What Maybe Causing You Wrinkles


There are numerous factors or the combinations of all. 

While you have control over some, 

Some of them are under the strict control the of almighty.

We can’t interfere with them!


Check out these most significant factors causing you wrinkles and making your skin look aged.

Age Factor


While getting older may be a sure way of your swelling bank account and magnified intellect, it may cause you an abundance of wrinkles too!

As you age the skin loses its elasticity and may become fragile. 

Depleting sources of natural oils cause the skin to appear wrinkled…

Less amount of under skin fat means saggy skin and more pronounced lines


Ultraviolet Light Exposure


UV rays break down your skin’s connective tissues- collagen and elastin fibers which are found in the deeper layer of the skin called the dermis.

In the absence of the supportive tissues, your skin may lose strength flexibility, and suppleness and starts to sag and wrinkle prematurely.


Stress and Worries


Remember the time when you spent extra money while purchasing your favorite dress. 

Look into the mirror and trace some lines of stress.

Sometimes a depleting bank account may cause you more wrinkles than the depleting collagen.

Whatever the reason for stress, it is not good for your skin and overall health and wellness.

Research shows that the yoga can excellently manage your stress.


Habit Of Smoking

While you may be thinking of smoking as a stress buster, it may accelerate the aging process of your skin. 

Smoking affects collagen.

There are more than 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, and many of them trigger the destruction of collagen and elastin. 

Since these fibers give your skin its strength and elasticity. 

Smoking or even being around the smoke “degrades the building blocks of the skin”, say experts. 

Tobacco smoke causes oxidative stress so that insufficient oxygen is supplied to the skin resulting in tissue damage.


Your Expressions And Emotions


All kinds of facial expressions, from smiling to frowning may cause you wrinkles and fine lines.

Remember,  your expressions are causing a little groove beneath your skin surface.

With time when skin loses all the flexibility it is unable to heal back that groove.

Creating a permanent groove!


Few Tips To Prevent Wrinkles


Protect your skin from sun and pollution


Keep yourself as much covered as possible when you step out.

Protective clothing, hooded hats goggles, masks can help you more than anything in preventing your skin from getting wrinkles.

Sun protection products are meant to protect against cancer and other health conditions.

Choose your skincare product with an SPF of more than 15.


According to the FDA, the use of a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above, combined with other measures, such as wearing sunglasses and avoiding the midday sun, can help prevent skin aging, tanning, wrinkles, and cancer.

Sunscreens help protect the skin from potentially harmful UVB and UVA rays. 

UVB causes the skin to turn red, whereas UVA does not.

However, UVA can lead to photoaging, causing wrinkles. 

Both UVA and UVB increase the risk of skin cancer.

Also, If a product with a specific SPF effectively blocks UVB rays, the same does not guarantee UVA protection.

For this reason, it is important to look for a suitable SPF, and also a broad-spectrum or full-spectrum lotion.

Moisturize Well

A good quality moisturizer traps the moisture of your skin and helps to prevent the lines and creases.


Quit Smoking


First thing, It is never too late! 

Any damage caused by the years of habitual smoking can be healed by quitting.

 You can notice the difference within weeks. You’ll look younger and healthier with fewer wrinkles. 

Because smoking lowers the body’s ability to generate new skin.

People who smoke get wrinkles and show other signs of aging sooner. 

People who quit smoking have a better quality of life.


Drink Plenty Of Water

Consuming more water has the same effect internally what a moisturizer does externally.

Even More To Your Overall Health!

Drinking plenty of water is associated with a good digestive system which in turn improves your overall health and Wellness.

Eat A Healthy Diet


A diet rich in vitamins and minerals especially vitamin c helps to heal your skin and keeps it healthy.

Add plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to make your diet perfect and balanced.

The role of proper nutrition cannot be denied in the maintenance of good skin.
