Want to Tighten Your Skin Naturally? You Need to Read This First
Sagging skin. We hate it. It kills our self-confidence and hides our true beauty. The problem is that sagging skin seems to be unavoidable. Whether you’re dealing with loose skin thanks to weight loss or aging, it’s a fact of life for many of us, and that means you need solutions to firm it back up again.
While you could run out and schedule a facelift or plastic surgery, going under the knife isn’t the best option; it’s expensive, painful, and downright dangerous. You don’t need a surgeon to tighten your skin and bring back your youthful glow. Instead, consider going the natural route.
Try these 7 natural remedies for tighter, smoother, more radiant skin.
There are hundreds of different face mask recipes for tightening your skin. We couldn’t possibly mention them all or even most of them. Instead, we’re going to provide a few of our favorite recipes along with the best skin tightening ingredients.
Papaya Face Mask: Papaya is great for skin care. It’s an excellent source of vitamin E, which helps boost collagen production and promotes skin firmness and elasticity. Plus, the papain found in papaya has been shown to promote skin regeneration and to reduce sagging. A simple face mask should stay on your face for 20 minutes and requires:
- 1 ripe, mashed papaya
- ¼ cup rice flour
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Egg White Mask: Egg whites are a natural astringent, which causes your body tissues to contract, making them great for tightening sagging skin. In addition, the hydro lipids in egg whites provide a natural shine to your skin. To make the mask, simply whisk two egg whites together until they are nice and frothy. Then, apply and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Do this twice a week for the best results.
When your skin gets dry, new skin cells stop growing and your appearance drastically changes. This is particularly true after you’ve spent time in the sun, which has an extremely negative effect on your skin’s elasticity. That’s why one of the best natural things you can do for firmer skin is to use a daily natural moisturizer like our PHL Natural Anti Aging Face Cream Moisturizer. It contains Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides to naturally firm, rejuvenate, and smooth your skin.
Did you know that you can tighten your skin just by drinking more water? Our skin is made up of 64% water, which means that the better hydrated you are the more radiant your skin will look. By drinking at least six glasses of water a day you can increase your skin’s elasticity, tighten loose skin, and smooth out your appearance.
According to the American Council on Exercise, strength training builds your muscles, creating a layer of muscle underneath your skin, which results in tighter skin. This is especially beneficial for those individuals suffering from sagging skin due to weight loss. When you drop your caloric intake to lose fat, you also often lose muscle. Rebuilding the muscle with help your skin become tighter once again.
You can also perform facial exercises to tighten skin around your cheeks, eyes, lips, neck and forehead. Some exercises include tilting your head back with your mouth closed and looking at the ceiling while chewing with your mouth closed. You can also tighten the skin around your neck by keeping your mouth closed and sucking in, repeatedly. For the best results, we recommend performing these exercises at least twice a day.
Who doesn’t love to get a massage? Well, now you have another excuse. Facial massages are one of the best, natural skin-tightening methods. Massages are known to help increase blood circulation, which can promote skin health. And when you combine your massage with olive oil—one of the best types of oil for your skin, which is packed full of vitamins A and E—it can help your skin become tighter, firmer, and smoother.
Natural skin tightening oils are a safe, healthy, and effective way for getting rid of loose skin. Some of the best oils include Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil, which are both known for working to naturally reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to tighten loose and sagging skin.

You are what you eat, and that goes for your skin, too. For firmer skin, you should include plenty of antioxidant-rich foods in your diet. These foods help to eliminate free radicals and build more collagen. Examples of these foods include avocados, grapes, olives, and honey. Another great food for skin elasticity is Brazil nuts, which contain selenium—a skin-boosting ingredient. You should also try to avoid foods that are high in salt as well as fried foods and drinks such as alcohol and soda.
