Let’s Talk About: Jowls

Tight jawlines change as we age.

Loss of elasticity around the jawline (drooping jowls) and on the rest of the face is a very common sign of aging. It is part of the natural aging process.

If you're looking for something that can help tighten up skin, you'll want to check out our Temporary Lifting Mask. This is an egg-based mask that does exactly what you think it will-- it firms up the appearance of your skin for a more youthful-looking complexion.

Also avoid:

Smoking speeds up the skin’s loss of elasticity; certain substances in cigarettes can increase the breakdown of Collagen and negatively affect its synthesis. Furthermore, smoking decreases blood flow to the skin and diminishes the delivery of nutrients.

Sugar is another culprit. Eating too much sugar causes Glycation, the process by which the sugar you consume starts to attach to proteins in the body, forming Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs), causing the proteins to become malformed. Collagen and Elastin are the proteins most likely to be affected by Glycation. The result? Fine lines, wrinkles, and the loss of elasticity.

Other factors that affect the skin’s elasticity include: Sun damage, Sleep, and Stress. (Yes, we also noticed that all of these start with the the letter S!)
