What are laughter lines?
Since laughter is the best medicine, the lines it causes from years of giggling, smiling and even talking or pursing your lips or smoking can result in your skin to crease and add years to your appearance.
The main cause of lines and wrinkles is the natural ageing process which is due to decrease of collagen and elastin in the skin. The production of these proteins drop as we age however, use of an SPF to protect skin from harmful UV rays, avoid smoking, drinking plenty of water and follow a good skincare routine are number of ways to postpone this process.
What Causes laughter lines
As the name suggests, laughter lines appear on the parts of the face which naturally crease when we laugh and smile; usually around the eyes and the mouth. The main cause of laughter lines is a natural decrease in collagen and elastin in the skin. These proteins are responsible for our skin’s firmness and elasticity, but production drops as we age.
Most people begin to see the first signs of ageing skin in their 30s, but this can vary due to lifestyle and genetic factors. Deeper-set wrinkles like laughter lines and crow’s feet usually appear when we get into our 40s. Smoking and sun exposure speed the skin-ageing process up, so if you want to keep your skin looking younger for longer, avoid these.
