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. It's flabby!!! 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. I included my Amazon Affiliate links in this post to assist you with your shopping.

Tips to Firm up your 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 Brazilian Bum Bum Cream rich in the caffeine rich Guarana extract after your shower. Give your skin a nice kneading massage as you apply the lotion to help absorption and get the circulation revved up. 

 A firming cream or lotion that contains caffeine helps reduce water retention in the skin. 

Part of the cellulite problem is that fat cells tend to hold onto water puffing them up. Reduce the water retention and you reduce the puffiness of the cellulite. It's not gone, but it looks a little less noticeable. 

Diet
Eat a diet rich in Vitamin C which is needed for our bodies to produce collagen.

Exercise
Start walking. It's an easy exercise to do. The exercise will help the look of flabby skin by toning the muscles, burning fat and increasing circulation.

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