Sooner or later they end up showing up! Although the appearance of wrinkles on your face is inevitable over the years, it is important to know how to treat them to hide them and keep your skin healthy for as long as possible. Therefore, stay and discover everything you need to know about wrinkles in men!
What are facial wrinkles?
By definition, a wrinkle is the dip , line , or fold that forms in the top layer of our dermis ( epidermis ). It is, without a doubt, one of the first signs of aging that men usually present on their faces . (Especially when we reach 40 years …)
However, although sometimes they are superficial lines , many other times they become deeper depressions with a grayer color that can make our face look duller and sadder .
Why do wrinkles appear on the skin of men?
That a man has a wrinkled face can be due to different causes , among which are:
Age: as a result of the passing of the years , our skin usually suffers a great loss of elasticity , collagen and tone that leads to a loss of hydration and sebum . In this way, the skin loses moisture and necessary fat that helps it to be always hydrated. From the age of 40, more or less, the skin becomes more fragile and thinner in the face of external factors.
Environmental factors: exposure to UV rays or cold damage the connective tissue of the skin , thus accelerating the aging process . In this way, the support of the dermis is affected, causing earlier wrinkles .
Facial grimacing: Moving the facial muscles too often can lead to slow (but visible over time) deterioration in the inner layers of the skin , especially in specific areas such as the forehead , eyes , or mouth . (If you're a big frown like me, be careful from now on!)
Tobacco and alcohol: the consumption of this type of product affects the blood flow of the cells in charge of the epidermis and the production of collagen in the body , so wrinkles and aging will be noticeable on your skin before it is due.
Genetics: although until now you might think that genetics has nothing to do with the aging of your skin , the truth is that it is super important, since it determines the structure and texture of a person's skin .
What types of facial wrinkles do men have?
Static: they are those that appear on a person's face due to the loss of collagen and elasticity . Did you know that we have these wrinkles from birth? However, it is not until the age of 40, more or less, that they are marked on our face. To treat them you can try cosmetics that contain hyaluronic acid , as it will help smooth and fill in wrinkles , as well as provide hydration to your skin .
Dynamics: this type of facial folds appear on our face as a result of repetitive facial gestures . For this reason, they are also called expression wrinkles . Lines of this type begin to be visible on the face from the age of 25.
Gravitational: these wrinkles are what we commonly call “ facial flaccidity ”. That is, it is the accentuation of static wrinkles . For this reason, they can be considered natural folds of the skin that, sooner or later as a result of age , end up appearing in the epidermis .
How to remove wrinkles on a man's face?
Protect yourself from the sun: it is essential that, in addition to limiting the time your skin is exposed to the sun , you always use sunscreen with at least SPF15 (and every two hours if you are outdoors). Keep in mind that you should apply it to the most exposed areas , especially the face , neck or arms , for example. (It doesn't matter if it's winter or summer, this step in your facial routine should always be essential!)
Moisturizes the skin: as I explained before, with age the skin loses collagen and elastin (which tends to hydrate the skin naturally). Therefore, it is important that you replace this lack of hydration with a good
