Which active ingredient(s) should be used against skin sagging, wrinkles and fine lines?

Due to ageing and/or poor lifestyle habits, the skin on the face begins to sag. Similarly, wrinkles and fine lines gradually appear. This natural phenomenon, affecting both men and women, gives an impression of constant fatigue. The active ingredients contained in certain skincare products can remedy this.

Skin laxity and the type of skin involved.

During youth, the face typically exhibits an inverted triangle shape. However, over time, the facial contours become less defined and the skin increasingly slack. This phenomenon is caused by the slowing down of the renewal of collagen and elastin fibres produced by fibroblasts. These cells ensure the firmness and resistance of the skin to stretching and tension. Age and genetics are the primary causes of skin sagging. Mature skin is more prone to this phenomenon. It is characterised by thinner skin, low sebum secretion, as well as the presence of wrinkles and fine lines. Age spots may also appear.

How to combat skin sagging?

Beyond the general skin sagging of the face, wrinkles and fine lines can appear in certain areas. They manifest as lines or folds located on the forehead, at the outer corner of the eye, or between the nose and mouth. To restore firmness and elasticity to your facial skin, your daily skincare routine should include nourishing ingredients.

The process of makeup removal is among the steps to take in order to rid your skin of makeup traces and eliminate impurities that clog the skin's surface. A weekly exfoliation is necessary for a healthy glow. Hydration and skin stimulation also promote cell renewal and collagen synthesis. Stimulate your facial muscles with facial gymnastics.

The active ingredients used to combat skin sagging and their contraindications.

To combat skin sagging, wrinkles and fine lines, certain active ingredients used promote the renewal of collagen and elastin. This is the case with the coenzyme Q10 , which is an essential antioxidant for reducing crow's feet or smile lines. The ferulic acid helps to fight against the photoaging of the skin and contributes to its firming. The hyaluronic acid also helps to tighten the skin by hydrating it and promoting water retention in the dermis. Derived from vitamin A, the retinol is a molecule that stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Acting on different levels of the epidermis, it supports the multiplication of keratinocytes which reduce skin ageing.
