Lost firmness and elasticity, dehydrated, flabby skin of the face is a problem for many women.
The loss of elasticity of the skin of the face and body can be associated not only with age-related changes in the body, but also with a number of other factors:
- nutritional deficiency, vitamin deficiency;
- unhealthy diet, insufficient intake of fats and proteins;
- the use of low-quality cosmetics or makeup abuse;
- unhealthy environmental situation;
- wrong lifestyle, bad habits such as smoking and alcohol;
- endocrine system diseases;
- passion for diets;
- a sharp decrease or, conversely, an increase in body weight;
- passion for tonic drinks - black tea, coffee.
To increase the elasticity of the skin of the face and body, most women use special commercial creams developed by cosmetologists. But, as practice shows, for this purpose, you can use self-prepared cosmetic products.
