How to keep skin firm?

Old age means getting to know yourself better, understanding and coming to terms with your place in the world, learning the lessons of humility, grace and wisdom that only the years of life can teach.

Aging also means changes in the body, especially in the face and skin.

It may take some adjusting to find a healthy approach to wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin. Ultimately, feeling good about aging is about perspective, not home remedies or clinical treatments.

Nothing can completely stop the clock, but there are prevention strategies and clinical solutions to strengthen the skin. In this article, we will discuss why skin sags and some ways to deal with sags.

Why the skin sags, what is the importance of collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It supports the structure of the skin and forms the connective tissue between muscles and bones.

Your body naturally produces collagen, but as you age, production of this important protein (collagen) decreases. As a result, your skin becomes less elastic and wrinkles begin to appear.

As the natural amount of collagen decreases, so does the natural amount of fat in the deeper layers of the skin. Unoccupied spaces are left under the layers of skin, causing the skin to sag or sag where it was previously firm.

Other lifestyle factors can cause wrinkles to appear earlier. If you're prone to wrinkles, it's usually genetics. Other factors that can contribute to early wrinkles include:

  • smoking
  • frequent exposure to ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays
  • extreme weight loss or gain
  • a diet high in processed foods

Home remedies

When you start reading about home remedies for sagging skin, you may find that most of the remedies are focused on prevention rather than getting rid of wrinkles. Clinical and in-office procedures are far more effective at truly restoring your skin's former appearance.

However, to avoid sagging skin, it is best to aim for a cumulative effect. Take care of your skin as a lifestyle, including quitting smoking and sun protection.
