Wrinkles are visible creases in the skin. Most wrinkles are associated with ageing changes in skin and ageing of the skin and skin structures ( hair and nails) is a natural process.
Frequent exposure to sunshine results in premature skin wrinkling and increased pigmentation ( liver spots ). It also increase the likelihood of skin cancer. Exposure to cigarette smoke is another environmental factor that increases wrinkling of the skin. Nothing can be done to decrease the rate of skin ageing, but many environmental factors will increase the rate.
