With age comes wisdom…but there is also something else much more visible that comes with aging too. And that’s those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
Fine lines and wrinkles happen to even the luckiest of people. It’s inevitable, regardless of how much you take care of yourself. However, whilst you cannot stop the clock, you can help minimize the toll aging takes on your skin, especially when it comes to the appearance of little lines around your eyes, mouth and cheeks.
What causes aging skin?
- Sun exposure, free radicals through pollution, and smoke all aggravate aging skin
- Your genes. If wrinkles ran in your family, you’ll usually be prone to them too
- Your age. Lines and wrinkles can start as young as in your twenties, with many women being aware of them in their 30’s. But when you reach 40, this is the age where the production of natural oils, collagen and elastic decreases, leaving skin drier, thinner and less resilient.
