We all have our favorite beauty secrets. Lotions, potions, facial exercises and even a secret trip or two to our dermatologist each year helps us fight the aging process. Fine lines and wrinkles are one thing, but what about that loosening skin. Well, believe it or not, the recipe for tighter, brighter skin might be hiding right in your kitchen. Here are four natural ways to tighten loose skin.
1. Honey: The buzz about honey is that it is not only a natural sweetener, it is a treatment for sagging skin. Honey’s natural hydrating, antioxidant properties firm skin. Create a facial by combing three teaspoons honey, three tablespoons olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Apply to your face and neck and let dry. Rinse with warm water. Repeat two times each week and the results will amaze you.
2. Egg Whites: Egg whites are a secret weapon for fighting loosening skin. Thanks to an egg’s natural astringent components, they not only nourish the skin with vitamins, they uplift sagging skin with hydro lipids. Whisk two egg whites until they are foamy and apply to your face and neck. Rinse with cool water after about 20 minutes. Repeat two times each week for tighter, more radiant skin.
3. Lemon: This is a twist you may not have known. Lemon’s vitamin C content helps boost collagen, a building block for younger looking, glowing skin. Lemons also include astringents that help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fade dark spots and tighten the skin. Simply apply freshly squeezed lemon juice gently to your face and neck and rinse with warm water after 10 minutes. Apply your favorite moisturizer. Repeat two time each day to get the best results.
4. Water: Water is good for your body inside and out, especially for your skin. Staying hydrated with water (soft drinks, tea and juice don’t count) is the best natural weapon to firming loosening skin. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water each and every day to keep you skin moisturized, youthful and glowing. Plus water helps flush toxins from the inside of your body, too, which is imperative for healthy skin.
