Have you noticed that the skin on your face is beginning to sag and droop? Do you find it especially noticeable along the jawline and in the cheek area? Unlike what you may have thought, sagging and drooping skin isn’t age-related and therefore can start to happen at any time.

Sagging skin is caused by a breakdown of collagen, which can often be attributed to UV exposure. As well, a loss of elastin plays into the sagging affect, and gravity itself.

So what can you do about sagging and drooping skin? What happens if you don’t want to just accept it and deal with it? Here are some steps you can take that can help decrease the look of sagging and drooping skin.

Lifestyle Changes

The first step is to make some lifestyle changes. Because sagging and drooping skin is often a result of exposure to harmful UV rays, you will want to be sure you’re wearing adequate sun protection. It would also be wise to cut back on the amount of exposure you get, wear sunglasses, and a hat. Also, excessive drinking, smoking, rapid weight loss, obesity, a poor diet, and dehydration can all cause sagging skin.

Each of these require a lifestyle change that will help to make your skin healthier, and in turn slow down the sagging and drooping.

Make Sure Your Skincare Products Are the Right Products

You could be investing a lot of money in skincare products every month, thinking you’re doing everything right, but they may not be the best products for your needs. If the products contain harsh chemicals and don’t offer enough moisturisation, then you will be causing more harm than good. Ideally, you should use products that offer firming and lifting results. Look for ingredients that will plump up the skin cells, won’t clog pores, and products that are filled with peptides and collagen.

It’s usually a good idea to invest in a night cream, day cream, and eye cream, as each of these products addresses different concerns and contains different ingredients. Of course, your day cream should contain SPF in it unless you want to put on a separate sunscreen lotion each day.

Facial Rejuvenation May Be in the Cards

If you’ve followed each of these steps and still aren’t getting the kind of results you’re after, then you may be an excellent candidate for a facial rejuvenation procedure. There are a number of procedures to choose from, each addressing different concerns. You can look into a fat transfer to add volume to your face; cheek implants; a silhouette lift or thread lift, which is a less invasive option than a full facelift; a browlift to lift up your brow line, creating a more youthful and open eye appearance; a mid-facelift, which targets drooping and sagging skin along the jawline and cheeks; or a full facelift, which addresses a number of areas at once.

The good news is that there are plenty of ways to address and decrease the look of sagging and drooping skin so that you don’t have to just accept it.
