As we age, our skin begins to show signs of aging. It begins to lose its natural elasticity, which leads to sagging. Flaccidity of the skin is a natural process and is irreversible, but it can be reduced and delayed. Often, people opt for cosmetic surgeries that are very costly and have side effects.
Fortunately, there are some home remedies to tighten the skin. They are simple and easy and also work effectively to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Before we delve into the various home remedies, let us understand the reasons your skin is loose and loose.
Collagen is naturally produced in your body (and can be injected artificially by a plastic surgeon) to help your skin firm and regain some of its elasticity. To increase your collagen levels naturally, your body needs to take in plenty of vitamin C, which is exactly what lemons offer. This method will also help you keep wrinkles away, which is a good added bonus.
To use the lemon on the skin, squeeze some juice from the fruit itself. Rub in problem areas and let stand for about 10 minutes. You will have to do this up to three times a day to see the maximum results. If desired, you can also mix water with lemon juice and let it dry on problem areas.
Strawberries work as astringents on the skin, and they are 100% natural. They provide your skin with abundant minerals too. Any fruit with these properties helps to harden the skin. So, go ahead and enjoy a refreshing facial mask made from freshly ground strawberries.
Cucumbers are used all the time in spas. When you get a facial, your beautician will usually give you two patches in the form of cucumber slices. This ancient method has been successful for many because of the moisturizing properties found in each slice of cucumber, which squeezes the skin and removes dark circles around the eyes.
There is another trick in addition to putting slices of cucumber in your eyes which is even more effective. Put a cucumber in a blender to produce more juice. Rub this juice in any area where your skin is falling, and let it sit there until it is dry. Rinse the cucumber with water, repeating this process once a day.
Again, we have a stinky recipe to treat your sagging skin, but it sure works. Try it to believe it! Beat an egg white with a few drops of lemon until light and frothy. Apply this facial mask and leave it on for 15 minutes and wash it. This is an instant skin tightening mask that is also very affordable.
Honey is also a great antioxidant that helps moisturize the skin, and can take years off your face. Also, it has a great smell (but be careful not to attract any bear). The use of honey on your skin will leave you looking much younger in no time. Giving it a natural glow will make you appear as if you just left the beach. You do not have to foam on honey, either, to get the full effect.
You only need two teaspoons of honey to start, adding a couple of dabs of olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Stir all these together in a small bowl until you have a good serum, then rub in the skin and let it dry. Once it dries, rinse the viscosity with water, but make sure it is hot. For fast results, use this method up to twice a day.
