With age, many changes take place in our body one of which is sagging skin. Skin loses its youthfulness and starts to become loose, dull and old looking particularly in the neck area, due to the depleting of collagen and elastin of the skin. Sun exposure is also one of the reasons for skin to lose its elasticity. Ultraviolet rays of the sun damage the skin cells which over a period of time can increase the effects of aging on the skin. These sun rays break down the collagen and elastin that may lead to sagging of skin and wrinkles. Another reason for sagging of skin may be loss of weight drastically within a short span of time. Skin also tends to sag due to pregnancy.
Sagging of skin affects both men and women. There are some ways to get relief from this problem. Some may like to take Botox injection, although this involves injecting harmful chemicals and does not last long. Another method to overcome this problem is firming up the skin through cosmetics surgery. This procedure is quite expensive and painful and beyond the reach of most people. There are also some natural remedies that are also quite effective cheap and safe.
