Introducing the causes and types of wrinkles!

Wrinkles deepen with age. Did you know that wrinkles are not only caused by aging, but also by UV rays, facial habits, and other factors? By eliminating the causes of wrinkles, you can make your skin look younger than its actual age. Let's take a closer look at the causes and types of wrinkles and how to prevent them.

What are the causes of wrinkles?

Wrinkles are caused by the following factors.

Common causes of wrinkles

First, let's take a look at the common causes of all wrinkles.

Loss of skin elasticity due to aging
As we age, collagen and elastin, the elastic components of the skin, decrease, causing the skin to sag. When the skin sags, it becomes wrinkled as the skin pulls back.

Dryness due to low temperature and humidity
In an environment with low temperature and humidity, the skin tends to lose moisture and become dry. The dryness disrupts the texture of the skin, resulting in fine wrinkles.

UV damage
Ultraviolet rays not only dry out the skin, but also cause a decrease in collagen and elastin. This will cause both wrinkles due to sagging and wrinkles due to dryness. If you work in the hot sun or go outside frequently, it is important to take adequate UV protection.

The accumulation of UV damage over the years can result in the formation of many deep wrinkles and fine lines.

Facial habits
Wrinkles begin to form due to dryness of the skin, and the combination of facial habits causes deep wrinkles and fine lines to form. If you notice that you have wrinkles between your eyebrows, or if you smile a lot, you are likely to have wrinkles caused by your facial habits.

Causes of wrinkles by location

Let's take a closer look at the causes of wrinkles by region.

Under the eyes
The skin around the eyes is thin and has little sebum, so it tends to dry out. Rubbing hard with cleansing cloths accelerates the drying process and causes fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, prolonged use of a computer or smartphone can tire the eyes, which in turn reduces blood circulation and skin metabolism, making it easier for wrinkles to form.

The forehead is an area that is easily affected by UV rays and dryness. It is also easy to remove too much sebum with oil-absorbent film or tissues because of the shine caused by sebum. The lack of sebum causes the forehead to dry out, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. If you have a habit of moving your forehead up and down, you may also be prone to fine lines and wrinkles.

Between the eyebrows
Like the forehead, the area between the eyebrows is prone to wrinkles caused by facial expressions, dryness, and UV rays. Many people tend to wrinkle their brows when they are thinking. The accumulation of daily habits creates deep wrinkles that cannot be easily erased.

The skin on the neck is thinner and dries out more easily than on the face. When you sweat, the moisture on the surface of the skin is lost, accelerating the drying process. In addition, looking down for a long period of time can cause wrinkles to appear.

Corner of the eyes
The outer corners of the eyes have thin skin, just like the area under the eyes. Scrubbing with cleansing cloths can dry it out. Another cause is a decrease in metabolism due to prolonged use of computers and smartphones.

What are the different types of wrinkles?

Let's take a closer look at the characteristics of each type of wrinkle.

  • Epidermal wrinkles: are composed of the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue in order from the surface. Epidermal wrinkles are wrinkles formed in the epidermis.
  • Dermal wrinkles: These are wrinkles that have deepened due to changes in the skin caused by aging and ultraviolet rays.
  • Facial wrinkles: Wrinkles that are caused by the habit of facial expression.
  • Dry wrinkles: Fine lines and wrinkles caused by the disruption of the skin's surface texture due to dryness.
  • UV wrinkles: Wrinkles caused by the decrease of collagen and elastin due to UV rays.

Wrinkles are divided into epidermal wrinkles and dermal wrinkles according to their depth. Wrinkles can also be divided into facial wrinkles, dry wrinkles, and UV wrinkles, depending on the cause.

What can you do to prevent wrinkles? .

Let's take a closer look at how to take care of wrinkles and how to prevent them.

Care to prevent wrinkles
In order to prevent wrinkles, it is important to follow the following care routine.

UV protection
In order to prevent UV wrinkles, it is important to use sunscreen, parasols, hats, and sunglasses to protect against UV rays. UV damage accumulates, so it is recommended to start as soon as possible.

Training of facial muscles
By training your facial muscles, you will be able to support your skin better.

(1) Switch between the "A" and "O" shapes every 30 seconds and repeat several times.
(2) Switch between the "u" and "i" shapes every 30 seconds, and repeat several times.

For the "a", open your mouth wide, and for the "o", open it as if you were creating a wide space in your mouth. The "u" should be squeezed and pushed forward more than the "o" shape. For the "I", pull your mouth to the left and right as if you were smiling with your teeth.

Facial Massage
Facial massages are treatments you can do with a practitioner or on your own. The technique involves stimulating pressure points on the face, neck, and shoulders. MIO2 Facial massager helps promote healthy skin while relaxing your facial muscles. It has a relaxing and rejuvenating effect, helping you look and feel better.

Use skin care products that contain wrinkle-fighting ingredients.
Use skin care products that contain ingredients that are effective against wrinkles. We recommend products that contain vitamin C derivatives to reduce the effects of UV rays, retinol to stimulate skin turnover and increase collagen, and hyaluronic acid for its high water retention capacity.

Avoid stress
Stress has a negative effect on the skin by disrupting the turnover cycle. Take time to enjoy your hobbies to relieve stress.

Care for wrinkles that already exist
For wrinkles that already exist, take the following measures.

Thoroughly moisturize
It is important to keep your skin thoroughly moisturized to prevent wrinkles from growing any further. Wrinkles that are temporarily caused by dryness can be improved by moisturizing.

Do not miss UV care
To prevent the accumulation of UV damage, use sunscreen, parasols, and sunglasses. Even when going out for short periods of time, it is important to take UV measures to thoroughly prevent UV damage.


The causes of wrinkles are various, such as UV rays, stress, and wrong skin care. Let's review skin care and lifestyle habits to avoid wrinkles. Wrinkles tend to increase with age, so if you have a lot of wrinkles, you may look older than your actual age. Start taking anti-wrinkle measures as soon as possible to make your skin look younger.
