Not getting enough restful sleep, especially at night, or sleeping less than 7 hours a day, can make your skin look dull, accelerating the premature aging process.

Sleeping on the Tummy
When you sleep on your stomach, your face is pressed against the pillow, which can increase the appearance of fine lines on your face.

Excessive sugar intake can increase the amount of free radicals in the body which may lead to skin damage and increase the aging process.
Excessive exposure to electronic devices
Sitting in front of a laptop or using phones and tablets all day can damage your sensitive skin and lead to premature aging.
Stress plays a major role in increasing the aging process, as it can reduce skin elasticity and lead to pigmentation.
