As we grow older, our skin develops changes: changes which are not improvements. The elastin that allows your skin to tighten up after you lose weight as a young person slowly disappears. The other protein that maintains the structure of the skin is collagen and that, too, decreases as we age. Your skin begins to sag. Sometimes fat deposits that make your neck firmer and your eyes look young also diminish.
In those areas where the skin is loose, especially in the neck and around the eyes, the skin droops. Loss of fat around the eyeball causes a sunken appearance to the eyes. Sometimes the upper eyelids sag so severely that people have trouble seeing. Most people do not have such a severe problem, but the droopiness of the eyelids makes the eyes look smaller and older.
