Skincare Myth: Dry Skin causes Wrinkles.

This statement is false. The truth behind wrinkles lies in the loss of collagen and elastin which gives our skin firmness. As we age, production of new skin tissue and cells are slower. When those skin cells are damaged, it can cause wrinkles and fine lines. Children can have dry skin and not have wrinkles, so therefore dry skin does not cause wrinkles, it just makes wrinkles look worse.

Dr. Wright’s Tip
The main factor that causes wrinkles is sun damage, as well as muscle movement, estrogen loss and fat depletion. There is a lot of misinformation and confusion that dry skin is the cause of wrinkles. You may notice that people with oily skin seem to have less wrinkles and fine lines. Skin that is dry or dehydrated can make any amount of wrinkling or flaws look more exaggerated. But applying moisturizer will cause wrinkles to look less apparent and can help skin look and act younger, but you still need ingredients that will help repair. The key for diminishing wrinkles is cellular repair, restoring lost collagen and firming the skin. Try our PREVIA REPLENISH AND REBUILD MOISTURIZER which is perfect for softening fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, as an added bonus, it will help firm the skin and remodel the underlying layer for younger looking skin in minutes.
