It's important stuff, that collagen, and it's what gives your skin that elasticity that is lost over time (the primary cause of wrinkled skin). Of course, the typical smoker's wrinkles are nothing compared to a chain smoking, tan-bed-aholic princess with bleached blonde hair. Each of us knows at least one of these women; their irrational quest for the perfect tan never ceases to amaze us, nor does the tar capacity of their lungs. How wrinkles appear on the skin?
The root of having wrinkles is lack of moisture in the middle layer of our skin, which is known as ‘dermis. The top layer of our skin is visible and carries the reflection of the middle layer of the skin. A protein in the middle layer of our skin holds moisture and gives elastic effect in our skin.
As we grow older this protein starts reducing and lowers the capacity of holding sufficient moisture in the middle layer. Due to the lack of moisture and protein in the middle layer, the elasticity of our skin starts disappearing and wrinkles appear.
There are several other factors behind wrinkles:
• Smoking of cigarette • Staying under the direct sun • Lacking of moisture • Damaging the middle layer • Hormonal imbalance
How to reduce wrinkles: -
Relax your face. Frowning, grinning or raising your eyebrows creates wrinkles that, over time, become permanent markers on your face. Keep a mirror on your desk or frequently check your face throughout the day. Relax your muscles and try not to make any expression most of the time to reduce those wrinkles caused by your habits.
Eat more fruits and vegetables. The key, says Kraus, are their antioxidant compounds. These compounds fight damage caused by free radicals (unstable molecules that can damage cells), which in turn helps skin look younger and more radiant, and protects against some effects of photo aging.
Exfoliate your facial skin with scrubs that contain hydroxyl acids, which are synthetic applications made from the sugar in fruits. The acids scrub off the dead top layers of skin and stimulate new skin growth.
Sleep on your back. The American Academy of Dermatology cautions that sleeping in certain positions night after night leads to "sleep lines wrinkles that become etched into the surface of the skin and don't disappear once you're up. Sleeping on your side increases wrinkles on cheeks and chin, while sleeping face-down gives you a furrowed brow.
Home Remedies for wrinkle on skin: -
• Apply egg whites to the skin under your eyes. • Odor-free castor oil can be applied to the skin under the eyes or on that of the throat. • Gently massage coconut oil on portions of skin prone to wrinkles every night a bedtime. • A paste of turmeric made with sugarcane juice is great to get rid of wrinkles and slow skin ageing. • Cut a green Thompson seedless grape in half and gently crush it on your face on the wrinkles.
