Summary about Wrinkles Due To Aging

One of the most prominent signs of aging is changes in the skin. Your skin naturally becomes less elastic and more brittle as you age. As natural oil production declines, causing your skin becomes dry and wrinkled. The fat in the underneath layers of your skin starts to go. This results in drooping, loose skin with more visible wrinkles and cracks. Collagen production reduces as we age, causing the skin to lose elasticity.
These may begin to develop around the age of 30, although everyone ages differently, and how we age is influenced by our genetics and lifestyle.


The meaning of wrinkle in Urdu is 'Shikan'.
