Aging. The one thing that everyone wants to avoid. Unfortunately, we can’t permanently stop aging, but we can definitely slow down the process with treatments and with the right products.
WHAT CAUSES WRINKLES?
There are a variety of factors that cause wrinkles, but the biggest one is the lack of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the two proteins that keep our skin looking plump and youthful. Sadly, starting at the age of 25, our bodies slow down their collagen and elastin production up until we no longer produce it at all. This causes our bodies to begin to lose volume and firmness, and then before you know it, you have fine lines and wrinkles!
Lack of collagen and elastin are only part of the problem. Something else that causes us to have fine lines and wrinkles is the sun. It’s ironic, given that the sun is what provides us with life, but it also provides us with wretched wrinkles. The sun has both UVA and UVB lights and when you’re constantly in the sun with no protection it can cause a lot of damage. Being exposed to the sun not only causes fine lines and wrinkles, but it also causes sunspots and hyperpigmentation.
HOW TO PREVENT WRINKLES
The best way to prevent wrinkles from forming is by protecting and taking care of your skin! If you haven’t done so, you need to add two crucial products to your skincare routine in order to effectively prevent and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The two products that you should be applying are SPF and an expression line treatment.

Clinical testing shows that within 7 days of twice-daily use, expression lines decrease in appearance an average of 20% in depth and 16% in length.
