5 tips to boost skin elasticity

4 minutes of reading

The skin constitutes our largest organ: it represents 16% of the total weight of a human body. Composed of several layers of tissues and different proteins, the skin is our fleshy envelope which protects our body from the external environment, and ensures vital functions. 💗

As we age, the skin changes and loses its tone and elasticity, especially on the face and neckline: this is what we call aging of the skin. What is skin elasticity, and how to maintain it? How to slow down skin aging? We give you all our advice in this article. 

What is skin elasticity?

The skin is elastic thanks to the elastin protein, present from 2 to 3% in the skin's constituents.This is what allows our skin to regain its shape after being pinched or stretched, and in particular to have a plump, wrinkle-free face during the first years of our life.Along with collagen, elastin helps give a younger appearance to our skin. 👶

Why does the skin age? 

As we age, the skin naturally relaxes and loses its firmness. Wrinkles and furrows form and spots can also appear on certain parts of the body.

In addition to this natural aging, other causes can cause skin aging:

  • Strong exposure to the sun without protection
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Genetic factors
  • Hormonal changes

Deep wrinkles due to age generally appear around the age of 50. From this age, the skin gradually loses its biomechanical properties and in particular its elasticity. Expression lines and certain fine lines on the skin can appear from the age of 20 depending on consumption and skin care habits. 👵

However, no one escapes natural skin aging, whatever their skin treatment habits.From a certain age, wrinkles become more and more visible, and you have to deal with them! Certain gestures and tips can, however, help to slow down this process and give an appearance “plump skin” for longer.
