Causes of premature aging of skin

The common causes of aging of our skin are,

  • Exposure to the sun and other elements
  • Smoking
  • A diet that is low on protein but rich in simple carbs
  • A diet that does not include fruits and vegetables
  • Genetics
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Lack of sleep
  • Overconsumption of alcohol
  • Dehydration
  • Unhealthy skin rituals

Symptoms of an aging skin

With age, you can see visible changes on your skin. Some of the most common symptoms are:

  • Skin becomes drier and rougher.
  • Skin might develop scratches and even benign tumors.
  • Skin starts sagging. This happens because of the loss of elastin or the elastic tissue in our skin.
  • Skin might also become transparent due to the thinning of the epidermis, which is the surface layer of the skin.
  • The skin tends to become fragile due to the flattening of the dermal tissues and the epidermis.
  • Skin gets bruised easily because of the thinning of the blood vessel walls.

If you spend more than 3 hours in front of your laptop, the skin around your eyes is sure to develop fine lines before you turn 30. Also your face becomes dull, dark and fatigued.
