First thing first, we need to understand that aging is a natural process, and also a huge contributor for saggy skin and wrinkles. As we are getting older, our body fat percentage will go down, causing loss of volume.
Besides that, our collagen and elastin fibres production will also reduce when we are aging. This causes your skin to lose laxity and elasticity. Over time, your skin will sag and cause wrinkles and folds to form.
Secondly, sun damage is also a main contributor to wrinkles. The exposure to sun harmful UV rays breaks down the collagen and elastin fibres that hold your skin tissues together. This speeds up the aging process more than usual.
Thirdly, lifestyle is also a huge factor. According to a study, those who consume alcohol and smoke cigarettes experience a faster aging process compared to those who do not.
We cannot stop time, but we can have the options on how we look. Wrinkles are part and parcel of aging, but doesn’t mean you can’t control how it affects your body. More about that later.
