Enokii Blog - Home remedies for wrinkles

Wrinkles are a reason for the lack of elastin and collagen in the skin. Excess exposure to the sun, smoking, inanimate facial expressions, sleeping position, and lack of sleep are some of the main causes of wrinkles. Consuming processed food, alcohol intake, pollution, excess caffeine intake, lack of exercise and sleep are some other contributors to aging.

With age, our skin starts showing signs of aging including fine lines, dark spots, wrinkles, and dryness. With age, your skin does not produce enough collagen and elastin that are responsible for keeping your skin firm and younger.
