Top 5 Myths About Wrinkles Busted

The truth about wrinkles is much simpler than what is told

Wrinkles are just a part of the natural process which occurs as we age. As we grow old our muscles start to deteriorate. This is true for every part of your body including the skin. It gets thinner, drier, and less elastic, and less able to protect itself from damage. Premature or excess wrinkles can also be caused by factors like too much exposure to sunlight or harsh environments, smoking, use of certain drugs, or excessive stress. Most people go to extreme lengths to cure or hide them. But when it comes to finding the truth about wrinkles there are many myths circulating around. From drinking certain juices to applying different creams some of the 'experts' have apparently figured it all out. Listed below are a few myths which we're going to debunk once and for all.

You should only wear sunscreen on sunny days - Just because the sun is not visible it does not mean you are safe from the UV rays. These rays are a major cause of premature ageing and whenever you step outside protect yourself from them at all costs.

Wrinkles are hereditary - Just because your parents have them doesn't mean you will get them. It depends more on the diet and lifestyle you led than your genes whether you'll have wrinkles or not. People who look younger than their years lead a healthy lifestyle and eat well, exercise regularly and stay out of the sun.

Exercising your face causes Wrinkles - Completely false. Any form of exercise, be it for the body or face, it does not harm the skin. When you get facial massages regularly, you will get a firmer face and tighter skin, which will aid you in reducing those wrinkles.

Botox Causes Wrinkles - Botox might be blamed for many things but wrinkles are not one of them. It is a scientifically proven method of helping treat wrinkles. Many people have chosen this procedure and it has been very effective against wrinkles.

Pillow Wrinkles are Temporary - This might be a hard pill to swallow but it is true. The way you sleep might become a factor and a catalyst for future wrinkles to appear. So, prepare your bed smartly and avoid any sleeping postures which cause wrinkles to form.
