Excessive Face Washing Doesn't Cause Skin Laxity in a 20 Year-Old

I am sorry, but it is very unlikely that the excessive face washing you are describing has caused you to develop early skin laxity. You are young and your skin is likely in very good condition as it should be. If there is something that you see when you look in the mirror that bothers you, I would encourage you to see a board-certified dermatologist to get their opinion on what it may be, what the possible causes are, and how best to treat it. But most 20 year-olds I see and treat all day do not have loss of firmness from excessive washing, let alone anything else.
