Collagen loss and environmental factors can lead to signs of aging on your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles affect almost everyone eventually. Fortunately, you can take steps to prevent or reduce these frustrating lines and regain your firm, youthful look. In many cases, you can achieve the results you want without surgery or long recovery times.
What Causes Fine Lines and Wrinkles?
Several factors contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Your lines may come from a combination of many causes.
- Collagen loss that leads to skin laxity and loss of elasticity
- Sun damage that leads to cellular damage
- Lifestyle choices like smoking or alcohol use
- Lack of hydration and good nutrition
In addition, genetics play a strong role in the formation of lines and wrinkles. You are likely to develop this issue at a similar age to your family members unless you take steps to avoid it.
