Women by genetics are more prone than men to flaccidity because our skin is very different from theirs. Once again, I can not fail to mention the hormonal system because testosterone provides the male skin with a number of characteristics that do not confer on us. For example, men’s skin can be 20% thicker than ours, it has more collagen and more fat, which gives it greater elasticity and therefore costs a little more for it to become flabby.
Having said all the above, I am going to give you some advice to try to avoid flaccidity.
► No to low calorie diets: First of all, it is very important not to make very restrictive diets for a long time. In addition to the fact that they are unbalanced and can lead to a rebound effect, if we lose a lot of weight in a short time, the skin cannot adapt properly to the new state and becomes flabby.
► Vitamin C: It is important to have a balanced diet, rich in fresh products such as seasonal fruits and vegetables because they are rich in vitamins (Vitamin C is very important because it helps us synthesize collagen), minerals and antioxidants that will directly affect the appearance and texture of our skin.
► Hydration: You should remember that hydration is also essential to maintain the advice to avoid flaccidity with weights in the fitness blog for women elasticity of the skin, so do not forget to drink at least two or three liters of water daily throughout the day. It is better to drink every 20 minutes to maintain constant hydration than not to drink a liter of water at a stroke. If you have trouble drinking, you can set an alarm every 20-30 minutes to remind you to drink until you get into the habit. I managed to do it when I was 20 years old in college, I always had a liter bottle on me and my goal every day was that before school ended I should have drunk all the water. A little challenge with the bottle can also help you to drink at least two litres of water a day.
► Weight training: The type of training is also essential to prevent skin flaccidity. If we do cardio alone, we will tend to lose muscle mass and the skin will become more flaccid. As I always tell you, an intelligent combination of cardio no more than 30 or 45 minutes per session with a strength workout (weights) in the gym, are the best allies to avoid flaccidity and improve it once the skin has become more flaccid.
► Moisturizing cream: In addition to food, we can also use a moisturizing cream after the shower. To moisturize the skin with certain assiduity, will improve the elasticity and also the aspect of our skin, so that it will help us to avoid flaccidity.
► Omega 3: Finally, we will help to improve the elasticity and quality of our skin by taking foods rich in Omega 3 such as blue fish or seaweed, in fact I recommend the Omega 3 of seaweed more than blue fish because many of the ones we buy are farmed and fed with feed, so they are not rich in O3. Algae, on the other hand, are a very pure source of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic) and DHA (docosahexaenoic).
