Wrinkles are the unwanted lines, which appear automatically on the face as we grow up. These lines make us no more look younger, and so we, nowadays, are becoming quite cautious about wrinkles. Whenever we think about improved face value we always consider a person’s face that is wrinkle free, and looks younger than its actual age.
Not only the skin of our face, wrinkles are often found in other parts of our body too. As face value carries more importance than the beauty of other parts of our body, so you will find that people are generally worried about reducing the wrinkles on their faces. For aged people, wrinkles on the face are quite natural, but for younger or middle aged people, wrinkles are the outcome of environmental factors and poor skin condition.
How wrinkles appear on the skin?
The root of having wrinkles is lack of moisture in the middle layer of our skin, which is known as ‘dermis’. The top layer of our skin is visible and carries the reflection of the middle layer of the skin. A protein in the middle layer of our skin holds moisture and gives elastic effect in our skin.
As we grow older this protein starts reducing and lowers the capacity of holding sufficient moisture in the middle layer. Due to the lack of moisture and protein in the middle layer, the elasticity of our skin starts disappearing and wrinkles appear.
There are several other factors behind wrinkles:
• Smoking of cigarette
• Staying under the direct sun
• Lacking of moisture
• Damaging the middle layer
• Hormonal imbalance
There are many ways to combat with wrinkles and you can easily control these wrinkles to hold your face value.
