Keeping skin firm: The 5 step process

November 07, 2020
Do you remember guests coming over to your house and playing with your cheeks during the holidays? Those were the days! We all wish we had the skin of our youth. 

Alongside wrinkles and fine lines on the face, droopy and dull skin is a concern that grows as we age. This loss of definition can happen anyplace on the body, however the most widely recognized territories are the face, neck, midsection, and arms. 

Sagging skin is brought about by a number of factors, including diminishing of the outer surface of the skin called epidermis and loss of collagen.. 

Today we discuss what causes skin to lose its firmness and how to keep skin firm. 

Why does the skin sag as we age? 

There are multiple reasons why skin sags as we age. Here are the most prominent ones 

Collagen loss

Found in bones, joints and tendons, collagen is one of the most widely found and important proteins in our body. The thickest layer of our skin, the dermis, maintains its structure with the help of collagen and keeps our skin looking youthful and firm. 

As age progresses, our body loses collagen and elastin, the other element that keeps our skin looking tight and young.

Weight loss and pregnancy 

You may have loose skin if you have lost a lot of weight. The reason this happens is because your skin expands when your body is in the fat stage. People who are overweight for a longer period of time have to face damaged skin collagen and elastin fibres. Your skin’s ability to retract back into its place is severely affected. This also happens when one is pregnant and their skin expands on their abdomen.

Being exposed to the sun and free radicals 

Years of sun exposure can lead to premature aging.

A study was done amongst women ranging from ages 30 to 78. It was found that UV exposure through sunlight can lead to 80% of visible aging signs like skin sagging, wrinkles and fine lines. This included vascular disorders as well. 

The science behind it says that over time, the UV rays break down skin’s elastin and even cause thinning of the epidermis. 

Other than the sun, our skin gets exposed to free radicals that are responsible for deteriorating collagen and elastin. Toxins, unhealthy food and pollutants all come together to cause fine lines and loss of skin elasticity.

One needs to be proactive when it comes to skincare regimen in order to keep their skin looking youthful. It requires efforts to keep the skin look healthy and feel best after a certain age. Though many people choose to go for cosmetic procedures to achieve healthy skin without signs of aging, there are more natural ways to reduce or delay wrinkles and fine lines while tightening the skin. 

Let’s discuss five easy steps you can incorporate into your lifestyle to enjoy a healthier skin
  •  Eating right - Eating a nutritious diet that includes lots of fruits and veggies will boost skin health will keep the skin firm and supple. A good example is pomegranate juice which contains elements that promote skin strength and elasticity. They are called selenium and anthocyanin and help reduce the toxin levels in your skin.
  • Having the right vitamins - To prevent sun damage and boost skin elasticity, it’s good to up your intake of vitamins. Vitamins A,B and E protect the skin from sun damage and keep it looking healthier, retaining its vitality. In-fact, Vitamin B improves skin hydration so much that it’s the most common element in skin creams.
  • Exercising Regularly - What’s the biggest advantage of exercising apart from maintaining weight? Regular exercise helps keep our skin firm by boosting blood circulation and toning our muscles, keeping the skin tighter and firmer. Common exercises like running, aerobics, squats, lunges, jumping and workouts with light weights are effective in toning the body. You can also watch videos of facial exercises to tone the muscles and skin on your face. 

  • Keeping yourself hydrated - This is a no brainer. One needs to drink 1-2 litres of water everyday to keep their skin hydrated. Hydrated skin glows naturally as it looks and feels tighter. This water recommendation varies with age, weight and activity level. Blocked pores in our skin lead to acne. Water flushes out toxins in our body that lead to these blocked pores.
