How to Restore Skin Firmness and Elasticity

How to Restore Skin Firmness and Elasticity Loss of skin firmness and elasticity is one of the main signs of skin ageing. To slow down the ageing process and keep your skin looking youthful as long as possible, you should take steps to restore skin elasticity and tightness. Here are a few tips on boosting your skin’s firmness without resorting to expensive beauty products and treatments.

Your skin owes its firmness to collagen and elastin, two key proteins in the extracellular matrix of connective tissue, including skin. Collagen is primarily responsible for skin firmness and wound healing, while elastin, just as its name suggests, is important for skin elasticity. Together, these proteins support the normal structure of the skin, ensure the restoration of the original structure of epidermal cells after skin stretching and compression, as well as tight adhesion of skin cells to the layer of subcutaneous fat, etc.

As you age, your body starts producing less and less collagen and elastin, while the collagen and elastin that it has already produced are destroyed at a faster rate. This is a completely natural process associated with genetically programmed ageing of your whole body, so there is no need to be worried. However, if you’re still in your 20s or early 30s and your skin has already lost much of its firmness and elasticity, this is probably caused not by natural ageing, but by some kind of internal or extremal factors (or their combination).

For example, loss of skin elasticity can be caused by hormonal changes, stress, metabolic disorders, sudden weight loss or gain, improper skin care, and exposure to aggressive environmental factors. In all these cases, the problem can and should be dealt with. The first thing you need to do is eliminate the underlying cause of the loss of skin elasticity; after that, you should upgrade your skincare routine to restore skin firmness and elasticity.

First of all, you need to make sure that your skin is properly hydrated, since moisture loss aggravates the effects of the decrease in collagen and elastin production. In addition to providing your skin with much-needed moisture, you also need to boost its barrier function to prevent transepidermal water loss.

For this purpose, you should use skincare products that contain humectant, emollient and occlusive ingredients, such as natural vegetable oils, squalene or squalane, allantoin, hydrolysed vegetable proteins, glycerine, fatty alcohols and acids, hydrolysed collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate, honey, aloe vera, carbamide (urea), amino acids, and algae extracts.

The next important step on the way to restoring skin elasticity is regular skincare tailored to your skin type. A proper skincare routine, regardless of your skin type, should include skin cleansing, toning, nourishment, and restoration. In addition to various skincare products, your routine can include skin massage to improve microcirculation and boost skin cell metabolism, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, and help to provide skin cells with oxygen.

To take care of the skin that is losing elasticity, you need moisturisers, serums and face masks formulated with firmness restoring ingredients, such as vitamins A, B3, C and E, peptides and ceramides, lactic and glycolic acids, coffee, tea and cocoa extracts, and certain essential oils (orange, lemon, grapefruit, rosemary, anise, clove, myrrh and frankincense).

To restore skin firmness and tightness, you should also regularly exfoliate your skin. Face scrubs and peels help to remove dead cells from the skin surface and improve microcirculation, speeding up skin regeneration and renewal. In addition, exfoliation makes it easier for active ingredients to penetrate your skin and, therefore, increases the effectiveness of your skincare routine. Of course, it is important to choose scrubs or peels that suit your skin type and contain skin firmness-boosting ingredients.

To restore skin elasticity at home is a rather difficult, but doable task, especially if you use high-quality natural and organic skincare products from trusted manufacturers.
