As we age, our skin naturally begins to wear down. On top of that, facing natural elements like the sun, cold, and wind takes an even greater toll. While aging is inevitable, there are easy and inexpensive ways to slow the process down! You can fight off loose skin with just two simple ingredients. This loose skin tightening DIY recipe will firm-up your skin and give you a long lasting, youthful appearance.
Ingredients and Why They Work:
Cucumber – Cucumbers contain key nutrients which are capable of naturally restoring the skin. Vitamins C and K are both antioxidants that fight off wrinkle-causing free radicals. The beneficial skin-tightening ingredient in cucumbers is silica, which promotes connective tissue growth.
Egg White – Egg whites naturally cause skin to tighten, providing you with a lifted, youthful look!
