The importance of hydration related to wrinkles

The aging process leads to marked changes in the fascial structures of the body.

Because of age we see wrinkles and creases in the surface. These phenomena are fortified by decrease in estrogen production (menopause), poor nutrition, harmful environmental factors, sunbathing, alcohol, smoking.

Very important to know is that inadequate hydration aggravates these phenomena.
