The skin tissue of our body is always in a constant state of remodeling, however, as our body age the skin regeneration capacity significantly decreases due to the alteration in the composition of connective tissue. The production of collagen- an essential component of the skin decreases which leads to sagging of the skin, appearance of lines and loss of the skin tightness. The following are proven methods of tightening your skin.
1. Facial massage
Facial massage increases the blood circulation in your face. These circular movements that include upward and downward strokes also help delay development of fine lines and wrinkles. Regularly massage your face before going to bed and don’t forget to massage your neck because it’s more vulnerable to develop fine lines and wrinkles due to pressure impacted by your head.
2. Facial masks
Facial masks can do much to help tighten your facial skin. When employing facial mask to tighten your skin, make sure that you keep it natural, don’t use commercial facial masks. The following are some of herbal facial masks that you can use; white eggs and lemon facial mask, sandalwood facial mask, honey and milk facial mask and banana facial mask.
3. Eat healthy
Healthy eating is not only good for the internal part of your body but also the external part is also influenced by the food you eat. If you want your skin to look tight and firm, include antioxidant rich foods in your diet. This will eliminate free radical and tighten collagen in your skin. Make sure you include a lot of fruits in your healthy diet.
4. Drink enough water
Drinking enough water on a daily basis is very essential for your overall health because it helps in circulation, digestion, absorption and excretion. In addition to its many advantages, drinking enough water gives your skin radiant and a younger looking complexion. The fact that your skin is like other body organs, it also needs water to function properly. Lack of proper hydration will turn your skin dry and flaky hence less tight.
5. Regular exercise
Loosening of skin is a common problem for women especially after they have rapidly loss weight i.e. immediately after pregnancy or after dieting. In this case, regular exercising can help improve the skin tightness by developing the skin connective tissues matrix and promoting the muscle build-up. Regular exercises increases the blood flow in the skin thus rejuvenating the skins cells of the body.
