Sagging skin: causes, treatment and the best product

“Dry skin is commonly used to describe aging skin that has lost elasticity, looks thinner and more fragile, often with wrinkles,” explains board-certified dermatologist, dermatologic surgeon, and founder of Spectrum Skin and Laser, Jeremy Brower, MD.

Oily skin is a normal, common skin problem that affects people of all ages (especially if you already have thin skin), and it tends to become more noticeable as you age. This is due to the natural loss of collagen that occurs with age, accumulated sun damage and increased skin dryness. (We’ll get to the reasons why in a moment, so let’s take a closer look.)

According to board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Divya Shokin, MD, FAAD, it’s most often triggered by overexposure to the sun, especially if the sticky skin starts to appear in your 20s and 30s. Shokeen notes that sticky skin starting in the mid-20s is more likely to result from long-term tanning bed use or aggressive unprotected sun exposure (i.e., regular sunbathing without SPF). Another reason to practice sun safety!

In addition, crepey skin can be associated with weight gain and loss. “It may appear earlier if your weight has fluctuated significantly, such as weight gain or loss,” adds board-certified dermatologist Purvisha Patel, MD.
