Fine Lines & Wrinkles

When we talk about ageing, we almost instantly talk about wrinkles and fine lines. As we grow older, our body’s capacity to produce collagen, which is responsible for keeping the skin firmer, reduces, and this is where the problem begins. But did you know that there is a difference between fine lines and wrinkles and these are not interchangeable terms?

What are fine lines?
Fine lines, also sometimes known as expression lines, appear around the corners of eyes, mouth, between the eyebrows, and even sometimes the slight beginnings of a furrow on your forehead. These lines are caused due to the facial expressions we make on a daily basis but they are so fine, thin that they are mostly just on the superficial layers of the skin. Although they start out small, these are the lines that deepen with age.

What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles are much deeper and often appear where the fine lines or the baby wrinkles first started, by deepening them. Over time, with the loss of elastin and collagen, which are responsible for holding in moisture and keeping the skin taut, the skin starts getting thinner and folds start appearing as it starts to sag.

What causes wrinkles and fine lines?
A lot of factors are involved beyond the simple ageing process that could speed up the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Genes: Sometimes, the way your family genetics are, can shape the way you turn out to be and can basically cause more or less wrinkles depending on the genes you possess.

Sun exposure: Sun exposure causes a lot of damage to the skin and without proper protection, constant exposure to the sun can cause the fine lines’ appearance to speed up.

Smoking: Constantly puckering to inhale and exhale the smoke can easily cause fine lines to appear around the mouth. Not only that but when you smoke, it adversely affects the blood supply to your skin, speeding up the ageing process.

Fair skin: As much obsession as there is when it comes to fair skin, it comes with its fair share of problems especially because fine lines might appear and be more visible on this skin type if proper skin care and sun protection is not used.
