Myth Busting Sagging Skin

Unless you’ve discovered the fountain of youth, wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin are inevitable. No matter how hard you want miracle-anti-aging DIYs to be true, the aging process will take its course.

Several misconceptions surround the skin sagging phenomenon. People with not-so-tight skin often fall for these myths and end up causing more skin damage than repair. Let’s debunk some common misconception to deal with sagging skin and wrinkles in a graceful way.


If you’re delaying your much-awaited weight loss journey just because of the fear of sagging skin, you’re up for a rude awakening. It’s a common perception that running leads to sagging skin. Thankfully, that’s not the case; or else, all the professional athletes would have look 80 years old.

Sagging skin is caused when your body stops producing sufficient amounts of collagen. The skin loses its elasticity, as the levels of collagen decreases. With age,collagen production slows down, which leads to droopy skin.

However, the excessive sun exposure that comes along with running or jogging may slow down the collagen production process. Protect your skin from sun damage. If you notice brown patches or dry skin, consult a skin specialist immediately.

Sleeping on the stomach

Humans change their sleeping positions around 11 times throughout the night. This leadsyour facial muscles to contract and expand.

However, sleeping face down does cause lines and marks on your skin. These marks may disappear quickly when your skin is young, but with age, these marks may become a problem.

Use a sleep wrinkle pillow or adopt a sleeping position that limits facial contact with the pillow.

Facial exercises

The efficacies of facial exercises are not medically proven. Some exercises might reduce swelling or bloating. However, if your body lacks collagen, sagging is inevitable.


Deep cleansing and exfoliation get rid of dirt, dust and oil deep within your pores. Unfortunately, your face loses all its moisture, when washed excessively. Face washing can’t prevent skin sagging, although, it can keep your skin clean and supple.

On the other hand, frequent or abrasive face scrubbing strips away your moisture. As a result, your skin increases oil production to hydrate the skin. Oily pores cause wrinkles and variety of other skin problems such as acne breakout.
