Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. However, there are many factors that contribute to the visible signs of aging with the primary being sun exposure and one’s genetic background. Some people may not notice visible wrinkles until much later in life while others notice wrinkles early in life. This begs the question, “What causes wrinkles to form?” By understanding the contributing factors for wrinkles, you can help to avoid contributing to the causes that result in wrinkles.
The primary cause of wrinkles is due to the normal process of aging. As you get older, your skin loses elasticity, and its production of natural oils decreases. Daily exposure to UV light diminishes the necessary proteins within the skin whereby free radicals lead to a decrease in skin’s cohesion aka wrinkles. Smoking tobacco, pollution and many external factors can accelerate the aging process.
Internally (aka intrinsic) factors such as health, diet or medications can have a bearing on your skin’s overall condition as well. Without the proper balance of nutrients, hydration and moisture, the natural tissues and fats within the deeper layers of the skin begin to break down resulting in sagging or wrinkling of the skin. Additionally, hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body, fills the spaces between cells protecting them by retaining water to serve as a cushion for our joints, which includes skin cells.
