As we age, collagen production decreases and wrinkles and sagging skin can form. Sagging skin can have you feeling insecure and not yourself, but it also can have you looking much older than you are if you’re not taking a few easy preventative measures.
We take your sagging skin very seriously at South Beach Skin Lab so we’ve rounded up some of the most effective treatments for sagging skin to help you put your best face forward.
Every single day, your skin is exposed to so many external factors that contribute to the health of your skin. When pollution and toxins reach your skin, they produce free radicals that are the culprits of wrinkles, dark spots, and sagging skin.
Antioxidants help fight and neutralize free radicals to stop them in their tracks and help prevent the sagging skin they cause. In fact, even using an antioxidant moisturizer like our Repair & Release Cream once daily has been proven to prevent free radicals and firm skin. Because of powerful collagen and antioxidants, it prevents cell damage and keeps your skin safe and healthy while providing essential collagen to keep skin firm and youthful.
SPF is your BFF when it comes to all signs of aging, and sagging skin is no exception! Environmental factors, especially UV rays, are responsible for so much damage to our skin that protecting ourselves is the #1 defense against sagging skin and wrinkles.
Every single time you go outside, cloudy or sunny, you should be wearing at least SPF30. Think applying SPF once a day is enough? Think again! You should be re-applying sunscreen (don’t forget about your neck and chest too!) at least every 2 hours throughout the day or you won’t be properly protected.
Hydrate + Moisturize
Sagging skin doesn’t just show up overnight, it’s a result of not having cared for your skin properly in the past and that’s leading to dehydrated, dull and sagging skin. Your body needs 8 glasses of water a day to stay hydrated, imagine what your skin, the largest organ in your body, needs!
To keep your skin nourished and hydrated, using a moisturizing cream, no matter how powerful, isn’t enough. Chances are you’re using a regular foaming cleanser to wash your face and that’s likely what’s causing dehydration and sagging. Make sure to switch to an oil-based cleanser which has been proven more powerful? and gentle. It will remove dirt, makeup and leave your skin soft to the touch after the very first use. Make the switch and say goodbye to sagging skin for good!
