Dr Gulhima Arora, Senior Consultant Dermatologist, Mehektagul Dermaclinic said, “Wrinkles can be associated with external as well as internal causes. External causes include UV damage through skin exposure, pollution, dehydration, and smoking whereas internal causes include ageing and cumulative muscle contraction. To avoid wrinkles, avoid smoking, follow proper skincare like the use of sunscreen and moisturiser. Other ways are botox, fillers, skin booster, and laser resurfacing.”
