I mentioned on the pages of Alimero that after birth I lost 10 pounds. Not to say that losing weight was easy for me. It was difficult in the first place, morally. My friends, parents, husband for some reason decided that the best motivation for me would be the words that I won’t succeed, that I am good at such weight, etc.
Physically it was also not easy. As it turned out, limit yourself to your favorite pastries and hearty hearty dinners – still half the battle. My weight went away quickly. Only after I lost the first few kilograms, I noticed with horror that I had cellulite, which I had never had before. The belly hung like a bursting ball. And even on the hands the skin sagged, became very dry.
Honestly, having noticed such changes, I was both upset and frightened at the same time. After all, this is only a few kilograms, I dropped, and planned to part with a dozen, at least! I thought with horror about how I would look like later. Honestly, I was not happy with my weight loss. She was even ready to give up all diets. Fuse disappeared along with the first defeat, as is often the case.
To tighten the body, I signed up for the pool. There I met two girls who also lost weight after giving birth. They gave me some tips that helped them maintain their skin tone. Now, having tried these recipes on myself, I can share them with you, dear readers!
Despite the fact that I wanted to lose weight quickly, I decided to slow down. After all, with active weight loss, the weight goes away, and the skin does not have time to tighten. I decided that I would lose weight by no more than 1 kg per week. To do this, I abandoned all diets and switched to proper nutrition.
I included nuts, fish, and vegetable oil in my diet. Every morning on an empty stomach, I drank 1 tbsp. corn oil. Due to this, the skin did not dry out, was more elastic and elastic. By the way, drinking vegetable oil in the morning has become my habit.
The best way to increase skin turgor is to take a contrast shower. It was the most difficult for me. I used to bathe in very hot water, absolutely not thinking that it dries the skin.
At first I just lowered the temperature of the water. Then she began to alternate between warm and cool water. Now I can take an ice shower in winter. Then I rub vigorously with a massage glove. I finish my procedures by wiping the skin with an ice cube of mint decoction.
I have tried many moisturizing body creams, lotions and other cosmetics promising elastic moisturized skin. But I didn’t find the one I really would have liked.
Instead of creams, I use ordinary baby oil. True, I have one trick. In a bottle with baby oil, I add essential oil of orange. As you know, it effectively fights cellulite.
Thanks to such simple methods, I manage to maintain skin elasticity while losing weight. Dear readers, how do you care for your skin?
