Typically, you’ll want to start with a body scrub. Exfoliants remove dead skin and improve circulation, speeding up the process of new skin regeneration. After exfoliation, you’ll want a deep moisturizer that can replace lost oils and encourage the production of collagen to boost elasticity. It’s also valuable to seek out products specifically for the neck and chest since these areas often have long vertical lines (fountain lines) that make treatment more difficult.
If you’re like me and it’s your neck skin that’s having trouble bouncing back, then check out my blog post, “How To Choose The Best Neck Firming Cream.”
Look for these skin firming ingredients:
Matrixyl 3000: A revolutionary skincare innovation, this combination of 2 “super peptides” boosts collagen and elastin production, making it a formidable fighter against crepey skin to help the skin retain its elasticity, strength, and firmness.
Wakame Bioferment (Aka Fermented Seaweed): Seaweed is extremely nourishing and hydrating, leaving skin plump and soft.
Plant Stem Cells: Stem cells are natural anti-aging ingredients. They help your skin look younger, with a noticeable glow.
Natural oils and butters: Since our skin naturally produces less oil as we age, products with oils and butters, especially organic oils and butters, are effective to boost hydration and increase elasticity.
Vitamin C and Peptides: These promote healthy collagen production, boosting elasticity in the skin by repairing damage done by free radicals and the sun.
Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is intensely hydrating, allowing for the skin around the neck and chest to become more plump and firm.
So if you have loose skin after weight loss like I had, then I suggest you follow these 5 expert tips. Be patient and loving with your skin. Your skin may have been stretched to its limit for several years and so you can’t expect it to bounce back immediately as if you were 20. But you will start seeing results after 15 days, 30 day, 60 days and 90 days.
Use these skin firming creams every day and feel exhilarated in your body!
