WRINKLES, FINE LINES AND HOW TO TREAT THEM

December 30, 2021

WRINKLES, FINE LINES AND HOW TO TREAT THEM

Fine lines and wrinkles are the most common signs of skin aging.  They are caused by a lot of different factors and they start to appear in our 20s or 30s.  They often develop and appear on the forehead, the sides of the eyes and mouth and become more visible as we age.   What makes fine lines different from wrinkles? And what can we do to prevent, treat and make them go away?



WHAT ARE FINE LINES?

Fine lines are small wrinkles with a depth of less than 1mm.  They are not very easy to see and can only be noticed if you look at your skin closely, or when you make certain facial expressions that form some folds in your skin. 

Fine lines are superficial wrinkles that usually form in the face, neck and in other parts of the body.  They form near the eyes and mouth.  These are the first visible signs of skin aging, and they become deeper as we age and when left untreated. 



WHAT ARE WRINKLES?

Wrinkles, also called rhytides, are lines, folds or creases in the skin that develop deeper than 1mm.  They are more visible than fine lines, and even appear even if your face is in a neutral position, or when you are not making any facial expressions.  

There are 4 types of wrinkles. 

1. Atrophic Crinkling Rhytids

These are fine lines that are parallel to each other but can fade away when your skin is stretched.  

2. Permanent Elastic Creases

Fine lines that become permanent wrinkles as we grow older. They appear on the cheeks, upper lip, neck, and decolletage or the shoulders and chest area.  Wrinkles around the lip area are worsened by smoking.

3. Dynamic Expression Lines

These are wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements on the face. They are your Crow’s Feet, laugh lines and forehead wrinkles! 

As facial muscles move, creases in the skin also develop and can become permanently etched with the passage of time. 

4. Gravitational Folds

The wrinkles formed because of gravity pulling down on skin.  It causes sagging and folding, and occurs naturally as we age. These wrinkles on the face are also related to skin thickness. A plumper face with thicker skin shows fewer gravity folds as compared to thinner skin.



WHY DO WE HAVE FINE LINES AND WRINKLES 

Wrinkles and fine lines appear because of intrinsic and extrinsic factors.  Intrinsic factors are those that occur naturally and physiologically because of our body systems, or the different changes that occur in our bodies which affect our skin as we age.  

Extrinsic factors include those from the environment that affect our skin, and our lifestyles and habits that also lead to premature skin aging. 

1. Age 

Studies have shown that skin thickness decreases by 6.4 percent every 10 years.  This results in various changes in our skin, like the development of fine lines and wrinkles, thinning and sagging as we age!

Skin aging comes with growing old.  Loss of fatty tissues, slower cell reproduction, less hydration and so many other factors make our skin lose its elasticity, firmness and plumpness!  

2. Exposure to sun 

Sun exposure affects and damages our skin more than natural aging.  Research suggests that 80 percent of visible signs of skin aging is due to UV radiation from the sun! Sun damage reduces our collagen levels and destroys our skin barrier.  

Aside from rapid development of lines and wrinkles, unprotected and prolonged sun exposure also results in other skin damage like hyperpigmentation, skin cancer and other forms of skin discoloration. 

3. Smoking 

Smoking causes severe skin damage and it results in the skin system losing its ability to repair itself! 

Researchers have found that smokers have lower skin elasticity and density compared to non-smokers, making them develop fine lines and wrinkles faster. Smokers are more likely to develop facial wrinkling!

4. Facial expressions / contractions 

Wrinkles and lines develop because of muscular contractions from different facial expressions like squinting, smiling, frowning or laughing! 

They come as lines that are unnoticeable at first, then develop into deep seated wrinkles overtime. 

There are also other surprising causes of wrinkles like drinking from a straw, and consuming too much sugar which results in glycation.  



THE BEST SKINCARE REMEDIES FOR FINE LINES AND WRINKLES 

Lines and wrinkles can never go away completely.  However, we can prevent and make them less visible.  We simply need good skincare habits, a proper skincare routine, a clean and healthy lifestyle, and effective ingredients that can let us embrace our skin and our YEOUTH!
