The Reason We Wrinkle
Dr. Schultz uses an analogy to explain wrinkles: Imagine that your skin is like jello with fruit in it. The fruit is your collagen and the jello is the semi-liquid matrix that your collagen sits in. If there is plenty of both, then the mold is round and firm. But if you remove any of either part, then the jello loses mass and starts to fall or sag.
The Loss of Collagen
The bad news is that we start losing both collagen and the semi-liquid matrix in our 20s. While people in their 20s may not have any visible wrinkles, the process has already begun. However, there is good news. Use an anti-aging cream in your 20s to start the production of both collagen and the semi-liquid matrix. This preventative measure could delay the onset of wrinkles by 5-10 years!
