Messengers Of Serious Problems: What Do Wrinkles Say About Your Health?

Wrinkling of the skin is one of the visible signs of aging. Today you can (temporarily) “neutralize” wrinkles using different processes, but is it wise to do so?

Not always, because sometimes they can be indicators of serious problems.


Deep wrinkles can be a sign of poor bone density.

An examination in which 100 women between 40 and 50 years were included has been done. Scientists found a correlation between the depth of wrinkles and bone density. Probably, it is because bones and skin have a common ingredient -- collagen, which decreases with aging.


Wrinkles may also indicate that you consume too much sugar. Sugar binds to proteins in the body and produces complex substances that destroy collagen and elastin, leading to the formation of wrinkles. If you cannot live without sweets, we recommend fruits, especially oranges and mangoes.

Early phase of heart diseases

Diagonal wrinkle on the ear tassels can sometimes indicate an early stage of heart problems. This diagonal wrinkle is also known as Franc sign and is named after the scientist Sanderson T. Franco who discovered it in 1973. It occurs due to failure of the capillaries in the ear tassels, indicating a change of state of the blood core around the heart.


Wrinkles also occur due to stress. Those who are under stress and often frown have wrinkles on the forehead. The consequences of stress are not only visible on her forehead -- stress hormone which secretes heavier destroys collagen.

High blood pressure

Women who look young generally have low blood pressure. Also, women and men who live long have fewer wrinkles on the hands over his elbows.
