Sagging skin combined with wrinkles are definitely the signs of aging. As we enter the final stage of our life cycle, we tend to face wrinkled skin coupled with dreary look on our face.

Here in this article, I will focus on toning up of sagging skin and the tips to keep our skin younger. All these can be done at the comfort of your home. Nature has everything, that we can think of and it has also given us remedies to make us look younger with the help of fruits and vegetables only. One can opt for cosmetic surgeries which cost a fortune and takes weeks of recovery time. These artificial options can sometimes give you undesirable changes in your body.

What causes wrinkles and sagging skin?

When we grow old, our skin produces less oil in our older years and this makes our skin drier and lifeless. The less production of elastin and collegen in the dermis causes wrinkles. Dermis is the second layer of our skin. Elastin and collegen are essential proteins which supports our skin. As I said, wrinkles can emerge at a younger age also. This is not the case with sagging skin. Sagging skin definitely indicates our old age. Some of the prominent reasons behind sagging skin are mentioned below:

(a) Aging- Aging brings sagging skin and nothing can be done to stop aging. It is a natural process and everyone has to experience this. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin is lesser compared to the younger age. These two proteins are actually responsible to make our skin firm and tight. Less production causes loose skin combined with wrinkles. Aging also weakens the muscles to support our skin.

(b) Gravity- Gravitational force pulls our body and our skin down to make it worse. Nothing can be done against this natural force. It begins from the time of our birth till our death. Its effect is omnipresent and shows only when we get older, the signs of wrinkles and sagging skin shows off due to gravitational force.

(c) Smoking- Smoking is also one of the reasons of early wrinkles and sagging skin. Smoking damages the cell and affects the production of collegen and elastin which are essential to hold our skin back to its roots.
