It doesn’t matter what you call it, we all know it as wrinkles. Until you find a rip in time, you’ll definitely develop wrinkles at some point. In actuality, it’s a major characteristic of aging! It’s normal, so don’t fret.
But why do wrinkles occur? First, let’s define Wrinkles.
Wrinkles are ridges, folds, creases, in the skin. They appear as get older, but they also occur after staying in water for a long time.
It’s no news that wrinkles come with aging. As you age, your skin gets drier, thinner, and less elastic. As a result, the skin is unable to protect itself from harm. This leads to fine lines, creases, and wrinkles.
Further, facial expressions, like squinting, frowning, and repeatedly smiling, can cause wrinkles at a younger age.
Are wrinkles created equal? No, Wrinkles are divided into two categories:
Static Wrinkles – These are lines that develop due to loss of collagen and elasticity. This makes your skin sag eventually.
Dynamic Wrinkles – These wrinkles are due to repeated facial movements like smiling. Also, these movements lead to creases and folds in the skin.
Instead of trying to battle with wrinkles with expensive creams and medical procedures, why not give a shot at these natural remedies?
