Crow feet and laugh lines are usually seen as a sign of aging; however, these signs may be premature. Over the years, your skin loses elasticity and develops lines and wrinkles. This process is natural. However, certain activities and dietary habits can kick start this natural process in the early years of your life.

The Sun

Sun rays arethe biggest contributor to aging. The UV rays emitting from the sun penetrate deep within your skin. This leads to pigmentation, sunburn, loss of collagen and wrinkling. Loss of collagen makes the skin loose and prone to wrinkling and discoloration. Dermatologists recommend limiting sun exposure with help of sunblock and proper coverage.

Back in 2017, 7,200 people were diagnosed with skin cancer. Take necessary precautions to protect yourself from the sun.

Lack of sleep

Sleep is essential for your mind and body. It regulates your daily bodily function and flushes out toxins from your body. This enables your skin to stay spot-free and smooth. Proper sleeping cycle improves your body’s ability to stay hydrated and help reduce weight. Get 6–8 hours of sleep to prevent early sign of aging.


Your worries and sorrows reflect on your skin. High cortisol level reduces your skin’s ability to maintain moisture. Moreover, high stress level means blood-sugar level is high which can prove bad for your skin. High sugar level depletes collagen found in your skin.

Collagen keeps the skin tight and even-toned. When it’s lacking, your skin starts to sag and wrinkle. Find ways to relax and de-stress your body and mind for a healthy skin.


Sugar is the poison that can cause weight gain, diabetes, skin damage and a lot more. Once consumed, sugar isattached to different proteins in body. Collagen and elastin are one of those proteins. Sugar weakens the functionality of these proteins and leads to fine lines and saggy appearance of the skin.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is uncomfortable and at times it feels as if it might crack and fall of your face. Multiple factors strip away skin’s moisture, which makes it dry.
