If you are worried about sagging skin as you age, don’t be too concerned. There are many ways you can prevent sagging skin associated with aging. Starting prevention is best when done early on. A few things that will help you avoid extreme sagging later on include the following.
When applying creams to your face, make sure they contain sunscreen to prevent damage to your skin. Make sure to avoid going out in the sun for the hottest parts of the day (between 10 and 2), and make sure to wear sunglasses as well as a hat to keep sun exposure minimized.
Losing weight and gaining it back repeatedly (also known as yo-yo dieting) causes your skin to lose its elasticity. Being active prevents your face from developing that stretched out look, and then getting sagging skin when you lose the weight. Make sure to drink a good amount of water and stay active to keep your weight at its best.
Your diet also includes eating wholesome foods, especially those high in antioxidants. The best way to measure the good for you content of a meal is whether it has many colors; bright colors are an easy way to make sure you are eating healthy foods. It is best to eat them raw or lightly cooked vegetables and fruits.
If your diet doesn’t allow you to get all the vegetables you need, then consider adding or supplementing with a vitamin or powdered supplement drink mix.
This can be stated enough, whether your skin is still young or you are already experiencing sagging skin. As your skin loses moisture, it begins to droop. Using a good lotion with natural oils will help to prevent sagging skin, and can often reverse the effects of sagging. The oils keep prevent free radicals from forming, while providing a moisture barrier.
Stress is a proven cause of many physical ailments, and high stress can cause you to frown more often. This can cause wrinkles, which can lead to long term damage as the collagen break down. Taking a spa day to relax and refresh your skin might be better for your appearance than just a facial treatment – perhaps you do need to take time to relax.
