Wrinkles are a result of aging, unhealthy skin and make us look older than we are. Some wrinkles can become deep crevices or furrows and may be especially noticeable around your eyes, mouth and neck, lifehealthandfood.com reports.
According to mariobadescu.com, the wrinkle process happens in the dermis, the second layer of skin which contains the structural elements of the skin, mostly proteins that give the skin its elasticity and strength, like collagen and elastin.
As we age, the cells divide more slowly, the dermis begins to thin and the network of collagen and elastin fibers begin to loosen, causing depressions on the surface.
We can not stop time but we can take preventative measures to slow the wrinkling process down and keep our skin looking smooth and healthy longer.
