Okay, you may have figured that one out! These are folds on the skin that a person acquires due to their age. The older you get, the more wrinkles pop in.

Another side to this is that, some wrinkles are formed due o our facial expressions. Like for example, a crow’s feet can appear at a much younger age- and this does not necessarily pertain to age.

Then wear and tear of the skin, exposure to harsh climates, excessive smoking and drinking habits, stress and irregular sleeping habits will spoil a person body and face in a short span of time.

If you are dehydrated and exposed a lot to the sun, this could cause further damage to the skin. So, wear a cap, or carry an umbrella aorund.

Happy angle to this is that: Research has recently given away few vital tips and studies that may help reduce the prevalence of wrinkles on our skin- even if we age.

Sounds like something, we can consider, huh? Perfectly right and just switch on that learning nerve within you, and get to know facts that could make you look younger!
