The way we look at a certain age strongly depends on genetics. But this is not the only factor — we can significantly affect the aging process ourselves.
Axar.az collected some seemingly innocuous habits that steal our youth.
1. A ponytail is your favorite hairstyle
When you pull your hair tight at the roots, it can lead to a receding hairline and baldness in the future. To save your hair, it’s better to replace ponytails with looser styles.
2. You drink too much milk
Of course, no one says you should completely refuse milk. However, it’s still useful to be aware of the unpleasant consequences of excessive milk consumption. Milk contains androgens that provoke a more active oil gland function. As a result, it produces more sebum, which clogs pores and makes the skin look greasy and tired.
3. You apply sunscreen only to your face
Many women have already become used to applying sunscreen all year round, but they forget about their hands. Meanwhile, hands are the most sensitive to aging and fat loss, which makes the veins more visible. In addition, UV rays cover hand skin with age spots and wrinkles. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your hands, especially if you’re driving. And remember to use it in summer, especially on the neck and chest area.
4. You like sitting with your legs crossed
Varicose veins on the legs are a direct result of blood vessel compression and circulatory disorders. By the way, the "crossed legs" pose is fraught with blood stagnation in the pelvic area, which is particularly harmful to women (and extremely harmful for pregnant women). It won’t be easy to control yourself, but you can buy a comfortable computer chair and make a habit of putting your feet on a stand when sitting or on the arm of a couch when lying at home.
5. You brush your hair when it’s wet
This makes the hair ends split, and it’s a common mistake in hair care. To avoid extra hair damage, first dry your hair a little with a towel (don’t rub), then start to blow-dry, and only after that should you brush and start styling.
