As the years go by, your skin loses elasticity and becomes increasingly flaccid. From the age of 35, your body reduces amount of collagen in the skin, causing it to lose its firmness.
Collagen is a protein that forms between 25% and 30% of the total protein mass in the body. It can be found in all of the body’s most important structures such as bones, tendons and ligaments. It is the protein that supports the skin and the most complex of the connective tissue, so a lack of collagen causes a lack of firmness and increased flaccidity.
Body flaccidity can be defined as decreased skin tone and firmness, leading to a sagging and flabby appearance. The lack of this support is precisely caused by a decrease in collagen and elastin which, as previously mentioned, are mainly responsible for giving our dermis its elasticity and strength.
Besides age, there are other factors that have an influence on skin flaccidity, such as genetic predisposition, unsuitable habits for the skin, such as excessive sun exposure without protection (known as photoaging – ageing of the skin caused by abuse of solar radiation), or poor eating habits.
The areas of the body most prone to flaccidity are those where the skin is thinner and more sensitive to changes, such as: the face, arms, thighs and abdomen.
