Causes of Skin Wrinkles

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of an individual’s ageing process. However, poor nutrition and an unhealthy lifestyle can also lead to premature ageing of the skin and early wrinkle formation.

Common Causes of Wrinkles

As we age, our skin becomes dry and thin, which can cause wrinkles on the forehead, face, hands and other parts of our body. However, nutritional blunders and unhealthy lifestyle habits can cause further deterioration of the skin, identical to that caused by natural ageing. Here are a few diet and lifestyle habits which could lead to premature wrinkles and skin ageing.

Inadequate Intake of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is essential for skin health. It not only keeps your skin plump and healthy but also prevents it from losing its elasticity. A lack of this essential vitamin can cause skin loses its elasticity and cause wrinkle formation. These wrinkles commonly appear around the eyes and lips, in the form of ‘laugh lines’, which are the main causes of wrinkles around the mouth.

Overexposure to Sun

The ultraviolet rays of the sun are another common factor which can damage skin and cause premature skin wrinkles to appear. Sunbathing is fortunately is not a major pass time here in India, but normal day to day activities like walking in the sun, can rob your skin of its moisture and leave it feeling dry and rough.


Smoking makes your skin more vulnerable to wrinkles. This is because it causes constriction of the arties, thus reducing oxygen & other nutrient delivery to the cells. Reduced nutrients & oxygenation to the skin cells causes them to dry up and leads to the formation of skin wrinkles.

Furthermore, every cigarette uses up at least 20mg of vitamin C. A chain smoker is therefore deficient in Vitamin C, which affects the connective tissue of the skin and makes it wrinkle and sag.
