Wrinkles are one of the natural part of aging, are prominent on sun exposed skin, such as hands, neck and forearms. Face wrinkles are delicate creases which are particularly visible on the hands, neck and face. Thin, sagging skin causes most of them. There is an appearance of wrinkles where the elastin and collagen in the connective tissue of the skin decreases or weakens in number.

The skin with an appearance of wrinkles appears thinner. Smoothness, elasticity and the natural fat content are lost. As aging progresses, face wrinkles commonly appear but premature appearance of face wrinkles is a matter of concern and proper precautions should be taken. There are lots of causes of wrinkles. There are several common factors that cause wrinkles some of which include smoking, over-exposure to the sun, drug use, pollution, stress, weight-loss, loss of vitamin E and other factors.

Although genetics mainly determine skin texture and structure, sun exposure is a major cause of wrinkles, especially for fair people.

Formation of wrinkles: As our skin ages, there is slower collagen and elastin production (proteins that help to keep the skin to remain elastic and firm) and the skin also becomes thinner. The skin is genetically predetermined to age but skin damages (that are controllable) can speed up the damage. Free radicals attack healthy cells by a chemical process in unstable molecules called oxidation. It will later show up as discoloration, sagging of the skin, wrinkling and other similar skin conditions.

 

There are countless way to prevent face wrinkles:

Use a good sunscreen lotion whenever you go out in the sun. Always follow a diet rich in fruit, whole grain and vegetables. Use natural lotion and moisturizer regularly. Drink less alcohol.

 

Natural Ways to reduce wrinkles

STOP SMOKING. From studies it is confirmed that smoking ages skin, because there is the release of an enzyme that breaks down collagen and elastin (important components of the skin). Even if some research is still controversial, more and more research is confirming that cigarette smoke ages skin.

DRINK A LOT OF WATER. One of the things that can make the skin dull, drier and older is dehydration. Drink more water to keep the body hydrated, to flush out toxins from the body and deliver nutrients to the cells. It helps internal organs to function effectively and properly, leading to clearer skin and plumper skin cells.

Some suggest drinking distilled or filtered water to avoid chemicals or impurities that might be present in tap water. You can add few drops of pure fruit juice or add slices of fruit to make it more appealing. Lemon added to the water first thing in the morning helps the bodys natural detoxification process.

Furthermore, face exercises help in toning the muscles and also improve in circulation, so face gymnastics are good practice. Stretch the muscles to keep them strong and healthy. Exercise helps in elasticity of muscle and skin. Face wrinkles reduce through face lift exercises.
