We’ve all noticed it, as the years pass, our skin becomes less and less firm. It’s down to a reduction of collagen and elastin as we age – meaning our skin goes from a fuzzy peach to drooping and wrinkled.
So what can you do to reduce the look? Here’s 6 ways – thanks to Health.com – in which you can make your skin cling on to its youthfulness for as long as possible!
Start with the basics
Slather on SPF 30 every day and reapply throughout the day. Then use a topical antioxidant to quench harmful free radicals.

Mind the don’ts
Smoking cuts off oxygen to the skin, wrecks collagen and elastin, and lowers your levels of estrogen, which are essential for keeping skin firm. If you consume alcohol, limit drinking to one or two drinks only once or twice a week. Alcohol increases insulin levels, which creates low-grade inflammation and can hasten sagging.

Use retinoids and peptides at night

They’re both proven collagen boosters and will accelerate cell renewal. Go with the strongest retinoid you can tolerate, whether it’s prescription-strength or over-the-counter. Rx formulas come in different intensities but generally move up in strength. To minimize irritation, dilute the formula with moisturiser. Or use less frequent doses and work up to every night.

Exfoliate
When you slough off skin cells, repair treatments can sink in more easily. Look for mild scrubs with ultra-fine beads. Or try a gentle-yet-thorough electronic cleansing brush.

Firm up eyes, chin, and neck

Eyes
Most women start to notice crow’s feet and fine lines in their early 30s—sooner if they’ve had a lot of sun damage.

DIY
Look for an eye cream that contains caffeine to de-puff and reduce dark circles. To tighten and firm over time, choose one that also has peptides or retinol. For a temporary lift, place frozen green tea bags (soak first) over your lids for a few minutes. The antioxidants and caffeine will help bring down inflammation and make your eyes look fresher.
