Let's Explore Those Fine Lines & Wrinkles
One thing that comes hand in hand with getting older, is the appearance and development of fine line and wrinkles. The science behind this is simple; during your younger years, the fibers in your skin (collagen and Elastin) provide support allowing your skin to appear radiant and smooth. Over time, these fibers will breakdown resulting in a loss of elasticity and strength leading to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. It is at this point that some of you will turn to a plastic surgeon to return your skin to its previously glory, however we have another solution!
By providing your skin with the necessary protection and more importantly, correct day and night skin care routine, you can prolong the strength and elasticity of Collagen and Elastin which will allow your skin to stay healthy and glowing for longer! In this blog, we will highlight the main causes for fine lines and wrinkles as well as preventive measures which you can take involving your skincare routing
Causes of Fine Line & Wrinkles:
1) Sun Exposure
Excessive exposure to dangerous ultraviolet light with speed up the breakdown of Collagen and Elastin. Sunbathing, tanning booths and outdoor sports will increase the development of wrinkles. To ensure your skin stays protected against UV light, apply a sun cream of at least SPF 30. It has also been proven that Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a great protector of the skin against UV and UVB rays.
Did you know that your body is made up of 75% water!? It goes without saying that a lack of attention to the quantity of water you are consuming daily will have an adverse effect on your skin’s health.
3) Unhealthy Lifestyle
Those of you who regularly smoke and drink, will notice an acceleration in the aging process of your skin. Smokers are reducing the blood supply to the skin and binge drinkers will be dehydrating the skin leaving it more exposed to the development of fine lines and wrinkles
These are the most common (and avoidable) causes to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. The good news is that here at CHOK BEAUTY, we aim to provide a solution to how you can slow down their appearance and even reverse any early development.
