Sagging skin the condition in which your skin looks loose. It does not remain tight as in the young age. It’s a normal part of aging and affects everyone with time.
The skin loses its elasticity and it sags. While aging is the chief cause of skin sagging, there are other reasons as well.
What causes sagging skin?
- Aging: It is the center cause of skin sagging.
- Loss of collagen: As the body loses collagen, it leads to skin sagging.
- Breaking down of tissues: As we age, the skin tissues break down inside the body. The result is in the form of sagging skin.
- Other causes: On other causes list, we can blame genetics, weight changes, and sun damage.
Sagging skin: who are at the risk?
When it comes to the people at the risk of skin sagging, you can make a list that would include:
- Aged person: People in mid-ages often face skin sagging. So, if you are above thirty, you are at risk!
- Outdoor people: Other than aging, exposure to the sun is a chief cause that propels premature skin sagging in people. Those persons who have to spend time in outdoors, are often at the risk of skin sagging.
- Genetics: Though it’s sure that your skin will sag with time, genetics plays an important role in premature skin loosening. If your family has a member with sagged skin in early age, you too have the risk of getting affected!
Signs of sagging skin:
There are many signs that warn you about sagging skin. Some most notable of them are:
- Looseness in skin: Once you feel your skin loosening, you should be worried about sagging.
- Wrinkles: As soon as wrinkles appear on your skin, it starts sagging as well.
- Thin skin: Once your skin becomes thin, because of aging or any other reason, your skin starts sagging. So, thinning of skin can be taken as a sign of sagging.
Prevention of sagging skin:
While you cannot control your age, you can take certain precautions to avoid skin sagging as far as possible:
- Moisturize: Keep your skin moisturized. Moisturized skin does not get affected by skin problems as often as dry skin.
- Gentle touch: Yes, do not scrub your face often. Do not use harsh products to wash your face. Use gentle face washes and creams. Wash your face gently.
