During our childhood and youth, we enjoy an enviable skin: soft, smooth,
uniform color and no stains, but over the years takes away those qualities.
The skin, dermis in its upper layer, has various structures and components
that maintain its appearance. From collagen for firmness to glycosaminoglycans, which are responsible for keeping it hydrated. As the years go by, our skin decreases in quality. At the end of the second
decade of life, the first consequences begin to show in the form of a decrease in collagen, gradually lowering its production.

If they decrease, the skin loses its natural elasticity, the ability to renew itself and to get rid of the bad. The glands responsible for sweat and skin oils also decrease their activity, and to that we add the inevitable force of gravity. We could blame our body for wrinkles, but we ourselves are responsible for most of them.

When exposed to the sun and environmental pollutants, injuries occur and
accelerate the normal aging of the skin. To this we add bad habits of life and
diet, forming the perfect recipe to be wrinkled and with the face and body
stained at an earlier age than usual.

Reasons why skin wrinkles: 

Smoking, Smoking is detrimental to the health in general, not to mention our skin as well. Tobacco impairs fibroblast formation and gives rise to his senescence. Some studies indicate that tobacco induces oxidative stress damage and inhibits the body’s antioxidant defense, which may be involved in the aging process.


A rich diet in antioxidants can slow the effects of aging on the same to avoid excessive intake of alcohol. According to the Academy, a rich intake of vegetables, olive oil and vegetables appears to protect against skin photodamage, however, a diet rich in meat, dairy products and butter seems to be harmful.

Stress and Lack of Sleep:

Stress and lack of sleep are two factors that are under consideration. The stress often affects the integrity of the skin, but there is no direct evidence that stress exacerbates aging. Regarding sleep, the Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology notes that some studies show that sleep less than five hours a night is linked to more signs of aging and a reduction in the barrier function of the epidermis.

Sun Exposure:

An incorrect or excessive exposure to the sun (including tanning beds) disruption promoting collagen fibers and elastin, because UV deteriorate and dehydrate fibroblasts.

Stress and Anxiety:

The abdominal area is very sensitive to stress and anxiety, you should be quiet or and approach life with more confidence.


There are mainly five reasons for sagging may occur in the abdomen.

Sudden Weight Loss:

Losing a significant amount of pounds removes a large volume of fat, and the skin, which has already lost elasticity due to being overweight, remains sagging or forming folds. That is why diet’s must be slow and careful, and constant weight gain and loss that damages skin tissues should be avoided.

Sedentary Lifestyle:

Lack of exercise is one of the main reasons for sagging appears early. Sedentariness causes habituation fibers skin, muscles and the body, resulting in the body both as sagging skin. Physical activity invigorates and hardens, so it is possible to reverse these consequences.


Excess adiposity produces a relaxation in skin tone. The longer this situation remains more difficult it will be to reverse, as it will not only sagging skin, but also the muscle.


Thanks to falling estrogen, fat storage begins to have a clear preference for the abdominal area, favoring the appearance of flabby belly.


During pregnancy, the skin is over-stretched, so that the collagen fibers and elastin are damaged, losing its elasticity. This makes it impossible to retract her once the woman has given birth, leaving sagging and extra skin on your abdomen.

Bad nutrition:

Lack of protein (meat and egg) and abuse of foods high in fat, sugar and flour (cookies, soda, industrial products, etc.) propitiate sagging abdomen, since the former are essential for the formation of tissues, and the latter provide a soft consistency to the belly, although there is no excess skin.
