Loose Skin Remedies

Apr 08, 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.

Home Remedies for Loose Skin

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

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

Can anyone help with this problem. My skin is becoming loose everyday. So many wrinkles on hand, face and neck. My skin is super dry and very dull. Tried, aloevera fresh, sesame oil, olive oil, coconut oil, store bought creams, but my skin does not absorb, at least I do not see any difference. Because of my boneloss in jaw, my cheeks look so drop down and I am looking very very old. Can anyone help me suggesting how do I make my skin absorb some moisture. My eyebrow and eyelids are also look very dropped down

The skin of my face is so much better since I stopped putting cream or oil above. I do not wash even anymore my face every day. Sometimes I cross a little cold water above (never hot) without rubbing. So the natural layer of sebum which maintains the hydration is protected.

It is necessary to wait 3 in 4 week before the skin rebalances and can work alone.

I'd begin to do it when I noticed that 60-year-old friend had less wrinkle than me (I'm 38! ). She told me that her secret was to never put anything on her skin.

My skin was enormously degraded these last years and read I put natural and expensives creams more that was worse. Now my skin is always hydrated and it apparently re-tautened. I believe that the skin simply needs that it is left in peace contrary the advertising executives of cosmetics try to persuade us.
I hope that it will help you.

(sorry for the bad english)

Saggy skin and droopy eyelids can be caused by a deficiency of trace minerals. I began having saggy eyelids in my late 40's. At some point in my 50's I began taking trace minerals in a liquid form by mouth and one of the first things I noticed was my eyelids became tighter. I cannot remember how long it took, but it was not all that long, maybe a few months.

I wanted to add that taking powdered gelatin/collagen daily in my hot tea has noticably lessened the lines around my mouth. The label suggests taking 4 tablespoons per day and I have gotten good results taking only 1 tablespoon per day.

A dramatic difference you can make in your skin's appearance in just a week or so is to eat sardines daily. I am not a big fish eater so I had to disguise my sardines when I was adding them to my diet. You can drain your sardines and add them to tomato sauce over your pasta; mash them up and add mayo or shrimp sauce or texas pete; or my favorite...cut up an avocado and place in a bowl, place your mashed sardines beside the avocado chunks, pour a little lime juice over both, shake a generous portion dried (or fresh) cilantro on top and eat with tortilla chips. Very good. I try to eat them 3 or 4 times per week. Your joints will like them, too.

One more thing...reading the posts here at Earth Clinic by P. Raghavan has inspired me to buy kefir grains and make my own daily milk kefir. Drinking just one cup per day gives the skin a healthy glow. It is so easy to make and requires minimal time. The little grains grow and multiply so you will either need to give the extra grains away to a friend, feed them to your pet, or don't be afraid to eat the extra grains yourself. They will add even more glow to your skin. I like them with kefir poured over the top and sprinkled with cinnamon. I don't know that it will help with sagging skin but it is doing something in my body that my skin likes. Also anti-inflammatory for the joints and throughout the body. Thanks so much, P. Raghavan!

Dear Sandy,

I was pondering if your skin issue is related to your teeth issue, which you have mentioned previously in another thread.

Anon mentions that trace minerals and collagen may help.

And those things may help your teeth.

If your body is lacking minerals or other nutrients, your skin AND teeth will suffer. If your body is not absorbing well, that could affect your skin and teeth.

Bone broth may be helpful for your skin and teeth as they contain the particular building blocks needed for bones and skin. Bone broth is also supposed to be healing to the gut.

How is your digestion? If it moves too fast or too slow (especially too fast, I.e. diarrhea) your body does not have time to absorb as many nutrients as it might otherwise.

Where can I buy trace minerals in liquid? If brand name is allowed to mention here, please do. Thanks a lot.

The liquid mineral solution I took is made from dead sea minerals in a solution of lactobacillus paracasei, curvatus and acidophilus and is living minerals probiotic. The way it is made makes it easy for the body to absorb.

Being that you are in the Philippines, you may benefit more from the mineral profile native to your island(s) and to you. Try local salt and add that to filtered water. My Tawo friend gave me some salt from her island, it's grey and filled with trace minerals. Otherwise, try an import that if from US, has the minerals of the Great Salt Lake dissolved in water, an ocean and lots of land mass away from you - totally different mineral profile. Best to you.

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.
