Fine lines and wrinkles can start appearing from your 20s, especially if you have had significant sun exposure. The most common areas to first notice wrinkles are the horizontal lines on the forehead, the vertical lines between your eyebrows in the glabella area and those around your eyes.You may also start noticing wrinkles around your lower face and cheek area and increasing prominence of the nose to mouth lines.
Why does it happen?
One of the biggest accelerators for wrinkles is UV damage. The most helpful thing you can do is to prevent wrinkles by ensuring you wear sunscreen daily and stay away from direct sunlight. Even if you already have wrinkles, this will slow down the ageing process. Lighter skin types have less inbuilt protection from UV damage in the form of melanin so are more prone to getting wrinkles at an earlier age. UV damage not only causes the fine lines on your upper face; it also contributes to volume loss and change in texture/ loss of elasticity of the skin.
