Do you look older than you are? Besides genetics, there are many factors that contribute to your perceived age.
Here we would like to share 5 habits you have to ditch to look younger without botox or cosmetic surgery. Remember that it’s never too late to start, so make these lifestyle changes now.
Using sun protection only on vacation
Overexposure to UV rays is the main cause of premature skin aging. To protect yourself from the sun’s harsh effects it’s important to wear your sunscreen even when it’s cloudy because clouds block as little as 20% of UV rays.
Saying no to sugar
We all know sugar is bad for us, but so is stress, and sometimes you have to give yourself a treat and surrender to your sweet tooth if this is what makes you happy.
Lack of sleep
Adults need at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Not getting enough sleep not only results in looking tired but also shortens your life. Experts recommend going to bed earlier if you perceive a lack of energy, mental slowness, or weight gain.
Stress due to lack of organization
Several studies have shown that chronic stress causes serious damage to the cells, which may speed up the aging process. Do not get bogged down, forget the saying ’leave for tomorrow what you can do today,’ and try to get everything done on time.
To prevent wrinkles it is essential to consume omega-3 fatty acids that help keep skin supple and smooth. A low-fat diet deprives us of this component, causing premature aging of the skin.
