How Do You Tighten Loose Skin After Weight Loss?

Losing weight can be a hard task in itself, after all that sweat and tears, you have finally reached your goal and yet there is one issue that you just cannot get over – your excess skin.

If you are in this position and in desperate need of help, then this is the article for you.

Excess skin usually occurs when you lose weight in quite a short amount of time. When this dramatic weight loss occurs, you usually find that the skin around your face, tummy, tops of your arms and thighs tends to lose its elasticity and sag. Not only can this knock your self-esteem but it can also cause painful rashes and infections. Having excess skin can not only effect you physically but it can also be a constant reminder of your previous weight gain and can affect your day to day life. Even though, (of course) prevention is the best way to avoid loose skin, however there are many things that can help you with this annoying side effect of weight loss.

What Can I Do?

  • I know it sounds strange, but one way to help tighten your loose skin is by brushing your body daily. Either by using a soft bristled body brush or a loofah, brushing your body thoroughly, stimulates your skin cells and can help to remove the dead skin cells which are just sitting on the surface of your skin. By getting rid of those dead/useless skin cells and stimulating the regrowth of the cells, you are promoting and encouraging your body to regenerate and repair the skin.

  • Try to avoid over the counter pills, lotions, gels and creams. These products claim that they tighten the skin but they are nearly always a total waste of money and do nothing for tightening your skin.
  • Eat A LOT of lean protein. Protein is the foundation of your body and your body needs quite a lot of it in order to repair and rebuild.
  • Drink plenty of water. Drinking a lot of water can help increase skin elasticity and can help it go back to its original position.
  • Don’t stop exercising. Even though you may have reached your goal weight and look fabulous (in clothes) sometimes it is possible to ‘fill up’ the excess space within the skin, with muscle.

  • Finally, if you cannot find a solution to your excess skin problem, then ‘Nuriss Exilis Skin Tightening Treatment’ could be the option for you.
