Use Aromatherapy Oils To Help Sagging Skin After Weight Loss

(NaturalNews) A large reduction in weight may result in sagging skin. Conventional treatments such as surgery to remove excess skin are drastic and harsh. A more natural approach combining massage with aromatherapy oils can improve blood flow and help skin elasticity.

The human body is designed to cope with enormous weight gain by literally producing more skin cells. When this extra weight is lost, especially if weight loss is rapid, there may be excess skin, which sags, looks unsightly and can be difficult to shrink into. Loose skin is normal when weight loss exceeds 40 pounds.

Skin massage with aromatherapy oils

Primrose oil

Blend a few drops of primrose oil with an equal quantity of neroli essential oil. This is especially good for sagging facial skin. Massage the face and neck gently and regularly.

Rosemary oil

This oil has astringent properties and is said to improve blood flow and skin elasticity. Blend with a carrier oil such as sweet almond or jojoba.

Frankincense oil

This oil is said to slow down aging and delay the signs of sagging skin. Blend 3 drops of frankincense oil with 2 drops each of patchouli and geranium essential oil. Add around 20 drops of jojoba to create a soothing skin serum.

Rosehip oil

Rosehip oil is extracted from Rosa rubiginosa and has a moisturizing, softening effect on the skin. The oil is high in vitamin C, which aids in collagen formation and is said to be an excellent aid in tissue regeneration. Rosehip oil is not strictly an essential or volatile oil and as such it may be used directly on the skin without dilution first. However, the oil can increase skin phototoxicity and individuals using this oil should avoid excessive sun exposure.
