It was an unusually hot afternoon and I was feeling very thirsty. My skin was drying up, it was getting flaky and all from too much heat and I wanted to hydrate or freshen up. As I was passing by my neighbor’s house, I stopped to chat and ask for a glass of water. She gave me one and even told me that she noticed a few lines on my face. I was quite worried with the remarks and asked her “can dehydration cause wrinkles?”
The famous myth about drinking water and wrinkles; well, my neighbor was kind enough to explain to me the answer to my question.

The first side agrees that coffee does cause wrinkles. It is for the fact that coffee has a diuretic effect which can be a cause of cellular dehydration. As we all know, the very main reason why our skins wrinkle is because of dehydration. When our cells are dehydrated, it will shrink and eventually die. This will later on result to sagging of the skin and wrinkling. Continue reading
