Last update: August 02, 2022, 10:15 AM IST

Although aging is said to be a long process that happens gradually over many years, your skin often starts showing signs of aging sooner. You must first have a basic understanding of skin aging and how it manifests itself in order to know which skin care is best for your skin type, age, and the climate you live in. Which form is most appropriate? Among these methods are wrinkles and fine lines.

What do wrinkles look like?
These, often called rhytides, are primarily recognizable as folds on your skin. Aging of the skin and decreased production of collagen and elastin, which causes the skin to become loose and wrinkled, are common causes of wrinkles. Skin becomes less elastic and more vulnerable to environmental damage. Over time, the skin can be seen to dry out and lose its firmness and flaking.

How can wrinkles be avoided?

  • The first step to preventing the early formation of wrinkles is to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
  • A retinoid (extract of vitamin A) can be quite beneficial in these situations. It can make a huge difference to hydrate with a decent body and face moisturizer that has an effective formulation.
  • Drinking plenty of water and using water-based sleeping masks can restore internal hydration to your skin, keeping it soft and supple.
  • Eating a diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins gives your body the resources it needs to maintain a healthy collagen balance, which keeps your skin elastic.

Defining fine lines
You will notice microscopic shallow creases in areas of your skin that are very thin and delicate, which can be an important sign of aging. Fine lines are usually brought on by repetitive facial movements and are most easily seen around the mouth and eyes when a person frowns, smiles or makes other facial expressions. Wrinkles are much more severe than fine lines.

How can fine lines be avoided or reduced?

  • Maintaining a daily intake of water is the first step to staying hydrated. Fine wrinkles can also be reduced by using anti-wrinkle creams.
  • Avoid going out in the sun as UV rays can cause a lot of damage to your skin and make your skin prone to fine lines.
  • Getting adequate sleep is very important because often, not getting enough sleep can lead to skin tension and fine lines. Never neglect quality sleep!
