Weight loss requires consistent motivation. For those who have lost an average of 20 to 100 pounds, loose skin may be visible. Skin elasticity varies by age. Those between the ages of 13 and 25 do not often encounter an issue with loose skin after weight loss. Additional vitamins, exercises and home remedies may be used to reduce the visibility of excess skin.
Things You'll Need
- Omega-3 multivitamin
- Measuring cup
- Lemon juice
- Baking soda
- 1 large lemon
- Rosemary leaves
- Large bowl
Restoring Skin Elasticity
Consume a minimum of 80 ounces of water daily. Water contains several nutrients that are often overlooked. The skin needs a daily serving of these nutrients to properly hydrate.
Calculate how many pounds you have lost and the time it took to reach your current weight. Those who lose 20 to 100 pounds quickly often have excess skin more than those who gradually meet their weight goal.
Purchase a multivitamin containing omega-3. Be sure to take the vitamin daily with an eight-ounce glass of water. Omega-3 is a vital nutrient that helps the skin repair cell damage.
Create a detoxifying herbal-water beverage by mixing two tablespoons of lemon juice and one-half teaspoon of baking soda in an 8-ounce glass of water. Consume two times daily, morning and night.
Exercise regularly. A daily 30-minute cardio workout will help tone the skin. Cardio activities can include walking at a rate of 3 miles per hour, jogging and bicycling.
Skin Toner Home Remedy
Dice a whole lemon into four sections. Remove the seeds.
Measure one-half cup of soju, one-half cup of Sprite and one teaspoon of honey. Pour the soju, Sprite and honey into a bowl.
Add the lemon wedges and one-quarter cup of rosemary leaves to the bowl. Cover the mixture and put it in the refrigerator. Leave the mixture undisturbed for one week.
Open the container’s lid and make sure the alcohol scent from the soju is not strong. If alcohol odor is strong, re-cover the mixture and let it sit in the refrigerator for two more days.
Strain the mixture, emptying the rosemary leaves and lemon wedges. Apply the mixture to loose skin twice daily. Keep the toner refrigerated for one week and then discard.
