Is your skin getting loose? If yes, kindly note that skin sagging is a natural outcome of ageing and you can not stop it. Does this mean there’s no solution? Fortunately, there are certain home remedies that can help in skin tightening in order to get rid of saggy skin.

Most of the time, we believe that market products are best to treat ageing skin issues; however, chemical free solutions such as home remedies can do wonders for your skin. Before you get down to the natural cures for skin tightening, let’s understand the causes of saggy skin.

What causes saggy skin?

“As we age, loss of collagen under the skin affects its firmness and it appears to be sagging. The sagging skin gives a tired and droopy look to the face,” tells Dr Rinky Kapoor, Consultant Dermatologist, and Dermato-Surgeon, The Esthetic Clinics to HealthShots.
