As skin ages, it loses two important proteins manufactured in the dermis — elastin and collagen. Both elastin and collagen production decline as people age.
As its name suggests, elastin gives skin elasticity. It provides firm skin with the ability to bounce back when stretched.
Collagen is produced by fibroblasts. When skin is taut and firm, it has collagen to thank. Collagen is comprised of tightly-constructed fibers, which help skin maintain its structure and firmness.
