The connection between the sun and our wrinkles

Contrary to what most people think, wrinkles are not really caused by stress. There are a lot of factors that leads to its development. One of the main reasons for the development of the lines on our face is the inability of our skin to store the protein and nutrients that it needs to stay youthful and healthy. The two most important protein needed by our skin to stay strong and elastic making it youthful and glowing are the elastin and collagen. As we age, and once our skin stops storing them that’s when our skin starts to become dry, hence, the development of fine and deep lines become evident.

In the earlier hours of the morning, between 6 AM to 8 AM, the Rays coming from the sun are essential to our health, it can be healthy for our skin as well, but between 9 AM to 4 PM, this is the time when it is not advisable to be exposed to the sun anymore as it can be very harmful to our skin.

There are simple things that we can do to prevent these things from happening. Since being exposed to the sun is something that is inevitable, we may use sun block to our face with high SPF level, we may also use lotions with added sun screen to our body, wear wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and use umbrella.
