Hard work, exercise, healthy diet and self-discipline are some helpful ways that over weight people to lose that extra fat. One problem that recent weight loss individuals find is excess skin. Nothing can be worse than finding a loose flap of or sagging skin where all that weight used to be. It can be nerve wracking when you can see there’s a sheath of skin anytime you sit or bent over. In some cases, extreme stretch marks can also be found after losing weight.
Another major cause of loose skin is compromised skin elasticity. If your skin loses resistance, it will lose its ability to spring back. Lost elasticity is usually thought of as a characteristic of growing old, but it can also strike younger people.
Make sure to get enough vitamin C as this is important for collagen formation, which is vigorous for skin elasticity.

These foods may include fruits and vegetables, oysters, red meat, salmon, seafood, red palm oil and a lot more.
