What are the areas of the Face and Body that are most prone to sagging?
The loss of skin definition can occur in any part of the face and body. The most common face and body areas with loose skin are the following:
- Under-eye bags
The sagging of our skin is brought about by many factors: aging, diet choices, extreme weight loss or gain, and sun exposure. As we age, our skin loses collagen, thus losing its elasticity and thickness. With thinner skin, we are more exposed to sun damage as the sebaceous glands’ function to produce lipids is reduced. Saggy skin may come naturally with age, but we certainly don’t have to look the part!
There are ways and techniques to slow down the sagging process and restore that youthful appearance of your skin. Here are our best recommendations:
Regain Your Youthful Glow: 3 Ways to Tighten Saggy Body Skin
Although saggy skin is associated with significant weight loss, this doesn’t mean you should stop your weight loss journey, you may just need to make some changes with your workout routine. The trick to reduce loose skin and achieve a healthy, fit body at the same time is to continue building muscle mass through weight training exercises. “If excess fat distends the skin for a long time, the skin can lose some of its ability to shrink with weight loss. Replacing that lost fat with muscle mass can lessen the appearance of loose skin,” as stated by Healthline.
To restore that healthy, youthful glow, it is best to accompany your healthy lifestyle with the best skincare techniques and products that can help you get faster and more lasting results.
