In the hustle and bustle of today’s modern era, is it really any surprise that the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles are becoming a concern as early as late twenties to early thirties?
We think not!
Here are just 3 of the top factors that contribute to premature aging and how to fix them.
Stress is a huge contributing factor to early aging. Being stressed can cause you to tense your facial muscles and frown constantly resulting in frown lines that can make you appear a lot older than you are.
Internally, stress raises your stress hormone, cortisol, which can actually break down collagen, a structural protein that helps to keep the skin firm and plump.
Okay so there’s no quick fix to beating your stress, (we wish) but there are daily habits you can incorporate into your life that will soon become a lifestyle and drastically improve your stress levels.
Meditation is just one way to take a few minutes for yourself and engage in deep breathing, which has an instant calming effect on the nervous system.

Poor eating habits
When you’re busy running around every day, it’s easier to buy a ready meal than prepare a fresh meal yourself, but you may be more motivated to make an effort when you read this.
Processed, fatty and fast foods cause inflammation in the body, which in turn has a detrimental effect on the skin. Not only will you have to worry about inflamed acne breakouts, but premature wrinkles too!
Try and prepare your meals ahead of time to prevent you from eating out. Whole, antioxidant rich foods such as leafy greens, seeds, nuts, fish and a rainbow of veggies will flood your body with nutrients to hydrate your skin cells and fight aging from the inside out!
Here’s some great tips to help you to stick to your new healthy eating plan.
Using incorrect skincare products
This is a huge one, but many women are simply unaware. Conventional chemically laden products will provide your skin with no real benefits in the long term and may actually contribute to the signs of aging.
Not all hope is lost! By switching to an all-natural skincare line such as the products we offer here at Cosmetics Guru, you’ll be feeding your skin with real vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants to provide long-term visible benefits rather than just a temporary “quick fix”.
Simply by changing these three poor habits you are giving your skin the best chance to age slowly and gracefully!
