That roll of flabby stomach overhang, just below our navel, that puckers up when we sit, jiggles when we walk and hangs like a busted tire as we stand still, is a complete nightmare!
And let's admit it, as much as we try, our sagging belly seems perpetually immune to any technique of firming up! Nothing seems to work!
So, what causes belly skin to sag? For the starter, rapid loss or gain in the body mass index. Other than that, pregnancy, faulty dietary patterns and the most common culprit, lack of physical activity could be the major reasons.
First thing you need to do is hydrate your body to flush out the toxins, reduce the intake of salt and sugar. Eat food rich in vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids to boost collagen production, which in turn helps maintain elasticity of the skin.
Exercise at least thrice in a week. Focus on belly firming and weight-resistance exercises to boost metabolism. And of course, moisturise your skin, as dehydrated skin easily loses its tone.
And combined with the above-mentioned tips, here is a ginger, lemon and aloe vera mask that will work to firm up that loose belly skin, which you can surely give a try!
Ginger has a natural thermogenic agent that increases your body temperature, which in turn helps dissolve that stubborn fat and firms up the skin. Second ingredient in our body pack is lemon.
Lemon has strong amount of vitamin C that boosts collagen production, which in turn restores the skin's elasticity. Aloe vera, on the other hand, has malic acid that is known to tighten the skin.
The last ingredient in our pack, honey, has anti-ageing and antioxidant properties that help firm up saggy skin and also give it a nice radiant glow.
