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.
1. Almond oil
For people who are trying to eliminate small amounts of loose skin and keep them tight and toned, using antioxidant-rich remedies is a good choice. These have anti-aging qualities that will tighten skin, promote cell growth and make the skin look and feel younger.
2. Aloe vera
If you are suffering from any type of skin condition, aloe vera can help, including loose and sagging skin. The antioxidants and active ingredients, such as malic acid, can increase elasticity of the skin, while the soothing and anti-inflammatory properties can improve healing speed and likelihood of oxidative stress.
3. Egg whites
This remedy is particularly effective for sagging or loose neck skin, which can often happen after weight loss. Blend an egg white and 1 teaspoon of yogurt into a cream and then apply it directly to the loose skin. This works as a natural astringent, and also delivers certain lipids to the skin that can strengthen and rejuvenate it.
You can blend 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil, forming a paste or thick cream. The active ingredients in cinnamon can penetrate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen in the affected cells, speeding up the tightening process and preventing oxidative stress on those areas of skin.
5. Lemon juice
This home remedy works in two ways to counter loose skin after weight loss; the high vitamin C content is essential in the production of collagen, while the astringent nature of this citrus juice can keep the skin tight and improve its appearance.
As one of the densest sources of nutrients in our diet, this rejuvenating, antioxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory substance can definitely help with loose skin. You can also mix the honey with an astringent substance to help it tighten your skin even more!
