As we grow older, we lose elasticity in our skin which can be extremely frustrating. Our skin is the largest organ in our body and the first thing people notice about our appearance. Loose skin can affect our self-esteem.
With advancements in medicine as well as tips and tricks being easier to access, there are ways to reduce the appearance of loose skin and we give you a few remedies you can start on today.
Aloe Vera Gel
Not only is aloe vera gel good for sunburns, but it is also one of the greatest remedies to improve skin elasticity. Filled with malic acid, aloe vera gel rejuvenates skin with its moisturizing properties.
Break an aloe vera leaf, extract the gel and apply it on your face for 20 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water and apply your normal moisturizer.
Egg whites are filled with the protein albumin which helps rebuild the cells in our skin. Its properties are great for improving skin’s texture and reducing sagging.
You can mix egg whites with honey or yogurt, depending on your preference. Leave the mixture on your face for 20 minutes and rinse completely with cold water. You can apply this mask two or three times a month.
Natural essential oils are packed with vitamins that are great for the body. Olive oil for example is rich in Vitamin E and Vitamin A, both of which have anti-aging properties that our skin needs.
Warm a few tablespoons of olive oil (or coconut oil, jojoba oil) and massage it into your skin for 20 to 30 minutes. If you use too much oil, wipe it off with a damp cloth.
While natural remedies are an inexpensive way of tightening skin, they can take quite a while to show results. They are great for reducing the signs of sagging, even before they start, however, they are not 100% effective.
