4 Things That Can Cause Premature Aging


Old age has its own grace when it happens naturally, however, that is not always the situation in the world that we live in today. We often see stunningly gorgeous people losing their glamor way ahead of time and can’t figure out why it happened. If you can relate to this phenomenon, have you figured out the reasons yet? Well, we are about to point out some of the most probable and common reasons why it is so that at times, even celebrities seem to lose their charm suddenly and at an age when it’s not supposed to happen.

Disease (Physical)

One of the most common and often undiagnosed cause for someone showing signs of aging is a disease of any kind that is taking a significant toll on their health.

Sometimes, it could even be the treatment itself that makes it worse; chemotherapy being a good example of that. It’s not just cancer though, because any health ordeal that’s taking a toll on someone’s mind and body will affect his/her appearance in a negative way.

Depression and Anxiety

The combination of depression and anxiety can lead to a host of other psychological and physical conditions that range from anorexia and psychosis, to obesity, dark circles and gauntness to name just a few.

Substance Abuse and Addictions

Addictions come in many forms, but the most destructive effects on the body and skin are left by drug and alcohol abuse. Substance abuse even destroyed celebrities such as Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan in more ways than one. Everything from their careers, to their God-gifted looks were not spared from the devastating effects of drug and alcohol abuse.

Unhealthy Lifestyle Choices

One can argue that substance abuse itself is a lifestyle choice, but after the initial introduction to the concerned substance, it doesn’t exactly remain a “choice” anymore.

The kind of lifestyle choices we are talking about here are the ones that most of us consciously make, such as the decision to skip going to the gym and healthy food in favor of relaxation and tasty junk.
Not that junk food can’t be addictive, but it’s still a lifestyle choice and one that leads to a whole range of physical and mental problems which will inevitably take a toll on your body.

Especially combined with a lack of exercise, junk food can even be deadly for us if consumed continuously and on a long term basis. It can even lead to depression and anxiety, which in turn, can lead to everything we just discussed above.

How Can You Reverse the Signs of Aging?

If it’s a physical condition, it will need to be treated, and the underlying causes will have to be managed or removed in order for the person to get back to his/her former gorgeous self. However, things get tricky when the reason is addiction and depression at the same time. It is more than likely that you will need to seek professional treatment. Fortunately, there are clinics like Sabino Recovery, which is a Dual diagnosis rehab center, that utilize specially formulated plans in their inpatient programs to diagnose and treat both substance addictions, as well as mental health issues of a patient simultaneously.

The controlled nature of Sabino’s inpatient program allows them to eliminate all harmful and negative impacts and influences from the patient’s life, so that the treatment can be the most effective in the shortest amount of time.

In most cases, if depression, anxiety, bad lifestyle etc. are responsible for your premature aging, you can expect your glorious image to come back to you once you get a hold on them. It may take some time for the body and mind to heal back to its original self, but as long as the right efforts are there, it will happen.
