skin elasticity
Curious,
Is it my age, or thyroid, or female hormones. Help, I am getting jowls, my face is sagging......well the rest of me too, but I can hide that.

Will it tighten back up again, anyone experience this?

Hi...from what I hear it's the collagen we all begin to lose ... not sure on the thyroid though.

You don't say if you already have a thryoid disorder or if you are in the menopause. I have both and one of the strongest things that's happened if the state of my skin including my face, it's so dry and crackly. I look so haggard. So it could be either of these conditions if you have them, or think you might have them.

Yes! We'll probably end up looking like dried prunes with jowls. LOL! Have you tried HRT if so what do you think of it?

No, haven't tried HRT recently. Hope to get my thyroid working and in a better place. I have swithced to Armour after being on Synthroid for 20 years. I have read  getting thryroid levels good can help balance out the other sex hormones.

What about you?
