What is the sagging of skin on the face?
It is the loosening of the skin on the face after the loss of fat and the glands that used to keep it tight. The skin becomes loose after the collagen production decreases. Wrinkles tend to appear first and then the loosening of the skin starts to happen gradually.
The causes of sagging skin on the face...
1. Aging is one of the main reasons behind the sagging and loss of firm skin, due to the decrease in the natural production of collagen. The face starts to lose elasticity and firmness.
2. Using bad quality cosmetics that could contain harmful chemicals could also be behind the appearance of wrinkles, which is one things that many girls and women overlook.
3. Weight loss can also cause sagging in the face, especially when the body loses a lot of weight in a short period of time.
4. Lack of exercise can also contribute to the inability of maintaining tight skin.
5. Not sticking to an all rounded healthy diet can lead to the sagging of skin. It should be a mix between proteins, vitamins, iron and calcium. You should also make sure you're drinking enough water.
6. Your mental health also affects your physical health, which affects the state of your skin, especially when you do not get enough sleep.
7. Overexposure to the sun without applying sunscreen can increase wrinkles as well.

If you feel like your skin is already starting to age that way, you should start being consistent with sunscreen, everyday and in summer and winter. Also make sure you're always moisturizing your face. Try the Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Day Moisture or DermaQuest SheerZinc.
