They freshen breath and help protect teeth from decay. You might think that chewing gum is all about the benefits, right? But experts say it’s a good idea to keep in mind that chewing gum is also a way to… the appearance of new wrinkles

Ageing is inevitable. The appearance of age on our skin is a matter of time. But it’s good to know that sometimes, more or less consciously, we ourselves contribute to the appearance of new wrinkles. How? One of the most common is regular and frequent chewing of gum. Surprised?

Why does chewing gum cause wrinkles?

Why does this happen? Well, the answer to this question is quite simple. The thing is that the constant repetition of one facial expression leads to the formation of wrinkles. In the case of gum chewing, the creases on the complexion appear in the upper lip area. Among other things, this is due to the fact that certain muscles are stressed too much, and the tissues lose their elasticity. Experts also add that when we chew gum, our jaw muscles grow, which in effect makes us gain a more defined jaw as well, so we lose our feminine charm.

Does this mean you should immediately throw away all packs of gum and forget about this product once and for all? Not necessarily, but using it occasionally and only in exceptional situations (yes, those moments when you really can’t brush your teeth) will definitely prove to be a safer option for your beauty
