Get Rid Of Sagging Skin Naturally Using These 6 Powerful Home Remedies

Here is how to get rid of sagging skin naturally using these 6 powerful home remedies. Sagging or loose skin is usually caused by aging, that said, other factors can cause the skin to lose its elasticity prematurely. Some of those common factors are weight loss, low protein diet, dehydration, smoking, and sometimes, genetics.

Now let’s be realistic, we all know that the most effective way to get rid of sagging skin completely is through cosmetic surgery but it is just too expensive and a lot of us cat afford it.  I personally am very afraid of going under the knife and I know a lot of you are too.

This is why I have been trying the following remedies for loose skin at home and I have been seeing some good results. Although slow, it’s visible. The tip is to use these remedies consistently if you want to start seeing results.

So before we begin with the remedies, please note that a lot of people are allergic to certain ingredients, oils, and herbs without even knowing they are. I recommend always doing a skin patch test at home before using any home remedy you find on the internet on your skin.

To perform a quick skin patch test, mix your chosen remedy and apply it behind your ear or on your upper inner arm. Wait for 5 minutes to see if there is redness, a rash, swelling, or itching. If nothing happens, you can go ahead and use the remedy. If you do experience symptoms, do not use it!

1. Drink A Lot Of Water

You may be thinking about what water has to do with getting rid of sagging skin but as I mentioned above, dehydration or less water consumption can cause the skin to lose its elasticity. This is because water helps keep the skin hydrated and moist which in turn makes the skin tight and plump.

Now drinking water short-term will not get you the results you want, you need to make this lifestyle change and drink 5-8 glasses of water per day. This will keep your skin healthy, reduce toxins, and best of all, strengthen your skin and improve elasticity. 

2. Cucumber & Avocado Mask

Cucumbers are great for keeping your skin firm and restoring elasticity. This is because they contain an enzyme called elastase which prevents the breakdown of elastin in the skin. They also contain powerful antioxidants and anti-aging properties that help protect and nourish the skin.

Avocado, on the other hand, helps combat aging free radicals in the skin which keeps the skin healthy. Healthy skin produces adequate amounts of collagen and elastin. Don’t forget that avocados contain enough omega-3 fatty acids which are a form of alpha-linolenic acid.

Linolenic acid helps with all kinds of skin problems and improves skin health. Combining both ingredients and applying them to your skin 4-5 times per week will help you get rid of sagging skin naturally. Simply blend 1 cup of cucumber and 1 cup of avocado into a paste and apply it to your skin.

Leave it on for 1 hour and wash it off with warm water. Now you can also add cucumbers to your detox water, eat them daily by adding them to your salads as well. Eating half an avocado daily will also get you the same skin benefits as well.

3. Almond Oil

Almond oil is very rich in Vitamin e which is known to strengthen the skin and promote skin cell regeneration. Vitamin E also helps improve skin tone and complexion plus helps the body produce enough collagen. Collagen is necessary for tightening the skin.

Using almond oil on your skin regularly will help exfoliate your skin, remove dead skin cells and improve dry skin. Start using almond oil on your skin at least 4 times weekly to make your skin firmer. You can apply it directly to your skin or mix it with coconut oil as well. Adding almond oil to your skin creams can do wonders.

4. Workout

Although it can take months to start seeing results, you will eventually start to see some changes in your skin if you add a workout routine to your weekly schedule. Working out regularly will help remove harmful toxins from your body and skin and increases blood circulation.

It also increases your muscle mass which improves skin elasticity. Make sure to consume enough water during your workout sessions and get at least 1 hour of exercise 3-4 times per week for best results.

5. Yogurt & Honey

Yogurt is filled with healthy nutrients and proteins that can help improve the quality of your skin. Protein is needed for collagen production in the skin and as we age, our skin loses a lot of protein which causes loose skin. Eating protein-rich foods can definitely promote collagen production and reduce sagging.

Honey, on the other hand, helps keep your skin moisturized therefore, combining both ingredients will help keep your skin healthy and hydrated leading to younger and firmer skin.

6. Massage

Massaging your skin regularly helps improve blood flow and stimulate fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are cells that help produce connective tissues, such as collagen and elastin, that keep skin firm. Try massaging your skin daily or at least 3-4 times per week using natural oils such as olive oil or organic mustard oil.

Note that all of the tips and remedies in this post for sagging skin need to be done regularly or else you will not see any real results. These remedies work but you will need to practice patience and consistency. Sagging skin can be reversed and if you can afford it, I recommend getting cosmetic surgery done.
