Skin Laxity

Skin naturally becomes loose as an individual ages. But apart from aging, skin laxity can also result from a number of factors. Sagging skin can detract from an individual’s appearance or make an individual appear older than they really are.

 
 

What Causes It?

The skin loses two important proteins during the ageing process. These proteins are collagen, nicknamed the “building blocks” of the skin, and elastin, responsible for the skin’s elasticity.

Other factors can further influence skin laxity, such as:

  • Exposure to the sun

  • Free radicals, damaged oxygen molecules

  • Exposure to toxins and pollutants

  • Lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking

  • A poor diet, especially one with excessive sugar

 
 

What You Can Do

While the aging process cannot be reversed, an individual can deal with extrinsic aging by making necessary lifestyle changes. These include avoiding unnecessary sun exposure, cutting down on smoking and drinking, and eating a balanced diet that contains antioxidants, which combat free radicals. Anti-aging products that contain retinoids and Vitamin C can help lessen wrinkles as well.
