Fine Lines and Wrinkles

I will never forget spotting my first wrinkle! It was indeed a sobering moment! I vowed to stop frowning and with a little Botox™ now then and have pretty much kept that wrinkle at bay!  Fine lines and wrinkles are some of the first signs of aging to show up. And though this is the best time to jump with both feet into an Anti-Aging regimen, it is never to late to reverse the effects of aging.

What causes fine lines and wrinkles?  This is a good question with a myriad of right answers.  Number 1 reason is repetitive facial movements. A line is a crease in the collagen.  Any facial gesture has a subsequent crease or creases associated with it.  Smiling, frowning, laughing, crying . . . when your facial muscles move the skin above has to accommodate it.   Botox™ works by interrupting the signal of the muscle to move.

Number 2 reason for wrinkling is collagen breakdown and the Number 1 cause of that is sun exposure.  You’ll read these words over and over again in my website.  If you would have a youthful face well into your eighties, avoid the sun. Sunscreen, shade, sunglasses, hats . . . do it all. You will never regret it.
