It’s no secret that women live longer than men. Although this may seem like good news for women, there is one thing they don’t know: that women age faster than men! Here’s who makes women age faster from pregnancy to menopause are among reasons…

– Women are more affected by stress than men

Women are more prone to experiencing mental problems, especially in work-related situations. In addition, the hormonal difference experienced by women explains everything.

Hormone fluctuations are associated with depression. Moreover, seasonal affective disorder affects women more than men. Experiencing constant stress, inevitably leads to premature aging.

– Giving birth accelerates aging

A study has proved that pregnancy makes women look 12 years older. The thing is that the telomeres of women who have given birth (a structure that affects aging) are shorter than those who have never had children.

The shorter your telomeres, the older you look. Also, stress during pregnancy is not uncommon, which speeds up the aging process.

– Male skin is thicker

According to dermatologists, men’s skin is 30 percent thicker than women’s skin. The condition of the skin of the face can vary from person to person, but the average remains the same. But although men have fewer wrinkles on their faces, they are deeper than women.

– Testosterone levels are different

High testosterone levels slow down aging. Although estrogen also serves as an anti-aging hormone, its production decreases faster than testosterone. That is why the first wrinkles appear in women.

– Menopause destroys elasticity

Since hormones go into decline during menopause, the aging process accelerates. When women go through menopause, their bodies stop producing as much collagen as they used to. This, in turn, leads to the fact that the skin loses its elasticity.
