Skin laxity or looseness occurs when the skin loses its firmness and structure and becomes loose and starts to sag. Some people refer to this as crepey skin as well. Primarily, skin laxity occurs due to aging. … Premature skin aging can also be triggered and accelerated by other contributing factors, such as sun damage and weight fluctuations.

 As we age, the factors in our bodies that give our skin elasticity and smoothness begin to fade. Over time, we see sagging in our arms, around our knees, our jowls become slack, and we look like we are in a bag, not a body! The good news is that we can help slow and reverse the signs of skin laxity, making you appear younger, more vibrant, and help you feel more confident as you head down to the beach from your condo.

 We mentioned other contributing factors. Your lifestyle, genetics, stress, sun exposure, and stress can all contribute. You’ll want to work on these to help strengthen your skin, but sometimes those lifestyle changes aren’t enough. That is where we can come in and help. These are both intrinsic and extrinsic factors.

Intrinsic factors occur internally in our bodies. By and large, these are beyond our control. You were given your genes and there is little to be done there. As we age our skin begins to decline over time and genetics play a huge role in this aspect. We produce less collagen and elastin, resulting in skin changes. Starting at around age 20, collagen production begins to decline at a rate of about 1% per year. By age 65, your skin can be fragile and thin. Other internal factors, such as sweat and oil glands, begin to diminish in overall function over the years. Our oil glands are responsible for keeping the skin naturally hydrated and supple. As the production of those glands lessens the skin becomes drier, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles.

Extrinsic factors come from outside your body and there is a lot you can do there. Extrinsic aging occurs from environmental factors including toxins, pollutants, and Ultraviolet rays. In our day-to-day lives, we are exposed to high levels of free radicals which damage the skin and body. Antioxidants are key to preventing free radical damage so incorporating them into your diet and skincare regimen is essential. Vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin A (retinol), and green tea are all powerful antioxidants. Incorporating these antioxidants into your diet and skincare regimen is a great way to reduce the visible signs of aging. Along with diet and lifestyle, protecting your skin from UV rays is a must. Sun exposure accounts for about 85% of skin aging so wearing sunblock with at least 8% zinc needs to become part of your daily routine. Extrinsic aging causes the appearance of freckles, sun spots, excessive loss of collagen and elastin as well as skin cancer. The appearance of an uneven skin tone, dryness, roughness, fine lines, and wrinkles are also factors of extrinsic aging. The best thing you can do for your skin is to wear sunblock every single day!
