Although aging is not completely understood, it can easily be divided into two categories - intrinsic and extrinsic.
Intrinsic ageing is caused by genetic factors. Extrinsic ageing can be attributed lifestyle choices such as alcohol consumption, smoking and diet.

Poor sleep is my No. 1 mistake that will make you age faster. You will age faster if you make the following mistake:
Lack of sleep accelerates aging
Sleep is often compromised in our hectic lives. Evidence is mounting that
The key to a long and healthy life is good nutrition.
The body heals by itself when we sleep. Sleeping 7 to 8 hours per night improves cellular health and tissue, immune function, energy levels, metabolism, and cognitive function.
Sleep deprivation can also lead to a number of health problems, including
High blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, stroke and depression
Sleep deprivation can cause:
Skin wrinkles and premature aging
Collagen and elastin are two proteins that keep our skin plump and firm as we age.
Research has been done on the topic.
Insufficient sleep can affect collagen and elastin strength, which could lead to wrinkles, skin laxity or sagging.
Lack of sleep is a short-term problem.
This can lead to a decrease in motor skills and a slowdown of information processing. It also reduces our attention spans, emotional capacity and our judgement.
Sleep problems can cause long-term health issues.
Alzheimer's disease, cognitive decline and impaired memory are all associated with a higher risk.
Immune system weakened
The immune system is the first line of defense for our body.
During sleep, the immune system produces cells to help fight pathogens. The cells are moved to the parts of the body that need them at the end of a sleeping cycle.
It has been shown that if our sleep is disrupted, our bodies may be less able to combat these invaders. In addition, the recovery time from an illness could be longer.
