Sagging Skin killing your confidence? Here is what you should know about sagging skin and how to address the issue?

Skin is the largest sensory organ of the human body and having the softest and firm skin is an essential requirement for all. Ever wondered why hitting the gym or a strict diet plan isn’t really solving the issue of your sagging skin? Well, sagging skin can be caused due to numerous factors which can be related to your diet to exercise regime to genetic condition and commonly to aging! 

First, let us understand the mystery of perfect skin! Skin contains a protein element called collagen which is abundantly found in the bones, joints, and tendons. Collagen keeps the skin young and youthful by acting as the pillars of structure for the dermis. The dermis is the thickest layer of the skin. Collagen is produced by the fibroblasts in the human body and it comprises of tightly constructed fibres which provides the taut structure to the skin making it look youthful, bright, and fresh. 

Collagen production diminishes naturally with age. Collagen also includes elastin which is responsible for the firmness and tightening of the skin. As the collagen formation decreases, the skin loses its natural elasticity causing visible wrinkles and sagging skin. The most common areas where the sagging skin is visible include the eyelids, chin, stomach, throat, upper arms, and jowls. 

Let us now understand the causes of sagging skin other than natural ageing:

 Sudden weight loss regime: 

The human skin is extremely adaptable. It can withstand both external harsh changes as well as internal body functionality. When a person puts on weight, the skin stretches. Carrying weight for a more relative amount of time inhibits the skin’s natural ability to snap back into place due to prolonged expansion which damages the skin’s collagen and elastin fibres. Over weighted people who undergo crash weight loss regime are more prone to sagging skin especially around the abdominal areas. Sagging skin can indirectly hamper one’s self esteem so many people have opted for excess skin removal surgery which include common procedures like abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery as well as breast lift surgery, medically termed as mastopexy.

Exposure to sun for prolonged years:

Sun is a primary factor for premature skin ageing. Prolonged exposure to sun can enable the absorption of the ultraviolet rays from the sunlight to cause visible facial ageing symptoms and signs which includes sagging skin, vascular disorder, and wrinkles. The sun rays are responsible for breaking down the skin’s elastin over prolonged time which indirectly leads to the premature ageing of the skin. The epidermis, which happens to be the outermost layer of the skin, can also thin out upon prolonged exposure to the sun. 

Not just the sun, but other toxins like pollutants present in the surroundings and the food which we ingest, act as free radicals which deteriorate the collagen and the elastin fibres.

Lifestyle Habits:

Ingesting high protein diet or having poor nutrition are both linked to sagging skin. It has been scientifically proven that people who are more exposed to work-life in the pollutant surroundings have faster sign of visible facial ageing. Habits like drinking excess alcohol or smoking can also hamper the collagen production thus causing the skin to sag. 


Pregnancy is a blessing in disguise. The female body undergoes marvellous and challenging changes in the journey of motherhood. Loose skin around the abdomen is very common in post-partum and women who carry multiples like twins or triplets are more susceptible to sagging skin. 

Illness and genetic conditions:

People who suffer from granulomatous slack skin, which is a rare subtype of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, undergo gradual loosening of the skin around the elbows and knees and it doesn’t typically respond well to treatment. 

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a rare disorder of the connective tissue which is inherited. It is characterised by the defect in collagen production and results in sagging skin especially around the face.
