Ageing is inevitable and as the years go by various functions of our body are bound to diminish leading to various diseases. How we eat, drink, move could be playing a significant role in how are ageing, Hindustan Times reported.

Dr Sonali Kohli, Consultant Dermatologist and Venereologist at the Dermatology department of Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre tells us 4 everyday habits that are making us age faster:

Inflammatory Diet:

People who follow an inflammatory diet could face earlier cell death which is responsible for cellular aging.

Smoking and Alcohol:

Addictions like smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and poor diet make our body more acidic which accelerates the aging process. Diet which is rich in antioxidants, omega-3s like walnuts can all help with anti-aging.

Not Using Sunscreen:

There is a thing called solar damage which leads to solar ageing which leads to immense collagen breakdown. Use sunscreen with high sun protection factors including SPF and PPD which is measured by our triple plus sign or other measurements.

Not Exercising

Exercise becomes a very essential component of anti-aging. Exercise helps us to bring new muscle strength along with maintaining the tone and texture of the existing muscles.
