Loss of Firmness: Skin Sagging
As age advances, various phenomena occur in the skin: it becomes thinner, weakens, and becomes dehydrated. In the dermis, collagen and elastin fibers are gradually altered and lose their properties. Similarly, the skin loses the essential amount of hyaluronic acid. Consequence: wrinkles and fine lines appear, the skin loses tone, elasticity, and firmness.
For every issue, there is a suitable anti-aging facial treatment containing targeted active ingredients to meet different skin needs while hydrating daily.
Sagging skin occurs gradually over the years, starting from skin maturity. It is accentuated by excessive sun exposure. The skin of the body, particularly the face, loses its tone. Although universal, this phenomenon depends on biological factors but also on our lifestyle. In fact, the skin is highly influenced by external factors: diet, smoking, alcohol, sleep, sun exposure. Combating sagging skin involves adopting a healthy lifestyle and also through the action of dedicated facial care, such as a lifting cream. Skin sagging is a complex phenomenon, mainly characterized by a change in elastic fibers (elastin and collagen), a slowing down of production by the skin, and a preferential destruction of new fibers compared to old ones. However, collagen is fibers that strengthen the connective tissue of the skin, and elastin fibers are those that ensure its flexibility and elasticity: they are essential for skin firmness and tone. A lifting cream, if it contains the right active ingredients in the right dosage, can be used at the first signs of loss of firmness.
The lifting effect creams help combat the phenomenon of sagging skin, mainly because their active ingredients stimulate the production of different types of collagen in the skin.
