Aging is an inevitable aspect of our lives. But did you know that there are two different types of aging?
- Intrinsic aging
This is what we commonly know as aging or growing old. The rate that we age or begin to look old is intrinsically dependent on our genetics. That is why some people can look like they are in their thirties when they are actually in their fifties.
- Extrinsic aging
Extrinsic aging is caused by external factors. These can be factors like environment, diet and exposure to UV rays from sunlight.
