Getting older is something worth embracing! As we age, we gain life experience, insight and wisdom. However, you may not want your age and experience to show prematurely on your face. One drawback of aging is that unwanted changes, like sagging, fine lines and fragile skin could emerge sooner than they need to.
While it’s natural to see skin lose its ability to bounce back, this is one part of getting older that you don’t need to embrace. If a loss of skin elasticity is bothering you, fret not; there are options. Let's explore how the Firm Skin Acai-Booster Serum with potent antioxidants can prevent loose skin and tighten the appearance of your complexion to reclaim your skin’s firm, healthy look!
Before we get into solutions for correcting this issue, we’ll need to go over the signs of sagging skin. First, what is saggy skin and how do you spot it? Sagging due to aging occurs when the skin begins to lose the elasticity and collagen we’re born with. Elasticity refers to your skin’s ability to snap back after being pulled or stretched, something that occurs every time we frown, smile or laugh.
Most often, you’ll notice that sagging takes the form of a loosened appearance or drooping in areas that were once firm. You may also notice a wrinkled, leathery look to your complexion. While you can spot a loss of elasticity anywhere, you’re most likely to see its effects in the eye area, jowls, neck and decollete. You can learn more about saggy skin in this complete guide.
One reason we lose elasticity is because the skin is repeatedly exposed to environmental stress. As the body’s largest organ, our skin acts as a protective layer, shielding us from the negative impact of environmental stressors. This is vital to our overall health; however, it also means that our skin is frequently damaged by the negative effects of the environment. Lifestyle and environmental factors like air pollution, sun exposure, rapid weight loss, nutritional choices and smoking can affect skin elasticity.
Changing your lifestyle may help, however, some causes of elasticity loss are nearly impossible to avoid. Keep reading to learn how skin care and antioxidants can help restore the elasticity you’re missing.
If you want to maintain your complexion’s firm, resilient look, there are options that help restore an elastic appearance. First, you can maintain your skin’s tight, healthy appearance with antioxidant-rich skin care products designed to restore the look of elasticity. Antioxidants are known to minimize the effects of environmental stressors while protecting the skin from future harm. Dermatologist Dr. Justine Hextall explains, “Serums and creams with antioxidants can protect skin and mitigate against the free radical damage from the effects of pollution and sun exposure, amongst other things.
One antioxidant-rich skin care product we love is the Firm Skin Acai Booster-Serum. With superfruit acai berry as its star ingredient, this serum is designed to soften the signs of aging by firming, plumping and revitalizing skin with a blend of antioxidants, BioComplex and Homeostatine®. You can use this serum two to three times a day or add it to your favorite moisturizer for an extra firming boost.
Using this product, you can expect that:
- The visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles are reduced
- Skin appears soft and noticeably smoother
- Skin is hydrated and appears plump

You may also enjoy the Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum which is formulated with Vitamin C and botanically-derived ferulic acid. This formula reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightens the skin’s appearance and improves the look of aging skin.
One of the most effective ways to correct sagging or loose skin is to bring antioxidants into your diet. You can improve your skin’s bounce from the inside out by reaching for foods like red and yellow peppers, tomatoes, artichokes, beets, spinach and avocados. If you have a sweet tooth, try snacking on antioxidant-rich blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and dark chocolate.
