Tightening Sagging Skin Under the Chin
Why does our skin sag?
Over the years our skin begins to sag, it can be noticed at first around your nose and mouth. The process your skin undergoes when it begins to sag, can be caused by many things. Initially, there is a reduction in elastin and collagen under your skin, which can be caused by many external factors such as UV radiation. As we age we lose fat under our skin that contains elastin and collagen, this process usually begins around the cheeks and continues downwards towards your chin. Without large amounts of collagen and elastin, our skin begins to sag.
What can I do to prevent it?
This can be prevented by various different ingredients within your skincare as well as protection from UV rays. Retinol, also known as Vitamin A, works to promote your skin’s renewal and enhances collagen production. "Retinol has a multitude of benefits. It is able to enhance the production of collagen and stop it from being broken down. This leads to firmer, plumper skin with diminished fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol can also speed up the skin cell regeneration cycle, which encourages a smoother, more even complexion. Finally, retinol can stop the process which makes pigment in the skin, reducing hyper pigmentation for a bright and even skin tone. You should start to notice a difference after 4 weeks, but significant skin changes could take up to 3 months," says Daniel Issacs.
The sun is one of the biggest dangers to our skin. Protecting ourselves from it is the best way to prevent signs of ageing and sagging skin. This can be done by using a sunscreen regularly (even on cloudy days) and including antioxidants in your skincare. ‘More and more scientific studies are proving their effectiveness, not only in helping to reduce wrinkles and aging but also reducing inflammation, such as in rosacea, or even helping prevent skin cancer.’ says Dr. Patricia Farris, a leading dermatologist based in Louisiana. It has been known that antioxidants can be very helpful to protect your skin from UV radiation.
