Age is supposed to bring wisdom, strength, and security. Unfortunately, it also brings wrinkles, stretch marks, and sagging skin. Nature can be pretty unfair that way. As you age, your skin naturally loses elasticity. This leads to saggy, wrinkled skin all over your body.
However, you can fight back. These easy home remedies use natural ingredients to boost your skin’s production of elastin and collagen. Try one or more of these remedies on your problem areas.
1. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a natural remedy for many skin disorders and problems. It can naturally tighten and tone the skin, decreasing the appearance of sagginess. Simply apply fresh aloe vera gel to the skin and rub it in gently. Repeat daily. You can use bottled aloe vera gel for this, but fresh gel from your own aloe vera plant may have better results.
2. Rose Water
Like many of the other ingredients on this list, rose water is naturally astringent. It can tighten skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores. Before going to bed, simply rinse your face with rose water. Leave it on overnight and wash off in the morning.
3. Lemon Juice
Young-looking skin is characterized by brightness and smoothness. Lemon juice can help you in both of these areas. Every day, you can take the juice of one lemon and apply it to your skin. Allow it to dry and then rinse off.
4. Egg Whites
If you have ever seen how egg whites tighten up when they are whipped, then you know that they can help loose or saggy skin. Just separate two egg whites and whisk them until they become foamy. Use them as a skin mask until they harden. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
If your skin needs more collagen, cinnamon may be the answer. Create a paste by mixing equal parts cinnamon and turmeric. Create a paste with olive oil and add a pinch of sugar. Use this as a scrub and wash off with warm water.
Bright red strawberries are full of the nutrients that your skin needs to stay youthful and healthy. Strawberries can easily be mixed with yogurt and honey to create a paste; just mash the strawberries first. Use the mixture as a face mask once daily until your skin starts to feel rejuvenated.
Protect Your Skin
If you are working this hard to return your skin to its youthful state, it is important to prevent further damage to your skin. Make sure to use a gentle wash and moisturizer every day. Whenever you go outside, it is important to use sunscreen. Even a short period of sun exposure can cause your skin to lose elasticity and start wrinkling.
Saggy skin is part of aging, but you don’t have to put up with it. The natural remedies provided by nature can help you enjoy the beautiful skin you deserve to have. Just add one or two of these remedies into your beauty routine until you find ones that work for you and your skin.
