I'm twenty, and I already have wrinkles. Not deep ones, but there are defiant lines forming under my eyes and around my mouth. When I first noticed them, I did a little panicking, then set out to find what is up with my face.
I looked up how and why certain wrinkles are formed. They start as your skin loses it's elasticity and gravity starts taking it's toll. They are sped up by exposure to sunlight, smoking, bad skincare, and having a poor diet.
Not all apply to me, but these are the most common wrinkles that appear earliest on women: Droopy upper eyelid
: Imagine a little extra skin just below your eyebrow and resting above your eye. This make you look tired even if you're not and heavy in the eyes. This happens because your eyelids and eyebrows are more or less always active on your face, whether or not you realize it, which aids in loss of elasticity as you get older. Brow lines at the top of you nose
: These come from activity of the eyebrows, again. Constant furrowing or tightening them together to make faces of disgust cause these. Wrinkles here can cause you to look angry or mad even if you're not.Crow's feet
: These form at the outer corner of your eyes. These typically make them person look like they are smiling and have "happy eyes." It's rumored that these form from laughing too much, which can lead people to assume you are a very happy person.Wrinkles under the eyes
: these don't have the same effect as crow's feet. Bags under the eyes make you look tired even when you're not. These happen again from constant blinking and just come with age. Constantly squinting speeds up the process (that's what I get for not wearing my glasses when I should). Laugh lines
: Lines on the sides of your mouth. When you smile, you naturally cause these lines to happen as you pull the skin back. Eventually, they appear even when you don't smile, but like crow's feet, it's a rumor that happy people who smile often develop these kind of wrinkles.
To remedy these, there's Botox
and eighty-million anti-wrinkle creams, but I'm skeptic about trying anything to alter the wrinkles forming since I'm young. Plus, I don't give a lot
Do you or anyone you know already have wrinkles? Are creams and Botox really worth it? What do you do to get rid of wrinkles? Ms. Avocado
