How to prevent wrinkle formation 15 years earlier

As we approach our middle ages, we start worrying about wrinkles and fine lines. However, the process of wrinkle formation starts in our late 20’s and early 30’s inside the skin. If we know the science behind it, we can delay the process of wrinkle appearance by many years. Read here: What to know about wrinkles.

Our skin’s main layer, the dermis, is made up of collagen and elastin fibers. Collagen gives firmness to the skin, while elastin helps with its suppleness. As we age, our skin starts thinning out with collagen fibers breaking and elastin fibers becoming less elastic.

Vitamin C helps increase the production of collagen. It simultaneously controls elastin production to keep the balance between the two healthy. Taking 1000 mg of Vitamin C is a good way to prevent the weakening of the collagen and elastin scaffolding of the skin. If you do that long before the wrinkles are physically visible, say 15–25 years earlier, you can postpone the inevitable appearance by many years.
