Are you aging faster than your age? Some every day habits you have could be responsible for making you age quickly.

Here are 5 common habits that make you age faster

1. You eat too much sugary foods

Eating too much sugary foods isn’t good for you as it add years to your face. Sugar molecules attach themselves to protein fibers in each of our cells and this results in dark circles under the eyes, loss of tone, wrinkles and increase in fine lines.

2. You don’t use sunscreen

Spending time under the sun without protecting your skin with sunscreen makes you age faster. Exposure to UV rays from the sun damages the skin and makes you age faster.

3. You don’t get enough sleep

Depriving yourself of adequate sleep results in dark bags under the eyes which makes you look older than you really are. It’s advisable you get at least seven hours of sleep daily.

4. Stress

Stress from your hectic life takes a toll on your body and makes you look older than you really are. Stress triggers the release of free radicals which are responsible for aging. Reduce the stress you face everyday and avoid doing everything at the same time.

5. You sleep with your face on the pillow

Sleeping with your face on your pillow makes you look older than you really are because it creates wrinkles. It’s recommended you sleep on your back or use a satin pillowcase to help keep your skin smooth.
