Skin Aging: Everything You Need to Know about Fine Lines and Wrinkles

And How SKINS Will Help You Achieve Smoother, Youthful-Looking Skin!

Whether you’re starting to notice the onset of fine lines appearing, or you’ve had deep wrinkles for years, the visible signs of aging can affect your self confidence and make you yearn for more youthful looking skin.

When it comes to erasing lines and wrinkles, understanding what they are and how to reduce their appearance is the first step toward achieving smoother, more radiant skin.

What Are Wrinkles and Why Do We Have Them?

Wrinkles are creases in your skin that start out as shallow, fine lines and deepen over time, resulting in crow’s feet, forehead grooves, and laugh lines.

These are typically one of the first visible signs of aging and can start to appear by your early 30s and deepen over time.

Wrinkles will often appear on the parts of the body that are most exposed to the sun, such as the face and neck.

How Wrinkles Form

The formation of wrinkles is related to two proteins found in your skin known as collagen and elastin. Collagen gives your skin structure the strength it needs, while elastin helps with resiliency and the skin’s ability to move around.

Due to age and several other factors, the collagen and elastin beneath the surface of your skin begin to break down, and your skin can no longer bounce back to its original state. This results in fine lines and eventually wrinkles.

Besides aging, other main causes of wrinkles include:


Not only is smoking bad for your health, it can also wreak havoc on your skin and overall complexion. In fact, a long-term smoking habit can lead to premature wrinkles around your eyes and mouth areas.

Sun Exposure

While a tan might look good for a few months, it can lead to long lasting negative effects when it comes to your skin. In fact, UV exposure is the main cause of approximately 80% of visible signs of aging, including wrinkles. UVA rays damage your skin’s collagen and elastin fibre, making you more susceptible to lines and wrinkles.


Pollution can also significantly impair your skin’s cell function, causing the elastin and collagen to break down, resulting in loose, sagging skin with reduced elasticity.

What Can I Do About Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

Prevention is always the best medicine, especially when it comes to wrinkles.

It’s important to take good care of your skin from an early age and start thinking about wrinkles long before they appear.

Make sure to keep your skin healthy by consistently following a good skin care regime. Also consider using a specialized night cream or serum that targets lines and wrinkles.

Here are some other preventative measures you can take to avoid developing wrinkles:

  • Add more antioxidants to your diet
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Wear SPF 30 on exposed areas every day!
  • Wear night cream
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Avoiding the following will also help to prevent wrinkles from forming:

  • Smoking
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Tugging at your eyes when applying makeup
  • Over-exfoliating
  • Leaving makeup on overnight

How SKINS Can Help

Sometimes, even with a good skin care routine, wrinkles are an inevitable sign of aging.

And while fine lines and wrinkles are considered a natural part of aging, they can often make you feel self conscious about your appearance.

Thankfully, here at SKINS, we have many solutions available to help you look and feel your best and restore your self-confidence.

Check out our top three treatments that will help erase fine lines and wrinkles!

Cosmetic Injections

Botox and Dysport injections are proven to be the most effective treatments when dealing with dynamic wrinkles – wrinkles caused by movement and expression. These injections help to relax the muscle, leaving you with a smoother appearance. Hyaluronic fillers are ideal for plumping up cheeks and lips that lose volume over time due to natural collagen depletion. The best way to imagine this is to think of a balloon slowly loosing air and becoming wrinkly. The filler acts as the air for the balloon, plumping it back up.
