Many women dream of los­ing weight quick­ly. How­ev­er, a sharp weight loss has one very unpleas­ant con­se­quence — sag­gy skin.

The fact is that in the process of rapid weight loss, the skin los­es its elas­tic­i­ty and firm­ness — our skin sim­ply does not have time to adapt to new body shapes. Most often, this scourge affects the chest, but­tocks, abdomen and inner thighs. The con­se­quences of rapid weight loss are also giv­en out by the hands — the skin on them often sags.

To get rid of all these unpleas­ant con­se­quences of sud­den weight loss, some­one goes to the plas­tic surgery clin­ic, but there are also sev­er­al sim­ple and non-trau­mat­ic meth­ods.

Skin hydra­tion

First of all, the reg­u­lar use of firm­ing and mois­tur­iz­ing prod­ucts will help to tight­en flab­by and sag­ging skin. When choos­ing a cream, lotion or milk with a mois­tur­iz­ing effect, you need to pay atten­tion to com­po­nents that can increase the pro­duc­tion of col­la­gen and elastin in the skin. Vit­a­mins A and E, aloe vera extract and oth­er plant com­po­nents includ­ed in the cos­met­ic prod­uct help to increase skin elas­tic­i­ty.

Skin renew­al

Reg­u­lar use of cos­met­ics with an exfo­li­at­ing effect is also great for tight­en­ing sag­ging skin. Scrubs improve blood cir­cu­la­tion, help reduce puffi­ness and increase skin elas­tic­i­ty and firm­ness. To quick­ly get rid of loose skin, you can use scrubs more than 2 times a week. The ide­al solu­tion would be to pre­pare home­made scrubs from nat­ur­al prod­ucts.

Prop­er nutri­tion

Sit­ting on a strict diet, women often deprive their bod­ies of many use­ful sub­stances. In this case, the skin may suf­fer from a lack of pro­tein, the use of which is pro­hib­it­ed in many diets. There­fore, in order not to gain extra pounds, but to get the pro­tein that the body needs so much, the prod­ucts con­tain­ing it should be con­sumed in the morn­ing, ide­al­ly dur­ing break­fast. Nuts, dairy prod­ucts and fish con­tain enough pro­tein for the body and help improve the pro­duc­tion of elastin and col­la­gen. The tan­dem “rea­son­able train­ing + healthy nutri­tion” will help keep the body youth­ful and slim, and the skin — firm­ness and elas­tic­i­ty.


Mas­sage is con­sid­ered one of the most effec­tive ways to give the skin firm­ness and elas­tic­i­ty. In addi­tion, a course of mas­sage will remark­ably fix the effect after a diet, improve blood cir­cu­la­tion and skin res­pi­ra­tion, and pro­vide the skin with bet­ter nutri­tion. In addi­tion, mas­sage has a ben­e­fi­cial effect on the state of the cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem.
