can elasiticity and moisture and oils in the body be almost parasitically absorbed by one area of your body - to the detriment of others...?

I ask because i seem to have great deficiencies of elasticity in some parts of me - my joints and bones, are grinding and stiff and wearing away quite a lot...(yet i am hypermobile)

but i seem to have excessive amounts in others...my skin is pretty stretchy and unwrinkled at 39...
yet my skin is also very dry...but hair is very very greasy

it seems an odd mix... could my skin be 'syphoning' more than its fair share of elasticity collagen or whatever ...?

cheers

I take cod liver oil supplements, and CQ10, for the joint lubrications - what's inside seems differently sourced that the skin, mine too is dry, I get through a lot of body butter!
Some types of joint hypermobility can make you more prone to osteoarthritis , am not aware of any other thing that could explain the differences which you describe.

No.

Skin elasticity and moisture is governed by glands in the skin and are not present in any other part of the body.

The lubrication of joints is an entirely different mechanism and the fluid is different from the fluid in the skin.
Sqad is absolutely right.
