Reasons Why Your Friends Might Look Younger Than You Do

anti-agingDo you sometimes worry that your friends are aging more gracefully than you are? Perhaps it’s all in your head, or maybe there’s some truth to your suspicions. There are a number of contributing factors that can lead to premature signs of aging. Before considering popular anti-aging treatments like laser skin resurfacing it may be a good idea to identify the underlying source. Check out some of the most common reasons for premature aging below.

Skincare Regimen

Taking care of your skin from a young age is an essential anti-aging component that shouldn’t be overlooked. Unfortunately, when we’re young, it’s easy to skip the sunscreen in lieu of a golden tan or to forget to wash dirt and grime from our faces on a nightly basis. Unfortunately, these seemingly harmless habits can wreak havoc on your skin in the long run. While it’s never too late to adopt a healthy skin care routine, it may a little difficult to play catch up with friends who started taking care of their skin at a young age. Laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels and microdermabrasion are great ways to rejuvenate your skin.

Healthy Habits

If you want to maintain youthful, glowing skin, tobacco use is a huge no-no. Smoking dehydrates the skin and has been shown to accelerate facial aging. If you’re a current smoker, quitting is probably long overdue. In addition to your smoking habits, eating habits are also important. Healthy eating will not only keep your waistline slim and slender as you get older; it can also have a huge impact on your skin. A low-fat diet that contains plenty of whole grain wheat, vegetables, fruits and lean proteins is the best way to keep your skin glowing.

Genetics

Even if you’ve been taking pristine care of your skin for years, genetics can still play a role in your body’s natural aging process. Check in with mom and dad to find out how they’ve aged over the years. Chances are that if your mom struggles with sagging skin, forehead wrinkles or eye bags, you will too. If this sounds like you, there are a number of cosmetic surgery procedures and non-invasive injections that can be used to correct significant signs of facial aging. The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate is to schedule a consultation with a qualified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist.
