Aging is one nightmare no one wants to see but it is inevitable and has to be dealt with before the symptoms start showing up. No one wants to get old, wrinkly and visibly aged. Your face is the first place where you can spot signs of aging whereas it is the last place you want them to show up. Aging does happen but some factors make the process start earlier than expected and make you age much faster than you naturally do. It is imperative you avoid treading certain paths to prevent premature aging and stay young for as long as possible.

One of the primary reasons you age early is improper and unhealthy diet. When was the last time you bought some fresh fruits in a large quantity and went on a fruit-only diet for a day or two? I am sure you don’t remember. Fresh fruits and raw vegetables aid in preventing premature aging as they provide your skin with essential nutrients, which a cooked meal cannot. Comprise your food of brightly colored fruits like berries (strawberry, blueberry, etc.), citrus fruits (orange, guava, etc.) or any other fruit that you come across.

Avoid having food that is fried and full of sugar and fats. They damage skin and promote premature aging. Having a pizza here and a burger there is acceptable but when this poison enters your body almost every day then you know what happens- wrinkles. The sun causes another major blow to your skin. The sun’s UV rays are infamous for their ill effects on the outer and inner layer of the skin. Long durations in the sun will gradually cause wrinkles and pigmentation on your skin resulting in premature aging.

Smokers beware! Smoking brings along wrinkles and aging apart from having numerous ill effects on overall health. Smoking blocks the flow of required amount of oxygen in the blood and skin. For a young skin and to prevent premature aging, avoid active as well as passive smoking. Yes, it can be tough initially but when you see the results you won’t regret your decision. Another must-do for a young, wrinkle-free skin is to take sufficient sleep. Since sleeping is the only time when the body recuperates from its wear and tear of the day, at least 7-8 hours of sound sleep is another prerequisite for a great looking, young skin.
