Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. As we get older, skin gets thinner and drier. Collagen and elastin begin to deplete, causing skin to lose its natural firmness and elasticity. This makes the skin less able to protect itself from damage, which leads to wrinkles, creases and lines.
Whenever you move your face, your muscles contract - this includes laughing, concentrating, squinting or frowning. Years of frequent contractions, combined with environmental and lifestyle factors such as smoking and sun exposure, cause lines and wrinkles to form.
Ageing is a natural process and eventually everyone will have wrinkles and lines that become more prominent. You can help slow the process of wrinkles by avoiding excess sun exposure, wearing a good sunscreen and wearing protective clothing such as a wide brimmed sun hat and sunglasses.
You can also use skincare products that include anti-ageing ingredients such as peptides and Vitamin A. It's also wise to avoid smoking and drinking alcohol as these will accelerate ageing.
Regular anti-ageing treatments are currently the most advanced way to slow down the ageing process.
