Aging—that is one term that we would never want to hear or happen to us. But no matter how much we fear or hate the phenomenon of aging, we are all aware that it is bound to happen, whether we like it or not. And so we try very hard to delay the arrival of this dreaded phenomenon.
For many of us, we are lucky enough to be successful in that endeavor. In fact, there are some people who do not experience any signs of aging not until they have hit their menopausal stage. Unfortunately, not all of us are not that lucky. There are actually some people who are very unfortunate that they even experience signs of aging at such an early age—during their 20’s and 30’s!
Are you wondering if you are one of those people? Well, you might be. To make sure, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the premature signs of aging and that is what we are going to explain to you today in this article.
1. Red Eyes
We sometimes think of red eyes as just a seasonal allergy or a product of being in front of the computer for a long time. But if you are suffering from chronic red eyes, it may mean more than you realize. This may indicate chronic inflammation which is associated with an age-related disease like osteoarthritis.
One great way to remedy this problem is to enjoy an alkaline rich diet which can help reduce joint pain, aging, and stiffness. Some of the foods that are rich in alkaline that you can include in your diet are non-starchy vegetables, fruits, and sprouts.
2. Droopy Eyelids
Are you starting to look like Droopy while you are still in your 20’s? Well, that is a cause for concern as it is one of the early signs of aging. Your eyelids are not supposed to drop until you are 50 or if you are lucky, 60. Aside from the fact that droopy eyelids may increase your risk of being in an accident, it may also mean other health problems like fluid retention, allergies, fatigue and thyroid problems. This is usually brought about by oxidative stress which is a result of eating processed foods.
That’s why the best way to remedy this is to ditch the processed foods and opt for something fresh and healthy instead.
3. Sagging Skin
Many people think that having fine lines and wrinkles are normal even if they are still young but the truth is, this is one of the early signs of aging. This sign may also indicate that you may have overloaded liver, congested digestive system or your body is not getting the amount of oxygen that it needs.
If you wish to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, we recommend undergoing detoxification to remove the harmful substances that are causing those lines.
4. Changes In Skin Texture And Tone
Is your skin suddenly all dry and flaky? If you are still young, then it may indicate that thyroid problems that you should address ASAP.
One good way to deal with this issue is to give your thyroid a break. This means that you should start lying low on your caffeine and soy consumption. This may be a bit difficult at first, especially if you completely rely on these substances for energy but you can try bee pollen as it is one of the healthiest coffee alternatives.
5. Graying Skin
Has your skin become dull and gray? Well, it may be due to problems in your kidney. Keep in mind that it is your kidney that is responsible for filtering wastes from our body and once it does not perform its job correctly, chances are waste will accumulate in the body and may result in anemia which is the cause of your graying skin.
To remedy this, it is recommended that you consult a doctor to determine what is the best treatment for your condition.
Yes, it can be disheartening to experience all of these signs at such an early age. But this can be a good thing, especially since what is happening to our skin is important as what happens on the outside may give us clues about what is going on inside our body. So always be vigilant and watchful about what is happening to your skin. Sometimes, it is not just about vanity. Sometimes, it is one of the best ways on how you can better understand your health and your body.
