How to deal with the 2 types of wrinkles

Wrinkles on the skin are divided into those produced by movement of the skin and underlying muscles, and those that are present when the skin of the face is at rest. Regimented use of moisturizers can minimize the appearance of fine lines in skin at rest that are caused by the accumulation of sun damage and dehydration.

The effects of moisturizers are two-fold: they help to prevent the skin from drying out and they lubricate the surface of the skin to give a smoother appearance. For aging skin, it's helpful to look for moisturizing products that contain ingredients such as antioxidants, exfoliants, vitamins and amino-peptides for added benefits.
