Tips for How to Tighten Loose Skin

Loose skin can be frustrating and can impact self-esteem. While there are many ways you can develop loose skin, once you have it, it can be difficult to reverse.

Causes of loose skin can include weight loss, pregnancy, and the effects of aging. Common places people experience loose skin include the:

stomach
face
neck
buttocks
arms
legs
While you can help improve loose skin through cosmetic surgery, many options exist for people who would rather avoid medical procedures.

These options include:

exercise
firming products
nonsurgical procedures
weight loss
massage

1. Bicep curl to overhead press
How to do:
Stand with feet hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand.
Curl the weights in front of your shoulders with palms facing the ceiling. Immediately press weights overhead with the palms facing forward.
Lower back down with control. Perform 15 reps.
2. Reverse Lunges
Stand with your feet together, arms by your sides, holding dumbbells.
Take a wide step back with your left foot and lower into a lunge, bending both knees about 90 degrees – try to bring your right thigh parallel to the floor.
Keep your torso upright. Step the left foot forward, and return to standing with both feet together. Do 20 alternating reps.
3. Push-ups
How to do:
Begin in a full plank with your abs engaged. Keep your hands slightly wider than shoulder width and keep your feet together.
Bend your elbows out to the sides, and lower your body toward the floor.
Avoid letting your lower back sag, and try to line up the midline of your chest between your thumbs as you lower and lift.
Do up to 15 reps with good form.
4. Alternating-arm bent-over row for flabby skin
How to do:
Begin with your torso at a 45-degree angle to the floor, knees slightly bent, arms out in front of you, holding dumbbells.
Row your right elbow up and back toward your side.
Lower your right arm back down and perform a rep on the left side.
Do 30 reps, alternating sides with each rep.
5. Sumo Squat
How to do:
Stand with your feet wide. Holding dumbells in your hands, turn your toes and knees out slightly about 45-degrees.
Bend your knees out over your toes. Push your hips back and lower your torso toward the floor as your arms reach down to the ground.
Return to start. Do 20 reps.
