Although there isn’t much you can do to prevent the development of sagging skin, there are a few preventative measures that might be able slow down the process. It is important to protect your skin against damage from the sun by applying SPF daily. A healthy lifestyle and a well-balanced diet can play a big part in your skins overall health. Incorporating the right nutrients into your diet and avoiding extreme diets that result in rapid weight loss can also help in minimising sagging skin.
One of the most common causes of sagging skin is ageing. Unfortunately, as we age our skin naturally loses its strength and elasticity as our collagen levels gradually drop, resulting in sagging skin around the face, neck and body. As well as this, facial muscles can weaken with age, resulting in loose skin. Sun exposure is another reason for skin losing its elasticity. Over time, the sun’s powerful rays can damage skin cells which eventually can increase the effects of ageing. Apart from ageing and sun damage, weight loss, especially the loss of large amounts of weight over a short period of time can cause the skin to sag.
Anyone can be affected by sagging skin. However, it is more common with individuals who have gone through extreme weight loss or women post pregnancy.
