A broad-spectrum sunscreen helps protect your skin from both UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays.

What is the difference between a wrinkle and a fine line?

A wrinkle is defined as a crease or furrow in the skin caused by the natural process of aging, by excessive exposure to the sun's damaging rays, or environmental insults.

However, a fine line (or “expression line“) is a small wrinkle that may be caused by the contraction of facial muscles during smiling or frowning. When you stretch the skin of a fine line, the lines are barely visible. When these muscles contract, they pull the skin in, causing a line. And the muscles controlling frown lines between the brows may contract even when the muscle is resting, causing deep lines — which could result in the start of a wrinkle.

What causes razor bumps or ingrown hairs ?

Hair grows from follicles in the skin. When shaved, the tip of the hair is left with a sharp point. As curly hair grows, this sharp point may emerge from the hair follicle, curve back and pierce the skin. The body reacts to and treats these ingrown hairs just as it would a splinter or other foreign body, producing a pimple-like bump.
Razor bumps can also form when shaving too close causes whiskers to be clipped off below the skin surface. This allows hair to penetrate the side of the hair follicle instead of following its normal path to the skin's surface. This occurs more frequently when the hair follicle is curved. Once razor bumps are formed, continual shaving cuts and slices existing bumps, resulting in a painful and uneven shave and possible worsening of the condition.

What can you do to minimize razor bumps when you shave ?

Try shaving every other day, and don't shave too closely. Choosing a razor specially made for razor bumps is also helpful.
