Loose and sagging skin is one of the most common skin issue faced by many women. Constant unprotected exposure to sun, sudden weight loss and ageing can make your skin look sagging and wrinkly.
Before you get entrapped in the web of complex and chemical based skin firming creams and lotions, it is always a wise choice to try natural skin firming ingredients first. These ingredients are easily available in your kitchen, do not cause any side effects or reaction on your skin and are light on your pocket as well.
Home Remedies For Skin Firming
Break an egg in a bowl and separate egg white from egg yolk. Add a few drops of lime juice and some finely ground clay powder. Mix to make a smooth paste and apply on your face and neck.
Wash off when the pack dries on your face. This paste helps in tightening the skin and tightens open pores temporarily because egg whites are astringent in nature and give skin a lift while clay also helps in tightening skin.
Chickpeas have traditionally been used in many Middle East countries as a skin tightening agent. Take a handful of dry chickpeas and grind them in a mixer. Store the powder in a glass jar. Take a tablespoon of this powder and mix it with raw milk to make a smooth paste. Apply on your face and neck and let it air dry. Wash off with plain water.
Take a piece of fresh tomato and rub it gently all over your face and neck. Wash off with plain water after 20 minutes.
