What are wrinkles?
What cause wrinkles? Why do we have it on our skin?
Wrinkles are a natural part of aging. They are lines and creases in your skin. In fact, a lot of them can become deeper. Wrinkles are most prominent on sun exposed skin. Such a skin as the face, neck, hands and forearms. Over there are the most noticeable too. But that is also natural process with aging. As we getting older, our skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic.
As a matter of fact, genetics mainly determine skin structure. A major cause of wrinkles especially in light skin people is sun exposure. With repeated sun exposure, wrinkles can become very pronounced and deep, especially on the back of the neck. With this in mind you should be careful with exposing to sun. Smoking surely is causing wrinkling.
A doctor can recommend medical wrinkle treatment.
Factor that Causes wrinkles
Obviously a lot of different factors are causing wrinkles. Some of them you can control. But some of them can’t.
1.Exposing to ultra violet light or let’s say to sun. UV radiation is the primary cause of skin wrinkling. It speeds aging process. UV lights also damage collagen and elastin fiber. In this way, skin loses strength and flexibility. Skin then begins to sag and wrinkle prematurely.
Yes, always wear sunglasses to protect skin around eyes.
2.Repeated facial expressions. When you move your face, such as squinting or smiling, it will lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. And as skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place. These grooves then become permanent features on your face.
Think about this when you are mad…
3.Smoking can accelerate the normal aging process of your skin, contributing to wrinkles. This may be due to smoking’s effect on collagen.
Skin looks much better without smoking…
4.And of course Age As you get older, your skin naturally becomes less elastic and more fragile. Decreased production of natural oils dries your skin. The less natural oil on your skin the more wrinkling. Fat in the deeper layers of your skin diminishes. This causes loose, saggy skin and more-pronounced lines and crevices.
Prevention is the key, to prevent and to slow process of natural wrinkling.
There is a lot of different ways and products to prevent fast wrinkling, use some on time…
Less known factors:
5.Sugar Consumption. It is a recently documented fact that sugar triggers the production of advanced glycation end product (AGE) in your bloodstream. AGE damages certain proteins in your body, including two that your skin needs to remain plump and firm. The sugar you eat is killing the collagen and elastin in your skin, promoting wrinkles and an aged appearance.
Eat a healthy diet. It’s good to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. What cause wrinkles? Sugar. Avoid sugar.
6.Water is an essential element in your body. When your water consumption is consistently low, cell damage occurs in your skin. That will damage your body inside. Dehydration has the same effect on your skin.
Drink enough water daily.
There are two groups of wrinkles
Now after we know what cause wrinkles , let’s find out a bit more.
To understand the various treatments of wrinkles, one must understand that there are different kinds of wrinkles.
So in general, we have :
When we make facial movements a lot, we develop dynamic wrinkles. If you pucker your lips around a straw frequently, for example, you might get lip lines. Other words they are those wrinkles and lines that appear when your face is is making the same move too many times.
Dynamic wrinkles can become static wrinkles over time. Fine smile lines morph into more prominent nasolabial folds when our cheeks lose plumpness and do a slight plummet in middle age, for example.
When we were younger and our skin had abundant collagen, the only lines and wrinkles we had were dynamic.
Our face was otherwise wrinkle-free when we weren’t animated. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by facial expressions and repetitive facial movements. Each time we use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin, which is why we see lines form with each facial expression.
As skin ages and loses its elasticity, the skin stops springing back to its line-free state, with constant motion these grooves become permanently etched on the face as fine lines and wrinkles.
These we get from a loss of elasticity and the takeover of gravity. Wrinkles that come with jowl are static.
Static wrinkles are those facial lines that you always see even when your face is at rest, thus constantly visible.
Sleeping positions are one of the main causes of static wrinkles.
Resting your face on the pillow in the same way every night for years will lead to skin with wrinkles. These sleep lines wrinkles eventually become etched on our skin and no longer disappear when the head is not resting on the pillow.
Women, who tend to sleep on their sides, are most likely to see these lines appear on their chin and cheeks. Men tend to notice these lines on the forehead since they usually sleep with the face pressed face down on the pillow. People who sleep on their backs do not develop these wrinkles since their skin does not lie crumpled against the pillow.
