Home remedies for tightening loose, saggy skin
- Avocado and nuts-foods
They are rich in vitamin E which is useful for the generation of collagen. Besides eating foods rich in vitamin E, you should apply a blend of squashed avocado and olive oil onto the saggy skin as a lotion.
Vitamin C that is found in lemon supports collagen creation which reestablishes the saggy skin elasticity. In addition, lemon has the power to tighten saggy skin and diminish wrinkles.
Squeeze a lemon and rub the juice on the face. You should leave it for 5 minutes and after that, by using cold water you should wash your face. Apply the lemon juice a few times every day and afterward always apply moisturizer.
Also, you can mix lemon juice (from ½ lemon) with cold water. Apply this blend on your clean face. Leave the blend to dry by itself. For optimal results, you should do this twice a day.
- Oatmeal and egg white
Whisk egg whites, and mix them with oatmeal and honey. Apply the mixture directly on the face. Let the mixture stay for 10 minutes and afterward wash your face using lukewarm water.
Mash a banana and apply it to your face. Leave it for 20 minutes and wash it with cold water. This is good for boosting collagen creation. You should try a banana mask by blending 1 banana with ¼ cup whipping cream, and 1 vitamin E capsule.
- Aloe Vera and cucumber
Blend one peeled cucumber with 2 tbsp. Aloe Vera. Apply the face mask and let it stay on for 30 minutes. Wash it with warm water afterward. Aloe Vera is particularly powerful because its antioxidant properties make it great for tightening saggy skin, reducing wrinkles and shrinking pores.
