Why Your Skin Isn’t Firm

By ·

Around your late 20s and early 30s, and sometimes even into your 40s and beyond, you may start to notice changes in the texture of your skin. What was once firm, tight and supple may now be thin and crepey in texture. Depending on what light you catch yourself in, your skin may appear to be wavy, but feel smooth to the touch. Blame it on depleted collagen levels, which happens in part due to natural aging, but chances are your face and body don’t feel, or look, as taut as they used to.

If your skin is not extremely saggy, a noninvasive skin-tightening treatment may be able to offer improvement. Regular exercise can help, since it creates a healthier breeding ground for high-quality collagen, and diet plays a role, too. In fact, some studies show that taking daily vitamin C and fish oil supplements can increase the skin’s elasticity by about 14 percent.
