My skin is beginning to sag and I can physically feel the looseness of my skin

Q. In the past year I have seen drastic changes in my skin. My skin is beginning to sag and I can physically feel the looseness of my skin. I am in my late 40’s and I worry that if my skin condition is already like this, what will happen in my 50’s. I try to maintain a healthy balanced life, so this ageing of my skin has come as a bad surprise. Please advise what I should do.

A. First, let me try to explain what is happening to your skin. As you know predominately, youthful skin is taut and supple because your skin has an abundance of collagen and elastin. These are two proteins. Collagen gives the skin its structure and elastin allows your skin to stretch. As you age, you produce less and less of these components and this is why the skin loses its bounce and elasticity.

The sun (UV), dehydration, nutrition, lifestyle choices and pollution, to name a few, play a part on how you age as these factors can cause the mother (stem) cells in our skin to deteriorate and slow down production. I should also mention that people’s ageing process is also heredity and genetic.

But I am happy to share that you do have some control over these factors and with a few adjustments can alter, prevent and improve your skin. One of my most sought after treatment is Skeyndor’s Stem Cell Eternal Facial which is a luxurious and powerful facial treatment delivering immediate and long term results for ageing and damaged skin. Using award winning apple plant stem cell extracts, the Eternal Youth treatment offers multi-action, regenerating benefits smoothing out wrinkles and lines, intensely hydrating, improving elasticity, tone and texture. You will find an immediate evenness and glow and a completely renewed skin, firm, fresh and supple. We use the most advanced technology and tools that ensure that all the products used will fully penetrate into the skin to give you the best results. In short it improves your skin’s elasticity and firmness drastically. It can boost your collagen production by almost 20% and can make you look younger now.

When it comes to signs of ageing, I highly recommend that you address the issue as soon as possible where you give yourself the best chance of seeing immediate and longer lasting results.
