However, there are ways to reverse the sagging process and tighten skin. Several cosmetic procedures are available. But these are costly and they don't guarantee results. Fortunately, there are natural (and inexpensive) ways to firm loose skin.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Lose a few pounds. Carrying extra weight can result in loose or sagging skin--especially if you're not working out. Decrease your fat intake and stay away from fast foods and fried foods. Reduce your body fat by five to 10 per cent.

  2. 2

    Tone your problem areas. Loose or sagging skin is common in the abdomen, thighs and arms. Choose exercises that provide a total body workout to tone and slim these areas. Effective choices include walking, Pilates, abdominal workouts, leg squats and weightlifting.

  3. 3

    Stay away from sugar. Excessive sugar consumption damages the skin and reduces the skin's elasticity. Thus, people who consume a large amount of sugary drinks or foods are prone to developing loose or sagging skin.

  4. 4

    Increase your salmon intake. Salmon contains selenium, a nutrient proven to improve the skin's elasticity. Incorporate salmon into your diet to naturally tighten skin and reduce facial wrinkles.

  5. 5

    Massage your skin. Skin creams and lotions containing collagen, olive oil or Vitamin E strengthens and naturally tightens the skin. Massage your thighs, arms, abdominal and other problem areas daily with these products.
