And considering that a recent UCLA study found that breast tissue ages two to three years faster than the rest of your body, you might want to quit any habit linked to a flaccid pair—like these. But yo-yo dieting 30 or so lbs over and over? Each time you gain and lose weight, breast tissue becomes more slack, kind of like old tights, says Michael Edwards, M. Skipping Sunscreen Exposing your face to UV rays without a protective coating of sunscreen can lead to premature wrinkles, and it has the same effect on breast sag by stretching out collagen and damaging skin, says Edwards. High-Impact Workouts The research is scant right now, but some experts say that the back-and-forth repetitive motions that happen when you run or do a similar workout can lead to a breakdown of breast collagen.
