How To Tighten Loose Skin After Weight Loss

  1. TRY MASSAGE THERAPY:

I have a particular friend who swears her weekly massage therapy helped her tighten skin after weight loss.

She complained of sagging skin, particularly on her upper#arms and upper thighs, and is delighted to show off her non-saggy parts now.

Why not give it a go?

At best, it will help tighten your skin, at worst, you get an invigorating massage.

Massages help stimulate the blood cells and really help your skin feel much firmer!

  1. SPA WRAP:

Another friend tells me his skin was tightened when he got a seaweed wrap at a local spa, and now he goes every 6 to 8 weeks to enjoy its #benefits.

Online, I’ve found rave reviews on the local spa he frequents, and not a single negative review.

Find a spa near you and do some digging.

Yelp is a great place to start!

You can read reviews from people who have actually been there.

Seaweed isn’t the only wrap to try either, so ask the spa experts and see what would be great for skin tightening!

  1. ADD WEIGHT TRAINING:

Chances are, you used weight training to help you get to your goal weight, but if not, it’s time to add it to help tighten skin after weight loss!

If you’re worried about looking overly buff and masculine, don’t be.

Simply add weights to your workout three times a week, because building toned, lean muscle under your skin will help it look tighter… and sexier!

  1. HYDRATE YOURSELF:

Healthy skin is hydrated skin!

Adding in at least 8 glasses of water a day to your diet can make all of the difference in the world.

Hydrating yourself after a workout makes sure that your body stays hydrated.

When your body is hydrated, it comes out in your skin, makes it look glowing, and tightens it up!

  1. PRACTICE YOGA:

Yoga will help you relieve stress, be more flexible, lose weight, and can even help your skin rebound after weight loss!

The key with yoga, and any other regimen for that matter, is to start off slow.

Within a few weeks, you’ll be surprised how much more flexible you, and your skin, can be.

There are tons of yoga classes that you can take or you can even start to do it at home!

  1. RAW FOODS:

There are a lot of vitamins and nutrients that can be cooked out of foods.

To avoid that, why not add in some raw foods to your diet?

Raw foods can be anything from fruits to veggies to even fish (sushi anyone?).

Once you start to add these raw foods to your diet, you’ll see how quickly your skin tightens up!

  1. DO CALISTHENICS:

Calisthenics are great for building lean muscle, great for your heart, and they’re even great for tightening skin after weight loss!

Add a round of calisthenics to your weekly routine, three or four times a week, and enjoy the jumping jacks, push-ups, windmills, and more… they can be fun, and they’re helping your skin readjust at the same time.

  1. LEAN PROTEIN:

Adding lean protein to your diet will also help tighten skin after weight loss.

How ?

First of all, it helps build lean muscle, which will make you appear more toned (well, you WILL be more toned!).

But lean protein also contains the collagen and other nutrients your skin needs to stay elastic.

Pro-tip: consuming lean protein after a workout will help boost the muscle-building effect.
