Are Your Work Habits Making You Look Older?

Getting older may be a fact of life, but that doesn’t mean we have to expedite the process. Unfortunately, some of our habits are doing just that—especially at work. Oprah recently highlighted a few of the worst work habits that can lead to premature aging, plus a few ways you can avoid adding years to your youthful appearance.

We think her tips are great and easy to adapt whether you’re in an office all day, running a home-based business, or wrangling your kids and managing the house.

Diversify your drinks

Who else is guilty of living solely on coffee throughout the workday? We hate to break it to you, but you may want to swap a bit of that caffeine for more water. As a natural diuretic, too much coffee can dehydrate you—which isn’t only bad for your overall health but can also wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it parched, dull, and flaky.

Ways to fight back

Avoid straining your eyes

Most people who work at a computer know that it’s important to get up and move every so often, but this isn’t just for your circulation—it’s for your eyes too! Squinting at your screen or furrowing your brow in concentration can lead to deep facial creases over time.

Ways to fight back

These are all great suggestions when it comes to helping eye strain, but if you’re already seeing lines on your face from squinting or deep concentration, consider trying BOTOX. It relaxes the muscles responsible for those creases and gives a smoother look within a few days. There’s often a bonus benefit too: taming frown lines will help you to avoid looking angry when you really aren’t, which can help you have more positive interactions with coworkers.

Keep stress in check

From work deadlines to personal life drama, life can be hectic. Stress affects most Americans, and it shows. Gray hair, wrinkles from frowning, and even weight gain can all be side effects of too much work and not enough play—in addition to a multitude of other health issues. Being overwhelmed is one of the major things that makes you look older, but there are things you can start doing now to manage it.
