Premature ageing of the skin can be caused by extended exposure to UVA radiation, as well as artificial UV sources such as tanning which is known as photo-ageing. It mostly affects fair-skinned people with blond or red hair, as well as those who spend a lot of time under the sun. Photoaging can happen on any part of the body that is exposed to the sun on a regular basis.
Sunbathing, tanning booths and outdoor sports expose you to ultraviolet (UV) light, which promotes the formation of wrinkles. UV light damages the skin's collagen and elastin fibres - the connective tissue that supports the skin. This results in the skin getting weaker and less flexible when this layer is destroyed.
Smoking is another element that can accelerate the ageing process as smoking lowers the blood supply to the skin. Alcohol, on the other hand, dehydrates the skin, which makes it more prone to wrinkles. Sugar and processed carbs can speed up skin ageing, whereas eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can help prevent skin damage.
Working out on a daily basis is said to be one of the most effective ways to relax your body and mind. Furthermore, exercise improves sleep quality in adults by shortening the time it takes to fall asleep.
If you're constantly anxious, your body is repeatedly producing stress hormones, which can lead to accelerated ageing. Stress can be minimized primarily through lifestyle adjustments, such as eating well, sleeping well, and meditating, all of which have a significant impact on the biological and cosmetic ageing processes.
Chrono ageing refers to the amount of time that has transpired since your birth to the current date. This is the natural ageing process that decreases the ability of the body to repair itself.
