Defy Gravity: How to Treat Sagging Skin

The laws of gravity tell us that what comes up must also come down. Sadly, the same can be said of your skin. As frustrating as suddenly saggy skin can be, it can be reduced with the right skin care routine.

Why Does Skin Sag?

As we age, the collagen and elastin in our skin weakens, causing a decrease in skin’s density and resilience. Skin becomes less firm and less able to retain its shape. And thanks to gravity, that looser skin starts to sag.

How to Prevent and Tighten Sagging Skin

Be Smart with SPF

Because UV damage speeds up the loss of firmness, wearing a moisturizer with a broad spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis is the easiest way to help prevent sagging.

● Give it a Little Extra Help

A serum can help improve the appearance of slightly saggy skin by deeply hydrating with key ingredients like peptides and Niacinimide (or vitamin B3). The lightweight, concentrated formula restores skin’s elasticity with plumping hydration and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

● Use the Right Moves

Hydrated skin is naturally fuller and massaging the moisturizer into skin in a circular motion will improve circulation to give a temporary plumping effect to your skin.
