A bad hairstyle can cut through all that confidence and leave you looking older. The good news is that it’s pretty easy to update your look without a lot of time or money. As you get older, wardrobe and style choices that worked when you were younger may no longer be serving you well, Right? This goes for both men and women. Without knowing it, you may be looking older than you are. This could cause others to treat you as older and potentially hold you back from employment opportunities and advancements. This also can make you feel like you are not up to your game or comfortable in your skin. Let us look onto the things that make you look older, so scroll down:
Position of sleeping:
Believe it or not, sleeping with your face pressed against the pillow forms small lines and wrinkles that will eventually become permanently etched on your face. Sleeping on your side will cause wrinkles to appear on the cheeks and chin area. Ideally, sleeping on your back is the best way to stop wrinkles that form from creases that occur when you sleep in other positions
A moderate amount of alcohol (One drink per day for women and two drinks for men) is good for you and provides your body with health benefits, excessive alcohol causes damage to both the skin color and texture, especially around the eyes and nose. Excessive drinking cause’s permanent dark circles under the eyes, bulging eyes, a bloated face, and broken capillaries around the nose, giving it a rather red, bulbous appearance. Excessive drinking breaks down the tissues deep in the skin and causes permanent damage. Limit your alcohol intake, and save your skin from further damage.
You might not think that your state of mind has anything to do with the aging of your skin, but it does! Prolonged feelings of depression have been found in studies to cause a shortening of our telomeres, which are the very ends of our DNA strands. When our telomeres become shorter, this affects the DNA in every cell in the body, stopping the division of cells and premature cell death.
Sleepless nights

Why is your hair thinning?

There can be a lot of things because of which you might face an issue of hair thinning, this dilemma is seen oftenly amongst woman but men are also a part of it and face the same issues and problems! Hair loss in women is much more prevalent than you may think. Women have become experts at masking the issue with hairstyles and hair pieces, hats and scarves. While as I mentioned above as well hair loss in men is a more common place and certainly more socially acceptable, women’s hair loss is often swept under the rug. It’s something we don’t talk about with others, it can be incredibly embarrassing, and something we always want to ignore or hide from people. If you are experiencing hair loss or serious hair thinning, I urge you to do something about it before it’s too late. You can always consult a doctor or to start, you need to determine why you’re losing your hair. There are many reasons why you are losing your hair quite oftenly. The reasons might be:
Hormonal Imbalance:
Hormones, such as abnormal levels of androgens like male hormones normally produced by both men and women. This could be because of thyroid hormone imbalances, or pregnancy or postpartum hormones are probably the most common causes of hair loss that have been noticed in a while. Postpartum hair loss is extremely common, and in many women as they approach and go through menopause. Changes in birth control methods can also affect your hair’s thickness. This might be one of the reasons from the list.
Heredity or Genes, from both male and female parents, may influence a person’s predisposition to male or female pattern baldness. This might be caused due to the elderly person in your family might be facing such issue so, being a part of the family and sharing the same or some genes you also might face the issue or problem. So unfortunately, your DNA may be to blame for your hair loss, and there’s not a lot that can be done when it’s just a part of your genetic code. While genetic hair loss is more common in men, it can certainly happen to women as well.
Emotional Stress:
This could be one of the most common issues which have been noticed and mostly people lose their hair due to this common symptom. Emotional stress could be a heart break, or stress related to family and many others. Treating and reducing your emotional stress, often with the help of a doctor or mental health professional, will eventually lead to the regrowth of your hair, over time.
Lack of Protein:
If you don’t get enough protein in your diet, your body may ration protein by shutting down hair growth, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. This can happen about two to three months after a drop in protein intake, they say. read more
