The most obvious signs of ageing on a woman’s face are lines and wrinkles. For most women, these lines appear on five common areas and not the entire face, but it’s enough to age a person’s face by five, or even 10 years older, when they appear.
Click through the gallery below to find out which are the top five areas where lines appear on your face as you age, that you should be most concerned with:
Worry lines appear on the forehead when you make the same expressions like frowning repeatedly. These lines start off as fine lines when you are younger but the lines become more recessed and pronounced as you age and when you keep repeating the same expression. Worry lines can be reduced by aesthetic procedures but beauty products with skin-smoothing properties can help lessen its appearance too.
Like worry lines, frown lines occur when you keep frowning or if you squint often to look at something. These lines appear between your brows and eyes, and can become deeper over time as you continuously frown and when your skin starts to lose it’s elastin and collagen. Like worry lines, frown lines give you a severe expression all the time and can make a person look older that they really are.
Wrinkles around the eyes, especially those formed at the corners which are commonly referred to as crow’s feet, are the hardest to avoid as we age. Due to the thinner skin around the eyes, fine lines and wrinkles form easily around the eye area, exacerbated by facial expressions like laughing and frowning. If you keep late nights and do not get enough sleep each day, it can cause more wrinkles around the eyes.
Nasolabial folds are the two folds which run down both sides of the nose down towards the corners of the mouth. They are also commonly referred to as “smile lines” or “laugh lines” because the folds occur when we smile or laugh. As we age, the folds become deeper and their length grows longer, creating an ageing visage.
The lines which form down the sides of the mouth are known as “marionette lines”. Not only are marionette lines unsightly and can make you look older, but they give the impression that you are perpetually frowning which is not a good look. Marionette lines normally appear on older women, but they can start appearing on the face from the age of 25 on some women.
