Skin Care for loose skin during and after major weight loss!
I love my skin, after all, I have to live in it! I want to keep it as healthy, strong, and tight as possible. This is no easy job since I am 40 years old, in the middle of a weight lose adventure, I've lost 118+ pounds and I have another 75 pounds to go before I reach my goal weight of 120.
Naturally going from 312 to 120 is going to leave a mark. My goal here is to lessen that mark as much as possible. These are the things I do and use to take the best possible care of my skin.
The products below are what I use, feel free to use what you enjoy most.
Stay Hydrated! Did you now... Your skin grows from inside your body 1st! Over time the inner layer rises as a new layer grows beneath it and the outer layer flakes off. So the very 1st step to skin care must start from the inside! Drink plenty of fluids!
Personally I follow this equation. For ever pound you weigh, drink an ounce of fluid. So if you weigh 220 *pounds*, drink 110 *ounces* of fluid! Sounds like to much? But I do it without problem on most days. It's only 13.75 - 8 ounce cups. (do your own research and follow what you feel is right for your body)
SLEEP - Beauty rest is not just an expression!
Proper diet. Keto! Good fat, coconut/olive oils, real butter, and Adequate / Moderate protein. Along with green veggies and all the vitamins they carry! It comes with added benefits! Like intermittent fasting and autophagy which starts after just 12 hours of fasting! (Autophagy removes dying and broke cells from the body and helps build new stronger cells)
The right supplements if you want something extra; D3, B vitamins, a good Prenatal vitamin! Collagen, Beef Gelatin!
