Sagging skin is a result of excessive weight loss, childbirth, or age-related. But there are many who wish to keep their skin firm, just as it was in their 20s and 30s. And that's where the skin tightening lotions and creams come in.

Homemade Recipes

It's true that most people are skeptical about the skin tightening products available in beauty shops and departmental stores. And not only that, they are also staying away from plastic surgery (perhaps due to the high risk factor). Which is why, you can make your very own lotion.

Recipe #1
Apply this lotion either on your face and neck, or the rest of the body. In a bowl, mix ¼ cup dry instant coffee crystals, ¼ cup plain yogurt, and 1 lemon's juice. Combine the ingredients properly and apply over your skin. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and wash with cold water.

Recipe #2
This next recipe works really well on saggy skin on face. In a bowl, take 1 egg white. Mix in 4―5 drops of lemon juice and mix the ingredients properly. The mixture should turn frothy. Apply it directly over your face and keep it on till the liquid dries properly. Once your face feels tight and you can't open your mouth, wash your face with lukewarm water.

Recipe #3
Get a bowl to mix in avocado and extra-virgin olive oil. Mash the ingredients together, and make a smooth creamy paste. Keep the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, and apply immediately on your face. Leave the cream on for 15―20 minutes. Wash your face with lukewarm water and pat dry. You can also apply this creamy paste on your hands, stomach, thighs, and legs to tighten skin.

How Does It Work

The commercial creams and lotions have various ingredients like Matrixyl or Argireline, Seaweeds, Omegas, Rhassoul Clay, etc. that help in firming the skin on our body. These ingredients don't just help tighten skin but also aid in reducing dry and flaky skin appearance, improve elasticity and the skin's natural texture, and improve skin's clarity. The creams available in the market today claim to firm loose, sagging skin around your neck, face, stomach, thighs, and other parts of the body. As these and more helpful ingredients penetrate deep into our skin, they work on tightening the skin where the lotion was applied.

The biggest question still remains; how effective are these lotions to us. And to that, all I would say is that instead of viewing the advertisements or searching for best skin tightening cream in the market, why not read the reviews on them. The body firming lotion reviews online can really help you in making the right decision on whether or not you should invest your time and money on them.
