Sagging skin and loss of definition can appear anywhere on the body and face, most common areas are the neck, arms and abdomen. One of the main causes of sagging skin is age. As we age, our skin tends to lose collagen and elastin, the supportive connective tissue that makes it look firm, plump and youthful.
This process can results in sagging skin around the face, neck and body. In addition to this, facial muscles can weaken with age and eventually cause a drop. Sun exposure can also reduce skin's elasticity. Finally, sudden weight loss, especially large amounts of weight over a short period of time, can also cause the skin to sag dramatically.
Practise facial massage
Facial massage brings blood to the skin's surface, giving you an instant glow. A gentle massage, helps to tone the underlying muscles and provides increased support for the top layers of your skin. This increased support serves to pull the skin tight and ultimately reduces the appearance of sagging skin.
Applying skincare on neck with upward strokes
So many people focus on the lifting effect that they want from the skincare they apply to their neck. That’s all well and good - but any folds or wrinkles actually open upwards. To make sure your wonder products are getting to where they need to be, start by applying them with downwards strokes. Then massage your neck upwards for that all-important lifting effect.
Use Serums with Active Ingredients
Serums containing vitamin A/Retinol deeply repair the lower layers of the skin to regenerate collagen and elastin, renew ageing cells and generate new healthy cells. Resulting in less visible fine lines, and plumped skin.
The skin under our eyes is very thin and delicate, therefore it can get damaged and wrinkled over time more so than the rest of our face. Also, with aging the tissues around your eyes, including some of the muscles supporting your eyelids, weaken. Normal fat that helps support the eyes can then move into the lower eyelids, causing the lids to appear puffy. Fluid also may accumulate in the space below your eyes, adding to the swelling.
Use a cool compress
Low temperatures enhance blood circulation, encouraging toxins drainage and boosting oxygen and nutrients to the eye area. As a result, metabolism of skin cell regrowth is enhanced, revealing a tightened, brightened and smoothed appearance.
When you don't get enough sleep, the body produces excess cortisol, a hormone that breaks down skin cells. Get enough rest, and you'll produce more HGH (human growth hormone), which helps skin remain thick, more "elastic," and less likely to wrinkle.
Invest in a good eye cream
Using an eye cream rich in Hyaluronic Acid will help to stimulate collagen and keep the skin plumped.
