How to Remove Wrinkles Depends on What Caused Them

Updated on March 16, 2011

All About the Age Wrinkle

As we age collagen begins to break down in the skin causing wrinkles. To keep a youthful look and learning how to remove wrinkles is the new craze these days. With the advances in medicine have come new creams and lotions proven to help replace collagen which keeps the skin looking young and healthy.

These new creams work by keeping the skin well hydrated and by removing skin cells at an accelerated rate. There are also surgical procedures if these anti wrinkle creams fail to work, but I think these wrinkle treatments should only be used as a last resort.

What causes wrinkles to form any way. Well there is no doubt that everyone will have wrinkles formed on there faces at some point because of age. There are also environmental and lifestyle factors that can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles.

The largest contributing factor to premature lines is the sun. the sun although we need it to live is bad for the skin. After only ten minutes in direct sunlight the ultra violet rays begin to damage the skin cells. Using a facial sunblock is very important in preventing damaging rays from the sun.

The second cause and totally controllable reason for aging prematurely is smoking. I cannot tell you enough the difference not smoking will make in your skin. It is absolutely amazing the difference not smoking will make for your skin. Now that I am in my fifties I have friends who have smoked for over thirty years and those who do look wrinkled bad. So stop smoking now to prevent premature wrinkling.

The reason smoking causes wrinkles is because the smoke dries out the skin cells, so instead of having plump skin cells, you have dried out ones if you smoke. Wrinkles around the lips will also be very prominent from the constant pursing of lips from inhaling on the cigarette. So not only is smoking bad for your overall health it can also ruin your looks.

Another factor in wrinkling early is lifestyle habits such as not drinking enough water or not exercising enough. It is said everyone should drink six to eight glasses of water a day but most people do not. Drinking plenty of water is important to healthy skin because that is what it is made of water. Drinking coffee and teas area diuretic and will cause the loss of water in the skin. So drop the cup of Joe and head to the water cooler, at least for you skins sake.
