Aging & Wrinkles


Wrinkles and skin sagging are age-related skin changes. Lifestyle can also have a major effect on the skins tendency to wrinkle. Sun exposure, smoking and excessive alcohol are the most common causes of premature skin wrinkles. If you limit sun exposure and alcohol, and avoid smoking, you can reduce the amount of wrinkles you develop.

Wrinkles and sagging are age-related skin changes. Elastin and collagen fibres give the skin suppleness and strength. The numbers of these fibres in the skin are reduced as we age, causing wrinkles. Our skin has a layer of fat just below the surface (subcutaneous layer), which gives form and structure. This layer of fat thins out as we age, causing the skin to sag.

Sun exposure is the most common cause of skin damage and wrinkling. Exposure to the ultraviolet (UV) radiation in sunlight causes changes to the skin. UV rays prompt the formation of free radicals, among other things, which contribute to wrinkling and skin cancer. People with fair skin tend to experience more age-related skin changes, such as wrinkling, than people with dark skin. The best way to prevent wrinkling caused by sun exposure is to:

  • Wear protective clothing
  • Avoid the sun around the middle of the day
  • Use sunscreen for the parts of skin that can't be protected by clothing.

As well as all the other health risks associated with smoking, smokers will have more wrinkles. These changes may not show up till you are in your 30s or 40s but they will happen. Research has shown that people who have never smoked have less wrinkles than smokers.


Where to get help
  • Your doctor or dermatologist
Things to remember
  • UV radiation from sunlight is the major factor in wrinkling skin.
  • Cigarette smoking is also a factor in premature facial wrinkling.
  • Excessive alcohol can cause dehydration drying out the skin resulting in wrinkles and skin sagging.
