Tightening loose skin without surgery is absolutely possible. Loose skin can be caused by rapid weight loss, by aging and by a lack of both exercise and good skin nutrition.
Whatever the cause, here are five top tips for tightening loose skin while you improve your skin's health and youthful appearance – all naturally.
One of the big flavors you can do your skin is to eat more vegetables, salads, fruits, lean meats and fish.
One of the worst things we do to our skin – and overall health – is to eat a lot of starches and sugary foods. The body turns all starches (bread, cereals, potatoes) to sugar during digestion; add sweet drinks, candy or desserts, and plenty of bad things happen. You tend to get fat. Your blood sugar gets elevated. And you create a very bad thing called glycation.
Glycation happens when sugar molecules attach themselves to healthy proteins, damaging and distorting them. That's a huge cause of collagen destruction – so you lose collagen and your skin gets thin, saggy and loose. One great treatment: Cut way back on the stars and sugars. Another follows …
2. Supplements: Take an excellent supplement. It must contain a nutrient called Carnosine (not carnitine; just sounds like it), 50 mg a day or more. The tablet must be enteric-coated to prevent Carnosine from being damaged by stomach acids. Carnosine is the only known natural substance that causes and stops glycation.
3. Exercise: If you never get any exercise, you need to begin. Start gently, but build up some muscle tone and flexibility. You'll be helping your skin regain strength and elasticity as you do.
4. Skin care: Your skin needs nourishment, not just a moisturizer, in a skin cream. Look for modern ingredients that rebuild your saggy skin. One is Cynergy TK, which contains an extremely bio-available form of keratin, an essential protein in nails, hair and skin. It has been proven in clinical trials to stimulate natural collagen production in the skin, and to increase skin cell growth by 160 percent.
Your skin needs time to adjust, to repair itself, get its natural flexibility and firmness back. Your skin is not a useless, useless piece of leather. It's a living, sensitive, body organ that can heal, recover its strength and elasticity, and snug itself around your body again.
