No matter how healthy our diets are or how frequently we exercise, wrinkles are something that we are all bound to develop at some point in our lives. However, wrinkles aren’t just a sign of aging – they are primarily a sign of sun damage which can be aggravated by a poor diet and dry skin.

Cause of face wrinkles: Eye wrinkles include crow's feet in the corner of the eyes and wrinkles under the eyes. Eye wrinkles are caused by the same aging factors that reduce collagen and elastin production elsewhere in the skin, including Genetic Aging, Environmental Aging and Hormonal Aging.

What do facial wrinkles look like?

During our younger years, our dermis is full of fibers called elastin and collagen that together work to make the skin appear youthful and elastic. As we age, the levels of both elastin and collagen in the dermis decrease, which in turn makes our skin thinner and less capable of delivering moisture and nutrients to the epidermis. The sun damage to the elastic fibres is easily seen with a microscopic exam of the skin.

Treating Facial Wrinkles:

Self-care facial wrinkle treatments: Sunscreens which block UVA applied every day is the most important and valuable topical you can apply for the prevention of wrinkles. Hydrating, moisturizing and feeding your skin antioxidants, retinoids and growth factors is vital. Using anti-aging skin care is one of the easiest things you should be doing to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, but it requires disciplined long term use to be effective-just like going to the gym.
