Lines, wrinkles and sagging aren’t allowed here. Get your skin back to its rightful place of beauty. Read these 10 Tips To Tighten Up Your Skin!
Have saggy loose skin can be an embarrassing and difficult problem to fix. Your self esteem may take a hit, and we all know that how we feel is sometimes tied to how we look.
There are several reasons why you may have loose skin in the first place. Pregnancy, excess skin from weight loss, stress, and naturally getting older are all things that can have a negative impact on our skin.
You may have several different areas of the body that are affected. It could be your underarms, thighs, neck, stomach, face, bottom and more. One option is to get surgery, but there are other options as well.
Natural treatments may prove to be a better course of action, since they are less invasive; but you will have to weigh the options before deciding which direction to go:
1. Use SPF Creams To Prevent Skin Damage
Many experts will agree that preventing damage it better than treating it after the fact. Get a nice SPF 30 or higher sunscreen with UV protection, and use it on a daily basis.
If you are starting to get wrinkly skin, then get a cream that works for reducing fine lines as well.
This is a wonderful way to help tighten up your skin in areas that you’ve lost fat. The muscle will help fill in some of the loose skin, and reduce sagging. The skin will then tighten up under a better foundation.
3. Skin Firming Cream
While these don’t stop your skin from appearing loose long term, they do come in handy temporarily. You can moisturize skin that has become dry, and it will make those pesky lines less noticeable.
Collagen is the most important thing for loose skin, so find something that stimulates its production, or contains collagen or a retinoid.
4. Supplements For Tightening Skin
There isn’t a silver bullet type pill which will makes your skin problems disappear, but supplements can help tighten skin. Look for collagen supplements first, and add some vitamin C to help your body naturally produce more.
5. Weight Loss
Sometimes your skin may look like its loose because of the extra fat stored underneath. If you can shed some of this weight, the appearance may lessen.
After losing weight, you may want to concentrate on helping the skin stay elastic so it can recover and tighten.
6. Chemical Peel
Taking off the old skin layers will help your new strong skin come to the surface, effectively reducing the appearance of aging.
7. Exfoliate The Skin
Regularly removing the dead skin off our bodies helps keep the new skin showing, and increases circulation. Also, the extra activity in your skin will promote it to become tighter and healthier.
Look for a good salt scrub that you will enjoy using regularly.
8. Aloe Vera
This plant can do more than heal burns and cuts, it can also help moisturize the skin and repair it from UV damage, and aging. Get a nice clean Aloe Vera Gel and gently apply it to the affected area for 20 minutes.
9. Natural Oils
Coconut oil and olive oil both contain antioxidants that can help repair the skin, and moisturize. Massage the oil into your skin, or find a product that contains these oils, and apply.
10. Ultrasound Skin Tightening
This is a non-invasive procedure that uses concentrated heat to help stimulate collagen production underneath the skin, and also lifts and tightens the skin.
