10 Bad Habits That Make You Look Older

You don’t have to go under the needles to preserve your youth. It’s as easy as getting rid of certain habits.

We all age eventually. Maybe it’s the gray hair appearing on our temples or the wrinkles starting to appear on our foreheads. The passage of time is inevitable and will affect your body in some way. There are options like Botox and retinol that can help keep our skin looking younger. The bad news is that certain bad habits can accelerate aging and make you look older faster. These are the bad habits you need to avoid.

1. Sunbathing is too common

We are not referring to sunbathing only during summer. It is actually the sun’s radiation that your skin gets every day that causes the most damage over the long-term. Many people forget to apply sun creams which allows for skin to be exposed to the sun’s harmful rays. This can lead to cancerous skin growth.

2. It is possible to not take it enough

Studies also show that vitamin D deficiency, which is caused by a lack of sunlight exposure, can lead to certain types cancers. Use sunscreen, no matter what you do.

3. Insufficient sleep

You can’t have perfect, smooth skin if you don’t get 8 hours sleep each night.

4. Avoid using moisturizers (or don’t use the right one).

Every person’s skin is different. Some people have oily skin while others have dry skin. No matter what skin type you have, you’re doing your skin a disservice if you don’t use the right moisturizer. There are many moisturizers on the market, so pick the one that suits you best.

5. Too cheap soaps

It’s true that soap can be costly. You can’t use inexpensive soaps. It will only leave your skin with residue and end up absorbing. So buy a decent medium soap. It is much better if the soap is exfoliating.

6. Don’t exercise

Exercising is good for your skin and muscles. Exercise has been proven to prolong skin health by increasing blood flow to the outer layers. This in turn helps increase oxygen levels and eliminate harmful waste. Another reason to go to the gym?

7. Stress

Scientists have discovered that stress and elevated cortisol levels are linked to many diseases including hypertension, heart disease, hypertension and decreased libido. It is no surprise that stress can also cause skin problems, such as a decrease in collagen.

8. Do not eat healthy foods

Good stuff: Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, fiber. As they say, you are what your eat.

9. Consuming excessive alcohol

Did you know that people who drink a lot appear older than those who don’t? That mystery is solved.

10. Smoking

Do you really need another reason?
