Why Do Wrinkles Occur?

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. Our skin's elasticity gradually diminishes as we age. Moreover, the production of natural oil also decreases, making our skin drier. Also, the fat deposits in certain layers of our skin also gradually disappear, causing our skin to sag and become loose. In effect, all these processes cause our skin to create creases, lines and crevices that prominently appear around our eyes, mouth, neck and other areas of our body.

Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can also speed up our aging process. UV rays break down our skin fibers and other elastic tissues. This will result in premature wrinkling and sagging of our skin.

Stress, poor nutrition and other environmental factors also contribute to premature aging of our skin. Smoking, in particular, accelerates this rate because nicotine and other chemicals present in tobacco and cigarettes cause adverse effects on the skin's blood and oxygen supply.

Gender also plays a key role in the development of wrinkles. Women are more prone to getting wrinkles because they have fewer sweat and sebaceous glands that moisturize and lubricate their skin.

Repeated facial expressions like smiling and squinting can also produce these facial lines and creases. Each time you move a facial muscle, lines and crevices are created on the surface of the skin due to the formation of grooves beneath it. Ideally, these lines and grooves spring back into place after each facial movement. But as we age, our skin loses its elasticity and flexibility, making these creases a permanent facial fixture.
