Skin wrinkles present a visible signs of aging. There are numerous cosmetic products and processes today that occasionally can “neutralize” them. But are you doing the right thing by reducing them?
Not always, but sometimes the wrinkles may be an indicator for serious problems.
Deep wrinkles can be a sign of poor bone density.
In one research made on 100 women aged between 40 and 50 years, scientists have found a connection between the depth of their wrinkles and the bone density. Probably, it is so because the bones and the skin have a common ingredient – collagen, which decreases with aging.
Wrinkles can also indicate that you consume too much sugar. Sugar binds to proteins in the body and produces complex substances that break down collagen and elastin, and that can lead to even more fine lines and wrinkles. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, try to replace it with fruit, especially oranges and mangoes.
An early-stage of heart disease
The diagonal wrinkles that appear on your ear lobe may be an early warning sign of ticker trouble. These diagonal wrinkles are also known as “Frank’s sign” and they were named after the scientist T. Sanderson Franco who discovered them in 1973. These wrinkles are caused by the collapse of tiny blood vessels to the ear lobe, and this is a reflection of changes in blood vessel around the heart.
Wrinkles also are caused by stress. When you’re stressed, you tend to furrow your brow, which over time can lead to permanent forehead wrinkles. The results can’t be seen only on the forehead, you’ll see them elsewhere on your face as well. This is because of the large amounts of the stress hormone cortisol, which degrades collagen in your skin.
High blood pressure
Women, who look younger than their years, tend to have lower blood pressure. It is also noticed that women and men who live longer, are less likely to have skin wrinkling on their hands.
