Why the aged skin loose, sagging and face drooping? How to tighten the skin and lift the face naturally?

Collagens are a hard, insoluble, and fibrous protein. They are strong and flexible contributing to skin strength and elasticity. In the middle layer of skin, collagen helps form a fibrous network of cells called fibroblasts for new cells growing and replacing dead skin cells. Collagen production declines with age especially after menopause and exposure to factors such as smoking and UV light. If the skin produces less collagen, the integrity of the skin declines, as a result the skin is looser and sagging; face is drooping. What damages collagen and how? High sugar: high sugar increases blood sugar attaching to the proteins to form new molecules called advanced glycation end products (AGEs) which can make collagen dry, fragile ad weak. Smoking: chemicals in the tobacco can damage collagens in the skin. Sun exposure and UV light: UV light make collagen breaking down quickly and damaging collagen fibers. UV light also damage the skin collagen synthesis forming wrinkles. Aging: With aging
