Loose and wrinkled skin can be attributed to a variety of causes. However, the universal cause of loose and wrinkled skin is the aging process. Taut skin, firm, and smooth skin is much easier to maintain when an individual is younger.
This is because the body’s production of collagen and elastin has not yet begun to decline. Collagen and elastin are proteins in the body responsible for youthful-looking skin, the production of which naturally declines with age.
As the body’s production of collagen and elastin diminishes, beginning for most individuals in their early 20s, skin loses support and elasticity leading to wrinkled and loose or sagging skin.
On top of the natural aging process, there are several genetic, health, and lifestyle factors that influence the development of loose and wrinkled skin. Practicing good habits such as a healthy diet and skincare routine can have positive effects on skin health while too much sun exposure or smoking can cause loose and wrinkled skin.
