The Ultimate Anti-Wrinkle Guide: An Inside Look at the Causes, Types and Solutions

Wrinkles are an inevitable ageing sign, but there are still ways to prevent and get rid of these creases and look younger than your age. This helpful blog reveals the secrets behind how wrinkles form, their types and the best strategies to stop them in their tracks. Read on to know more!

5 main causes of wrinkle

1/ Inadequate sun protection

We are often exposed to UV light in our daily lives. Different types of rays like UVA and UVB can penetrate the skin and accelerate the formation of free radicals in the body. This leads to reduced collagen in the dermis and glycation of elastic fibres, triggering wrinkles and even skin cancer.

2/ Smoking and drinking

Nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes accelerate collagen damage, resulting in thinner skin, elasticity loss and wrinkles. Binge drinking causes the generation of acetaldehyde during metabolism, leading to inflammatory responses, cell damage and hence skin ageing.

3/ Collagen loss

Collagen in our face acts as springs that give the skin support and elasticity. But sadly, our collagen loss speeds up and metabolism slows down after the age of 25. When the rate of collagen loss exceeds that of its production, the skin will lose elasticity and become loose and saggy, leading to wrinkles.

4/ Lazy skin care 

Some working women may be too tired to cleanse their face and care for their skin after a hectic day, but air pollution and foreign substances like dust can leave dirt on their skin, triggering acne, irritation and skin damage over time. Besides, if you neglect the use of toner or essence after cleansing, wrinkles will form more easily.

5/ Dehydrated skin

Dryness is the most common cause of wrinkles. The lack of moisture in the strata corneum speeds up collagen loss, the skin will then lose support and form fine lines. If left unattended, these fine lines will become irreversible deep wrinkles over time.

4 major types of wrinkles

1/ Under-eye wrinkles and crow's feet

Eye skin is the thinnest skin on your body, with only a thickness of 0.04 to 0.06 mm, making it extremely fragile. If you always rub your eyes, laugh, stay up late at night and neglect the skincare around your eyes, your eye skin will become prone to wrinkles such as crow’s feet and tear troughs.


2/ Forehead wrinkles and frown lines

If you often raise your eyebrows and look up, these movements will repeatedly stretch the forehead skin and form wrinkles. Similarly, frowning frequently leads to frown lines.


3/ Nasolabial folds and marionette lines

These two types are the most annoying wrinkles, yet the most common ones. Nasolabial folds are two creases extending from both sides of the nose, and can be divided into "sunken nasolabial folds" and "muscle-induced nasolabial folds". The former develops in individuals with high cheekbones or a prominent upper jaw; the latter affects those who often blink and blow their nose.


Marionette lines, also known as melomental folds, are creases extending from the corners of the mouth to the chin. They are caused by repetitive movement of the muscles around the corners of the mouth such as frequent laughing and overly opening the mouth.

4/ Cheek lines

Creases can also form between tear troughs and nasolabial folds, often due to dehydration caused by negligent skin care.



3 ways to smooth wrinkles

1/ Sun protection

Prolonged sun exposure triggers wrinkle formation, that’s why sun protection is the key to younger-looking skin. Apply sunscreen with SPF30 whether you’re indoors or outdoors to prevent damaging or tanning your skin from the sun and protect your skin cells.

2/ Skin moisturisation

Many skin problems are caused by dehydration. Be sure to apply hydrating and moisturising products after cleansing your face to replenish enough moisture, boosting skin metabolism and collagen production, hence keeping wrinkles at bay.


3/ Medical aesthetic treatments

Appropriate medical beauty treatments are essential to get rid of wrinkles, especially deep and obvious wrinkles on your face. Be sure to choose a reputed and large medical beauty centre since some small beauty clinics are not licensed and use old or even counterfeit devices. The safety and effectiveness of their treatments are not guaranteed.
