About Loose, Sagging Skin
By Kendall Weatherman, Licensed Esthetician

Loose, sagging skin is primarily characterized by a loss of firmness or a decrease in the skin’s ability to spring back after being pinched or pulled. This loss of elasticity is commonly seen under the chin, along the jawline and on the neck and chest. Additional symptoms include a “crepey” texture, creases on either side of the mouth and hollowed cheeks and eyes. Despite the myth that only plastic surgery can correct this, there are solutions to help prevent and correct loose and sagging skin.

Loose, sagging skin occurs due to a loss of vital skin components due to aging, sun overexposure and other lifestyle factors. Elastin, which normally enables skin to snap back into place, gets damaged, stretches and begins to have less spring. Collagen, that normally provides support and strength to the skin, becomes damaged, hard and stiff and breaks down as well. This causes loss of volume in addition to lines and wrinkles. As we age, we lose fat and bone in our face, which also causes a loss of facial volume. Bones shrink away from the skin and facial muscles weaken which causes the skin overlying the cheeks to become loose and unable to withstand gravity.

Heredity plays a role here as fair-skinned people show more aging skin changes than those with darker skin as pigment provides protection against UV damage.

Weight loss and dehydration reduce plumpness and firmness and also make skin appear looser.

Free radicals, high sugar diets and foods browned through heating or cooking of sugars also contribute to collagen breakdown and loose, sagging skin.

To prevent and improve lack of elasticity choose products that contain marine collagen, marine elastin, and sorghum can dramatically repair, revitalize, firm and restore skin volume.

Consistently using the a sulfate free cleanser, alcohol free toner, serum and moisturizer morning and evening can help prevent and correct loose and sagging skin. Never go to bed without cleansing your face. Whether you wear makeup or not, environmental pollutants and dirt get on our skin throughout the day, which will be counterproductive to your anti-aging goals. Also, avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen, protective clothing, hat and sunglasses when outdoors.

Dietary changes can really help improve skin’s firmness. Limit consumption of processed and browned foods, sugar, and high fructose corn syrup and eat antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables containing vitamins A, C and cook meats low and slow (think crock pot versus the grill) for a youthful, taut complexion. Consult your physician and consider supplementing with a multivitamin, Vitamin B6 and other antioxidants to ward off free radicals. Drink plenty of water and avoid tobacco for optimal skin health as well. Schedule a series of the following Pevonia Botanica professional treatments for maximum firming benefits: Lumafirm Lift and Glow Treatments, Elasto-Firm, Pevoreclaim and a Lacto-Flora Peel.
