Do wrinkles have started to form on your skin? Is your skin beginning to look dull? Our skin naturally loses its firmness and youthful appearance because of aging and other factors. Although saggy skin can happen in almost any part of the body, it’s more commonly noticed in areas such as:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Arms

What Causes Sagging Skin?

  • Weight Loss. Extra weight for an extended period can cause damage to the elastin fibers and collagen in your skin. If you go through significant weight loss in a short period of time, saggy skin may appear; this can happen especially after procedures like bariatric surgery.
  • Pregnancy. Some degree of saggy and loose skin is common around your abdomen after pregnancy, especially in women with twins or triplets. Your age when becoming a mother also plays an important role.
  • Aging. As time goes by, your skin naturally loses collagen and elastin, two essential proteins for healthy skin. Elastin gives elasticity to your skin and provides firmness and tightness. These proteins can also be deteriorated by other factors, such prolonged sun exposure, cigarette smoking, environmental contaminants, and poor nutrition.

What Causes Dull Skin?

If your skin has been looking lackluster, it could be for several different reasons:

  • Excess Of Dead Skin Cells. Your skin sheds dead cells regularly to make way for new cells, but sometimes dead cells don’t shed correctly. Instead, they build up on your skin’s surface and, as a result, the skin goes dry and dull.  
  • Lack Of Moisturizer. Moisturizing helps to protect the skin’s barrier from irritation. It also helps to reduce the development of dryness, creating a barrier between your skin and the climate, including cold, dry air that can further dry out skin.
  • Tobacco Abuse. Smoking can affect collagen production and damage the elastic fibers in your skin. It can also increase stress in skin cells, accelerating the aging process and contributing to dull skin.
  • Dehydration. If you are not drinking enough water (at least 1.5 liters daily), the appearance of your skin can be affected. Drinking enough water boosts hydration on your skin layers.
  • Aging. The aging process is something that we can’t control. Still, you can adopt a skincare routine that provides your skin with the hydration to stay healthy and glowing.

 

 

Can Sagging, Dull Skin Be Reversed?

Yes! You can surely improve the appearance of your skin with the help of different methods:

Topical Treatments. Skin tightening creams and lotions containing ingredients such as retinol (vitamin A), collagen, hyaluronic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, and vitamin C.

Exercise. Saggy skin on the body caused by weight loss or pregnancy can be improved through exercise. Any movement that builds muscle mass can reduce the look of sagging, for example:

  • Weight lifting. Working out with machines or resistance bands helps increase muscle mass.
  • Pilates. Pilates consists of controlled movements to tighten your body’s legs, arms, and chest.

Skin-Tightening SerumsPB Serum is a powerful treatment that uses bioactive enzymes with active ingredients that act selectively against various pathologies, like dull skin and cellulite, among others.

Exfoliation. Including exfoliation in your skin care routine is important to achieve a glowing complexion. It helps smooth and polish your skin, stimulating collagen production.

Daily Sunscreen. By blocking and absorbing UV rays, sunscreen helps prevent sunburns, aging, and even skin cancer.
