Skin Elasticity

One of the defining features of healthy skin is that it springs back to normal almost instantly after being pulled. This attribute is what’s referred to as skin elasticity, and is largely driven by two proteins; collagen and elastin.

These branch out into a tightly-knit network of fibres underneath the epidermis to create a layer that pulls the skin back into place whenever it’s stretched. Unfortunately, with time, these proteins deteriorate and the network loosens its ability to snap skin back into place. This is referred to as the loss of skin elasticity and is what leads to sagging skin and even under eye bags.

One of the basic elements of healthy skin is to adopt a balanced diet and gather ample rest on a daily basis. This may seem like a simple solution, but remember, the loss of skin elasticity happens from within your body, and in some cases, a balanced diet and a healthy body can do more for achieving beautiful skin than even the best moisturizer. Also, cleaning and washing the skin regularly helps remove dirt and other impurities that can wear down skin cells by creating a PH imbalance. Ideally, the skin should be washed twice a day with mild facial cleanser devoid of fragrance.

Some people are sensitive to extreme weather conditions like too much sunlight or extreme cold and need sunscreens to retain skin elasticity. Basic precautions must be taken to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of more than 30 to prevent ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun from damaging the skin.
