3 Home remedies for sagging skin
As you age, your skin’s elastin and collagen structure loses its elasticity to start looking loose and saggy. Moreover, age makes the facial muscles weak and contributes to saggy skin. Besides, excessive exposure to harmful sun rays, too much smoking, pregnancy, obesity, rapid weight loss, a poor diet, regular consumption of alcoholic beverages, dehydration and use of harsh chemicals on the skin can all lead to a loss of the skin’s elasticity.
Not only does your skin start sagging with age, there is also an increase in wrinkles and fine lines, especially on the face. You also find your skin growing paler and translucent, and even becomes more sensitive.
The best thing to do to control and treat sagging skin is trying out these home remedies:
