Loss of Elasticity
Skin, the largest organ of our body shields and protects us from the damaging rays of the sun and environmental elements. The skin’s ability to stretch and then come back to normal when the need to remain stretched is gone is called skin elasticity, very much like an elastic band. Due to excessive exposure to the sun, environment, advancing age or sudden weight loss our skin loses its capacity to shrink back to its normal size giving it a leathery, weather beaten, unsightly look. Intake of supplements, targeted creams and surgery are options available to treat this condition.
