Mimic wrinkles – the characteristic hollows in the skin around the eyes, mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead – are a consequence of the constant activity of facial muscles. The more expressive your face is, the faster facial wrinkles appear. How exactly do they form? They’re the result of repeated movement of the same muscles-often a struggle for people who smoke or laugh a lot. At first the fine lines disappear when the muscles are relaxed – over time they become fixed and deepen and we look tired and sad.
