FACTORS THAT ACCELERATE AGING.

Ageing or aging is the process of becoming older. In humans, ageing represents the accumulation of changes in a human being over time, encompassing physical, psychological, and social changes.

In the modern world,nobody wants to age;or let me say noboody wants to look older than they are!

The following are some things that causing early aging and can be controlled:

  • Alcohol use.Alcohol also depletes our body of vitamin A, which plays an important role in keeping our skin firm and youthful.It can cause premature aging to our eyes. Drinking causes irritation of the blood vessels in our eyes.Over time, excessive drinking repeatedly robs your body of the nutrients it needs for eye health.
  • Tobacco use.The nicotine in cigarettes causes narrowing of the blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin. This impairs blood flow to your skin. With less blood flow, your skin doesn’t get as much oxygen and important nutrients, such as vitamin A. As a result, skin begins to sag and wrinkle prematurely because of smoking.
  • Increased stress levels.Chronic stress accelerates premature aging by shortening DNA telomeres.As telomeres become shorter, their structural integrity weakens, which causes cells to age faster and die younger.
  • High processed sugar intake.When you eat more sugar than your cells can process, the excess sugar molecules combine with proteins, creating “advanced glycation end products” (appropriately referred to as “AGES”) AGES may damage your skin’s collagen (the protein that keeps skin firm and youthful).
  • Lack of healthy fats.The bad fats cause free radical damage in the body, which promotes ageing, and in addition, they damage the integrity of the cell membranes even further. The good, natural fats help keep our cell membranes strong.
  • Poor sleep habits.Lack of sleep impacts memory and cognitive performance. Now here’s another good reason to get enough sleep: sleep deprivation also could cause your skin to age faster.
  • Lack of physical activity.Aging is associated with reduced fitness, weaker bones, reduced insulin sensitivity, reduced muscle strength, and reduced balance. Lack of physical activity is also associated with all of those things.But there is also “pathogeric” aging, which refers to pathological aging (e.g. aging that’s unecessary/unhealthy).

Coffee is a source of nutrients and antioxidants that may benefit some parts of our body such as:

  • Soften lips.Applying coffee to your skin will improve blood circulation, which will improve its health, glow, and radiance.Coffee infused lip balm can soften your lips. Infusing coconut oil with coffee and then adding it to cocoa butter will create a great homemade lip balm, which is sure to your lips soft and healthy.
  • Reduce dark circles.Since coffee is naturally full of antioxidants, it’s a great ingredient to use as an eye serum to firm, tighten, and restore the skin. The caffeine in coffee is great for reducing dark circles and puffiness by improving blood circulation. So, not only does coffee wake you up, but it wakes your skin up too!
  • Makes hair shiny.Caffeine is good for your scalp and your hair follicles. It helps hair growth but has no effect, good or bad, on your hair strands. … Since your hair is already jet black, the coffee shouldn’t make it any darker. However, it will still provide shine and stimulate hair growth.
  • Makes feet beautiful.Add 2-cups of coffee to 1-gallon of water and soak for 10 to 15 minutes, rinse feet, dry and moisturize. This remedy works well warm or cool. Always be sure to dry your feet thoroughly (between toes) with a clean, cotton towel. May you walk on gentle roads in peace.
  • Exfoliate dead skin cells.Coffee grounds make a great exfoliant. The grounds do not dissolve in water, which makes them good at scrubbing away dead skin cells. Caffeic acid, an antioxidant, may boost collagen levels and reduce the premature aging of cells.
  • Treat dandruff.Simply add some coffee grounds to your favorite deep conditioner to the point of feeling the grounds and mix. Apply the coffee scrub mixture to the scalp using circular motions while leaving on scalp for five to ten minutes. Rinse off and wash hair with shampoo before styling as usual.
  • Promotes youthful skin.Coffee is rich with anti-oxidants, a compound that enables cells to better repair themselves in the wake of the damage done by free radicals.The microbial properties in coffee help ward off germs in the skin. Its caffeic acid boosts collagen levels which in turn reduces the aging process.

  2. Do 20 cardio daily.Aerobic exercise (cardio) is an effective way to improve your health and burn calories.It’s one of the most effective forms of exercise for reducing belly fat.
  3.

Repeat each set three to six times.
  4. Climb stairs.Walking up the stairs is an aerobic exercise that burns calories, so it will help you lose belly fat if you do it as part of a regular exercise program.
  5. Eat 5 small meals a day.Should be a balanced diet.
  6. Do 50 pushups a day.The muscles in the abdomen work toward stabilizing the body in the pushup position, which increases stomach definition.The beauty of push-ups is that, done right, they will work the deeper abdominal muscles.
  7. Enrich your diet with fiber.Eating foods rich in soluble fiber may help you lose belly fat. Soluble fiber helps keep your gut bacteria healthy and promotes overall fat loss by reducing your appetite.

REASONS FOR PREMATURE AGING.

Premature ageing syndromes, also known as progeria, include two very rare inherited conditions, Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome and Werner syndrome. In both conditions, skin changes that indicate premature ageing include: Atrophy (skin thinning and loss of elasticity) Loss of cutaneous fat. Wrinkling.

This may be due to:

  1. You are eating more sugar.Excess processed sugar in your diet, even in small amounts can cause dark circles, wrinkles, dehydrate skin and can fast track the aging process.When you eat more sugar than your cells can process, the excess sugar molecules combine with proteins, creating “advanced glycation end products”appropriately referred to as “AGES”).Ultimately, AGES may damage your skin’s collagen (the protein that keeps skin firm and youthful).
  2. You dont use sunscreen.Dermatologists recommend to patient to wear sunscreen all the time.Wearing sunscreen on a regular basis can help prevent this. Harmful UV rays penetrate clouds and get to your skin if it’s not protected.
  3. Putting your face on pillow while  sleeping.Wrinkles are caused by the loss of collagen and elasticity, which reduces skin volume. But applying repeated pressure (such as sleeping with the side of your face on a pillow) or muscle motions (such as laughing and squinting) against the collagen will promote its breakdown, eventually leading to visible lines.
  4. Drinks less water.When your skin is less than 10% water it is considered to be dehydrated. Drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day is vital in hydrating the inside of your body.When your skin becomes dehydrated you experience symptoms of dryness, flakiness, roughness, irritation, and cracking; hence the look of prematurely aged skin.
  5. Tension.Chronic stress accelerates premature aging by shortening DNA telomeres. , long-term unemployment, anxiety attacks… … As telomeres become shorter, their structural integrity weakens, which causes cells to age faster and die younger.
  6. You sleep with make up.Sleeping with makeup on is not a good idea.Makeup can trap dirt and environmental pollutants inside the skin, and this type of environmental stress can result in increased free radicals which can cause DNA mutations, collagen degradation, and, over time, can result in premature aging.
  7. Smoking and drinking.The nicotine in cigarettes causes narrowing of the blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin. This impairs blood flow to your skin. With less blood flow, your skin doesn’t get as much oxygen and important nutrients, such as vitamin A. As a result, skin begins to sag and wrinkle prematurely because of smoking.Alcohol also depletes our body of vitamin A, which plays an important role in keeping our skin firm and youthful. Alcohol can cause premature aging to our eyes. Drinking causes irritation of the blood vessels in our eyes.
