What is the #skin elasticity?

The cells responsible of the #skinelasticity are the #fibroblasts that produce basic substances such as #collagen and #elastin. Collagen fibers have the main task of giving support and resistance to our skin. The elastin fibers, instead, subjected to a stretching and contraction force, can return to the original shape, giving the skin the characteristic elastic response to mechanical stimuli. With the advancing of the #age, the skin elasticity decreases. The main physiological causes of the loss of skin elasticity are: #aging, #pregnancies, sudden weight changes and bad lifestyles. In all these cases the structure of the dermal reticulum progressively loses its elastic capacity, with the appearance of sagging skin and stretch mark.
icoone® activity on #fibroblasts creates the enhancing on #natural metabolism with the production of #collagen and #elastin and improving #skin elasticity and compactness.
