Excess skin hanging from your face or neck can add years to your appearance or give away your age. Worse yet, it may even cause you to look older than your true age. However, Aurora OB-GYN offers advanced skin tightening treatments to get rid of the loose skin. But first, here are just some of the habits that can contribute to saggy skin.
1. Supporting Your Face With Your Hands
Do you sometimes find yourself supporting your face with your hands while watching TV or listening to an interesting story? This comfortable position can cause the fibers of the skin to stretch and sag because unnecessary pressure has been exerted on them. But if the damage is already done, skin tightening treatments are available for you.
2. Unhealthy Foods
Everything you ingest affects the health of your skin directly. And if your diet is high in salt, sugar, and processed foods, your skin may become saggy and droopy.
3. Squinting and Frowning
Repetitive motions like squinting, frowning, narrowing your eyes, and furrowing your brow can give you aging skin and can make saggy skin appear worse.
4. Forgetting Sunscreen
A daily dose of sunshine can supplement your body’s vitamin D requirement and warm you up after spending all morning in an air-conditioned office. But stepping out without sun protection can trigger premature signs of aging like droopy eyes and saggy skin. So remember to apply sunscreen before sun exposure to prevent recurrence of loose skin.
5. Rubbing the Eyes
Rubbing your eyes when they feel uncomfortable or dry may seem harmless, but it can give you saggy skin around the eye area. The force you use on the delicate skin around the eyes is enough to leave you with droopy skin.
Smoking not only affects your body, but it also affects your skin. Nicotine found in cigarettes impairs healthy cell functioning by hindering blood circulation to the skin, which causes sagging. Additionally, the habit itself can damage the skin further because it strains the muscles around the mouth.
