Different Types of Wrinkles & Lines:
Celebrities Who Have Them & Best Treatments for Them
Though we do it unconsciously, most of the time we evaluate other people’s ages by observing the subtle appearance of their faces. And one of the most important factors that allows humans to estimate another person’s age are the fine lines and wrinkles that appear on their face.
