer to speak of accelerated aging and put a stop to it with the best night serum. But what causes premature aging? What accelerates the appearance of the signs of aging? Here are seven common influences that lead to this problem.

Stress

Believe it or not, the mind plays a significant role in whether we age gracefully or not. People who are happy look and feel younger. The more you feed into joy and optimism, the more youthful you’ll appear.

Smoking and Drinking

Cigarettes and booze are both enemies of the skin: cigarette smoke contains thousands of free radicals and hinders the nutrition of the skin by being vasoconstrictor. Alcohol triggers an inflammatory response, which is the first single cause of accelerated aging. For a younger glow, lay off both of these hazardous lifestyle habits.

Excessive Cold

While you can anticipate an accelerated aging process by basking in the sun’s harmful UV rays, which is why we offer an SPF based day cream, spending excessive time in cold climates causes accelerated aging as well. It triggers an inflammatory response, and accelerates the process of appearance of the signs of aging. Rather than creating tougher skin, the cold can cause skin to appear weathered, thin, and wrinkled.

Diet

As the age-old adage goes, “You are what you eat.” Choosing a diet high in fruits and veggies creates an internal environment that provides glowing skin for years to come due to high doses of antioxidants and vitamins.

Weight

Being highly underweight or overweight can contribute to the aging process. In fact, being too thin drastically lowers the natural fats in your face, letting skin sag. Maintain a healthy weight to avoid premature aging.

Genetics

Our DNA determines the degree to which our bodies produce the enzymes that remove the damage caused by the outside elements to our skin. The process of aging is the consequence of lifestyle as much as the aging of a car is dictated by how it is driven and by how well it is designed

Lack of Sleep

It’s critical to get the recommended eight hours of sleep each night. Prolonged lack of sleep can accelerate aging. It’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with the best skincare products to combat premature aging.
