Wrinkles are a natural part of aging. We all take pride in our wisdom and independence as we get older.  But, as you experience an increasing number and depth of your wrinkles, or you just want to help prevent them from showing up in the first place, there's plenty that you can do.

 

We're going to share six common myths about wrinkles that might be preventing you from taking action against them right now. Before we dive into that though, how exactly do wrinkles form?

 

Let's find out.

 

How Wrinkles Form

How Wrinkles Form

Just before we get to debunking some of the most common myths about wrinkles, let's check out how exactly they form in the first place.

 

Your elastin and collagen are proteins that give your skin its structure, bounciness and firmness. But when they break down; due to skin damage or aging - your skin will start to lose its shape, and won't bounce back like it once did.

 

Ultimately, this leads to several fine lines and wrinkles of various kinds showing up including these:

 

  • Superficial lines - Superficial lines are very fine lines that you're able to improve easily with the right anti-aging skincare products.

 

  • Dynamic lines - Dynamic lines are formed through laughter, and are usually found at the corner of your eyes or mouth. They occur from repeated facial expressions, like smiling - but won't be as noticeable when your face is relaxed.

 

  • Static wrinkles - Finally, static wrinkles are what lie deep in the dermal layer of your skin, and are visible even when your face is relaxed. A good example of static wrinkles is under eye and forehead wrinkles.

 

Now that we understand the types of wrinkles we're dealing with; it's time to debunk the myths!

 

6 Myths About Wrinkles

Wrinkles are Inevitable 

 

Myth 1 - Wrinkles are inevitable

 

WRONG! These days we have more choices than ever when it comes to preventing wrinkles through anti-aging products and treatments, so don't let this myth stop you from doing everything possible for younger-looking skin.

 

Myth 2 - Anti-aging products work immediately

 

If you apply under-eye cream before you go to bed and hope to see your wrinkles disappear by morning, you're going to be in for a different kind of wake-up call.

 

Let's face it; we know that instant gratification may be a pipe dream we all harbor but patience is the key to success when it comes to helping to prevent wrinkles through skincare techniques.

 

This is particularly true when you're examining an anti-aging skincare product for the first time or shifting over to a new formula.

 

Myth 3 - You need to moisturize every day for wrinkle prevention

 

It's so important to give your skin some love through moisture, but it doesn't necessarily prevent wrinkles from forming. However, it may make them a little less obvious.

 

Moisturizer, along with sunscreen that boasts a high SPF, is one of the most important skincare products that everybody should use daily. However, more often than not, it's misrepresented as a way to prevent wrinkles.

 

Applying moisturizer traps the water inside your skin, which will keep it both hydrated and plumped. Sure enough, this can make your wrinkles less visible, but it won't prevent them from forming on your face in the first place.

 

Myth 4 - If you don't wear sunscreen, you'll get wrinkles faster

 

Sunscreens are designed to protect your skin from the sun, and filter out harmful UV rays. They will always be the first and best line of defense against premature aging from the sun, but not all of them can be considered anti-aging.

 

In general, sunscreens are able to prevent three types of damage from UV rays:

  1. Sunburn
  2. Skin cancer
  3. Premature aging

 

Whether the sunscreen you choose will help you avoid wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of premature aging skin will all depend on the type of UV rays they block.

 

Myth 5 - Oily skin is a natural protector against wrinkles

 

Another common myth about wrinkles - just because you have oily skin, doesn't mean that it won't wrinkle. Collagen is what's responsible for keeping your skin supple, tight, and firm. And it may be true that those with higher levels of testosterone tend to have oiler, thicker skin, but the amount of oil produced within the skin is unrelated to how much collagen production occurs.

 

With this in mind, it's crucial that you create an oil-balancing skincare routine, as this is the best way to both effectively and proactively address concerns of premature aging.

 

Myth 6 - Once you start getting wrinkles, there's no going back

 

Last but not least, this common myth about wrinkles can often stop people from taking action. If you think that it's too late to prevent wrinkles just because you already have them, think again.

 

There are so many ways you're able to rejuvenate your skin by minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Not only do you have plenty of skincare routines, creams, soaps, and oils, but you also have procedures like Fraxel laser, injectables such as Botox and micro-needling. Taking the right action can help your skin look and feel smooth, youthful, and radiant for years to come.

 

Final Thoughts

 

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging.

We've shared six common myths about wrinkles that need busting so that you feel confident knowing what's true and what isn't!
