Summary

Close up of older woman checking complexion in mirror

A wrinkle is a fold, a crack which appears on the skin from a certain age. This sign of ageing can be superficial or deep.

Wrinkles are different according to their position and the way in which they are formed.

The causes of their appearance are of internal origin (genetic, hormonal and stress factors) and external causes (the sun), consumption of alcohol or tobacco, unbalanced nutrition) or sedentary lifestyle.

Therefore, there are many types of wrinkles. Most of them even have their own name! ‘Lion’ wrinkles, crow’s feet, nasolabial fold… each have their own story and their appearance tells a bit of ours too!
