Posted By:

Do you sometimes feel anxious about the fact that, in a few years, your youthful days will be over and soon age will take over all the fun?

Do you fear that your youthful looks will fade away eventually, marring your appearance with undesirable wrinkles and age spots?

Well, don't we all secretly fear growing old? As inevitable as ageing may be, if one does all the right things and takes care of his/her health and appearance, signs of ageing can be put on hold for a longer time!

None of us like to develop signs of ageing on our skin such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, pigmentation, sagging skin, etc.

Looking older can also make us feel like we are old and may discourage us from doing certain things that we otherwise liked doing when we were younger.

Many a times, due to various reasons like a poor diet, lack of nutrition, lack of exercise and a proper beauty regimen, some of us tend to develop the signs of skin ageing from a very young age!

So, here are a few surprising causes that can lead to the development of premature skin ageing, have a look!


1. Over-Exercising

While exercising is good for your body, overdoing it can limit the oxygen and blood flow in certain parts of your upper body, like your face, thereby causing premature wrinkling of the skin.


2. Job Stress

One of the main reasons for the development of wrinkles and lines on the face is having a stressful job, especially if it involves spending a lot of hours in front of a computer!


3. Air Conditioning

Spending a lot of time in an AC environment is also known to dry out your skin, leading to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines early in one's life.


4. Not Using Sunglasses

If you do not wear sunglasses while you go out in the sun, the sensitive tissue around your eyes can get damaged, leading to the formation of fine lines and dark circles around your eyes.


5. Sipping Through A Straw

If you have the habit of drinking your drinks through a straw on a regular basis, we will want you to know that the pursing of your lips while sipping on the straw may lead to the development of lines around your mouth!


6. Wearing Contact Lens

When you wear a contact lens, you have to pull on the sensitive skin around your eyes, which when done on a regular basis can lead to the formation of lines and wrinkles in that area.


7. Weight Loss

Extreme weight loss, where a person loses a lot of weight very quickly, can lead to the sagging of skin, making him/her appear older with early ageing signs being visible on the skin.
