Baggy under-eyes? Loose tummy/arm skin? I know your pain. 🙁 Loose skin knows no age and gender, and darling, you are not alone in worrying about skin tightening.
The world of skin tightening is fraught with adventure, excitement, and triumph for some people. But, if you’re not careful, it can also be full of let downs and disappointments. Basically, you have to know exactly how to treat your skin to get the results that you want from your experience.
What Causes Your Skin to Change
Knowing what causes your skin to change in the first place can often help you to stave off signs of aging. Some major factors can include just about everything your skin is exposed to for years throughout your life, like damage from the sun for instance. A lot of that is unavoidable, but some of it can be at least reduced if you go through life aware of your surroundings and how they impact your skin.
If you want to put off resorting to help from medical tools to fix your skin then you also need to understand that a lot of skin problems stem from a reduction in collagen, elastin, and other cellular building blocks, which happens naturally as we all get older. But the good news is that, just as that happens naturally, there are some natural ways to delay it.
Tightening Your Skin Through Diet and Exercise
Many people don’t realize it, but it is possible to tighten the skin a bit by exercising and eating certain food. In particular, food that are high in vitamin C like citrus fruit are great for your skin. Certain protein sources, such as nuts and fish, can also strengthen skin cells if eaten regularly over time. Of course, no matter how much you exercise or what you eat you may still find yourself needing clinical skin tightening help. If so, the good news is that you have a lot of options.
Begin with the Skin Tightening Basics
There are plenty of basic skin treatments that can be performed in clinics or even by you in your own home to reduce signs of wear and tear your skin incurs throughout the years. For example, many companies make hand-held laser or light frequency devices that you just point at the affected area and click on and off according to the directions. The goal is to get collagen within your body to regenerate, tightening skin cells and sometimes reducing the appearance of scars in the process.
Other skin tightening basics depend on where the skin is that you want to tighten. For instance, loose skin on your thighs might tighten up a lot if you simply make a point of exercising them daily. Other body parts might respond well to other types of treatment. For example, under-eye bags can often be greatly reduced by treating them with milk-soaked cotton balls.
Employ Stronger Skin Tightening Treatments When Necessary
If you find that you are well beyond the point of home remedies being helpful, you can start to look into stronger skin tightening treatments done in your local clinic. Among the options available to you are laser procedures and chemical peels. Botox injections are also popular, especially for treating facial wrinkles.
Utilize Multiple Skincare Tactics for the Best Skin Tightening Results
One final thing to think about is that no one skin tightening tactic is perfect, not even surgery. It’s best to employ multiple tactics to keep your skin as healthy as possible, especially skin that is thin or super sensitive, such as the skin on your face and neck. You can start early by using lotions, creams, and exercises to strengthen your skin. It also helps to eat a proper diet and stay hydrated. Beyond that, you should consult with your clinician or dermatologist to develop a complete skincare plan as early as possible. Make sure it is tailored to your skin type and needs, and you should soon start to see major positive changes to the texture and look of your skin.
I hope this has been helpful. Let me know if you are employing any of the methods mentioned above or share your secrets to keeping your skin tight. I’d love to know! 🙂
