For skin to be tight, it needs collagen and elastin, which are two components of the layer of the skin called the dermis. Elastin and collagen are found just above the fat layer which lies beneath our dermis. When we begin to age, we lose these two vital components, so our skin starts to lose elasticity resulting in loose or sagging skin.
