Skin wrinkles are caused by aging, but other factors can increase the speed and/or severity of wrinkles such as sun damage, habitual facial expressions, skin type, heredity, smoking and poor hydration. Most wrinkles appear on parts of the body that get the most sun exposure such as the face, neck, back of hands and the forearms.
