Edited by Witz Taluban, Eng, Lynn, Jmgf and 18 others

The aging process cannot be completely prevented, but there are several ways you can slow it down. As you age, you will begin to notice fine lines and wrinkles popping up on different areas of your face that become more pronounced over time if they're not dealt with immediately. While there are several over-the-counter products that can prevent and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, you can avoid exposure to chemicals and save money by opting for natural prevention methods. Using a face mask made from ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen two or three times a week can help plump your skin, improve circulation and brighten the skin tone.

Wrinkles and fine lines are exacerbated by a number of external factors, but they're ultimately caused by the loss of collagen in the skin, which in turn, reduces the elasticity and volume of the skin. This collagen and elastin serves as a support system for the skin to help keep it smooth, strong, supple and resilient. However, when the skin fibers break, the skin will lose its strength and elasticity, and fine lines and wrinkles will then begin to form. Actions and repeated expressions like frowning, squinting and even laughing are some of the actions that can cause lines on the face.

Types of Wrinkles

  1. 1
    Dynamic wrinkles.
    Jmgf crows-feet1.jpg
    These types of wrinkle are the ones most commonly caused by repeated muscle action, usually in the form of squinting of the eyes, frowning and furrowing of the brow. The lines that are constantly formed by the contraction of the muscles during certain facial expressions causes the dynamic wrinkles to be formed. Crow's feet, Lines in between the brows and wrinkle lines on the forehead are all examples of dynamic wrinkles.

    These types of wrinkles are associated with the age and lifestyle of a person. Here, vices such as smoking and drinking are often some of the main causes for these types of wrinkles. Essentially, the dynamic wrinkles gradually become static wrinkles over time. Lines around the eyes that usually begin at the age of 30 and a crosshatched skin appearance are some examples of static wrinkles.

Causes of Fine Lines & Wrinkles

  1. 1
    Aging processes.
    Wrinkles and fine lines are a naturally occurring process. As a person gets older, the collagen and the elastin begins to break down, and without the means of having a strong support system for the skin, the lines and the wrinkles start to become visible on the face. The aging process is one of the top reasons why wrinkles and fine lines appear on the skin, because the body's ability to hold in the moisture is lessened as the age increases.

  2. 2
    Sun damage.
    Excessive damage from the sun's harmful UV rays causes the skin layer that holds in the moisture to lose all the water content. Overexposure from the sun ultimately damages the skin cells from within, and it can even lead to skin cancer. It will result in fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration.

  3. 3
    Muscle movement and expressions.
    Constant facial expressions like the furrowing of the brow will create a repeated movement that will cause a folding of the skin. The more that the muscles are used, the more that the muscles will adjust and imprint the action into the skin.

    Unhealthy habits.
    Eating healthy foods, sleeping 7 or 8 hours a night and drinking at least 8 glasses of water are some of the most important habits to develop if you want clear, supple skin. If you're lacking sleep, healthy nutrients and water, your body can't keep up with the essential healing and repairing processes, and it will eventually show in your skin.

    We all know that smoking is bad for your lungs, can lead to heart disease, bad breath, yellow teeth, and a stinky house, but most don't know the effects it has on the body's aging process. Smoking or being exposed to second hand smoke causes us to age prematurely, and thus causes the aging and drying out of our skin leading to fine lines and wrinkles.

    Stress has a huge effect on appearance, especially when it causes you to neglect your basic health and skincare. It can also cause premature cell death, shortening of telomeres and expression lines from frowning and furrowing the brow.

Yes, cinnamon can effectively reduce wrinkles of the skin. The rationale behind it is that cinnamon extract effectively slows down the rate of the production of the AGEs or Advanced glycation end products which leads to wrinkle formation on the skin. The term glycation is a process in the body that allows sugar molecules to bind in the proteins of the body making the protein more deformed and stiff. When glycation occurs to the elastin and collagen in the skin, the end result is the skin losses its radiance and becomes more deformed causing wrinkles. Cinnamon on the other hand, effectively reduces glycation on the skin slowing down the formation of wrinkles. Additional skin benefits of cinnamon are it has anti-bacterial properties, soothes the skin and increases the blood flow making the skin more healthy.

Will lemon and honey alone get rid of discoloration on face like acne scars that are brownish and reddish color? How long will it take to diminish them if applied routinely?

Discoloration marks on face from acne scars.

Acne scars take time to heal, but lemon and yogurt have acids which exfoliate dead skin and encourage new cells to produce. Lemon juice also has brightening properties. Honey is a moisturizer, so it won't totally fix the scars, but providing moisture to the skin can keep it healthy and encourage healing. Use the mask at least two or three times a week, and work your way up to daily if you skin responds well to it. You should see a reduction in the discoloration within a few weeks.

I have questions about glycolic acid, and cinnamaldehyde?

'Why does the cyanohydrin derived from formaldehyde, seem to help skin? I have heard both that it strips a thin layer of mostly dead skin cells off the surface, and that, formaldehyde, can also be produced from E-cigarettes, because they use glycol, or propelene glycol, glycolic acid, etc, in there liquid tobacco, and that it is toxic if vaporized, and what is all of this formaldehyde stuff?

I am a 20 years old guy, but very conscious of my skin?

My facial pores clog, even though I mask my face when getting outside. Avoid pollution and best in diet. I have a question, should I stop smiling to avoid wrinkles

Stopping a smile does not stop a wrinkle from forming. Your pores are clogging because of excess oil production and even when you cover your face, you are introducing bacteria from the cover to your face. Use an oil free moisturizer as well as exfoliate your face twice a week.
