While aging is inevitable, the visible signs of aging don’t have to be. We all know the usual suspects: crow’s feet and laugh lines, subtle lines and deeper lines. But did you know that there are five categories of wrinkles? From fine lines to more prominent wrinkles, here are the different types of wrinkles that can appear as you age – and how to use them Eminence Organics to minimize their appearance.
If you1. Expression lines
Unlike the muscles in the rest of the body (which are connected to our bones), the facial muscles are attached to our skin tissue (Byrdie). When we smile or frown, the muscles under the skin contract and expand, causing temporary wrinkles and lines of expression. As we repeat these expressions over time, the wrinkles deepen and become more permanent features. They form fine lines between our brows, crow’s feet in the outer corners of our eyes, and laugh lines around our mouth. While expression lines certainly add character, we appreciate a desire to plump their looks. We recommend adding Eminence Organics Hibiscus Instant Line Filler to your daily skincare routine – and taking it with you for touch ups on the go – to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in minutes.
2. Elastic folds
Basking in the sun may seem harmless in our younger years, but this dangerous past time can devastate our skin. UV rays damage collagen fibers (the protein that gives the skin its structure) and elastin (the protein that helps the skin recover), contributing to the appearance of tiny wrinkles on the cheeks, upper lip and neck (The New York Times). NewBeauty suggests incorporating exfoliating scrubs into your skin regimen to combat the appearance of those annoying wrinkles. The award-winning Eminence Firm Skin Acai Peeling Peeling works twice to moisturize the skin deeply and visibly and to achieve a more youthful appearance.
3. Gravitational folds
Do you have sagging skin problems? If so, you are not alone. With age, gravity takes its course and the tissue that gives our skin its elasticity gradually empties. The result: skin that appears to be wrinkling and hanging. In combination with a loose-looking skin along the jaw, these gravitational folds can cause a “wobbling effect” in the neck area (Livestrong). Fortunately, our Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream is your skin care savior. The natural active ingredients of this revitalizing treatment give sagging skin an immediate boost and ensure a smoother, firmer appearance.
4. Dry wrinkles
As we get older, the epidermal glands, which are responsible for secreting oil, begin to shrink (The New York Times). Without the protective layer of oil, the skin loses its ability to stay hydrated and takes on a dry, crepe texture that forms fine parallel lines on the forehead and décolleté. To replenish the moisture in your skin, we recommend adding our strawberry-rhubarb mask to your weekly skin care routine. This delicious odor treatment plumps and soothes dehydrated skin for a rich, glowing complexion.
5. Compression lines
Compression lines are the newest category of wrinkles to be discovered. After a deep night’s sleep, these tiny wrinkles appear on the face, neck, and chest and are caused by pressing your face against your pillow while you sleep (Byrdie). While these ridges often go away during the day, if you don’t change your sleeping habits, they can stay long term. We recommend that you not only sleep on your back, but also apply Eminence Organics’ best-selling Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream for the face and neck before bed. This extremely rich moisturizer leaves skin looking firmer, smoother and more youthful in the morning.
