Nowadays, there is a sufficient amount of skincare products that could serve the purpose of tightening up loose and saggy skins. But, skincare products are not for everyone. Some women are not willing to take the risk of using an unknown product on their skin and would prefer to take a more organic and more natural approach in fixing this problem.
So, the question here is, how do we tighten our skin naturally? In this article, we will be focusing on all the natural remedies that could help us to do that.
Vitamins are really important for our skin, in so many ways. Especially, vitamin C and vitamin E, as they are the most common antioxidant ingredients that can be found in fruits and vegetables. Although it is highly recommended to get your daily vitamin dose through food, you can also take natural supplements that contain both of those vitamins together.
If you choose to use a natural skincare product, make sure it contains vitamins C and E as two of its main ingredients along with flavonoids, coenzyme Q10, and anthocyanin for better and safer results.
Exfoliation is one of the easiest things you can add to your routine, and it has such tremendous effects on the skin. However, exfoliation should only be done between 1-3 times a week, depending on the condition and sensitivity of your skin.
To exfoliate our faces, we first need to choose a mild exfoliation product. Then, you can start by applying a quarter-sized amount in circular motions to your face. Make sure to avoid the area around your eyes. During the massaging and rubbing process, you should be gentle as the product is already doing the hard work. Finally, rinse off with warm water. When done properly, exfoliation will improve your skin texture and will tighten it.
The skin around the eyes is the most sensitive and the most vulnerable area on our faces. And with the modern lifestyle, we all find ourselves looking at screens all day long every day. The outcome of this is pretty simple, eye fatigue.
Eye fatigue is a reason for a loosen and wrinkled skin around the eye, followed by dark circles. This is why it is crucial to pay attention and take care of the skin around the eye so as to avoid major complications. You can start by applying safe eye cream and massage the area on a daily basis to enhance the blood circulation.
Carefully clean your face
Cleaning your face thoroughly is the key to preventing wrinkles. It goes without saying that the polluted environment around us will cause skin problems by sticking dirt to the skin. On top of that, computer radiation will put more load on the skin and will eventually weaken it. That’s why regular cleaning is essential as it will guarantee a healthy skin without any pore blockage.
After a while, a blockage will cause unnecessary problems to the skin such as inflammations, dryness, and lack of elasticity. When picking care products to clean your face with, you should go for the gentle products so you don’t eventually irritate the skin.
Exaggerated facial expressions will cause the skin and muscles to loosen up in the long run. In fact, super tensed facial expression is considered to be one of the main causes of wrinkles’ appearance. So, it is advised to always pay attention and try not to exaggerate your facial expressions.
Pay attention to sun protection
More than 90% of the time, loose skin is caused by excessive sun exposure and ultraviolet radiation. Normally, the sun’s rays and ultraviolet radiations pass through the skin, damaging the skin cells and the skin’s natural functions. the radiations will cause the skin to lose its elasticity, leading to premature aging of the skin. The sun can also speed up the appearance of wrinkles and flabby skin.
Typically, the best precaution to be taken is using a strong sunscreen product with an SPF of 15 or higher if you’re outdoors.
Get enough sleep
Lack of sleep can reduce the hemoglobin content in our bodies, so the skin will not get the proper nutrition intake to maintain a healthy skin condition. Eventually, lack of sleep will slow down the metabolism of the skin and will accelerate the skin’s aging process. Therefore, it is recommended to sleep before 11 p.m.
There are lots of reasons why we need to exercise, but for the sake of this article, we will be talking about how exercises and working out can help tighten your skin. When you exercise, the blood circulation in your body improves as it carries more nutrients to your skin. Eventually, that will improve the production of collagen in your body, which is the main protein in the skin.
Exercising also helps to detoxify your body. When you sweat while exercising, your body is naturally getting rid of toxins, as well as improving the antioxidant capacity. It is also proven that exercise would enhance your sleeping patterns. Hence, healthier skin.
