An unfortunate reality for women is that as they age, certain body parts tend to hang a little lower. Saggy breasts can also be a result of having children (whether or not a woman nurses), gaining/losing weight, or fluctuating in breast size due to a variety of other reasons such as menopause. The drooping of the two sisters is often a cause of concern for many women, especially those that believe there is nothing that can be done about it. Contrary to popular belief, however, there are in fact some natural ways to regain that firmness of your more youthful breasts, naturally.
Saggy Breasts -Preventative Measures
The easiest way to get your breasts as perky as you want them is to prevent sag as much as possible. While sagging will occur naturally to some extent in all women, it can be prevented by avoiding massive fluctuations in weight; gaining and then losing of weight will result in loose, droopy skin. Also, be sure to have proper support when working out as jumping, running, hiking, and many other activities done without a good sports bra will expedite the sagging timeline.
Undoing the Sagging
If you’re already suffering from southward-migrating breasts, do not despair. Aside from maintaining a steady (and healthy weight), there are some natural remedies that can be utilized to reverse this trend.
Make sure that you are always drinking enough water (at least 64 ounces every day). Dehydrated skin can lose its suppleness, contributing to saggy skin of the breasts.
2. Eat a Healthy Diet
Consuming the right nutrients on a regular basis can also prevent and address sagging breasts. Specifically, be sure that you are eating foods rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals, including calcium and essential fats. Some options to be incorporated regularly include tomatoes, cauliflower, onions, carrots, and broccoli.
Considered a potent, effective, and natural anti-aging remedy, this fruit can help fight premature aging of the skin, including sagging breasts. The phytonutrients in the seeds can help repair firmness in your breasts.
4. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera has natural skin-tightening properties, which dramatically improves the appearance of descending breasts. Apply some aloe vera gel, in a circular motion, all around the breasts and let sit for about ten minutes, then rinse off with cool water. You can repeat this remedy 4-5 times per week.
There are also some effective exercises that can improve the appearance of ageing breasts. Because your breasts are made up of fat and not muscle, you can’t work the in the same way as you would muscles. However, by working out your pectoral muscles, which lie under your breasts, you can naturally and effectively lift the breasts up. Push-ups, dumbbell flies, and overhead presses are just some of the exercises that will pick your breasts back up.
Massaging the skin of the breasts and around them with an oil, such as coconut, can help reduce sagging and improve appearance. Massaging this area 2-3 times per week will improve flood flow to the area, causing the skin to tighten and thus lift the breasts. Olive and grapeseed oils are also excellent options for massage oil.
What to Avoid
There are also certain practices/foods/habits that should be avoided because they will further contribute to the sagging of breasts. This includes smoking, tanning, and wearing a poor-fitting bra. Smoking and tanning are known to contribute to premature wrinkling and aging of the skin, causing it to sag, and wearing the wrong bra can lead to poor support.
As they age, many women complain about the sad state of their once-perky girls. No need to dread the effect of time and gravity, however. With the knowledge learned above, you can avoid, prevent, and treat the sagging of your own breasts.
