7 Ways to Tighten Skin Flabby After Weight Loss (Part 1) :

7 Ways to Tighten Skin Flabby After Weight Loss
Here are seven things you can do to help firm your skin faster after weight loss:

1. Don't lose weight too quickly
It is natural that most people want quick results from dieting. Let's face it, quick results motivate us to move forward. But with an extreme diet often comes an extreme loss of fat and muscle. People who lose a lot of weight are often left dissatisfied with their bodies. Of course, the fat is gone, but all that skin is still lying around.

That said, everyone who loses a significant amount of weight struggles with excessive loose skin, according to experts. Some people can lose more than 100 pounds and their skin is still tight. Yet others are left with flaps in areas such as the belly and arms.

Soft skin can happen with weight loss due to diet and exercise. But it seems to occur more often after weight loss surgery, such as bariatric surgery. Slower and more gradual weight loss allows the skin's elasticity to recover more easily and decrease when fat is lost. But when too much loss is too rapid, the skin's elasticity does not have time to recover.

2. Don't smoke!
More than ever, you need to quit smoking! We now know too well that smoking kills. It can be hard to give up this bad habit, but if you're not afraid of dying from cancer, think about your skin. Smoking will ruin him! Not only does it accelerate the skin's aging process, it also reduces vitamin A and skin moisture, causing elasticity degradation.

However, quitting smoking really rejuvenates the skin, according to a study by the International Association of Ecological Dermatology. Researchers analyzed the skin of 64 women smokers to determine lines, vascular and pigment status, elasticity, luminosity and texture. Before leaving, smoke the skin for nine years. But after quitting smoking for nine months, researchers found that women's biological skin age decreased by 13 years!

3. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables
I hope that, after losing that weight, you stick to a maintenance plan that includes eating lots of fruits and vegetables. But if you are not, then consider this. Your skin is a living organ and needs a wide variety of nutrients to stay healthy and elastic.

In fact, a European study showed that eating fruits and vegetables - especially those rich in carotenoids like sweet potatoes, green vegetables, carrots and tomatoes - has a measurable and beneficial effect on skin appearance within six weeks.

4. Eat appropriate amounts of protein
Two ingredients necessary to maintain the rebounded and elastic skin are collagen and elastin. Protein-rich foods such as chicken breast, eggs, lean beef, tofu, nuts, legumes, seeds and fish all contain components that form collagen and elastin. How much protein you need depends on your weight and lifestyle. You can calculate your protein intake using this calculator.
