Loose Skin Remedies

Jan 01, 2018

When we age or lose weight, many of us have issues with areas of loose skin where our skin hangs in folds away from the bones and underlying tissue. While this is not generally a health issue per se, it can certainly be an area where we are unhappy with our physical appearance. Luckily, you can take a few steps with home remedies to tighten up and improve the look of your skin.

Improved skin tone can generally be gained with a combination of improved hydration to fill out the skin and exfoliation to slough off old, excessive, and less healthy looking layers of skin cells. Skin brushing and skin scrubs made of natural ingredients can help with the exfoliation.

You can find a number of exfoliating skin scrubs on these pages, including those that use baking soda, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, and other natural ingredients. Additionally, certain dietary supplements such as Vitamin E are good for the skin and its appearance.

I've found that if you slap under your chin with back of hand you will see results quickly

Looking way up while opening and closing the mouth will help get rid of a double chin.


How many times in a day do you it and for how long?

You can buy specific wraps that cling to your skin and with the help of cream etc. It fixes elasticity. Some lady I knew had a few chins and used this brand of "skin wraps" per say and it worked. The brand is called 'it works' or something close. A quick google of it will bring it up

I came across the cure for loose skin on the neck quite by accident! I was doing some soul searching and spent an entire day in prayer. Because I was crying I had to hold my head up- like talking directly to God. My sinuses were paining me and this position brought relief. I was praying out loud facing straight up to God. The next day I was completely SHOCKED to see that the extra skin I had accumulated over the past 50 years had almost completely disappeared! I was So thankful. Children were always pulling on my extra skin, I dreaded answering all their questions as to how I had so much skin ( I goitered in my 30's) I also figured out how to get rid of "Chicken Skin" as well ; )

Lizzi, I love your testimony about being an entire day in prayer and crying and then how the next day you saw that the extra skin you had accumulated over 50 years was almost completely gone. I just feel like that God was listening to your prayers and that He helped you. I will always keep what you wrote in my mind because it is going to help me but you say that you figured out a way to get rid of ' Chicken Skin ' could you please share that with me? I am 69 years old and have crepey skin and chicken skin on my knees. Thank you in advance Lizzi. Sincerely, Cheryl

OK, girls! Just wanted to let everyone know that after being chronically dehydrated (probably for years), then getting sick and quite acutely, critically and nearly fatally dehydrated, and then rehydrating (took almost 2 years!! ) - a lot of the sag of the breast tissue reversed itself.

It was a long time getting rehydrated but something I noticed was that, during the rehydration process, if I let it go for a few days, without buckling down and drinking plain water and taking in some sea salt - CHICKEN NECK! The breasts wouldn't noticeably sag in that short of time (I'm top heavy), but the skin of the neck...crikeys! I hadn't even noticed it, other than people saying I looked like I was getting younger during the rehydration period.

Anyway, just wanted to throw that in there and that I'm a firm believer in "Dr. Batman" (Batmanghelidj) and The Water Cure.
