How to firm up flabby skin

Q. Beach time is coming and my skin looks awful! The skin on my thighs, derriere and stomach is loose and ripply! What can I do?

A. As we age, the production elastin and collagen in our skin slows down leaving us with not so firm skin. Stimulating the skin through exfoliation will help encourage collagen production as well as eliminate dull dry cells and improving circulation to the surface of the skin. There are some easy inexpensive things you can do with your at home skin care routine to improve the look of flabby skin.


Dry Brush
Use a dry body brush over your skin before taking a shower. Use light long upwards strokes on your legs and derriere to not only exfoliate but encourage lymph drainage. Lymph drainage massage stimulates the lymphatic system to carry away wastes including excess fluid.

Firming Lotion
Apply a toning body lotion such as Palmers Body Firming Butter after your shower. Give your skin a nice kneading massage as you  apply the lotion.

Diet
Eat a diet rich in Vitamin C which is needed for production of collagen.

Exercise
Start walking. The exercise will also help the look of flabby skin.

Camouflage
Finally, try camouflage. A fake tan does wonders for hiding our flaws.

Have a Beautiful Day!
