I live at about 7,000 feet in a very dry climate. I've lived here for about 5 years and feel like I've aged faster than I had at lower altitudes. Does anyone thing that living in such a dry climate could age you faster?
I wear sunscreen almost every day and use tons of moisturizer.

Hey Gainup ! I also live in the high desert altitude (Albuquerque) besides water intake i'd also make sure i have plenty of essential oils to keep the skin lubricated internally.(Olive Oil, Flax/Fish Oils) later!!
Wear sunglasses at all times when you're outside I grew up and lived until I was 40 in an area of New Mexico that is 3500. I was diagnoised with my first cataract at the ripe age of 41 and the second one at 44. The only thing that the doc could figure out why I had cataract at such an early age was because I was always outside and most of the time with no sunglasses.
When I moved to an area at sea level my body went crazy. Doctor told me it would take a year for my body to adjust to such a change in altitude. Changes were a period that never stopped, hair falling out and skin rashes. Has anyone else ever heard that?
