Besides the effects of gravity on the skin as we age, our skin is also at the mercy of damage from the sun, harsh weather, pollution and bad habits, all of which can exaggerate the signs of aging. How your skin ages will therefore depend on various factors, such as your lifestyle, diet, genetic make-up, and personal habits.
Our daily facial expressions, such as smiling, laughing squinting and frowning, all contribute to making wrinkles appear more prominent.
Smoking causes a reduction in the production of new collagen, which results in the development of wrinkles.
Free radicals, harmful particles that damage the skin and also cause premature wrinkles (among other effects), are produced by exposure to the sun and are present in pollution and cigarette smoke.
Other personal factors that contribute to aging of the skin include stress, obesity, and even sleep position.
