Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. They occur most frequently in areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, back of the hands, and forearms.

In addition to sun exposure, premature aging of the skin is associated with smoking, heredity, and skin type (higher incidence among people with fair hair, blue eyes, and light skin). Read More...
