Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. The first sign of a wrinkle is usually a fine line that appears on the skin's surface. As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, two proteins that help to keep the skin firm and elastic. The loss of these proteins causes the skin to become thinner and less able to repair itself, leading to the formation of wrinkles.
Sun damage, ultraviolet rays can break down collagen and elastin fibers, responsible for keeping skin firm and elastic.
Repetitive muscle movements, such as frowning or squinting. When we make the same facial expressions repeatedly, it causes the skin to crease and form lines. This is why wrinkles tend to form in areas where we use our muscles the most, such as around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.
Dehydrated skin, often caused by external elements like the weather and seasonal changes. It can also be largely associated with your diet and lifestyle choices. Not drinking enough water, consuming high levels of salt or drinking too much alcohol can drain your skin's water content and result in a less radiant appearance, causing lines and wrinkles.
Smoking can also contribute to wrinkle formation by breaking down collagen fibers and reducing blood flow to the skin.
