What is lax skin?
As we age elastin in the skin is reduced and along with a reduction in the amount of collagen and moisture-holding proteins in the skin a loosening and stretching of the skin occurs. While this is a natural process the results are sagging loose skin along with folds and wrinkles.
The effects of photo aging or sun damage speed up this natural process of chronological aging of the skin. Sun damage can be minimized by the daily use of a good sunscreen and carefully chosen skin products containing retinoids and vitamin C. The effects of constant exposure to the sun are cumulative but not apparent at first.
