What are the causes of wrinkles


The appearance of wrinkles in the skin is a natural sign of aging as your skin becomes thinner, drier, and less supple or elastic, indicating that it is less able to protect itself from damage, causing wrinkles and fine lines to form on the skin

Facial expressions, such as a smile, frowning, surprise, defiance, and wrinkles appear noticeably between the eyebrows, the sides of the lips, the sides and bottom of the eyes, and they appear in the form of fine lines and with time they become deep wrinkles


Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun, as it breaks down the bonds of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, which represent the connective tissue that reinforces the skin layer, causing weakness and inelasticity of the skin, so the skin begins to sag and droop, and lines and wrinkles appear


Smoking accelerates the signs of aging, as it reduces blood flow to the skin and constricts blood vessels, depriving the skin of many vitamins that fight the appearance of wrinkles. Smoking also causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin and stresses the skin

Excessive use of alcohol and the use of alcohol-filled products leads to dry skin, exposing it to the appearance of wrinkles

Wrong sleep habits lead to the appearance of fine lines on the face and neck, where the same facial muscles are pushed against the pillow during sleep every night, and then the skin loses its ability to bounce back to its original position with age, and studies have indicated that sleeping and the face buried and rubbed with the pillow causes the appearance of lines under the eyes


Not following a healthy diet rich in leafy vegetables and fruits and an adequate amount of proteins, which prevents the skin from obtaining nutrients and antioxidants that fight free radicals and delay the appearance of wrinkles


Not consuming an appropriate amount of water per day, at least 8 glasses, to protect against dry skin, which is the main cause of wrinkles and to maintain skin elasticity against sagging

Not getting enough sleep between 7 and 9 hours a day, and skin fatigue
Sitting and reclining for long periods in wrong positions, especially in front of phone screens, which causes polarization of the facial muscles, sagging and the appearance of wrinkles
Not moisturizing the skin on a daily basis to protect it from drying out
Exaggerate the use of granular facial scrubs and massage the skin too hard
Vigorously massage the skin when removing make-up

Eating large amounts of sugar, because the high blood sugar level occurs in the body, which negatively affects the collagen in the skin, and then the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Decreased level of protein in the body, in the event of undergoing a diet free of protein and full of carbohydrates
Exposure to anxiety, repeated tension, negative feelings and psychological pressure, as this causes the secretion of stress hormones such as cholesterol and adrenaline, which accelerates the appearance of wrinkles
Drinking soft and alcoholic drinks
