Elasticity in our skin leaves us as we age as well as the collagen. This is a direct reflection of the amount of sun that we’ve gotten during our lifetime. The sun breaks down collagen and decreases our elasticity and that’s what makes our skin sag. So if you want to age more gracefully lower the amount of sun exposure you get and wear your sunscreen!
