Aging is an evitable part of our life but do you often feel like the clock is running a little too fast? Of course you can blame genetics and accept your defeat against aging but environment, lifestyle and skincare routines are to be equally blamed if your skin is aging rapidly. We don’t accept defeats against skin woes, do we? So here are five signs of premature aging and how you can tackle each.

Noticing deep lines on your skin when youre not laughing or moving your face in your early to mid-20s is a clear sign of premature skin aging. Your skin requires a collagen boosting product in your daily skin care routine. The Lakme Youth Infinity Skin Sculpting Day Creme SPF 15 PA ++ improves skin elasticity by enhancing skin renewal process.

Dehydrated and dull skin
 

Dehydrated and dull skin

Skin that lacks suppleness appears tired and dull all the time. While external moisturising is important keeping your body hydrated is equally important. Alcohol dehydrates your body and depletes essential vitamins and magnesium from the body. Also, eliminating fats and oils completely out of your diet can also make skin look dull and lifeless.

Disrupted sleep
 

Disrupted sleep

Cellular rejuvenation happens best at night when your mind and body are at peace. Stress and insufficient sleep can disrupt this process and cause your skin to age faster.

Rough skin texture

Your skin issues are also an indicator of underlying problems inside the body. For example, if you suddenly notice dry and flaky skin you should get your thyroid checked. It is always advised to visit your physician often and get a complete body check up every six months.
