Loose Skin Remedies

Aug 01, 2016

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

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.
