9 Home Remedies For Skin Tightening

March 4, 2020



Loose or sagging skin can be frustrating, and it can have a negative impact on your self-esteem too!


While we often relate it to growing old, losing the natural firmness of your skin doesn’t necessarily mean you’re ageing too fast.


In some cases, it can also be caused by internal/external factors that come with one’s lifestyle — pushing one to explore his/her options with skin tightening in Singapore.



The following are some of the reasons that could give rise to sagging skin:

Weight Loss: The extra weight you carry can stretch your skin over time. Therefore, a significant weight loss, especially over a short period of time, may also result in saggy skin.


Pregnancy: Loose skin after giving birth is a challenge that many new mums face. These folds of skin are more apparent on the upper arms, waist, and belly.


Illness: There are a few medical conditions that cause sagging skin. One of them is the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), a rare, genetic connective tissue disorder that is marked by saggy, doughy, skin, usually on the face.


Medication Reaction: Aside from that, there are also certain medications that can decrease your collagen—the protein that keeps your skin looking plump—thus, making it more prone to sagging.


Ageing: Of course, ageing. After 20 years old, you produce 1% less collagen every year which can cause sags and wrinkles to develop. It can also cause brown spots to appear on the face and body.



Home Remedies for Natural Way of Skin Tightening

Loose skin, while difficult to reverse, is not impossible.


Did you know that the skin is the most elastic and flexible part of the body? It can adapt and change over time. Therefore, with some effort, sagging and wrinkly skin can improve.


From home remedies to skin tightening treatments in Singapore, the ways to restore your youthful skin are already at your fingertips.



Let’s start with the home remedies you can try to regain your skin’s firmness:

Coconut Oil – Coconut oil is said to have healing properties and can hydrate and moisturise your already damaged skin to prevent further sagging. Use it as a treatment by massaging the oil onto your skin. Leave it overnight and repeat it more often to see visible results.


Olive Oil – The use of olive oil as a natural cleanser and moisturiser dates back to Ancient Egyptians. Being rich in vitamin E, olive oil can help tighten your skin and protect it from sun damage.


Egg White – It is rich in a protein, albumin, that can help rebuild skin cells and replenish the skin’s elasticity. Use it as an overnight facemask for skin tightening effects.


Honey – Closely similar to how egg whites work, honey prevents the sagging of the skin and provides you with smooth and younger-feeling skin. Apply it on your face for at least 15 minutes, rinse, and you’re good to go.


Coffee Grounds – Aside from giving you a boost of energy in the morning, it can also delay the signs of skin ageing. Don’t throw your used coffee granules just yet. Use them as a scrub to exfoliate dead skin and reveal healthier, glowing skin.


Lemon – More than boosting your immune system, vitamin C also helps promote collagen production. You can use lemon for your detox water and to bathe or rinse your face with. As for the lemon pulp, you can gently rub it on the areas that needed tightening.


Cucumber – Just as how they are represented in pop culture, cucumber is another natural skin toner that can help tighten loose skin without any side effects. Like lemon, you can slice the cucumber and add it to your water for drinking and/or for washing your face with.


Aloe Vera – Another nature’s wonder, aloe vera is a natural moisturiser that has malic acid, an organic substance which benefits include skin tightening, moisturising, exfoliating, and minimising of wrinkles. You can reap the benefits of aloe vera by extracting its gel from its leaves and spreading it on your skin, leaving it on for at least 15 minutes before rinsing.


Papaya – Papaya, the sweet fruit that aids digestion, contains papain, an enzyme that acts not just as a skin tightener but also a skin whitener. It is rich in both vitamin C and A that provides whiter and more supple skin if you use it as a facial mask at least once a week.



How Effective Are These Home Remedies for Skin Tightening?

Adding home remedies to your skincare routine can be cost-effective. However, it might not work for everyone and there are chances of skin irritations.


Moreover, their effects on skin tightening have yet to be scientifically proven and are not as effective as skin tightening treatments you would get in an aesthetic clinic.


When it comes to skin tightening, there is a range of aesthetic treatments including skin tightening, non-surgical face contouring, and slimming treatments in Singapore.
