Your belly expands to extraordinary dimensions while you're pregnant. You may be surprised to realize that the loose skin persists after your baby has been evicted.
Loose skin is common after pregnancy. It's something that new mothers had to cope with. It's a badge of honor, proof of your body's strength.
No matter how fit you were before the pregnancy or whether you've continued your exercise program after bringing a child into the world, loose skin, which is a natural occurrence after giving birth, can remain around.
Fortunately, there are a variety of options for tightening the loose skin on your stomach. To get your body back in shape, you might want to consider skin tightening treatments, home remedies, and a variety of workouts. We have come out with a list of suggestions and methods for tightening loose skin after pregnancy.
1. Get your heart rate up
To tackle extra skin, the first step is to start to get moving! An active, healthy lifestyle is beneficial for your skin. It can encourage new oxygen flow to all of the body's organs, including the skin, which can lead to skin regeneration and provide the appearance of a smoother, less saggy appearance.
So, strap your infant into the stroller and go for a short walk. Use an online fitness video to exercise. Go for a solo jog, bike ride, or simple walk to get some alone time, or have a dance party with your kids. But if you're still trying to rebuild your pelvic floor muscles after giving birth, you might want to use caution when doing jumping jacks.
We have a solution for you to improve your pelvic floor strength! TeslaCare was created using the specialized Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) technology to treat weak pelvic floor muscles and urine incontinence.

2. Build Muscle
Excess skin can be minimized by building more muscle mass. Imagine inflating a balloon up. Its surface gets more stretched and glossy as it fills with air. In the same way, your skin changes as your muscles grow and are toned to fill in the gaps left by sagging skin.
We understand that as a new mom, it might be a struggle to fit enough exercise into your routine. Try out TeslaFormer! It is a non-invasive body toning, muscle building treatment for every part of your body. Imagine it working out for you while you enjoy a cup of coffee or read a magazine. It can help to achieve 50,000 contractions in just 30 minutes, at any of your desired areas. Read more on the treatment here.
3. Eat healthy food
Did you know that some nutritious food might aid in the firming of loose skin following a pregnancy? Skin laxity is aided by a variety of healthy fruits and vegetables. These nutritious fats and protein-rich meals can aid in enhancing your skin's firmness.
There are also a few vitamins and minerals that can help reduce the appearance of loose skin after pregnancy.
- Vitamin C: This vitamin helps keep your skin looking healthy and firm, so it's a great choice if you're looking to reduce sagging. You'll find it in citrus fruits, as well as broccoli, spinach, kale and bell peppers.
- Vitamin E: A powerful antioxidant that helps fight off free radicals that cause aging damage on the skin's surface (like wrinkles or loose skin). Try adding some avocado to your salad or drizzle some olive oil over whole wheat pasta for an extra boost of this essential nutrient!
- Zinc: A trace mineral that promotes cell growth throughout the body—including in our skin! Foods like oysters contain high levels of zinc which makes them perfect for preventing loose skin during pregnancy or after giving birth by boosting collagen production within cells underneath our outermost layer - helping tighten up those loose skins caused by stretching during pregnancy!
You should drink enough water every day in addition to eating nutritious meals. Staying hydrated can help to maximize and preserve your skin's suppleness, which is essential if you want to tighten your stomach. Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day.
This amount of water assists your body to burn calories more efficiently. Water nourishes your body, gradually enhancing its look and tightening the excess skin that has developed after pregnancy.
Massage does wonders for your skin in the same way that exfoliating does. This is because it promotes the creation of new skin cells by increasing blood circulation to the skin's surface. It also aids in the reduction of muscular tension. Massage loose skin with a thick cream containing shea butter at home or have a professional Detox Treatment done!
