As the years go by, interest in keeping skin from sagging and looking firm and toned increases.
That's because we all prefer to look younger!

As we grow older, the amount of fat found in our lower layer of skin decreases, our glands produce less oil, and collagen and elastin fibers lose their elasticity. The natural process of cell reproduction in the dermal layer also decreases as we grow older, resulting in a slower rejuvenation of our skin cells.
So, now that we know just why this happens let's talk about the part that is more important to those of us suffering from this affliction, the solution to improving skin elasticity.
