25th June 2014
Your pregnancy is likely to be one of the most precious and memorable times of your life. There are some women who will return back to their usual pre-pregnancy figures immediately after giving birth and then there are others, who will face some difficulties returning back to their usual shape and form.
Below are some useful tips you easily follow on how to be able to tighten loose, supple and saggy skin primarily on your stomach, after giving birth.
Tip one - engage in stomach exercises like planks and crunches
Stomach exercises like planks and crunches have worked wonders for helping women make their stomach flatter, firmer and more toned. Exercises like planks require an individual to suck their stomach in and hold it in for around 30 seconds to a minute. Make sure you repeat this process three times every other day if you want to see a rapid positive result.
Tip two - exfoliate the stomach area
In order to tighten loose skin at a fast pace, you could consider exfoliating the stomach area each time you have a shower. Exfoliation will stimulate collagen production and will improve the elasticity of your skin, so make sure you give it a try.
Tip three - take advantage of laser skin treatments like Thermage
Skin rejuvenation treatments like Thermage can be administered on most parts of the body such as the face, stomach and arms. It's a safe, non-invasive procedure that's clinically proven to help you achieve smooth and tighter looking skin you have always wanted. Visit a skin clinic near you to find out more.
Tip four - drink plenty of water
Drinking plenty of water is not only superb for our health but it also has a positive influence on our skin. Water helps the skin remain hydrated; in turn making most parts of our body like the stomach more elastic and wrinkle-free. Water will also help decrease water retention in the stomach area, which will make your loose skin less noticeable.
