Just like how the skin on our face becomes loose and saggy from a loss of elasticity and collagen, the skin on our legs does the same, and the knees (kninkles) are no exception. The knees take on a lot of stress because they are a weight-bearing area and they have to bend, so the skin is constantly stretching. This, along with aging, sun exposure and volume loss, can lead to loose skin.” Sagginess can also be attributed to a lack of hydration, which is why it’s important to keep your skin moisturized, as well as protected from the sun.
Collagen and elastin are proteins that keep skin smooth and wrinkle free, the hallmarks of healthy and youthful looking skin. Unfortunately, these proteins are broken down over time by aging, hormone changes, weight loss, sun damage and exposure to toxins. As these proteins weaken, we notice more wrinkles, frown lines, and sagging skin.
