It has been quite awhile now since I’ve been doing my own readings regarding the things that cause wrinkles. And mind you, there are a lot of reasons why wrinkles appear. These readings then, led me to write about the primary cause of wrinkles and be able to answer the question: what cause wrinkles?
The most common answer I get out of the million results there are when I do a search on the causes of wrinkles is none other than- the sun! Yes, you read it right. Our skin is composed of collagen and elastin fibers. These two make up the supporting structure of the skin. Continue reading

The word stress is so popular nowadays and I’m sure that it has gained its popularity a long time ago also. It is so common that we hear it (literally from people’s mouths), see it and feel it all around. Stress is caused by problems but stress is a problem- carrier itself. But what problems does it carry?

Sugars are molecules that attach to protein fibers in our cell through a process that will certainly cause damage called glycation. The end product of the said process is known as AGEs (Advanced Glycation End Products). The more sugar we eat, the more AGEs are formed in our body. This will lead to the breaking down of collagen and elastin (protein fibers maintaining the firmness and elasticity in our body). Continue reading
