4 tips on how to regain skin firmness

Have you noticed that your skin no longer has the same firmness as it did a few years ago? Skin sagging, or loss of firmness, is one of the main skin concerns. It naturally appears with age, but we can take action to delay, prevent, and reduce its impact. How can you regain skin firmness? In this article, we provide 4 recommendations on how to regain firmness.


Can you regain firmness and elasticity in the face?

If sagging has settled into your face, don't despair. We can assist you with some advice and recommendations for both lifestyle and non-surgical skincare routines that will increase the elasticity and firmness of your skin.

Causes of skin sagging you should know about

One of the consequences of aging is the loss of skin firmness. This process occurs throughout the body and is particularly visible in the face. The inverted triangle theory graphically explains this process: when we are young, around 20 years old, our face is an inverted triangle, but by the age of 40, this figure flips. The facial oval loses definition, and the jawline becomes rounded.

Facial sagging originates from the convergence of several causes: bone density decreases, facial ligaments sag, and as a result, the skin loses elasticity because fibroblasts no longer function at full capacity.

This not only results in the inverted triangle theory mentioned earlier and the corresponding change in the original shape of the face, but also in the displacement and weakening of bone, ligament, and fat structures, leading to the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles on the face. Another added problem: fluid retention can result in the dreaded double chin. The extra weight of this water accumulation pulls the facial oval downwards and promotes the formation of this unsightly double chin.

Loss of elasticity

In addition to sagging, the skin loses elasticity over the years. Elastosis is a natural process that occurs due to aging and involves losing the skin's ability to stretch and regain its original shape. In short, elastosis is the loss of skin elasticity. One of its consequences is the appearance of wrinkles because the skin cannot return to its initial position after a facial expression or gesture. In addition to being visible on the face, we can observe this problem around the neck, on the chest, and the back of the arms.

Overexposure to the sun

Overexposure to the sun is one of the main causes of skin sagging. Solar radiation promotes the generation of free radicals, which damage the dermal fibers and weaken them. Collagen breaks down in the skin, and the body does not replenish it as easily. As a result, the skin loses firmness and begins to sag.


Poor dietary habits

Poor nutrition can also accentuate sagging. Diets low in protein decrease muscle mass, which is essential for ensuring skin firmness. Skin sagging is directly linked to a deficiency in the consumption of fruits and vegetables. Excessive sugar accelerates collagen destruction. Dehydrated skin will have a weaker epidermis, thinner than normal, making it more prone to sagging and wrinkles.

Recommendations on how to regain skin firmness without surgery To improve facial firmness, as we are not always willing to undergo surgery due to all the inconveniences it may bring, we can turn to non-invasive aesthetic treatments. New cosmeceuticals are now more effective because they manage to reach deeper into the skin. It is there that they manage to stimulate the activity of fibroblasts, responsible for synthesizing collagen and elastin, which are essential for the good health of the dermal matrix, which acts as support for the skin. But we can (and should) also follow some basic recommendations to regain skin firmness without resorting to surgery.

  1. Maintain hydration and a healthy diet

To regain skin firmness, it will be necessary to maintain a diet rich in vitamins and proteins. A healthy diet should be rich in water - to ensure good hydration - and in foods that provide vitamins and antioxidants, such as vegetables and fruits like blueberries, spinach, oranges, etc. It is also advisable to include in our diet foods rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as some oily fish (tuna, sardines) and nuts like walnuts and almonds. This way, we will stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin, key to the creation of new fibers and the recovery of damaged tissues.

  1. Protect yourself from the sun

One preventive action to regain skin firmness is to protect ourselves from the sun and the damage it causes to our skin. We must use sunscreens throughout the year, not just in summer, as solar radiation affects us 365 days a year, regardless of whether it is sunny or cloudy. The most advanced ones not only protect from solar radiation but also have formulas designed for the protection and prevention of aging against pollution, stress, UVB, UVA, IR, VIS, and HEV solar radiation and electronic devices.

  1. Use a revitalizing cream

Of course, when considering how to regain skin firmness, one of the best ways is to use a revitalizing cream that helps redefine, firm, and revitalize the face. The goal is to regain its smoothness, elasticity, and firmness, maintain skin hydration, improve its turgor, and reduce wrinkles.

  1. Exercise regularly

If we want to tighten facial skin, continuous exercise will help tone and firm it. The most suitable exercise is that aimed at increasing strength, such as Pilates, which helps the skin regain its firmness. Exercise will allow you to firm and tone your body.
