Six Things That Make Us Look Older
Stress, pollution, smoking, sunlight together with alcohol and processed foods can compromise the skinís immune system, leaving it open to damage and to visible signs of premature aging.

Your lifestyle, as well as your eating habits is very important for your beauty and health.

1. Stress
The stress really makes us older. It??�s proven that the stressful situations decrease your protective powers of your organism and the skin cells age faster. If you feel strenuous take a deep breathe and close your eyes for seconds. Stress compromises your ability to fight off disease and infection, makes it difficult to conceive a baby. It often leads to headache, fatigue, high blood pressure, weight loss or weight gain, skin problems, nail biting, teeth grinding, smoking, dark circles under the eyes, wrinkling, and increase in acne problem during stressed phases. It can even rewire the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to everyday pressures and mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Stress tightens facial muscles and cause expression lines. Constant creasing causes micro-tears in the skin which themselves cause inflammation that damages collagen. Stress can also contribute to acne by stimulating the glands to plump out more oil leading to more breakouts.

2. Alcohol
Excessive alcohol intake is among the main causes of premature aging. The alcohol consummation is pernicious not only for your beauty but also for your organism. Scientific studies have proven that alcohol dilates the blood vessel in the skin which leads to sagging of the skin and wrinkling. Excessive alcohol intake worsens acne, causes broken capillaries and leads to skin rashes, red spots and itchiness. Alcohol makes skin appear blotchy and seriously dehydrates your skin and body, destroy the body supply of vitamin A. Drinking too much also interrupts your beauty sleep.A glass of red wine at night may be beneficial as it acts as antioxidant.

3. Sedentary way of life
The lack of enough exercising often leads serious health problems. You don??�t have to spend 3 hours at the gym every day, a 30 minute-walk a day will be enough to keep your body in good shape. Not exercising regularly decrease the blood circulation, influence the venous and lymphatic system which usually leads to cellulite. Recent studies show that most older adults / around 57 %/ arenít getting enough activity ??� they don??�t walk, don??�t exercise and don??�t follow a balanced diet. A sedentary way of life seriously affects our state of healthy. It results in muscle loss, lowered aerobic capacity, high blood pressure, increase risk of developing dietetics, weight gain, decrease muscle strength and flexibility.

4. Smoking
Smoking is one of the worst thing we can do to our bodies and is one of the main reasons for premature aging. Not only does it increase the risk of cancer and heart disease but it you have a family, passive smoking can also damage the health of the people closest to you. Smoking is bad not only for your health, but also for your beauty. It decreases the flow of blood to the skin, leaving your complexion dull, promotes wrinkles and fine lines, deprives your skin of oxygen and robs your body of essential vitamins. Smoking constructs the tiny capillaries that nourish the skin and ages skin faster than anything else apart from sun damage. Smoking results in broken capillaries, dull complexion, premature aging, reduction of collagen which is essential for a healthy skin, loss of elasticity and thinning of the skin.

5. Excessive sun exposure
The sun is enemy number one of our skin. Excessive sun exposure always dries out your skin and increase the risk of skin cancer. The sun is the leading cause of dark, brown spots on the skin which can easily ruin a radiant skin. Sun radiation is responsible for most of the unpleasant skin conditions as appearance of brown spots, appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, sagging of the skin, premature aging, enlargement of blood capillaries on the face. Excessive sun exposure often leads to rashes, itchiness, dryness and skin cancer. That??�s why it??�s essential to use a sunscreen every day, even during the winter months.

6. Polluted air
The poisonous caused primarily by vehicle exhausts influence on your organism. The air pollution not only irritates your lungs but also affects the way you look. When we breathe in air pollution, very fine particles easily enter our lungs where they can cause many serious problems ??� breathing problems, asthma, and nausea. High polluted air irritates the lungs, cause nausea, coughing and chest pain, damages blood vessels, affects the immune system. Air pollution seriously affects the skin ??� it increases the oxidation of the sebum, causes pimples formation, allergies and rashes. Air pollution can also aggravate health problems for the elderly and others with heart or respiratory diseases. Smoggy air may lack moisture and cause skin dehydration.

I got a couple things that make us look older, and I totally agree with what has been pointed out for sure! But I think a high consumption of alcohol, heavy make-up, and over all bodily abuse tend to make girls age faster than if it had been for boys. I very much think that we girls really need to take good care!

i'm a health freak by nature so i absolutely MUST eat healthy and exercise. I avoid smoking, drinking, and sun exposure as much as possible [ugh my mom makes sure i always have sun screen in my bag...she instilled an intense fear in me of skin cancer tho i honestly don't think i'm prone to it -_-] but stress is my downfalllllll!! lol. I easily get stressed when i'm juggling too many things at once and during school..i tend to take hard classes so that adds to my burden. even my friends' problems can stress me out. >< i guess at this stage in life stress is unavoidable but i do try to minimize it when i can.

wow you sure know that. My mother said to me that my hair style is one of things that change my age... Well, I don't understand it at first though. When my hair is long, I'm look older than my age, but when I cut my hair shorter I look much younger than my age.

That's true and women should be more aware of this since we mature first and hence we age earlier.
