30 Effective Home Remedies To Get Wrinkle-Free Skin

What Causes Wrinkles on Skin?

As you age, your skin tends to lose its elasticity and moisture. These wrinkles typically appear perpendicular to the underlying muscles. For example, frown lines of the forehead are horizontal, and the underlying frontalis muscle is a vertically oriented muscle. The elastin and collagen fibers start to degrade, and as we age, we lose our ability to repair the collagen fibers. The lack of these two factors is the prime reason for the birth of wrinkles. There are many other reasons for these wrinkles to occur before time or be more pronounced. They are as listed below:
  • Pollution
  • Extensive exposure to the sun
  • Lack of vitamin D3
  • Excessive use of cosmetics
  • Constant changing of creams and cosmetics
  • Smoking (1, 2)

Areas Of The Skin Prone To Wrinkle Formation

The skin on the face is the most sensitive and thin when compared to the rest of the body. Hence, wrinkles on the face are quite common. Wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead, and laugh lines or wrinkles around the mouth are very common. Neck wrinkles are also seen where the skin also tends to start sagging with age. Wrinkles on the chest, hands, and feet also develop in time.
