Natural ways to tighten skin post-weight loss

Losing weight is surely an achievement in itself but having to contend with loose skin as a result of losing a great deal of weight can be disappointing. You may feel like you’ve won in one area and lost in another. So it is extremely important to be careful towards your skin post-weight loss. Here are a few valuable and effective tips by experts at VIBES HEALTHCARE, on how to tighten your skin after weight loss:
• Moisturize
Make sure you moisturize your skin enough by applying a good quality moisturizer twice a day. Moisturizing would help in keeping the skin healthy and it would accelerate the generation of new skin cells. Moisturizing also helps with minimizing wrinkles. You can even use coconut oil, as it is a natural moisturizer and has antibacterial properties to soothe the skin. It is important to keep your skin hydrated, so drink plenty of water.
Protein-rich diet
Collagen and elastin are two necessary components that keep skin plump and elastic. Protein-rich foods such as cottage cheese, milk, legumes, tofu, beans, seeds, nuts, and fish all contain collagen and elastin forming components, as well as oils to help maintain healthy skin. Include them in your diet on a regular basis.
Regular massages increase the blood circulation and help the skin to retain and regain some of its lost elasticity during the weight loss process. So indulge yourself in massages to tighten the loose skin in the affected areas. You can visit a massage parlor and ask the experts to suggest the type of massage you need.
• Sun Protection
It is important to minimize the external factors that can further damage the skin; exposure to sunlight is one of them. Make sure you save your skin from direct sunlight. The harmful rays have a potential to permanently damage your skin. Use sun-screen before stepping out of your home.
• Skin firming Products
A lot of leading cosmetic brands and clinics have exclusive range of skin tightening and skin firming products. You can pick a product keeping in mind your skin type and condition. Always consult an expert before using any skin firming product.
Weight loss has to be a win-win situation from all aspects. So follow your workout routine but at the same time ensure to follow the above mentioned tips for a firm and healthy skin.
