3 Ways to Avoid Loose Skin after Weight Loss

How frustrating is it that after pouring so much effort into losing weight for a healthier body, you end up with loose skin instead? Maximize the effects of your hard work by following these simple tips:

Ease Up on the Speed of Weight Loss
If you are still trying to lose weight when you notice that you are developing sagging skin, then it would be advisable to ease up on the weight loss plan a little. Losing too much weight too quickly is not good for you anyway and, if you lose it more gradually, your skin will have more of a chance to adapt to your new size. Source: BeautyAndTips

Build Muscle
Strength training is a good addition to your regimen. It helps build muscle below that layer of skin, giving it a much tighter appearance. The other advantage with this approach to weight loss is that you swap the fat stored beneath your skin to muscle. So the sagging will be less, and you will have higher muscle to fat ratio than before, helping you burn more calories and lose more weight. While you may not fully replace the fat with muscle, it will help make the task of dealing with sagging skin less of an uphill battle.1 Source: CureJoy

Take Supplements
The skin’s elasticity depends on collagen, a protein that strengthens the tendons and makes the skin smooth and firm. With age, the collagen production decreases. This can also happen due to alcohol intake, smoking, not eating right, less sleep, and exposure to sun and pollution. The only way to make up for the loss is by taking vitamin supplements. Vitamins A, C, E, K, and B-complex will nourish the skin, and the antioxidant properties will scavenge the reactive oxygen radicals. This will result in tighter, smoother, and brighter skin.
