A wrinkle, also known as a rhytide, is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes such as glycation, loss of body mass, or temporarily, as the result of prolonged immersion in water. Age wrinkling in the skin is promoted by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors.

Famous quotes containing the word wrinkle:

    I have, as when the sun doth light a storm,
    Buried this sigh in wrinkle of a smile;
    But sorrow that is couched in seeming gladness
    Is like that mirth fate turns to sudden sadness.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Shorten my days thou canst with sullen sorrow,
    And pluck nights from me, but not lend a morrow;
    Thou canst help time to furrow me with age,
    But stop no wrinkle in his pilgrimage.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
