Sagging skin sucks, especially when it is in the face and neck areas. The two main culprits behind it? It’s either a. drastic weight loss, or b. father time himself. So whether you have been counting calories or counting years, when sag strikes, before you even bother with botox, let alone succumb to surgery, why not try to lose the loose the natural and safe way?
So here are the top tips on how to tighten skin, needles and knives set aside.
When it comes to taking care of your skin and keeping it young and vibrant, there are two main rules that I can never seem to say enough.
- PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE—which actually leads to number two…
- WEAR SUNSCREEN
Remember, nothing is quite as damaging as those nasty UV rays. UV rays cause free radicals, which cause a whole lot of problems- wrinkles and sagging skin are just the scratching surface. Believe me when I say that the damage runs deeper, quite literally too. Think immune diseases, think cancer.
So make sure that you slather on sunscreen every single day. Take note, even on a gloomy day, the UV rays still come out and play. So for your regular use, something with an SPF of at least 30 should be just fine.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, DRY SKIN IS A SIN. It is the root of all wrinkles, as well as sagging skin too. So a great way to tighten skin is a daily dose of moisturizer- make that a daily DOUBLE dose. You see, you should moisturize two times a day. When you hop out of the shower in the morning and right before you hop into bed at night.
Did you know that the best time to treat your skin is actually when you are sleeping? It has been proven that the generation of new cells is up to 8 times more.
Fast asleep, faster regeneration.
And I’m talking about nothing else than good old H20, the very fountain of youth itself. You see, when it comes to keeping your skin soft and supple, aside from moisturizing every day and every night, hydrate it and begin from within.
Water also provides nutrients to your skin just as it flushes out all of the unwanted toxins too.
Hydration, nourishment, and dextox– three key factors to tightening loose skin (or even preventing it in the first place) by restoring elasticity making it, as I said, smooth and supple, with the addition of fine and firm.
Aside from what you put on your face, you should also watch what you put on your plate. Eating right is definitely essential. A skin tightening diet, so to speak, should include the following:
- Fatty acids (the good kind like Omega 3), Antioxidants, and Vitamins (especially C and E.)
Not only will these help tighten skin, but reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as give you that youthful vibrant glow altogether.
