What are Fine lines and Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are lines that form on your skin. They’re a natural part of your body’s aging process. Wrinkles on your skin look similar to the wrinkles you get on a shirt that needs ironed. They appear as folds, creases or ridges. They’re most often found on your face, neck and arms, but wrinkles can appear anywhere on your body. 

What causes Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

The natural ageing process plays a key role in the appearance of our skin over time. When we are young our skin is flexible and full of collagen, allowing it to maintain a tight and smooth appearance. However, as we age, our skin cells lose their memory and slowly deteriorate. The result is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles which can appear anywhere on the body but mostly occur on the face, neck and decolletage.  

The result of this process is different for each individual and is affected by genetic tendencies, skin phototype and other environmental factors such as pollution, smoking, alcohol, and sun exposure.

What is the difference between expression lines and sleep wrinkles?

Expression lines form along the dynamic lines that appear when you laugh, smile or frown and are the most common. 

Sleep wrinkles form in a slightly different pattern based on how your face is positioned when you sleep. If you routinely sleep on your side or stomach, you may develop sleep wrinkles in addition to expression lines. 

What are the different types of wrinkles?

The lines and wrinkles on our face can be defined as either static or dynamic. Dynamic lines are caused by movement of the facial muscles, visible only when making a facial expression. So, these lines appear and disappear with movement.  

Static wrinkles are those that are deep lines on face which appear permanently in the skin after many years of smiling, frowning and raising the eyebrows. Ageing, sun damage or weight loss can contribute to the formation of static wrinkles. 

What’s the difference between fine lines and wrinkles?

Fine lines are the start of wrinkles and look like small creases on your skin. They’re closer to the surface of your skin, whereas wrinkles are deeper into your skin. You’ll notice fine lines on your face where you make repetitive movements, like around your eyes and your mouth when you smile or squint. Wrinkles are deeper creases or folds within your skin that can form anywhere on your body.

How can I prevent wrinkles?

Your body naturally produces wrinkles as you age. While you can’t prevent wrinkles, you can reduce your risk of getting wrinkles early by: 

  • Wearing sunscreen daily to prevent sun damage. 
  • Not using tanning beds. 
  • Moisturizing your skin daily. 
  • Washing your face or using a cleanser to remove makeup. 
  • Not smoking. 
  • Staying hydrated. 
  • Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet. 
What foods and drinks help reduce wrinkles?

The nutrients you eat and drink help your skin stay healthy. Keeping your skin healthy prevents wrinkles.  

Add the following to your well-balanced diet to keep your skin healthy and minimize wrinkles: 

  • Water. 
  • Vitamins A and C. 
  • Protein (poultry, fish, eggs and lean meats). 

While they may be tempting and delicious, avoid eating foods that are high in fat and sugar as they could damage collagen in your skin.
