Are Wrinkles the Normal?
Yes, wrinkles are common in healthy skin. These are the folds and furrows that appear because the skin loses elasticity and strength over time. However, even newborns have folds around the joints where their arms and legs bend and unbend, and "bandages" where they have too much subcutaneous fat.
Where do they appear?
Wrinkles don't appear suddenly and all at once, unless there are exceptions like systemic diseases, when suddenly a mass of cells accumulates in the skin. So it's easy to predict where wrinkles will appear:
- places where muscles are most likely to contract. For example, if you frown or smile, wrinkles appear around the eyes and on the forehead.
- places that are most likely to be exposed to UV light. The sun that gives us a tan contributes to the appearance of wrinkles.
- places where the skin is thin. There it simply loses collagen (the protein responsible for strength and elasticity) the fastest.
What affects the appearance of wrinkles?
First of all, it is age, which spares no one.
Secondly, wrinkles are the result of ultraviolet light. The sun also stains them by changing the collagen structure. And the lighter the skin tone, the more prone it is to sun wrinkles.
When is it time to treat wrinkles?
Since wrinkles do not affect health in general, but only aesthetics, it all depends on the state of the wallet and personal view of beauty. Of course, it is always easier to deal with prevention, since wrinkles are unlikely to come into fashion anytime soon.
What can I do to keep my wrinkles to a minimum?
There are not many ways to avoid the appearance of wrinkles. For example, you can always walk around with a stone face, so as not to provoke the appearance of expression lines (well, at least not to frown).
