If you want to reduce wrinkles in a totally natural way, we explain how to make 4 wonderful anti-wrinkle masks at home, with totally natural ingredients.
Before delving into the subject of how to make anti-wrinkle masks, we must elucidate why wrinkles arise and what are the causes of their appearance.
We will start from the basic premise and general knowledge saying that as we age it is natural for wrinkles to appear on our face. But what is the reason that these so feared visitors appear to some people at different ages such as 30, 40 or late 50 years?
We will begin by commenting that there are factors that accelerate this appearance, such as tobacco, the use of sunbeds and excessive exposure of the skin to the sun. Now we will go a little more to the cause of the origin of this phenomenon, we will consider how the skin is made
The skin: its conformation
The skin is made up of three layers: the epidermis (the outer layer), the dermis (middle layer), and the subcutaneous (inner layer).
When we are young, the skin covers well the functions of stretching and conserving moisture. The dermis fulfills the function of elasticity through fibers called elastin. A protein in the dermis called collagen also helps prevent wrinkles.
Over time, the dermis loses both elastin and collagen, therefore the skin becomes thinner and the epidermis has a hard time conserving its natural moisture. To this we must add that the natural fat of the subcutaneous layer that gives smoothness to the skin also disappears, therefore the epidermis begins to deteriorate and the dreaded wrinkles begin to form.
The cause of why wrinkles are far from appearing in human beings, some at 30, others at 40 and others at 50, is due to two factors: one is due to genetics and the other is due to the amount of sebum, the natural oil of the skin., that each person has in his body.
