Let’s face it: Sagging’s only cute if you’re a Shar-Pei dog.


For most of us, our jangly jowls and hanging cheeks are a source of chagrin as we age. Here, five myths and facts about sagging face, plus ways to stop the droop:


Sagging Face Myth #1 – Running causes your face to sag


FALSE. Sagging skin is due to two age-related reasons: loss of collagen, which gives skin its elasticity, and loss of facial fat, the absence of which causes skin to droop.


While your whole body bounces up and down while you’re jogging, it is highly unlikely that you’re jostling around enough to damage collagen, points out Las Vegas-based plastic surgeon Michael Edwards, MD, president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.


A more likely cause? Long hours exercising outdoors equals more UV exposure, which over time breaks collagen down. Make sure you slather up with plenty of sunscreen before venturing outside, even in colder weather.


Sagging Face Myth #2 – Sleeping on your stomach causes sagging


FALSE. Your sleep position won’t actually cause sagging, but it can lead to sleep wrinkles: those creases and fine lines you see each AM in your bathroom mirror. They’re caused by your pillow tugging at delicate facial skin as you sleep.


When you’re younger, it is not an issue, as fresh, elastic skin bounces back easily, but as you age, skin becomes less resilient and can settle into these lines. Your best way to avoid this is to sleep on your back, says Dr. Edwards.


Some studies have found sleepers switch positions 11 times a night on average. But if you’re a die-hard tummy sleeper or flip flop through the night. you can try the Juverest, a so-called sleep wrinkle pillow.


This specially formulated pillow has a head cradle to encourage back sleep and graded steps to minimize contact between your face and the pillow if you do roll over onto your side.


Sagging Face Myth #3 – You can do facial exercises to reduce skin sagging


TRUE! But with a catch. They increase the size of facial muscles, which, while theoretically taking away some of the slacking skin, also causes expression lines, points out Dr. Edwards.


So while a few workout moves might help relieve basset hound-like eyes, they’ll probably also worsen crow’s feet. If you’re not opposed to getting some help from a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, you may get better results from Botox.


Sagging Face Myth #4 – Weight loss causes skin sagging  


TRUE. When you gain weight, the skin on your face stretches to go along with your extra padding, just like it does everywhere else. But if you’ve finally lost it, you may notice that you’re sporting under eye bags and a slack jaw.


As you age and your skin loses elasticity, when you stretch it out it won’t bounce back the same way it did when you were younger, explains Dr. Edwards. But don’t despair: products like Retin-A can help, as can injectable fillers such as Voluma.


Sagging Face Myth #5 – There are products that may help fight sagging skin


TRUE. You can slow down the sag from the outside in: Try topical products like over-the-counter retinols or prescription retinoids, which boost collagen production, and vitamin C serums, which help restore elasticity, advises Dr. Edwards.


In one study, a daily supplement of pycnogenol, a French pine bark extract, increased skin elasticity and hydration and increased production of hyaluronic acid, a skin plumping ingredient, by 44%, according to a 2012 German study (which was funded by the maker of the raw material used in the supplements).

Smoking tobacco products such as cigarettes and cigars is one of the most common causes of bad breath, also known as halitosis. Smoking creates harsh, dry conditions in the mouth by limiting saliva, which is responsible for cleaning small odor-causing particles of food and bacteria from your mouth.


With limited saliva production and toxic chemicals regularly deposited in your mouth, bad breath can continue for many years and may progressively worsen.

The most immediate way that smoking causes bad breath is by depositing toxic smoke particles in your throat and lungs. Tobacco-smoke chemicals and additives can remain in the mouth for long periods of time, contributing to other secondary causes of bad breath.


Research has been conducted to determine which components of tobacco smoke cause such an unpleasant odor. Reviews discovered that tobacco smoke possesses over 60 aromatic hydrocarbons, most of which are linked with cancer in addition to creating a bad smell. Smoking as little as one-half of a cigar can leave these smelly deposits in saliva.

In addition to making your breath smell unpleasant, smoking can also stain your gums and teeth and lessen your sense of taste. Over time, smoking can leave teeth with a thick coating of tartar. To make matters worse, smoking also increases the risk of developing gum disease, which can exacerbate bad breath and damage gums.

Bad breath can be an early sign of oral cancer, which is especially a concern for those who smoke, as tobacco use is the top risk factor for developing oral cancer. The best way to reduce your risk of cancer and to limit bad breath is to stop smoking or using other tobacco products.


Stopping smoking will lower your risk of gum disease and dental stains, and it will also help restore healthy saliva flow to cleanse your mouth more regularly.


To promote better oral health, see your dentist regularly and follow a comprehensive oral-hygiene routine of flossing and brushing after every meal.
