The obsession to look young and to avoid ageing leads to an elaborate search for best creams, lotions, etc to look young. However, there are certain things that actually impact your look and make you appear aged even before your rightful age. Basically, from what you eat to how you eat, your skin reacts to it. Here are a few eating habits that can lead to signs of early ageing on your face. 

1. Excessive sugar intake
Excessive sugar intake leads to the onset of glycation. That means excess sugar molecules combine with proteins which leads to glycation end products. These products harm the collagen in the skin and lead to ageing. 

2. Having fast food or junk food all the time
The junk food is full of trans fat, this trans fat leads to inflammation. The constant inflammation affects your skin in the worst possible manner. It leads to early signs of ageing.

3. Excessive carbohydrate intake
Carbohydrate intake is important to maintain the health of the body, but too much of it is actually harmful. It has the same impact as that of excessive sugar. It also leads to the onset of glycation which leads to ageing.  

4. Drinking too much coffee
Coffee, in a limited amount, is good for you but when you have it too much every day then it dehydrates the skin. This leads to premature ageing of the skin. 

5. Excessive salt intake
Salt intake beyond a normal amount leads to water retention in the body and causes puffiness.

So, make sure you watch out for these habits to prevent ageing early.
