How To Tighten Skin On Stomach?

Many women complain about loose skin after losing weight. There have been similar questions from women after giving birth. They have loose skin on their abdomen for a long time. How to tighten loose skin? The phenomenon is not that common, and this question is certainly not a fitness question, but I have some thoughts.

Besides, questions about loose skin are often asked by people who have lost weight by 35-50 lbs per month after using popular diets. For example, after the famous Dukan diet. But in the second case, I can only say, “I warned you!

How To Tighten Skin On Legs, Belly And Other Places After Weight Loss?

The first thing to do is to talk to your physician. I strongly suggest talking to a dermatologist and therapist first. As you may know, the elasticity of the skin depends on many factors:
✅ a hydration level of skin tissue
✅ the quantity and quality of collagen fibers
✅ the degree of development of the capillary network
✅ the presence of the necessary nutrients in the diet
✅ the general state of the body
✅ the presence of illnesses/diseases

You see, the firmness and elasticity of your skin depend on a whole complex of factors.

And if you have a problem with loose skin in a particular area, it shouldn’t be a surprise to you. You’ve likely been missing something in your diet, taking care of yourself, or your physical activity.

If you lost weight quickly by dieting, you broke one of the fundamental rules of healthy weight loss – no more than 2 pounds per week. To restore skin elasticity, you need to take comprehensive measures.

Here Are Some Tips On How To Tighten Loose Skin

? Increase Hydration Of Body Tissues

Everyone’s heard the advice to drink enough fluids? Then why do only a few follow it? Is it because it is just a habit of not drinking enough?

We drink a lot of coffee and tea, which decrease the level of hydration of body tissues. These drinks stimulate the increased excretion of body fluids. And we try to quench our thirst with them and tone ourselves.

You may say that this is nonsense – dehydration caused by coffee and tea is not so dangerous. But I’m not saying it’s the main factor, either. It’s just one small piece (like all of the following) that makes the big picture – inadequate hydration of body tissues, including the skin.

? Increase The Quantity And Quality Of Collagen And Other Protein Fibers In The Skin

Protein Food

Collagen and other protein fibers are the skin’s muscular support. The fewer and the weaker these fibers are, the less elastic your skin is.

Your food should be nutritious to avoid skin collagen problems. Especially pay attention to the protein content of the food. An increasing the protein amount in nutrition leads to better skin elasticity and an improved look (even with cellulite).

But my observations show that many women neglect protein products: meat, fish, chicken, believing that these make them fat. Unfortunately, they don’t understand that they gain weight for other reasons – because of excessive calories and fast carbohydrates in foods.

You can spend a lot of money on cosmetics with collagen but don’t ignore your nutrition.

? Improve Capillary Health

Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels and participate in an exchange of substances between blood and body tissues. If a capillary network in some areas of your body is less-developed, all processes there will be decelerated.

Imagine a big warehouse with only one small loading place. This facility would work very slowly because of its weak capacity. Roughly the same thing happens in your body.

To stimulate the skin capillary network, you can use all kinds of massage, physiotherapy, essential oils (in limited quantity only), etc.

There are also special training techniques that are good for stimulating capillaries development in the body, such as supersets, bodypump, trisets, circuit training.

? Improve Your Overall Body Condition

If your overall health isn’t at a satisfying level, then how can you expect your skin to be okay? After all, it is the largest organ of the body. As soon as you strengthen and develop your body and increase your immune system through exercise, mental work, and sensible nutrition, you will shortly notice positive changes in your skin as well.

Final Words

In general, do at least what is obvious for you and use my recommendations. That is quite enough for a good effect on your loose skin. Also there are vitamins, free radicals, cosmetics, home remedies, and other things affecting skin conditions, but let’s talk about them next time or in the comments below.
