Life style habits, stress, diet, certain medication, environmental chemicals found in some cosmetics, general aging...................
Some simple reasons for wrinkles include:
What causes this to happen? Take a look
at the illustration below.................
When the dermis is young, the upper layer is thick, and full of elasticity along with rich capillaries, proteins and collagen.
It's able to resist muscle tension and does not develop a grove or crease with repeated facial muscle is contractions – such as a frowning, squinting, or smiling....which is what causes a wrinkle over time.
However with age, the upper dermis thins out and becomes drier.
It has less capillaries, proteins (important for maintaiing moisture), subcutaneous fat and the all important elastin and collagen.
This all leads to a less resilient dermis , which causes it adhere to the underlying facial muscle tissue.....
This is what causes deep wrinkles and folds over time.
But lucky for us - unlike our grandparents - we live in an exciting time with all sorts of technology to keep us looking great and sexy well into senior years.

Caring for adult acne is a challenge because the products need to be very gentle. You should always try to avoid any product that causes over-drying.
There are two basic types -- Dynamic and Static.
Dynamic - These are usually caused by repetitive movement (in conjunction with upper dermis thinning and loss of collagen.) And, they are pretty deep and are more challenging to treat.

Static - These appear on the areas that are very delicate, thin, or dry....i.e less oil glands. We usually see these fine lines around the eyes, upper cheeks, and neck. But there are treatments that can help.
