5. Build your muscle
Along with nutrition, it is important to also focus on strength training exercises to slow muscle loss while you burn fat. The skin has a layer of fat underneath - then muscular. Cardio high intensity will burn fat but also increase muscle loss.

If you burn this layer of fat under the skin while holding your muscles, you will feel firmer. By the time you reach your target weight range, you will have reduced the percentage of muscle loss compared to fat loss. This means tighter skin and better health.

6. Choose natural supplements for skin elasticity

Gelatin
Unless your daily diet consists of foods like beef tail and chicken feet, it can be difficult to get enough gelatin to maintain skin elasticity. A study at Stanford University found that adding 250 milligrams of gelatin per day improves skin elasticity.

Borage oil
The study concluded that the addition of borage seed oil in combination with gelatin appeared to demonstrate greater skin elasticity.

Collagen
Many people supplement with collagen to help with joint pain. But now collagen is becoming more popular as a treatment for aging skin. A German study showed that taking 2.5 to 5 grams of hydrolyzed collagen significantly improved elasticity after eight weeks.

7. Finally, stay well hydrated!
Staying well hydrated is essential to maintain skin elasticity. Drink plenty of water and beverages like green tea to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. When your skin is dehydrated, it affects the layers of skin by decreasing firmness, resulting in flaccid skin.

The bottom line: taut and supple skin really depends on how fast you choose to lose weight and how you maintain your weight loss. So, before going to a plastic surgeon and spending thousands of dollars, why not use the above tips and tighten your naturally sagging skin? Good luck!
