Wrinkles are a consequence of the aging process and external conditions. Their development cannot be stopped completely but can be slowed down and decreased. It is important to protect yourself from sun exposure from young age, especially in the period from 10am to 16pm when the sun is peaking. Smoking, smog, nutrition, lifestyle and other factors have great effect on the development of wrinkles. The greatest culprit for development of wrinkles, apart from aging, is stress, sun and smoking.
We can divide wrinkles into those created by aging, those created by external conditions and those that are a combination of both. We can form another separate group of wrinkles - mimic wrinkles developed from irregular use of facial mimic muscles which are used for various expressions. Mimic wrinkles are not linked to aging because they appear in the twenties. Mimic wrinkles appear on one's forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and in the corners of one's lips. For the wrinkles to decrease it is necessary to define the type of wrinkles and then choose a method for best results. Lifestyle, nutrition, water intake and antioxidants along with physical activity considerably decrease the development of wrinkles. Newest research has proved that after reaching your thirties it is necessary to start with preventive treatments to prevent and decrease their development. Best results are achieved with the combination of various methods and treatments.
