wrinkles and its remedies
Wrinkles - causes and home remedy
The epidermal cells become thinner as age advances .They also
lose their stickiness. This change in epidermal cells allows the
moisture to escape instead of retaining it back causing dryness of
skin. As we get old the epidermal cells start dividing slowly
and the rate of repairing process also retards. Thus thinning of
leads to wrinkles
Changes in dermis:
The collagen fiber production reduces.
The elastin fibers wear out.
The production of sebum from sebaceous glands decreases.
there will be a decrease in number of sweat glands.
The supply of nutrients also decreases.
Changes in subcutaneous tissues.
The fat cells get smaller with age.
All these changes in three layers of skin lead to wrinkles and sagging.
