Any woman takes care of her face, one way or another, but many forget about her neck: you can always hide it behind a high collar of a sweater or turtleneck, wear a fashionable scarf or kerchief, but you really want to wear an open dress or sarafan in summer, and it’s loose neck skin does not allow - and what to do about it?
Why the skin of the neck becomes flabby
It is probably worth remembering that a well-groomed neck for female beauty is no less important than a face, chest, hands or beautiful legs, but the skin on the neck is so delicate and sensitive that it requires special care. There are practically no fatty layers on the neck, and the cervical muscles lose their tone faster than other muscles of the body - they are rarely subjected to stress. So you should start taking care of your neck skin as soon as possible - it’s better right after 25 years, if you missed this time, start right “from where you are” and take care of your neck as carefully as possible - of course, without fanaticism, but regularly - only in this case your efforts will be rewarded and you can significantly delay the appearance of sagging skin on the neck.
Cleansing must be correct.
One of the causes of sagging skin of the neck is improper cleansing. It is very important to do it right - aggressive means and soap that dries, the neck simply cannot stand - the skin on it quickly becomes flabby and saggy. Soap you need to choose gentle or neutral: you can make soap yourself - today there are many “beauty recipes”, or use men's shaving cream - it really cleanses the skin gently and gently, it also cleanses well and the alum solution is 5-10%, or just decoctions and infusions of medicinal herbs.
For daily care and cleansing of the skin of the neck, you can prepare a lotion with alum: beat raw egg white to make a foam, add castor oil and glycerin (1 tbsp each), lemon juice, any suitable cologne and a solution of burnt alum 2% (½ cup each). If the skin of the neck is oily, then only 1 tsp is added to castor oil. Wipe the skin of the neck with lotion twice a day: in the morning and before bedtime, keep the lotion in the refrigerator.
The best nourishing masks
Natural nourishing homemade masks protect and prevent the delicate skin of the neck from sagging.
A mask with lemon in combination with regular creams for care nourishes the skin of the neck in winter, with a lack of fresh vitamins. The peeled lemon must be finely chopped, the seeds removed, and the pulp softened with a fork. Apply any oily cream to the neck, and then put cotton on the skin - a very thin layer. Put lemon gruel on the cotton and smooth, hold for about 20 minutes, then remove the cotton and wipe the neck again with a fat cream, then blot the neck with a cosmetic disc moistened with fresh lemon juice, and apply another nourishing cream.
You can quickly improve the condition of the skin on your neck with a delicious fruit such as a banana. It is advisable to knead it with a plastic fork on a plastic plate - half the fruit is enough, and then the resulting mass is quickly applied with a thin layer on a wet neck. Such a mask is useful in winter, when central heating batteries dry the air in rooms very much - the neck suffers greatly from this and becomes flabby.
Any fruit and vegetables are the best basis for nourishing and refreshing masks for sagging neck skin. The pulp of any fruit, mixed with natural yogurt in a blender, nourishes the skin and supplies it with vitamins. Potato starch or fresh raw yolk is added to the fruit or vegetable gruel - this is even more nutritious.
For the winter, you can prepare tonic lotions for the neck: chop fresh cucumber or fresh rosehip berries, pour 100 grams of raw materials with a glass of alcohol or vodka, and insist for 2-3 weeks in a dark, dry place.

Fight sagging or wait?
Skin is a unique organ. During weight gain, cells divide, multiply, the surface increases, and new body areas are pulled. With proper weight loss, all this is reduced, takes its original size, but not always. In order for the skin to keep up with the change in the body, it is necessary to lose no more than 2-3 kg per month. If initially the body weight is large, lost from 10-15 kg, all this at an accelerated pace, flabbiness, folds will appear. You can leave everything as it is. Over time, the situation may improve, but is it worth the wait? After 30 years, turgor weakens, the body needs help and good care.
The worst correction is for the chest. Since it consists of 90% of fat cells, when losing weight there is a lot of excess tissue, they are collected by ugly folds.
All methods of dealing with saggy skin after losing weight can be divided into 3 groups: home remedies, salon procedures, surgical methods. Fundamental measures, that is, tissue removal operations, are applied only in complex cases. Plastic surgery is an expensive direction, in many cases a problem can be solved without it.
Important! Many of the available ways to tighten the skin are contraindicated after pregnancy. Pressure on the abdominal region, massage, wraps can harm the first 2-3 months after childbirth, interfere with the restoration of female organs, and provoke bleeding.
Home remedies for sagging skin
The problem will not be so severe if you start body care with a diet. But this happens very rarely. More often the question arises sharply when you need to tidy up the skin after losing weight, that is, with a delay. The advantage of home methods is accessibility, cheapness, variety. The disadvantages include the duration of the procedures, regularity. To achieve really good results, you need an integrated approach and self-discipline.
Nutrition, Vitamins, Water
The skin primarily responds to insufficient intake of necessary substances, tone and elasticity are reduced. It is important to take vitamin complexes during the recovery of the body, since it is impossible to get everything you need from food, especially in the winter. It is equally important to take into account the ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, take them from the right products.

- Fats. The minimum amount for women is 40 g. If it is reduced, hormonal failure will follow. The main sources of fat: nuts, vegetable oils, dairy products, meat and fish.

The effect will be much better if you start using all this at the very beginning of losing weight. Usually, the instructions indicate the method of applying the cream, but if you need a really visible result, you will have to arrange a real SPA salon in the bathroom.
The principles of the use of cosmetics for lifting:
- Steaming the skin. The body needs to be warmed up in a bath, shower or in a sauna, in a bath. The pores of the skin will open, prepare to absorb the cream, it will penetrate deeper into the layers of the dermis, the result will be better.
- Scrubbing, cleansing. It is made after steaming. Any skin requires exfoliation, and problem and sagging it is simply necessary. Old cells need to be removed so that new ones rise from their depths. You can use a scrub with abrasive particles, hard washcloths, mittens, special brushes.
- Applying cream. It is carried out after water procedures. This is not just lubrication, but a real massage with rubbing, stroking, tweezing. It is necessary to work out the problem zone until all the agent is absorbed.
If you do not have time to perform this set of procedures daily, you can do it several times a week, but you need to apply tonic, firming cosmetics every evening. Every morning after waking up, take a contrast shower, paying particular attention to problem areas. Finish swimming with cold water. Skin sagging after losing weight needs regular care, moisturizing, and nutrition.

Typically, the products have heating components: pepper, mustard, coffee, honey, chocolate, coffee, clay, have a beneficial effect on sagging skin. Ready-made masses for wraps are convenient to use, but you need to take into account the size of the problem area, the course of procedures can be quite expensive. In this case, it is more convenient to prepare masks for the film yourself.
