What exactly happens during aging? As we age, the production of a protein in our skin called collagen starts to slow down. Since collagen is one of the most important proteins responsible for our skin’s elasticity, our skin starts to sag and lose definition. As it becomes increasing fragile, our skin starts to fold into deep wrinkles and looks puffy and bloated.
