Tighten Your Skin

Saggy skin can be a common problem after losing weight or after pregnancy. But don’t worry, there’s a lot you can do about it. We show you the best ways to tighten your skin without surgery!


 #1: Don’t Lose Weight Too Quickly

Crash diets can rapidly shed both muscle and fat, and result in a greater amount of loose skin. Aim for no more than 1-2 pounds of fat loss per week, and include weight training so you build muscle to help stretch the skin.


 #2: Dry brushing and exfoliating

Exfoliating your skin does much more than just removing dead skin cells. It also stimulates blood circulation in the area so that your skin gets the vital nutrients and oxygen it needs to renew itself. Dry brushing is an excellent exfoliation technique. Mineral and salt scrubs are also great for tightening your skin.


 #3: Skin Care

If you want to avoid store creams, consider using pure castor oil or pure aloe vera on your skin. Castor oil acts as a lubricant and prevents dry skin. It is considered as one of the most effective ingredients to tighten the loose skin. You can also choose lotions that are full of Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Collagen, which are needed to tighten the skin.


 #4: Hydrate

Healthy skin is hydrated skin! Drinking plenty of water is a crucial component of maintaining skin elasticity. When your body is hydrated, it comes out in your skin, makes it look glowing, and tightens it up.


 #5: Eat right

Eat protein rich foods like fish, chicken, eggs, legumes, tofu, beans, seeds, nuts (they all contain collagen and elastin forming components), as well as healthy oils, fruits and veggies to help maintain healthy skin.


 #6:  Strength Training

Maintaining or increasing muscle tissue is the key to minimizing loose skin. Exercise can tighten and add muscle to your abdomen, which can help minimize flabbiness.


#7: Don’t tan

You might think it makes your skin look smoother and healthier, but it doesn’t. The tanning process is horrible for your skin, especially when you’re using a tanning bed to boost your melanin. Avoid too much sun exposure and you’ll see your skin tighten more quickly, plus you’ll also avoid a greater risk of skin cancer.


 #8: Don’t smoke

Smoking damages your skin very badly and results in dry, leathery looking skin, premature deep lines, saggy skin and wrinkles.


Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
