Things are different when you start to age. We no longer enjoy the things we used to back when we were teenagers. We don’t want to stay late at night. Our skin isn’t as supple and young-looking as it once did. Wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and dark circles around our eyes are all part of aging. We cannot run away from it.
What are the reasons for the rapid aging of your skin? Dehydration, lack of sleep, smoking, drugs, alcohol, weight loss, weight gain, and wrong skin-care products are the reasons why people suffer from bad skin. But for many, the worst thing that can happen to them is sagging skin. People whose cheeks used to be full and plump will suddenly find themselves with sagging skin when they reach their mid-30s or early 40s. Thankfully, you can delay and remedy skin sagging.
The best thing to do really is to get a Botox treatment when you can and if your doctor thinks it’s the right course of action for your skin problems. But there are also some things you can do at home with things you can find in your pantry. You don’t even have to buy anything special if you try these home remedies. You can find these things in your cupboard and refrigerator.
One of the best home remedies for skin tightening is aloe vera gel. It can improve skin elasticity because it has malic acid. You can get aloe vera from the plant itself, or you can get an aloe vera gel or cream from the local drug store.
If you are planning to extract the aloe vera from the plant, make sure to remove the outer layer completely. You can then rub it on your face and neck and leave it there for 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water afterward. Do this three to four times every week. Another way to use aloe vera is to mix it with honey and mayonnaise. Leave it for 20 minutes, too, before rinsing it with water.
Egg White and Honey
Egg white is a great way to improve the skin’s elasticity. It has albumin protein which is a great remedy for sagging skin. You can apply the egg white directly on your skin before rinsing it off. You will feel an instant improvement on your skin because egg whites will rebuild your skin cells.
The more effective way of using egg whites is to mix them with honey. Two tablespoons will do. Apply it on your face and neck and wait for 20 minutes. You can then rinse it off with cold water. Do this three times a month.
Use olive oil for this because it is more effective. Massaging olive oil into your skin will make it tighter and smoother. It will also be clearer. Olive oil contains vitamins A and E, both of which have anti-aging properties. This is the simplest way to help in reducing skin sagging.
You will only need two tablespoons of olive oil. Warm it up in the microwave oven before applying it to your face and neck. Make sure that it is not scalding hot. Massage the olive oil for 10 minutes before wiping it off with a wet cloth. If you do not have olive oil, you can use coconut oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, or rosehip oil.
Ground Coffee and Coconut Oil
You can make a coffee face pack with ¼ cup of ground coffee, two tablespoons of coconut oil, ¼ cup of brown sugar, and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon. Since coffee contains caffeine, it will make your skin firmer and softer. It will also eliminate fat and moisturize the skin. The presence of the coffee grounds will gently exfoliate the skin.
The ingredients will create a paste-like mixture that you can use to scrub your face and neck with. Scrub your face and neck for five minutes and wash the mixture off with lukewarm water. Do this once a week or when the skin on your face and neck feels dry.
Rosemary Oil and Cucumber
To improve blood circulation and skin toning, you need to use rosemary oil. You can also expect your skin to improve its elasticity because rosemary oil is rich in antioxidants. If you do not have rosemary oil in your pantry, you may want to pick a small bottle of this because it’s going to be an effective anti-aging agent.
All you need is one tablespoon of rosemary oil and grounded cucumber (a half is okay). Turn the cucumber into a paste-like texture and mix in the rosemary oil. Apply the mixture on your face and neck and leave it for 20 minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water before patting your skin dry. Do this once a week.
These home remedies for sagging skin are effective. Not to mention, they are super easy to do. You only need a couple of minutes to prepare the mix. You’re done after only 25 minutes or so, and that includes prep and rinse time.
