Cigarette smoke damages the elastin in the skin around the mouth. The act of smoking itself causes the formation of wrinkles around the mouth as well. Even though yellow teeth are a common side effect of smoking, it’s not the only oral problem caused by smoking. Tooth loss is common in heavy smokers, and having fewer teeth can make you seem older than you are.
2.Frequent Sun Exposure
Sunlight is known to increase serotonin levels which can make you happier. However, too much sunlight can age your skin faster. The UV (ultraviolet) light contained in sunlight is responsible for this. It causes wrinkles and rough skin, among other things. UV light can damage skin in different ways, too, like by depressing the natural antioxidants in the skin, which can protect the body from harmful molecules called free radicals.
Prolonged stress caused by depression and anxiety can make you age quicker. The reason is that stress can shorten the length of each DNA strand which in turn speeds up the aging process.
4.Not Getting Enough Sleep
Adults that don’t sleep enough on a daily basis age mentally as well as physically. Aside from your skin aging and the full range of health problems caused by sleep deprivation, there is also a significant decline in cognitive performance in adults who don’t get enough sleep.
Skin dehydration is a significant cause of premature aging. Our organs shut down when we don’t get enough water, and skin gets affected, too. Moisturizing can help keep skin healthy, but nothing can substitute the benefits of drinking enough water daily.
