As we start to get older, one of the things that all of us have to start to contend with is the appearance of loose skin. I’m sure you are familiar with the kind of turkey neck looks that I’m talking about. Of course, some of this is genetic and runs down family lines, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways to slow down the process or even halt it in its tracks. Surgery might be an attractive option for some people, but I prefer to think about things from a much more natural and less invasive point of view. Here is a list of the best natural oils for tightening loose skin.
1. Castor Oil
Castor oil is great natural oil to start with. You can mx it with a little bit of lavender oil or lemon juice and proceed to rub the mixture onto the areas of skin that you are looking to tighten up.
2. Almond Essential Oil
Almond essential oil is rich in vitamin E, which has a reputation for being a great moisturiser. This moisturising property will work toward getting rid of loose and sagging skin and also stretch marks across your body. It is filled with antioxidants that can help to renew your skin tissues. No need to mix this one with anything, just take a small amount and start out by rubbing it on your stomach.
3. Frankincense Essential Oil
The best feature of frankincense essential oil is that is has beneficial antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, making it is a really good product for the skin. If you are prone to acne and oily skin as well as having areas that you want to tighten up, then frankincense will be able to help you in a double attack kind of way.
4. Geranium Essential Oil
Geranium essential oil can help to regulate the production of oil on your skin which is great for reducing acne breakouts. In terms of loose skin issues, it can also improve the elasticity of your skin which is obviously going to be able to produce a positive result for looser areas. All you have to do is apply a small amount of the essential oil directly to the problem areas about twice a day.
5. Myrrh Essential Oil
Myrrh has long been known to have great benefits for aging skin. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties which means that it will do wonders for improving the overall tone, firmness and elasticity of your skin. It should be used in exactly the same way as almond essential oil to achieve the very best results.
