A concern that is often associated with the ageing process, sagging skin is a condition that can be visible on the face and body, and is a result of a decline in collagen and elastin or can be attributed to weight loss.
Smooth skin that has the ability to bounce back, is a trait possessed by a more youthful complexion, as the skin contains healthy amounts of collagen and elastin contained within its structure.
As we get older the levels of these two components begin to decrease and their production becomes less efficient, giving way to skin that becomes weakened and less supported – thus it begins to sag.
The natural process of ageing is something that everyone will experience, and the presenting conditions can differ from one person to another, to varying degrees. As part of this process, sagging skin can be a factor determined by our individual genetics, with lifestyle choices and weight loss being other influences to consider.
Overexposure to the sun (and its harmful UV rays), smoking, alcohol consumption and poor diet, can all play a part in accelerating the rate at which ageing effects take hold. With this in mind, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, ensuring good levels of hydration and a careful skincare regime (including the daily use of a suitable SPF) can help to uphold healthy, tight skin.
