Sagging skin is a condition that can affect both the face and body, and a weakened skin structure is often found to be the main cause for developing this condition.
As we start to age, the body’s ability to produce effective levels of collagen and elastin in the skin begins to decline, leading to skin that loses its natural bounce. As a result the skin becomes loose and starts to sag.
The way in which we age can depend on both genetic and environmental factors, with certain lifestyle choices also playing their part. We may find that we follow a similar pattern of ageing to that of our parents, developing the same conditions to the same degree.
However exposure to the sun’s harmful rays, consuming a poor diet, alcohol and smoking can only speed up the process and exacerbate the visible concerns. Loose skin can also develop through significant weight loss. The skin may have been stretched over a prolonged period of time, affecting its ability to return to its original form.
Sagging skin on the face is usually most visible around the jawline, developing a condition known as jowls. When affected by these common complaints, a person can often feel they look older than they wish to, which can also contribute to a lack of self-confidence.
Many people try to pause the effects of ageing with their own skin care routines, using cosmetic creams and moisturisers that claim to plump up and firm the skin. Ensuring the skin is regularly cleansed and exfoliated can help to maintain a healthy condition, as well as remembering to apply an appropriate SPF everyday.
