Want Firmer Skin? Do This!

Want Firmer Skin? Do This!

Smooth, firm, and elastic skin. You know - that bouncy, supple skin that seems to defy gravity and time? It’s what we all want and dream about but as we age, it gets harder and harder to maintain. But have you ever wondered why we're so drawn to it, besides just admiring its youthful beauty? Firm, elastic skin isn't just about looking good - it's a sign that our skin is thriving from the inside out. Skin elasticity and firmness play a crucial role in maintaining overall skin health.

Collagen and elastin, two essential proteins found in the skin's dermis layer, are primarily responsible for maintaining its elasticity and firmness. Collagen provides structural support while elastin’s main job is to provide stretchiness. Think of collagen as a mattress and elastin is the box spring that supports it. Collagen helps keep your skin plump and smoother looking while elastin helps it snap back and have more spring and bounce. Working together, collagen and elastin help keep our skin firm and bouncy – the hallmark of younger looking skin.

The loss of skin elasticity and firmness is a natural part of the aging process. As we age, we start to lose collagen and elastin. The body’s ability to produce collagen slows down and even produces lower-quality collagen. We start losing about a percent of collagen per year in our mid-20s and lose as much as 30% during the first 5 years of menopause. Similarly, the skin also starts to lose elastin which leads to the loss of skin elasticity and saggy, crinkled, or leathery skin. Environmental factors as well as the lifestyle choices we make play a big role in the destruction of collagen and elastin and can accelerate the loss of skin elasticity and firmness. For example - sugar and refined carbs are both bad for collagen but did you know that sugar actually interferes with collagen’s ability to repair itself?

The good news is that skin elasticity and firmness can be improved. It goes back to those topics we talk about regularly – a healthy diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, proper hydration, daily SPF to protect your skin from the sun and a consistent beauty wellness routine. In addition to establishing a skincare routine tailored to your skin and concerns, consider adding supplements that will help improve your skin from the inside out.

Glotrition’s NEW Firm Skin Bundle featuring the Super Beauty Elixir and Afterglo Gummiceutical is the perfect addition to your beauty wellness routine.
