The best thing about it is that you do not have to go under the knife just to bring back the firmness, hydration, and elasticity of your skin! Want to know how to restore your skin to its former glory? Here are the ways:
Natural Home Remedies for Tightening Skin:
They say that the best things in life are free (or cheap!) so let us start with the natural home remedies for tightening skin –
1) Apple cider vinegar face mask
Many people claim that apple cider vinegar is one of nature’s best gift to us and we could not agree more! This is because this vinegar offers plenty of benefits not just to our health but our skin as well!
This vinegar contains alpha hydroxyl acids that can lift dead skin cells and unravel a new and fresher-looking layer of skin underneath.
Mix ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar with ½ cup of water. Apply it to your face and other affected areas. Let it soak for a while, or you can soak apple cider vinegar on face overnight. Afterwards, wash it off, pat dry then put on moisturizer.
2) Egg White Mask
Eggs are rich in protein which can aid in repairing damaged skin cells and promote the regrowth of skin cells. As a result, your dry and saggy skin will look glowing and youthful. This mask is also prepared with the use of honey which can replenish and seal in moisture into the skin.
Beat egg white then add 2 tablespoons of honey. Apply the resulting mask using upward strokes in your face and neck. Let it stay on your skin for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it off afterward. Use this treatment once a week for best results.
3) Skincare Tricks
If you are fond of using skin care products, then you will be happy to know that there are plenty of skin care tricks that can help lift dead skin cells and pave the way for tighter, firmer, and more hydrated skin.
Use a moisturizer that contains exfoliates
If your skin is feeling a bit saggy and it features red bumps and flakes on various parts, you would need to use a pharmaceutical- strength skin care product that contains exfoliates like lactic acid or ammonium lactate.
These exfoliating agents can remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, allowing the moisturizing ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin, restoring the skin’s hydration, firmness, and elasticity.
Use a skin care brush.
Today, there are available types of facial brushes that can make exfoliation as easy as possible. You can find manual and electric skincare brushes that are designed to lift away dead cells and flaky skin and leave the skin glowing and tighter.
Keep in mind that when choosing a brush, opt for the one that is designed for the face because the skin in the facial area is much more sensitive than the skin in different parts of the body. In addition to that, you should also avoid using the brushes too often and hard as it may cause unwanted skin irritation when used inappropriately.
4) Dermatologist Treatments:
If your skin is already severely dry, saggy, and flaky, then it is about time that you let the professionals take over. There are now plenty of dermatologist treatments that can help lift dry skin and keep it firm for as long as possible.
Here are some of them:
In some clinics, many experts refer to this as Dermaplanning. This is done manually by an expert skin care professional. Using a scalpel, the professional carefully scrape off the single layer of dead skin to reveal a new layer of skin that is much more hydrated and healthier. Aside from people with severely dry and saggy skin, this treatment is also recommended for people who want to get rid of acne scars as well as facial hair.
This is one of the most popular ways on how to lift dry and dead skin cells and keep the skin looking tight and healthy. For this treatment, a chemical solution is used in removing the layers of dead and dry skin cells. Some of the most commonly used chemicals for this procedure are trichloroacetic acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid or Phenol.
After the treatment, the skin will peel for seven to 14 days. Once the layer of damaged skin cells has been completely peeled off, you can see that your skin is more glowing and healthier looking.
Experts recommend that you do this treatment at least once a month during the winter and fall season. During spring, it should be done only once every other month. However, you should avoid having chemical peels during the summer season as the sun exposure may cause added damage to your skin.
In addition to treating dry and saggy skin, chemical peels are also recommended for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and hyper pigmentation.
Dry and saggy skin is every woman’s worst enemy. That is why it is always important for us to ensure that our skin is moisturized and firm all throughout the day. Be reminded that prevention is always better than cure so you should make it a point to apply moisturizer two times a day. Exfoliating at least twice to thrice a week is also one good way to promote skin rejuvenation and skin cell growth so you can avoid possible dehydration and moisture loss.
