What are the causes of Wrinkles

Wrinkles : Symptoms and Causes

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the Aging process. Believe it or not, not all wrinkles are alike. And wrinkles are not all “bad”. But guess what, Not all wrinkles are created equal !! There are two types of wrinkles: Dynamic and Static, If it weren’t for the presence of certain wrinkles, our faces would lack expressiveness and personality.

Dynamic (or active) Wrinkles appear when we use muscles to form facial expressions, such as frowning or furrowing the brow. Whenever you use your face to express an emotion or thought by contorting it into a smile, frown, or look of fear, suspicion, doubt, surprise, or joy. Static Wrinkles do not fade when our facial muscles relax, which can be the source of great frustration for many people. Static wrinkles remain on the face, whether we want them to or not, becoming only more prominent with age. These are permanent wrinkles that begin to develop in our twenties and continue to become deeper over time.

Wrinkles are caused by a combination of factors, some you can control, others you can’t. Here are few causes of wrinkles.

Overexposure to Sun

Primary cause of wrinkles is the Ultraviolet radiation which speeds the natural aging process. Overexposure to sun can cause your skin’s connective tissue to breakdown which leads to losing strength and flexibility. As a result of this skin begins to sag and wrinkle prematurely. Take necessary steps to prevent early wrinkling and other skin related issues by using sunscreens before you go out in the sun.

Poor diet

Poor protein intake results in lack of collagen in the skin which leads to wrinkles and fine lines. Collagen is made of proteins and fat, and any diets lacking high-quality protein will lead to wrinkles and sagging skin quickly. Most women fear eating too much protein because they think they would gain weight, but the opposite is true. You should not eat too much of protein because that can also age your skin, but you should eat enough.


Smoking can speed up the normal aging process of your skin, contributing to wrinkles. The more cigarettes you smoke and the longer you smoke, the more skin wrinkling you are likely to have. This early skin damage from smoking may be hard for you to see in the beginning. Smoking not only causes wrinkling on the face but also other parts of your body like inner arms. So quit smoking for a healthy life.


Wrinkling due to age is a factor that you cannot control. As you get older, your skin naturally becomes less elastic and more delicate. 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 evident lines and crevices.

Environmental Pollution

This is one of the leading causes of wrinkles and sagging of skin. Toxic pollutants in cities accelerate age spots and wrinkles significantly. These substances can put a strain on our bodies which are bad for our skin. If you live in a heavily polluted area you can reduce the affects environmental pollution and protect your skin and your body by eating a nutritious diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and taking an antioxidant-rich vitamin supplement.
