How Skin Tightening Occurs Naturally
As we age, the cells in our bodies age as well. For skin, this means a breakdown of cells and connective tissues that results in wrinkles and a looser appearance to the face and body as the cells lose some of their elasticity and firmness.
Unfortunately, we can’t stop the aging process or send it into a reversal, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to improve the firmness of tissues in our bodies.
There are several ways that skin tightening can occur naturally and improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.
Vitamins Through Your Diet
One of the ways that damaged skin can be repaired is through a diet that is rich in essential vitamins and other nutrients that fight aging and tissue damage.
Several vitamins, such as A, E, and C contain powerful antioxidants that neutralize the effects of toxins and free radical cells in the body. Free radicals can damage cells and even cause mutations to them. Antioxidants keep free radicals from causing damage, improving your overall health, including tissues. These vitamins also promote the growth of new cells, which effectively tightens the skin as the new, firm cells replace the older, damaged ones. Many fruits and vegetables contain these powerful vitamins.
Hydrate Your Body
Drinking plenty of water is necessary to ensure that your body is properly hydrated.
Each and every cell, organ, and system needs hydration to grow and work effectively, and hydration is vital for skin. Lack of hydration leads to dull, dying cells and this contributes to wrinkles and sagging because your body will send the available moisture for more vital organs effectively neglecting your skin. Hydrated cells are also plumper, and plum cells make for more firm tissues. Limit your intake of caffeinated beverages and those with excessive chemical additives that can counteract the benefits of the water you drink.
Stimulate Blood Circulation
Increasing the circulation of blood flow throughout your body will remove toxins that damage your tissues and cells.
It also stimulates the growth of new cells in the areas of stimulation. The increased blood flow also helps to naturally plump up your cells, which is particularly noticeable on your face. Moderate exercise is great for increasing blood flow throughout your body, improving your appearance in many ways. To target the skin on your face, a facial massage is beneficial for increasing blood flow and restoring the cells of your tissues.
Exfoliate Your Skin
A natural way that your skin is tightened is by shedding old dead cells. Exfoliation is the process of loosening and removing dead cells to reveal the newer, firmer cells beneath. Exfoliation also stimulates the growth of new skin cells, so that the process of cell regeneration is ongoing. As dead cells are removed, newer ones take their place, and this improves the firmness of your tissues. Exfoliation is great for the skin on your body as well as your face, and this process, performed regularly, will naturally improve the appearance of both wrinkles and loose skin.
Natural skin tightening is achievable if you stay hydrated, perform regular, light exercise, and perform periodic exfoliation. To enhance and tighten you skin with skin care products, consider using a skin tightening or body firming lotion.
The best results for tightening facial tissue is using a serum like Skin Tight® Face Serum (see below).
