We were all born with smooth, baby-soft skin. When we were children, the muscles under our skin contracted to display facial lines of emotion, signifying happiness or sadness. As soon as our emotions returned to normal, our expression lines disappear.
But as we go through a lifetime of emotions and our skin begins to lose its elasticity, those facial lines do not go away completely, making us look older than we feel. Our skin becomes a road map showing the effects of where we have been and what we have done.
Causes of facial wrinkles:
- Sun exposure
- Alcohol use
- Poor nutrition
