6 Natural Remedies to Tone Sagging Skin

Nothing survives aging! Definitely not the skin and the tissues. Stretch marks, loose sagging skin and wrinkles are but a natural part of growing up and aging. However, there are a few simple ingredients that you may find in your house or your nearest local store which could greatly help with fighting back the sagging skin and give it a good tone.

The home remedies below can help you fight the sagging skin in the arms, neck, face and breasts.

1. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a natural remedy for many skin disorders and problems. It can naturally tighten and tone the skin, decreasing the appearance of sagginess. Simply apply fresh aloe vera gel to the skin and rub it in gently. Repeat daily. You can use bottled aloe vera gel for this, but fresh gel from your own aloe vera plant may have better results.

2. Rose Water

Like many of the other ingredients on this list, rose water is naturally astringent. It can tighten skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores. Before going to bed, simply rinse your face with rose water. Leave it on overnight and wash off in the morning.

3. Lemon Juice

Young-looking skin is characterized by brightness and smoothness. Lemon juice can help you in both of these areas. Every day, you can take the juice of one lemon and apply it to your skin. Allow it to dry and then rinse off.

4. Egg Whites

If you have ever seen how egg whites tighten up when they are whipped, then you know that they can help loose or saggy skin. Just separate two egg whites and whisk them until they become foamy. Use them as a skin mask until they harden. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

5. Cinnamon

If your skin needs more collagen, cinnamon may be the answer. Create a paste by mixing equal parts cinnamon and turmeric. Create a paste with olive oil and add a pinch of sugar. Use this as a scrub and wash off with warm water.

6. Strawberries

Bright red strawberries are full of the nutrients that your skin needs to stay youthful and healthy. Strawberries can easily be mixed with yogurt and honey to create a paste; just mash the strawberries first. Use the mixture as a face mask once daily until your skin starts to feel rejuvenated.

Protect Your Skin

If you are working this hard to return your skin to its youthful state, it is important to prevent further damage to your skin. Make sure to use a gentle wash and moisturizer every day. Whenever you go outside, it is important to use sunscreen. Even a short period of sun exposure can cause your skin to lose elasticity and start wrinkling.

Saggy skin is part of aging, but you don’t have to put up with it. The natural remedies provided by nature can help you enjoy the beautiful skin you deserve to have. Just add one or two of these remedies into your beauty routine until you find ones that work for you and your skin.

2 Detox Recipes that Look Pleasing, Taste Great and Cleanse Your Body at the same time

Detoxifying your body does not always have to be a painful and tedious process involving fasting or juicing. Claire Goodall says:

The only thing that can “Detoxify” your body is your body itself!

That may seem a little strange considering how so many people are raving about juicing and sharing around their recipes. The truth is this – the act of fasting and juicing is not meant to actually bring about the detox. It is only meant to improve the efficiency of the body’s organs of detoxification – liver, lungs and kidneys.

When you leave these organs to their natural state they cleanse themselves. By using the right ingredients, you could peak the efficiency of working of these organs.

Here are some of the recipes you can try which is nothing but water mixed with these ingredients which look pleasing and have a great flavor and smell too!

1. Beautiful Beet Water

Beets can help thin bile, thereby improving its flow and helping your liver work to the best of its abilities. It also imparts a beautiful light red color to the water that I find lovely and refreshing. Mint contains menthol, which gives your liver a boost by encouraging bile to flow into the duodenum. A little lime works in the same way the menthol does. Combined, these ingredients help your bodies detox system work better than ever.

You will need…

-1/2-1 red beet
-1/4 cup of chopped, fresh, peppermint leaves
-Juice of ½ lime
-1-2 liters of fresh water

Directions

1. Rinse and slice the beet, placing it immediately into 1-2 liters of fresh water (depending on how concentrated you want the flavor to be.

2. Chop up the mint and add it into the water along with the lime juice (add in the solid part of the lime after squeezing out the juice.)

3. Infuse and chill for 12-24 hours in the refrigerator before drinking. Serve in a glass with ice. This will last for 4 days in the fridge.

2. No More Mercury – Apple Orange Water

Who said that apples and oranges can’t go together? Apples and oranges contain pectin, the same ingredient that puts the gel in gelatin. Pectin will bind willingly to heavy metals, allowing them to be easily flushed from the system. This nifty trick gives your liver a helping hand and helps keep it in tip top shape. In oranges, most of the pectin is in the pith (the white part on the peel) or the membrane between the segments, so be sure to leave the peel and membrane on the fruit. For this particular drink, I enjoy eating the fruit in the glass while I drink it.

You will need…

-2-3 oranges, cut into chunks
-3 apples, cut into chunks
-1-2 liters of water

applewater

Directions

Slice up the apples and oranges into large chunks, leaving the skin/peel on, and place in a pitcher with fresh water. Infuse for 24 hours before serving in glasses with ice.
