For both men and women, fine lines and wrinkles begin forming around the eyes, forehead and mouth area, usually in our late 20s or early 30s. As the skin cells get older, it loses its elasticity creating permanent creases and furrows in the skin. However, the ageing process is different for each individual and can be affected by genetic tendencies, underlying dermatological problems, and environmental aggressors like cold temperatures, wind and UV damage.
With a reliable skin care routine featuring Boniik’s best-selling Korean wrinkle cream and anti-wrinkle products, you can reclaim your skin’s natural plumpness, slow down the natural ageing and keep further signs of ageing like dark spots and uneven skin tone at bay.
Types of Lines, Wrinkles & Their Causes
Lines and wrinkles on our face are either “static” or “dynamic”. Dynamic lines are formed by the regular movement of facial muscles. Meanwhile, static lines are caused by a combination of environmental and biological factors including ageing, sun damage and weight loss.
The most common dynamic lines you’ll obtain include ‘worry’ or ‘frown’ lines- located on the forehead and between the eyebrows. ‘Crow's feet’ are the wrinkles embedded at the side of the eyes. ‘Laughter’ and ‘smile’ lines as their name suggests form around the corners of the mouth.
Wrinkles aren’t always symmetrical depending on the movements of your facial muscles.
While ageing and muscle movement are the main contributors, there are a number of other causes that can create pesky lines and wrinkles. Other causes include:
- Sun exposure - Constant sun exposure and UV light breaks down the healthy connective tissue supporting your skin’s cell structure.
- Smoking - Smoking is a documented cause of premature ageing due to the damaging effects of 3800 different chemical components on healthy tissue, including the skin.
- Gravity - Gravity isn’t something that we can avoid. There’s no denying that gravity plays a role in causing our skin to droop and sag!
- Hereditary - Unfortunately some ethnicities and families tend to wrinkle more.
Shopping for Anti-Wrinkle Products
When it comes to fine line skin care, be prepared to switch up your daily routine and scroll through those brands. Luckily, Boniik isn’t short of hydrating Korean wrinkle creams for day and night time use, skin-renewing cleansers and collagen enriching serums to buff away the fine lines and wrinkles.
No need to waste your money on invasive anti-ageing treatments like anti-wrinkle injections and fractional RF skin tightening.
Whatever your skin care concern, we have a variety of topical (and less painful-sounding) skin care brands and makeup products formulated to lessen and prevent signs of ageing, and lift away the years for the long-term.
Skin care ingredients to look out for:
Retinoids - Retinoids feature vitamin A compounds such as retinoic acid and retinol, proven skin care treatments used topically to repair sun-damaged skin, and fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
Grape Seed Extract - This natural anti-inflammatory promotes collagen production and reclaims the skin’s natural plumpness.
Vitamin C - Kiwi fruit, berries and citrus fruits are rich in vitamin C, a potent antioxidant. Whether the fruits are infused in a mask or adding them into a smoothie, vitamin C rids the skin from free radicals- oxygen molecules that break down skin cells and cause wrinkles. Vitamin C is also a popular ingredient to combat wrinkles caused by sun exposure.
Peptides - These skin regenerating molecules occur naturally in living organisms. Peptides are responsible for stimulating collagen production, and improving the skin’s natural texture.
Natural Tea Extracts - It can be Oolong tea, green tea or black tea, the following natural ingredient features antioxidising properties to soothe sensitive skin.
Niacinamide - This potent antioxidant is related to vitamin B-3. This hydrating ingredient is often found in anti-ageing moisturisers to reduce water loss in the skin, and boost natural skin elasticity.
