The rate of aging is closely related to the daily lifestyle and how to treat your body. Therefore, changing wrong habits can slow down aging. The American magazine “men’s health” recently summed up “nine wrong habits to accelerate aging”.
error 1: I don’t like drinking water
Drinking enough water every day can regulate the digestive system and promote immune function. A recent study published in the frontiers of human neuroscience in the United States found that drinking enough water can even improve emotional status. In terms of anti-aging, the greatest benefit of drinking water is to moisturize and clean the skin. Experts suggest that you should drink 6-8 glasses of water every day.
error 2: don’t wear sunscreen
If you don’t wear sunscreen for a long time (including in winter), you may accelerate skin aging due to excessive sunlight. A study published in the American Journal of the annals of Internal Medicine found that even in middle age, it is extremely important to apply sunscreen (with a sun protection index of at least 30) when going out to delay skin aging. Of course, the sooner you develop the habit of sunscreen, the better your skin will be protected.
error 3: don’t wash your face before going to bed
Not washing your face thoroughly before going to bed is harmful to your health. Because at the end of the day, a lot of dirt and oil will accumulate in the skin and pores. If you don’t wash your face thoroughly before going to bed, pores are likely to be blocked at night, and you may feel skin tingling after waking up, and your skin tone is extremely unhealthy.
error 4: skin is not moisturizing
To do a good job of skin moisturizing, you don’t have to use expensive moisturizing cream. You can apply ordinary face cream to protect skin every day. Do not choose moisturizers that contain irritating chemicals. Experts suggest that smearing a little coconut oil on your face every morning is natural, cost-effective and highly moisturizing.
error 5: eating too much processed food
Modern American style diet is the main cause of premature aging, and processed food contains a lot of sugar. Experts suggest that natural whole grain foods should be selected as much as possible, and processed foods should be eaten as little as possible.
error 6: wash your hair every day
Washing your hair every day will reduce the natural oil in your hair, making it easier for your hair to become dry, forked and tarnished. Generally speaking, washing your hair 1-2 times a week can keep your hair soft and shiny. In addition, warm water should be used when bathing. If the water temperature is too high, it will not only lead to dry hair and skin, but also cause skin damage.
error 7: ignore eye sunscreen
Eye skin is more delicate than other parts of the face, and it is also more vulnerable to injury. If you go out in the sun, you should wear sunglasses to protect your eye skin from sunburn. Experts explained that people are more likely to squint when they don’t wear sunglasses, and squinting for a long time will also increase skin wrinkles.
error 8: frequent restaurants
Frequent eating out may lead to more high-fat, high salt and high sugar foods, which is harmful to overall health. A study published in the British journal Lancet Oncology found that men who maintain a healthy diet, exercise regularly and are good at reducing stress have significantly slower cell aging. A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals helps to repair and strengthen body tissues from the inside out, making people feel young. A healthy diet must include whole grains, fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
error 9: too little high-quality fat
Avocado (avocado) and nuts and other foods contain monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids that are beneficial to skin, heart and other health. Such foods also contain a large amount of antioxidants, important fatty acids and vitamin E, which can effectively combat free radical damage and prevent premature aging. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that eating a handful of nuts a day is beneficial to prolonging life.
