What are Wrinkles? Can You Avoid Them

Most of us can spot the formation of wrinkles on our faces almost before there are any signs to spot, but what do you actually know about them?

Wrinkles are basically skin folds that form on the skin as we age, and they typically appear on the face before they appear anywhere else. They tend to be expression lines and they go pretty deep.

Can you do anything about wrinkles?

When it comes to wrinkles, prevention is better than cure. Common causes of wrinkles include: 

  • Smoking
  • Dehydration
  • Genetics
  • Facial expressions like frowning and laughing

If you can avoid causing wrinkles to form it is your best bet of maintaining a more youthful appearance for longer because it can be pretty difficult to get rid of them once they have formed, due to the fact they are more deeply embedded into the skin than other flaws.

Once you have wrinkles, there are a few treatments that can help to reduce their appearance including chemical peels, laser surgeries, and of course, facelifts, but it is pretty difficult to get rid of them using product alone, unlike fine lines, which are not as deeply penetrating and which can often be treated using various serums, moisturizers, and other skin products.

Many people don’t realize there is a difference between fine lines and wrinkles, but fine lines are far less serious as you will find out if you take a look at this infographic, which very clearly and simply explains why fine lines and wrinkles are not the same.
