Why doesn't skin shrink with body proportions? This is due to a sharp weight loss, as well as poor blood circulation and tissue oxygenation. The skin simply does not receive signals that it needs to contract and change. This problem can be solved by "awakening" the skin with massages with moisturizing nourishing massages, warm wraps, as well as a contrast shower. So, allocate this procedure at least 3-5 minutes from your every morning shower: starting with very warm, almost hot, water and ending with an invigorating cold stream. Each temperature must be maintained for at least 30 seconds, and with their change you will feel a pleasant tingling sensation and as if movement inside - this simply activates your blood circulation.
You can do all kinds of wraps - this is an incredibly pleasant procedure that helps to make the skin elastic. For example, a wrap with cream and cocoa powder that improves blood circulation and skin nutrition is as easy as shelling pears. Take a few tablespoons full of natural cocoa, add to well-heated cream, stir thoroughly and apply to the thighs and abdomen. Now wrap the treated areas with cling film, and quite tightly (but not constricting), take a warm woolen blanket, cover with it and rest for 30 or even 40 minutes. During the wrap, you can also drink herbal tea with honey, which will expel toxins from the inside. Your skin is perfectly warmed up, rid of a lot of toxins and unnecessary fluid, it is much more elastic and velvety.
Use scrubs with large natural particles - fat residues under the skin are smoothed out, blood circulation is significantly improved and the skin receives a signal to smooth and renew. Scrubbing also prepares the skin to absorb all subsequent moisturizers. An excellent way to combat saggy skin is to massage with a hard washcloth, which also exfoliates dead particles and renews the skin well.
After taking a shower, you should every time not be lazy to apply firming and moisturizing products that will maintain skin tone and improve its structure. During the period of skin recovery after losing weight, it is worth giving preference to products with natural extracts of algae, herbs, pomegranate. Very good for firming the skin and base oils with the addition of sweet orange or grapefruit essential oils. You should take any base oil (nutritious apricot is best), warm it up slightly and mix with 2-3 drops of essential oils. It is better to rub this composition in until it is almost completely absorbed, massaging the skin in circular movements clockwise.
