As we age, the outer layer of our skin naturally thins, and along with this goes the layer of fat and collagen that used to keep our skin looking youthful and plump. In contrast to the taut, supple appearance your skin has when you’re younger, ageing skin loses its elasticity and its ability to “bounce back”.
The symptoms of ageing become more obvious when your skin starts to sag in areas such as your cheeks/jaw line and neck. Muscle/weight loss and pregnancy also contribute to the loose skin on our bodies. Due to the loss of volume that has essentially stretched out our skin, these areas that once looked toned and defined begin to look thin & sagging.
