Sadly, for all of us, wrinkles are part of the natural ageing process.
They are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. These two hormones provide the support for the skins structure to keep it smooth and resilient. When these hormones break down, the skin begins to loose it’s strength and elasticity, causing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
For most people, the cause of skin ageing is exposure to UV rays without the necessary care to protect the skin. In some cases, heredity can play a role along with years of natural face expression, which usually causes the occurrence of wrinkles to first appear around the eyes and mouth.
Unfortunately, the process of wrinkles is a natural one so there is no way to ‘prevent’ this from happening eventually, however there are ways to help make the process a little more prolonged and reduce the appearance:
• Use a sunscreen with at least SPF15
• Use products with Vitamin E in them
• Invest in good anti-ageing moisturizers and other products
