Winter comes with a plethora of skin issues and the increase in the drop of temperature takes a toll on the facial skin. And as you start ageing, the skin may begin to sag as a consequence of a natural loss and weakening of collagen and elastin due to cool winds. However, keeping in mind a few basic steps can help you in getting rid of the sagging skin. A moisturiser can be a great buddy to your skin during the winter season.
We EeYuva list down some steps how to treat the sagging skin applying a moisturiser… Have a look!
It is highly recommended to apply a moisturiser with vitamins C and E both morning and night to your face and neck. Moisturising is important to keep the skin firm and smooth as you age. While selecting the right moisturiser, look for ingredients like aloe vera, soy protein, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin A.
UV damage speeds up the loss of firmness of the skin, therefore wearing a moisturiser with a broad spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis is the easiest way to help prevent sagging.
Needs Extra Effort
To improve the appearance of the skin that is already slightly saggy, you should look for a moisturiser with the right, powerful ingredients. Go for a moisturiser that contains peptides and Niacinamide (or vitamin B3), it will help strengthen your skin's natural moisture barrier and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydrated skin is indeed fuller and massaging the moisturiser into the skin in a circular motion for a few minutes will improve the blood circulation and will give a temporary plumping effect to your skin. Do massage your neck in an upward direction that will prevent any sagging of the skin in that area.
Do Facial Exercise
Follow some facial exercises that are able to prevent sagging. Regularly do the facial exercises after applying the moisturiser because it will prevent your skin from pulling. The first exercise is to smile without moving your cheeks and hold it for a few seconds, then release.
Do this 10 times. Another exercise is - smile as broadly as you can and place your fingers on the top of your cheekbones. Push down the cheekbones with your fingers for 10 seconds. Repeat this 5 times.
