Skin Tightening Home Remedies
With age, your skin’s structural tenacity reduces because of the declining elastin and collagen production. Uneven distribution or loss of facial fat also has a role to play here. As you grow older your facial muscles also become weaker. Skin aging is inevitable whether you like it or not. Wrinkles are another problem that you have to deal with as you grow old. But there are many simple remedies that you can do to slow down the aging process.
It’s not only the sagging but your skin will also develop fine lines and wrinkles particularly on your face. Due to this reason, your skin looks more translucent and paler and it will also become more sensitive.
In this post, we’ll discuss some of the remedies that you can do at your home and successfully hold or reverse the time advancement. These remedies are tried and tested for many years from women all over the world.
But first, let’s have a look at some of the primary causes of skin aging.
What Are The Causes of Skin Aging?
Skin is the largest of all our body organs because it covers our entire body. It needs two very important proteins (elastin and collagen) for staying wrinkle-free, firm and smooth. These proteins tend to break apart because of the years of exposure to sunlight, environmental toxins or various other age or lifestyle-related elements.
Some of the causes are listed as follows:
- Wrinkles are bound to appear with the passage of time. The reason behind the occurrence of wrinkles is the intrinsic structural variations that cause the skin to become drier and thinner as you age.
- Your skin’s ability to shed dead skin cells reduces as you grow old. This delayed turnover of cells reduces the process of natural rejuvenation.
- Aging also influences and gradually weakens the connective tissues that are important in supporting your bones and cartilage. This causes the surrounding skin to drop down loose.
- Your muscles that are holding your skin tightly also wear out with age. For this reason, the fat tends to accumulate in the empty space and this heavily contributes to saggy skin.
- The clumping, shifting or decrease in the facial fat that occurs due to weight loss or age also have a role to play in skin sagging.
- Smoking either passively or actively will also harmfully affect your skin’s overall health. The smoke caused by tobacco comes with some toxins that dry out your skin and hamper the elasticity and cause your skin to droop.
- Genetic reasons are always there as well. Some people tend to develop saggy skin due to their genetic construction specifically in some body areas.
- One of the strongest reasons behind sagging skin is improper fluid intake. With age, your skin tends to lose its elasticity and moisture. For this reason, you have to supplement it by drinking a lot of water for aiding the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
