The 4 Major Causes of Wrinkles

Wrinkles may be caused by several factors. There are some that you can control, while there are others that you cannot.

Let us look at the 4 major causes of wrinkles and what you can do about them.

1. Age. As you get older, your skin naturally becomes less elastic and more fragile. Decreased production of natural oils dries your skin and makes it appear more wrinkled. Fat in the deeper layers of your skin diminishes. This causes loose, saggy skin and more-pronounced lines and crevices.

2. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. Ultraviolet radiation is the primary cause of early wrinkling. Exposure to UV light breaks down your skin’s connective tissue — collagen and elastin fibers, which lie in the deeper layer of skin (dermis). Without the supportive connective tissue, your skin loses strength and flexibility. Skin then begins to sag and wrinkle prematurely. Sunscreen is your friend. Remember to use it always to prevent those harmful rays from damaging your skin.

3. Smoking. Smoking can accelerate the normal aging process of your skin, contributing to wrinkles. This may be due to changes in the blood supply to your skin. It’s no wonder that this is considered a very bad lifestyle habit.

4. Repeated facial expressions. Facial movements and expressions, such as squinting or smiling, lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. As skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place. These grooves then become permanent features on your face.

While no one has found a way to reverse the aging process – yet, there is a remarkable product that slows it down. The OneTruth818 serum has shown amazing results in eliminating wrinkles and age spots and rejuvenating the skin to give you that youthful looking glow once more.
