Skin Tightening – A Solution for Aged Skin:

Youthful skin is different from aged skin. Skin in the age frame of 30s and more, often has fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots that makes one look older and dull faced. If you are conscious of these lines and wrinkles, you must be aware that they are just an effect of age. Your skin might be aging too, and the puffiness and the patchiness is just an outcome of the same. If you are uneasy with sagging skin and wrinkles, laser tightening may be one of the options for you. This will give you a tighter skin, will remove your fine lines and reverse your aging timeline by at least a few years, making your skin look youthful again.

What causes the skin to loosen up?

The skin is directly under the impact of several conditions and environmental effects. Be it harsh weather, sun, rain, or bad habits, our skin suffers first. The factors responsible for this maybe lifestyle, genetics, diet, smoking and drinking etc.  A lot of free radicals are generated with each harmful process, causing the formation of fine lines on the skin, and often leading to sagging and loose skin. Exposure to sun leads to pigmentation, spotting, loss of subcutaneous support and other phenomena. As one grows older, the skin has a tendency to develop benign tumors. It tends to become rougher, loses elastin and collagen and becomes more loose and transparent. There are chances that the skin also gets easily bruised.  The sun is the greatest culprit when it comes to aged skin.

Connective tissue weakening:

The collagen content of the skin comes down with time and weakens your skin. This tissue supports your bones and cartilages, and when this gets depleted the entire skin naturally loses its support system.

Uneven fat distribution:

There is a huge repository of fat below your skin, and this starts forming clumps making the skin look weak and lumpy. The skin begins to sag due to gravity, making you look older.

Weight loss and pregnancy:

This is one other reason why the skin looks dull and unattractive. Rapid weight gain happens when one is pregnant or becomes fat. When one starts losing weight quickly, this results in a lot of loose skin that seems to stick out.

The areas of damage:

It might be surprising for you to know that your sleep pattern affects the lines on your face. Horizontal lines appear on the forehead, vertical ones on skin above the nose, curved lines on the temples, and small curved ones on the upper cheeks, below the eyes, and around the mouth. Smokers tend to have a greater number of wrinkles around their eyes and mouth.  In general skin becomes dull and dry as one ages.

Treatment options:

There might be more than one treatment that can help your skin regain its vitality and get back its original vigor. But for the same, one needs to regularly follow a routine set of treatments, be it natural, laser based, chemical or home based. There are quite a few homemade remedies that one might resort to.

Treating your skin may range from an option of increasing collagen growth, healing the present wrinkles that have already developed on your skin, preventing new wrinkles from appearing, plumping up the skin to make it look healthier and  healing the hydrolipidic layer of your skin.

Homemade remedies:

One could take up organic ways to set the problem right if they are too apprehensive about the permanent measures. An egg white and honey mask  is a protein and vitamin treatment, to rejuvenate the lost elastin proteins. 2 spoons of honey and an egg white applied on the face, and washed off with lukewarm water after 15 minutes will help redefine your skin.

The coffee scrubs:

Coffee is a very good ingredient to moisturize your skin. Use coffee, cinnamon and olive oil mixture to massage your facial tissues and see visible results within a month. A very good cleanser and moisturizer together make your skin feel baby soft.
