You want to look your best. And you know you’re fighting the aging battle every day. Unfortunately with aging, comes sagging skin. This process happens naturally with the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin over time. You do not have to surrender your beautiful skin to the negative effects of sagging, bagging and drooping! Here are five easy ways to help reduce sagging skin, naturally:
The sun’s UV rays are incredibly strong and can take a toll on our skin. Applying sunscreen can help reduce wrinkles, skin discoloration or darkening and sagging while preventing melanoma (a form of skin cancer).
Get Enough Sleep
Sleep is so important! In the world of technology and multi-tasking, people tend to undervalue sleep. During your nightly slumber, your body repairs and refreshes itself, including refreshing the skin. Ideally, you want to get 7-9 hours of sleep per night for your body to rejuvenate and repair itself.
Cigarettes can cause a lot of damage to the body, both internally and externally. Externally, you will be able to see the impacts it has on your skin. Smokers usually find their skin is dry, uneven, blotchy and discolored. Cigarettes also deplete your skin of necessary vitamins that keep your skin looking healthy. Kick the habit!
Decrease Your Sugar Intake
Sugar is detrimental to your skin and your waistline. When you consume sugar, it causes inflammation throughout the body. The inflammation causes the body to release enzymes that break down and destroy collagen and elastin. Over time, this will result in sagging and wrinkled skin. Help your skin and decrease the sugar.
Start a Cosmetic Acupuncture Routine
A consistent cosmetic acupuncture routine can be just as effective as Botox, but without any fillers, chemicals and injections! Tiny, painless needles are used on the face to lift skin, reduce lines and wrinkles and improve moisture in the skin. You get all the benefits of Botox but in a holistic and natural way.
