Wrinkles Q & A
What causes wrinkles?
Wrinkles are inevitable as you age. They form for a variety of reasons. One reason is that you start losing that cushioning layer of fat that separates your facial muscles from your skin. As a result, the wrinkling of the skin become more dramatic because the facial muscles are working closer to the surface of the skin.
Furthermore, because you begin losing skin-firming collagen and elastin with age, those lines start to stick around and may even become permanently etched in your skin.
Things like sun exposure and tobacco use speed up the loss of collagen and elastin. This is why people who live in sunny places like Southern California tend to look older than people who live in cloudy places. The everyday sun exposure is slowly chewing apart the collagen in the skin. Nonetheless, no matter what’s causing your wrinkles, you don’t have to learn to live with them.
