How skin thickness affects wrinkling ...

We are all thin-skinned…in certain areas! The thickness of our skin varies considerably, depending on its location and the role it plays: it is thinnest on our eyelids and thickest on the palms of our hands and soles of our feet. Thin-skinned areas tend to have less stores of collagen and fat, which make them more prone to wrinkling.

Furthermore, melanin (skin pigment) is the bodys best defense against the harmful effects of the sun, that is why those with darker complexions exhibit less signs of photodamage. Consequently, the degree of skin aging varies with each persons heredity and cumulative levels of sun exposure. Also, thicker and oilier skin areas tend to exhibit less wrinkles. The appearance of mature skin can be improved with the regular use of combination moisturizing products that contain a sunscreen and other beneficial ingredients. Well hydrated skin can diminish the appearance of fine lines and provide a more even texture to your complexion.
