Loose and saggy skin is a major drawback of losing weight. If you’ve already begun to notice that your skin is sagging after weight loss, try these natural remedies to tighten it up.
Give yourself a body massage
A full body massage with olive oil or coconut oil stimulates your CELLS and helps tighten your skin. It improves the blood circulation around the area of the saggy skin. This in turn helps the tissues and muscles under the skin to tighten up.
Drinking water is vital for all your organs, including your skin. Water helps improve the skin’s elasticity, thus keeping it supple and tight.
Try weight training
Cardio exercises are an effective way to burn calories, but weight training is what really helps build and tone your muscles. Exercises like weight lifting create new muscle fibres which tighten up skin that would have sagged otherwise.
Eat plenty of fruits and veggies
Fruits and vegetables are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and water content that help nourish your skin. Switch your junk food with such natural nutrient-rich food. This will not only improve your skin texture and complexion, but will also aid in weight loss.
A good vitamin E and collagen-rich moisturiser will also benefit your skin. Moisturise your skin daily to help keep it tight.
Add more abs toning exercise
Exercise your abs for a flat belly. These abs toning exercises will also help tighten saggy skin around your abdomen.
