Causes of skin wrinkles and necessary precautions to take

A fold, ridge or crease in the skin is known as wrinkle. Thought they typically appear as a result of aging process, in modern times there are various reasons like excess loss of body mass, prolonged immersion in water, poor hydration etc that cause wrinkles to appear on our face. As every problem has got a solution, wrinkles too can be reduced by the use of moisturizing creams. But all moisturizing creams may not provide the anti-ageing care required for your skin.

What causes skin wrinkles?

As we approach old age, the skin becomes less elastic and fragile. The production of natural oils decreases, making the skin dry and wrinkled. With diminishing fat in the deeper layers of the skin, the skin becomes saggy and also develops fine lines and crevices on the skin. Premature ageing of the skin can be due to the following reasons:

1.      Exposure to UVA rays

Ultraviolet rays, whether it is UVA or UVB, are harmful for the skin. But excessive exposure to UVA rays result in premature wrinkling of the skin. Collagen and elastin fibres are the connective tissues that lie in the deeper layer of the skin. Exposure to UV rays can break down this connective tissue, resulting in a loosened, flexible skin which appears to be saggy and wrinkled. There are many sunscreen lotions available in the market to protect you from the UV rays

2.      Smoking

Proper blood supply is imperative for a healthy skin. By smoking, changes occur in the blood supply to your skin, causing the skin to wrinkle prematurely. The signs of aging starts appearing on your age way too early making you look older than your actual age.

3.      Facial expressions

If you are a person with animated actions and expressions, well, it is very likely that your peers just love being around you. If you are a person who believes in the positivity that a smile can spread and has made smiling a habit, you are indeed an asset to your dear ones. On the contrary, all the smiles you smile and all the squints you make may lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles as years pass by. It never means that you should stop being what you are. But do keep a check on your face for the sign of wrinkles.

4.      Improper diet

It is important that the diet has to be rich with nutritious food, as poor nutrition may lead to premature ageing.

Why are most of the anti-ageing products targeted towards women? Well, the answer is, women are more prone to wrinkles that men. This is because of the fewer sweat glands that women have when compared to men. The sweat glands are said to secrete the oily matter called sebum that lubricate the skin and prevents it from drying. There are different remedies for dry skin, and for skin wrinkles.

So, ladies, grab those moisturizing creams that will give you the anti-ageing care required for your skin.
