Wrinkles, facial lines or laugh lines are usually associated with getting older. As our skin ages it becomes thinner, more fragile, there would be diminishing functioning of the sweat and oil glands and the skin also loses its elasticity and starts to show wrinkles and fine lines. The fat in the subcutaneous layer that gives the skin a plump appearance also begins to disappear; the epidermis starts to sag and wrinkles form.
Generally wrinkles are found around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. You can also spot “11s”- it is the pair of vertical lines between the brows. The parts of our body which are more exposed to the external environment, such as our face, neck and hands, tend to be more prone to ageing and wrinkling compared to other parts of our body.
The causes for wrinkles are: Puffing, smoking, facial mimicry, genetic factors, alcohol, over sun exposure, sleep positions, loss of collagen and elasticity, pollution, dirt, consumption of excessive sugar, caffeine, soda, fatty food, not drinking enough water, lifestyle choices, hormonal changes, tanning, excessive rubbing of eyes, use of old makeup products, increase in thyroid levels, increase in stress levels, unhealthy diet, etc
