Wrinkles : Causes and Home remedies

Wrinkles are delicate creases caused by thin, sagging skin. Wrinkles visible on the face, neck and hands. Wrinkles appear when the collagen and elastin present in the connective tissue of the skin is weakened. Skin that has suffered such damage appears thinner, loses fat content, elasticity and smoothness.


1.Over exposure to sun.The damage caused by the ultraviolet rays of the sun is known as photo ageing.
2.Smoking hastens the ageing process. The large amount of free radicals produced by cigarette smoke is one of the biggest culprits for premature wrinkles.
3.Environmental factors such as exposure to air pollutants, dust, chemicals and harsh lights can cause wrinkles on skin over a period of time.
4.Repeated motions such as squinting can cause wrinkles around the eyes. These are referred to as "crow's feet".
5.Smiling and frowning can also cause laugh lines around the mouth or frown lines on the forehead.
7.Rapid weight loss can cause wrinkles as the volume of the fat cells are drastically reduced. This causes the skin to sag and crease.
8.Depletion of vitamin E can cause the skin quality to deteriorate.
