Causes of wrinkles and ways to avoid them
Wrinkles are mostly associated with aging. As we age, the cells of our skin become thinner and lose elasticity because of the decreased levels of collagen production in our body. The skin cells also divide more slowly, thus delaying repair and renewal of the skin.
Also, as we age, the fat cells just under the outer layer of our skin, which makes the skin look supple, get smaller and lose their ability to fill out whatever gaps created by the damage that occurs in the inner layers of our skin. Our skin therefore sags, becomes dry and develops wrinkles as we age.
Wrinkles also develop due to skin damage which is mostly caused by exposure to sunlight. Spending too much time under the sun with minimal or no protection at all causes the skin to be vulnerable to ultraviolet radiation.
Sunlight causes the outer layer of the skin, which is the epidermis, to become thinner, and encourages the overproduction of melanin. Continued sunlight exposure also causes the collagen in our skin to break down more rapidly, faster than natural aging actually does. Loss of collagen results in loss of elasticity for the skin, therefore to skin wrinkling.
Getting wrinkles is a natural process. It is something we cannot avoid, and it is something that starts happening in our twenties and thirties.
Ways to diminish wrinkles
First, keep your skin well-protected from UV ray exposure. This means applying products such as creams and lotions which have SPF protection all over the skin.
Another option is to ensure a proper nutrition and hydration. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables and fish that are rich in vitamins and minerals which fight the development of free radicals in the body. Also, drink plenty of water and fruit juices to keep the body hydrated. Avoid too much black tea and coffee.
Ensure also to have as much sleep as possible. Eight hours sleep a day shall be enough. Sufficient rest keeps the body from being stressed since chronic stress accelerates the aging process.
Lastly, do your best to give up smoking which dehydrates the skin and burns away the nutrients of the body.
