What Causes Wrinkles?

All About Wrinkles

Q: What is a wrinkle?
A: Wrinkles, creases or expression lines are signs of aging skin. They are caused by both normal aging and premature damage which impact and weaken the underlying support structure of the skin, causing a loss in elasticity or the ability to bounce back.

Q: What causes wrinkles?
A: Intrinsic aging is the natural process that includes factors we cannot control. The skin's metabolism slows, causing less collagen production and weaker elastin. The development of new skin cells slows down and turns over less frequently. We lose body fat and muscle strength, and bones shrink in the facial region. Hormones also play an important role. Extrinsic aging is influenced by external factors that we can control. Sun exposure is the main contributor to premature aging, combined with other environmental factors such as pollution and smoking. In addition to natural gravity, our sleeping positions and repetitive facial movements also may play a role. Chronic sun exposure can lead to photoaging as well.

How Can I Target Wrinkles?

Your Questions Answered

Q: How can I target and get rid of lines and wrinkles in specific areas?
A: Use TimeWise® Targeted-Action® Line Reducer to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Other products can promise to "erase" them, but many of these products offer only temporary benefits that disappear the second you wash your face. TimeWise® Targeted-Action® Line Reducer offers both immediate and long-term benefits with continued use. Here’s how:

This highly effective product delivers visible benefits to the forehead and crow's-feet area, two places that are especially vulnerable to expression lines and wrinkles and often need extra help in fighting the signs of aging. But TimeWise® Targeted-Action® Line Reducer doesn't stop there. With continued use over time, it also delivers lasting benefits not only to the forehead and eye areas, but also to other areas of your face where lines and wrinkles have a tendency to "settle."

When they formulated this product, scientists at the Mary Kay Skin Care Laboratories looked for ingredients that would deliver visible benefits to very specific areas:

  • Light-reflecting microspheres act like thousands of tiny mirrors, deflecting light away from lines and wrinkles so they look softened and visually less pronounced.
  • Gliadin, a rich source of amino acids, invisibly "fills in" lines and wrinkles, firming and tightening skin without inhibiting facial expression.
  • Three extremely effective antioxidants – Pomegranate Extract and vitamins A and E – are derivatives that deliver benefits day after day by neutralizing free radicals that can cause premature aging of the skin, helping to strengthen skin's natural defenses against negative environmental effects.
 

Q: What else can I do to reduce wrinkles and fight the signs of aging?
A: Since we cannot prevent natural aging, it's important to focus on the factors where you can make a difference. First, practice a sun-safe lifestyle by avoiding deliberate tanning (including artificial booths), wearing protective clothing and using a product with a sunscreen year-round.

In addition, it's important to maintain the health of your skin. This includes using a scientifically based, age-fighting skin care program, such as the TimeWise® Miracle Set®, designed to improve the overall appearance of the skin. The TimeWise® Miracle Set® contains four products that focus on gentle exfoliation to slough off the outer dead skin cells, delivery of age fighting ingredients to help with the body's natural collagen production and the use of a powerful moisturizer to hydrate the skin.

The secret is in the application. Twist base of pen two or three clicks to release the product into the applicator. Apply formula directly to cleansed and moisturized skin, and then gently pat with your finger to ensure that product completely fills in each line. Over-patting or blending can reduce product effectiveness. Applying after moisturizer ensures the smoothest surface for makeup application. As with all Mary Kay® skin care products, the TimeWise® Targeted-Action® Line Reducer was specifically formulated to work beautifully with Mary Kay® concealers and foundations.

How It Works

The face has wrinkle-prone areas that are often hard to treat. The forehead and crow’s-feet area are two places that are especially vulnerable to expression lines and wrinkles and often need extra help in fighting the signs of aging. There also are other places on your face where lines and wrinkles have a tendency to “settle,” such as between the brows, from the nose to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and between the mouth and chin (marionette lines). That’s why our scientists looked for ingredients that would deliver visible benefits to very specific areas of the face:

  • Light-reflecting microspheres act like thousands of tiny mirrors, deflecting light away from lines and wrinkles so they look softened and visually less pronounced.
  • Gliadin, a rich source of amino acids, invisibly “fills in” lines and wrinkles, firming and tightening skin without inhibiting facial expression.
  • Three extremely effective antioxidants – pomegranate extract and vitamin A and E derivatives – deliver benefits day after day by neutralizing the free radicals that can cause premature aging of the skin, helping to strengthen skin’s natural defenses against negative environmental effects.

Key Ingredients

  • Nylon-12 and Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer deflect light away from lines and wrinkles so they look softened and visually less pronounced.
  • Gliadin (Triticum aestivum derivative) invisibly “fills in” lines and wrinkles, firming and tightening skin without inhibiting facial expression.
  • Vitamin A (Retinyl palmitate) derivate, and Vitamim E (Tocophyerl acetate) derivative and Pomegranate (Punica granatum) extract are antioxidants that neutralize free radicals that can cause premature aging of the skin, helping to strengthen skin’s natural defenses against negative environmental effects.
