Why does skin lose its elasticity over time?
As we age and we start to develop mature skin, the two main proteins associated with skin elasticity, collagen and elastin, come up against many contributing factors which causes them to break down. Resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, including eye wrinkles.
Like any other bodily function, skin elasticity deteriorates with age but the effects are accelerated by unhealthy habits such as smoking resulting in less firm skin.
Skin is an organ like any other organ or muscle in the body. Skin firming and the appearance of wrinkles can be influenced by lifestyle changes and eating habits. By making changes to your lifestyle you can improve elasticity in your skin for firmer skin and effectively delay the onset of wrinkles.
