The face loosens due to the skin’s aging, which is evidenced by drooping eyelids, disappearance of contours, the deepening of static wrinkles or the appearance of bags under the eyes and fine lines. You can slow this process down, however, to maintain firmer skin with simple actions and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Eat Foods Rich in Vitamin E
All vitamins are good for the skin’s health, but foods abundant in vitamin E are your biggest allies if you want to keep your skin firm. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and a source of youth, as it protects the cells from oxidation and therefore your skin from aging. It is found primarily in vegetable oils, but also in egg yokes, butter, whole grains, avocados, sardines and oily nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, etc.
Clean and Hydrate Your Skin Every Day
Dehydration is one of the main causes of aging skin, because when the cells lack water, it is more difficult for them to regenerate. Hydrating your skin in the morning and evening and drinking enough water prevents looseness and keeps your skin soft, smooth, and firm. Daytime creams and night time care products must be rich in hydrating and regenerating active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid to satisfy the cells’ needs. Always cleanse before hydrating using a product suitable for your skin type. Doing this in the morning and in the evening eliminates impurities rejected by the skin during the night or accumulated during the day.
Massage Your Face
You can help your face, like your body, to regain its firmness by massaging it daily using a daytime cream or nighttime care product. If your face is saggy, do circular motions from bottom to top to help smooth, tone and restore your skin’s glow. This is best done in the evening after removing your makeup and cleansing your face carefully, massages have a relaxing effect and activate cell regeneration during the night.
Do Facial Exercises
Regular facial exercise helps strengthen the muscle tissue, relaxes tension and firms the skin. There are slightly more than 50 muscles in your face, some of which are used frequently while others are not used enough to stay toned. Facial exercises stimulate blood circulation and activate the little-used muscles. They help reduce drooping eyelids, double chins, wrinkles around the mouth, crow’s feet and lion’s wrinkles.
Protect Your Skin From the Sun’s Rays
After dehydration, the sun’s rays are the second main reason for aging, loosening skin. Ultraviolet rays cause brown spots on the face, and they also have adverse effects under the skin by disrupting how our cells work. In fact, they reduce the amount and quality of the fibers, collagen and elastin, which are required for firmer skin. It is important to control your exposure to the sun and always protect your skin with a suitable sunscreen.
Certain factors can also oxidize the skin and make it become loose, like excessive consumption of alcohol or tobacco, taking medications, infectious and inflammatory diseases, pollution, physical or intellectual exhaustion and stress.
