Home Remedies for Wrinkles that really work
Wrinkles normally appear as a sign of aging, but their manifestations can be reduced. Many people are proud of their wrinkles and see them as a sign of long and happy life. However, others donвЂ™t really like to see their sagging skin in the mirror. If you are concerned about your wrinkles continue reading and see how to naturally reduce wrinkles. Wrinkles appear as a consequence of the change of collagen- a protein which represents the skin fibers. The young skin tissue contains elastic collagenous fibers or soluble collagen, which has the properties to soak moisture and swell. This continuing process of soaking and swelling is responsible for the glowing and soft young skin. However, if the skin is exposed to sun, smoke, gradual aging and the effects of free radicals, oxidative skin damage may happen. This can cause a development of insoluble collagen, which is not elastic, doesnвЂ™t soak moisture and doesnвЂ™t swell. If the skin loses its elasticity and moisture, creases or wrinkles may appear. They usually appear on the parts of your skin that are always exposed to sun, the face and the neck.
