Skin that has lost its spring isn’t the result of just one cause. Several factors are likely responsible for making your once supple skin appear tired and droopy.
The most common cause of sagging skin is ageing. As you age, your skin loses the collagen and elastin, your skin’s supportive connective tissue, that make it look soft, plump and youthful. In addition, facial muscles can weaken with age, which takes a toll too.
Sun exposure is another reason for skin losing its elasticity.
Last but not least, weight loss, especially the loss of large amounts of weight over a short period of time, can cause skin to sag.
Despite all of these skin-sabotaging factors, you are not necessarily stuck with skin that’s gone slack.
