5 tips to boost skin elasticity
The skin is our largest organ: it represents 16% of the total weight of a human body. Composed of several layers of tissue and different proteins, the skin is our carnal envelope that protects our body from the external environment, and provides vital functions. 💗
As you age, the skin changes and notably loses its tone and elasticity, especially on the face and neckline: this is called aging skin. What is skin elasticity, and how do you maintain it? How to slow down the aging of the skin? We give you all our advice in this article.
What is skin elasticity?
The skin is elastic thanks to the protein elastin, present from 2 to 3% in the constituents of the skin.This is what allows our skin to regain its shape after being pinched or stretched, and in particular to have a plump and wrinkle-free face in the first years of our lives.Along with collagen, elastin helps give our skin a younger look. 👶
Why does the skin age?
As we age, the skin naturally slackens and loses its firmness. Wrinkles and furrows form and spots may also appear on certain parts of the body.
In addition to this natural aging, other causes can cause skin aging:
- Strong sun exposure without protection
- 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 wrinkles and some 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, regardless of their skin treatment habits.From a certain age, wrinkles become more and more visible, and you have to deal with it! However, certain gestures and tricks can help slow down this process and give a "plumped skin" appearance for longer.
