Treat Sagging Skin Naturally

If you have ever looked at a piece of crepe paper, you’ll totally understand how sagging skin can look. It refers to a skin type that looks thin, wrinkled and loose.

One need not be old to get sagging skin, however it mainly occurs due to aging, generally in those over 40, or individuals who have lost weight rapidly. Loose and saggy skin can take hold at an earlier age if you’re someone who drinks less water and has dry skin. There is also some suggestion that it could be to do with genetics too. Overexposure to sun and heat damage can also cause your skin to look dull and flaccid, eventually leading to sagging skin.

The whole process occurs because the natural elastin fibers in your skin get weakened due to all of the reasons mentioned above, and it is a part of the natural aging process. Some more of the reasons for developing saggy skin include the use of some medications, poor diet and a high intake of sugar, caffeine or alcohol. A lack of sufficient sleep and even everyday pollution and UV damage!

Even though the loss of elastin is a natural process, and will eventually happen to us all, there are ways we can look after our skin, and slow down the sagging!

Most people have invested in some anti-aging skincare products at some point, and these products are often overly priced, and not all of them give us the desired results.

To save you money, and effectively care for your skin health, we have listed some of the best natural ways to keep your skin youthful.

1. Green Tea

Green tea is a great way to clean the toxins out of your skin. You can enjoy drinking the tea, while also reusing the tea bags as facial masks. Rub a tea bag on the face and leave it for a few minutes before rinsing. The antioxidants in the green tea are great at minimizing pores and lift the skin.

2. Ginger

The antioxidant gingerol, found in ginger is an excellent remedy for aging skin. It can protect your skin from the collagen break down and can actually make your skin look youthful and bright. Make sure to add some to your tea every morning, or cut up some fresh ginger and add to hot water for a refreshing drink.

3. Banana

Banana is an excellent natural remedy for making skin fresh and lifted instantly, and it naturally boosts collagen production. Just mash half a banana and apply it all over your face and neck, let it dry, then gently scrub off and rinse the skin with water.

4. Olive Oil

The monounsaturated fats in the olive oil can help to prevent the new wrinkles from developing and treats the old ones too. Massage into your skin on a daily basis and start seeing the difference. It works very well to tighten and hydrate skin on the upper arms.

5. Avocado

Charged with vitamin A, D, and E, this superfood can lubricate your skin and provide it the extra hydration to make it feel plump and soft again. Eat more avocados, or just make a mask with mashed avocado, and feel the difference once you start using it regularly.

6. Aloe Gel

It consists of beta carotene and vitamin E, regular use of aloe gel can make skin plump and can reduce wrinkles and sagging skin too. Rub over some like your daily moisturizer or use the fresh plant pulp and mix with milk or water before drinking daily. Both ways it’s going to work wonders.

7. Cucumber

8. Orange

Vitamin C is the key ingredient in most of the anti-aging products and what’s better than using it in its pure form. Take some fresh juice in the morning, drinking it can detox your body from within while rubbing a drop or two on your face every day, can make skin look brighter and youthful.

9. Honey

10. Egg Whites

Now that you know some of nature’s best ways to make skin youthful again, the most important thing to remember is to stay hydrated, be consistent and patient, and get ready to see things work.

What Models Eat During Fashion Week

The stars of the latest shows in the capitals of the fashion universe haven’t dazzled us only with their bold strut and magnificent charm with which they wear those stunning collections, but they equally amaze us with their physiques! Now, we already know they practice self-discipline in their dietary habits off-season, that’s no secret, but what about their top choices during these fabulous fashion shows?

Proper hydration

You may wonder if these gorgeous gals gulp on enormous amounts of coffee just to be able to survive the number of events that surrounds the fashion shows. Yet most of them, including lovely Kendall, focus on water and detox tea – even up to 12 cups per day! The first one being zero-calorie makes perfect sense, but going for tea also serves to keep their complexion pure, and bellies flat.

If in need of an energy boost, then a healthier caffeine option hides in green tea, and other herbal mixes that lower the levels of inflammation in the body, balance their pH levels and help them with their water intake. Now there’s a tasty way to stay hydrated!

Smart snacks

Sometimes these ladies have no time for a complete meal, and their shows can deplete their energy levels in no time, so it becomes essential to keep their bodies fueled at all times. As a result, they resort to healthy snack options such as various types of raw nuts loved by Adriana Lima, but this may ring an alarm bell in your mind because they are filled with fats! Yes, they indeed are, but that is precisely what makes them so satiating, and nibbling on a handful can keep supermodels going for hours on end.

They also rely on hefty amounts of raw fruits and vegetables, such as berries which are packed with antioxidants (extremely important for their immune system and their skin health), and Danielle Copperman swears by coconut yoghurt. Brimming with healthy fats and protein, these snacks are ideal for a girl on the go!

But despite their best efforts and all of these dietary guidelines crafted by the world’s best experts in nutrition, supermodels sometimes need an additional boost to their daily meals. When the shows, parties and lack of sleep threaten to wreak havoc on their wellbeing and beauty, models such as Magdalena Frackowiak safeguard their health with the help of micronutrient-dense supplements.

A clear complexion, a strong immune system and flawless hair require a solid amount of vitamins and minerals, and when there’s no time to stick to a meal-plan, using Solgar vitamins and similar supplements to regular meals and snacks ensures all the essential daily needs.

Full-blown breakfast

When there’s time, these ladies will not shy away from a veggie-rich omelet, and Anastasia Ivanova even reaches for an occasional slice of bacon to keep her breakfast tasty. Don’t be surprised if you see them munching on an occasional burger, a slice of pizza or even the dreaded pastry such as croissants, because the need for a convenient energy source sometimes trumps your current dietary limitations.
