Loss of firmness and elasticity is common during the aging process. As skin ages, it produces less collagen and becomes dehydrated that can lead to sagging, fine lines and wrinkles, and furrows. You can see this loss of firmness by pressing on your skin. If it doesn't immediately spring back, you are already experiencing collagen loss. Loss of elasticity can begin as early as your twenties, but there's no need to resort to the scalpel just yet. Beginning an anti-aging skincare routine before you actually see evidence of skin aging is the best way to stave off loss of elasticity and have younger looking skin longer.
In addition to the natural aging process, other factors play into a loss of elasticity and firmness within the skin. Free radical damage caused by environmental factors such as pollution, stress, and lifestyle choices can lead to a loss of elasticity. Dehydration (a loss of moisture within the skin) is another factor that can lead to fine lines and wrinkles, while years of sun exposure is a leading cause of skin aging.
Luckily, there are options for preventing and reversing the loss of firmness and elasticity in the skin. Although aging is inevitable, you can begin a targeted skincare routine that involves the use of firming and protecting products that will help boost the skin's natural collagen production and rehydrate and moisturize to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When looking for a product to do all this, look for ones that contain antioxidants and specifically say they facilitate firming and reduce wrinkles. We especially like iS CLINICAL Firming Complex because it provides immediate and long-term firming results by increasing collagen production, and it provides adequate antioxidant protection against free radical damage.
You don't have to take drastic measures or spend your life's savings to achieve younger looking, taut skin again. A simple targeted anti-aging skincare routine will do the trick.
