What Causes Premature Skin Aging & What You Can Do About It

Premature skin aging is the visible signs of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and sagging skin even before old age, which often happens in our late 20’s or early 30’s.

There are several factors that contribute to premature aging skin, which includes our overall lifestyle and day-to-day habits.

Here’s a look at the possible causes of premature skin aging:


UV rays from sun exposure is the no. 1 culprit for premature skin aging which is known to breakdown the collagen and elastin in skin.

Besides speeding up the aging of skin, frequent sun exposure also causes sun spots and hyperpigmentation to appear. In worse cases, it may also cause skin cancer.

So, if you’re not applying sunscreen daily, then you could be in trouble. Though you might not see any damaging effects now, you will eventually in the long term.

Which is why it’s important to apply sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays.

However, applying sunscreen may not be enough protection.



A poor diet that is high in refined carbs, sugar and processed food contributes to the acceleration of the aging process.

Some of the foods that actually make your skin worse according to dermatologists include fatty meat, fast food, artificial sweeteners, dairy products, alcohol and why protein, just to name a few.

These foods are known to cause irritation, pimples and acne, increase sebum production in skin, redness and other issues.



Smoking and excessive drinking of alcohol deprives the body and skin of necessary nutrients to look and feel healthy.

When you smoke, nicotine causes the blood vessels to become narrow. This will then reduce the flow of oxygen and essential nutrients in your body including your skin cells.

The chemicals and toxic byproduct from cigarette and alcohol also damages the structure of your skin’s elasticity and health.



Lack of sleep hinders the body from regenerating cells, which leads to increase aging and decreased skin barrier function.

This also increases cortisol levels in the body which is a hormone that triggers inflammation that in turn breaks down the proteins in your skin that actually helps it to keep it glowing and smooth.

Which is also why those who do not get enough sleep have dull and tired looking skin.



Chronic stress can also trigger inflammatory responses in the body which speeds up the aging process.

Stress also triggers the stress hormone cortisol in your body which causes the oil production in your skin glands to increase.

When this happens, it can lead to your pores being clogged and cause acne breakouts.

Not only that, but stress can also reduce the proteins in your skin that is responsible for elasticity, which in turn contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
