How to tighten loose skin on thighs

 Loose skin on thighs is associated with rapid weight loss and other issues. Your skin has to stretch to accommodate excess weight. When the weight is shed fast, the skin doesn’t get an opportunity to tighten up effectively. Loose skin on thighs can affect your self esteem. Here are some tips for you to tighten loose skin on thighs.

Drink plenty of water

The power of drinking water and the positive effects it can have on your skin should not be underestimated. As the largest organ in your body, your skin protects you, stores lipids and water, prevents fluid loss and serves as thermoregulation. Drinking more water is essential for tighter skin on your thighs. If you drink ample amount of water every day, you can slowly tighten your skin and maintain a healthy glow. A PH value of 7 is neutral and it is the exact PH value of pure water. Drinking more water ensures that your PH value is balanced. Water also helps tighten your skin by flushing out toxins, reducing wrinkles, preventing pimples and moisturizing the skin.

Diet

You can add foods to your diet that encourage the production of elastin and collagen. These are the compounds your body makes that give your skin elasticity. Consuming certain foods will help tighten loose skin on thighs.

Due to its vitamin C contents, citrus fruits positively impact the elasticity of your skin. Your body requires 75 to 90 mg vitamin C daily. Citrus fruits like orange and Indian gooseberry also provide zinc and selenium – nutrients that help elastin production.

Bell peppers are also an excellent source of vitamin C and zinc.

Cruciferous vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cabbage, Daikon radishes, rutabagas, broccoli and watercress provide nutrients needed for skin health.

Exercise

 To tighten loose skin on thighs gradually, press the inner thighs regularly. Lie on your back and vertically lift your legs. Spreading your thighs apart slightly, cross your arms so that each hand touches the opposite thigh on the inner side just above the knees. Bring your thighs together and push outwards with your palms. Count to 7 for each cycle and aim to complete 10 cycles. This exercise will add more muscle and lead to tighter skin.

Walking is also an excellent exercise for tightening skin on thighs. It works by improving circulation which helps to tighten loose skin on thighs.

PelleFirm

 PelleFirm skin tightening technology works by delivering a controlled dose of monopolar radiofrequency energy, radio waves and heating deep layers without harm to surface skin. Precisely 113 degrees Fahrenheit temperature triggers the body’s internal healing response and produces collagen—a matrix of fibrous proteins that thickens and tightens skin.

The treatment works in another way. The mechanical action of the application head increases circulation, and helps to flush excess fluids from interstitial spaces in subcutaneous tissues. The body’s lymphatic system harmlessly eliminates them and gradually the skin becomes tighter.
