There are many things that age our faces. There are some things we can't change, but there are others we can.

Our bodies naturally age, which is something we can't change. It's very important. Everybody gets lines on their face over time. As we age, it's normal for our faces to lose some of their shape. We can tell that our skin is getting smoother and younger. When these changes happen, they are mostly controlled by our genes. In medicine, this kind of age is called "intrinsic ageing."

Another kind of age that happens to our skin can be changed. The things around us and the way we live can make our skin age faster than it should. In medicine, this kind of age is called "extrinsic aging." Through some preventative steps, we can lessen the damage that this kind of ageing does to our faces.

11 ways to stop your skin from changing too quickly

The sun is a big reason why our skin ages faster than it should. Some other things we do can also make our skin age faster than it would on its own. Dermatologists give their patients the following advice to help them keep their skin from getting old too quickly:.

01: Every day, keep your face out of the sun. Sun protection is important, whether you're going to the beach or running chores. Protect your skin from the sun by finding shade, wearing light, long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats with wide brims, and shades that block UV rays, and applying broad-spectrum sunscreen that is waterproof and has an SPF of 30 or higher. SPF should be put on all skin that isn't hidden by clothes every day. For better defence, look for clothes that have a sticker that says "UPF" for ultraviolet protection factor.

02: Don't get a tan; use self-tanner instead. Getting a tan makes your face age faster than it should. And this is true whether you get your tan in the sun, on a tanning bed, or some other way inside. All of them give off UV rays that are bad for you and make your skin age faster.

03: Quit smoking. When you smoke, your face ages a lot faster. It makes your skin look dull and sallow and gives you lines.

04: Don't make the same facial gestures over and over. When you make a face expression, the muscles below get tight. If you tighten the same muscles over and over for years, the lines will stay there. Sunglasses can help get rid of lines that come from staring.

5. Make sure you eat a healthy, varied diet. A few studies have shown that having a lot of fresh fruits and veggies may help protect against damage that causes skin to age faster than it should. A diet high in sugar and other processed starches may also speed up the ageing process, according to research papers.

06: Don't drink as much. Rum is rough on the skin. It makes the skin dry and, over time, hurts the face. Our age can show through this.

07: Work out most days a week. A few studies have shown that mild exercise can make the immune system stronger and improve blood flow. Furthermore, this might make the face look younger.

08: Use mild soap to clean your face. Scrubbing your face can make it feel rough. Irritating your face makes it age faster. You can get rid of dirt, makeup, and other things that are bad for your skin by washing gently.

09: Wash your face twice a day and after you've sweated a lot. Itchy skin is caused by sweating, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, so wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.

10. Use a lotion on your face every day. Moisturiser keeps water in our skin, which makes it look younger.

11. Stop using skin care items that burn or sting your skin. There is something wrong with your skin if it burns or stings. Making your face red and itchy can make it look older.

Note: Some anti-aging products prescribed by a dermatologist may burn or sting. When using a prescription anti-aging product, this can be OK. Just be sure to let your dermatologist know.

Never too late to benefit

Even people who already have signs of premature skin aging can benefit from making lifestyle changes. By protecting your skin from the sun, you give it a chance to repair some of the damage. Smokers who stop often notice that their skin looks healthier.

If signs of aging skin bother you, you may want to see a dermatologist. New treatments and less-invasive procedures for smoothing wrinkles, tightening skin, and improving one’s complexion are giving many people younger-looking skin.
