Wrinkles What Are they

A furrow or crease in the skin, especially on the face, neck and chest, but anywhere on the body can become wrinkled. There are two types of wrinkles fine lines and deep creases or furrows.

Wrinkles What Is The Cause

Your skin is made up of collagen bundles that are made up of single strands of linear macro-proteins, the more strands bundled together the stronger and more elastic your skin is. When the bundles of collagen get damaged the elasticity is lost and the once smooth, plump youthful – looking surface becomes wrinkled and pitted. Sun exposure is to blame for most of the collagen damage and can be seen not only in wrinkled skin but dry, sagging skin and dark spots. Age and smoking are also top contenders for the cause of wrinkles. As we age we lose the subcutaneous fat deposits under our skin which is what gives skin that youthful plump look. The nicotine in cigarettes cause narrowing of the blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin. This impairs blood flow causing less oxygen and needed nutrients to get to your skin. With more than 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke many of them can damage the collagen and elastin, resulting in sagging, wrinkled and prematurely aged skin.
