Your Skin After Weight Loss

Skin After Weight Loss*Guest Post from Doreen*

Most of us are familiar with the benefits of weight loss, which can range from increased confidence to a lowered risk of ailments such as heart disease and diabetes. However, the effect of weight loss on skin is an issue that is rarely discussed.

Weight loss can have both positive and negative effects on your skin, and being aware of what you might go through when you lose weight can keep you prepared for the physical and psychological changes that await you…

Changes to your Skin

So, let’s have a look at some of these aspects and talk about the ‘skin reality’ when losing weight.

Breakouts and acne

When you first start to lose weight, your body undergoes huge changes. As fat tissue is broken down, extra doses of estrogen are released into your blood stream. Such significant hormonal changes can have a huge effect on your skin, causing breakouts and acne not unlike that experienced by teenagers.

Improved complexion

After your body has had some time to adjust to the initial changes, you will be able to reap the benefits of your weight loss. Your body’s insulin sensitivity will start to increase, and this will lower your average blood sugar level. Lower blood sugar levels bring many benefits, which include not only better overall health but also clearer complexion. Woo hoo!

Loose skin

Those who lose large amounts of weight in a short period of time often face the problem of loose and sagging skin. As body mass falls, skin that once covered a larger surface area starts to hang more loosely. This is usually observed in people who have undergone lap band surgery or gastric sleeve surgery, though there are such patients who do not suffer from loose skin. Many of the contestants on “biggest loser” type game shows exhibit loose skin after undergoing drastic weight loss.

How to deal with loose skin

Loose skin can be quite traumatic, especially for those for whom it occurs suddenly. While in extreme cases surgery might be the only way to effectively deal with loose skin, there are a number of methods that can help to prevent it.

Some supplements that can lessen a person’s chance of suffering from loose skin include gelatin caps and Vitamin C. Compression bandages can keep skin taut by shaping it through the power of compression.

Finally, reducing the speed at which weight is lost is the best way to help your skin to retain its elasticity.

While losing weight might work wonders for your health and your self-confidence, if you lose a significant amount of weight, you can expect your skin to undergo numerous changes.

Your skin will be taken through several stages, so being aware of what these stages are and what effects will be experienced at each will enable you to preempt and deal with the changes as/when they happen. You will then be able to combat the negative effects weight loss has on your skin as you enjoy the positive effects a healthy weight will have, not only on your skin but also on your health and your life in general!

Look Your Best When Travelling*Guest Post from Katina*

Anyone who has ever traveled away from home for several days or weeks has felt a difference in their skin upon returning home. In most cases, its worse, not better.

Lack of sleep, long flights, different foods, excessive alcohol consumption and different climates all play a role in causing looks to wilt, rather than appear fresh and dewy.
