Loose Skin after Pregnancy

Submitted by Nick on January 17, 2012

Loose skin after pregnancy is inevitable as the skin has been stretched to its maximum and will take some time and effort to get back. This can happen after the first pregnancy but is not possible for women who have had several pregnancies. Loose skin just remains that way unless you get to work on it and at the most will get just a bit firmer. You will have to do something about it like exercises or invasive methods to get rid of the excess skin on the tummy.

Prevent Loose Skin After Pregnancy

To prevent loose skin after pregnancy you will have to take care of it while you are pregnant. Stick to a good diet and do not put on more weight than required. Many women think they have to eat for two which is not true. Instead remain active and keep a watch on your weight so that you can get back into shape faster. The skin should be kept healthy by moisturizing it both internally and externally. Drinking a lot of water keeps it healthy internally and one could apply moisturizers on the tummy and the breasts as these are the two areas which expand most. Keeping the skin on the tummy moisturized prevents stretch marks too.
