Skin aging is inevitable. Whether we like it or not, the traces of time on the skin are gradually appearing.
The muscles of the face, constantly solicited, leave marks where repeated facial movements are made. The temporary folds fade less and less over the years and deepen, some until they remain permanent.
The Decline in Collagen after the Age of 30
In addition, the production of collagen and elastic fibers decreases with age. By the age of 30, the most abundant protein in the skin – collagen – decreases by 1% each year. This decrease is largely responsible for the slackening of the skin, which becomes thinner, dehydrated, loses its elasticity and its resistance.
A rupture of the tissues takes place in the composition of the dermis, forming wrinkles and fine lines.
The skin around the eyes, which is thinner and more fragile, is also the first to be affected by the signs of aging.
The Different Types
Whether aging wrinkles or expression lines such as horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows or wrinkles around the mouth; wrinkles and fine lines are distinguished by their depth.
Superficial and close to the surface of the skin, fine lines are shallow. They usually form along the major creases and lines visible when smiling or frowning.
The wrinkles are deep and hollowed out, which gives them a much more marked appearance. Of course, fine lines can turn into wrinkles over the years.
Reasons of their Emergence
Beyond skin aging and repeated contraction of facial muscles, various factors can affect the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Whether it’s lack of hydration, sun exposure without adequate protection, smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, or a deficiency in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, lifestyle has been shown to have a real impact on the skin of the face. So contrary to popular belief, genetics is not the only factor to consider.
How to Prevent Them
Protecting your skin from the sun, drinking enough water, moisturizing your face morning and evening, sleeping well, adopting a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle habits are all actions that help prevent and delay the effects of aging.
Solutions to Reduce Them
While it is impossible to stop or reverse the aging process, there are effective solutions to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, or even eliminate them.
