Father Time comes for everybody but some people suffer from premature aging. In the worst case, this may be because of their genetics. But usually, our lifestyle choices impact how our bodies change as we grow older. Today we’ll look at signs that your body is too old for your actual age.
The decisions that people make in their thirties and forties can impact them for the rest of their lives. Spending too much time in the sun or failing to exercise will take their toll eventually. Luckily, it’s possible to reduce these side effects and prevent premature aging if we keep a healthy mindset.
One of the most common signs of premature aging is hair loss. Many men suffer from this condition as follicle-creating cells deteriorate over time. Unfortunately, this is very difficult to prevent and some people are more predisposed to lose their hair. Scientists remain uncertain about the reasons why baldness occurs.
The main theory is that age-related DNA damage affects the hair follicles and prevents them from reproducing. There are also foams and lotions to treat early hair loss while entire transplants are also available now. Some men think that they look too old without hair but others make it work well (via The Guardian).
