In your youth, you’ve enough skin elasticity to get it back to make the folds disappear when you stop smiling.

According to the report published in Daily Mail, the harmful Sun rays are responsible for the 80% of skin wrinkles. The UV rays of the sun deep penetrate the skin and affect the skin’s connective tissue, thereby triggering the aging process. You must apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before you step out in the sun, even if you have to drive, because car windscreen not provides enough protection.
