Nobody really wants to their girls to sag. Yes, it’s an inevitable side effect of aging, but we’d like to put that off as long as possible. Like, really though. There’s nothing wrong with wanting perky boobs that sit up nicely and make us feel confident. It’s our body and our decision so why not feel good about it?
Aside from appearances, proper breast care is extremely important to our health. There are many factors that come to play when getting your girls in shape and it’s good to be informed. Even the slightest lifestyle changes can make the biggest difference. Knowledge is power people, or in this case knowledge is perky tits.
Why do they sag?
Breasts do not have muscle, they are made of fat, connective tissues and milk-producing glands, for anyone who has never had an anatomy class in their life. According to various studies, when a woman reaches her late thirties, her skin can become loose and begin to show signs of aging. This is especially true in the breasts, particularly if a woman has gone through a pregnancy. However age and pregnancy aren’t the only factors that cause sagging. There’s multiple reasons that your fun bags can start drooping.
Obviously, smoking is no good for any part of your body. Not only is it going to destroy your lungs, but studies prove that Tobacco damages skin collagen and elastin, which leads to premature wrinkling and sagging. Not cute. Make your D.A.R.E. officer proud and just say no.
Avoid Over-Tanning And Excess Sun Exposure
Excess sun exposure damages the skin particularly in our more sensitive areas. If you’ve ever been to Europe or gone topless on any beach without sunscreen, you know that nipple sunburns are a cruel punishment. Aside from the discomfort, your skin gets thinner and you end up with more creasing and wrinkles over the years. No thank you.
Make Sure Your Bras Fit Properly
Seriously though, bras that don’t allow your girls sit correctly or don’t give them any support at all are a big no-no. While bras won’t keep your boobs from sagging, well-fitted ones can reduce pain when exercising and improve posture. Not to mention, they’ll turn a few more heads.
Be Mindful Of Your Posture
In the words of Princess Diaries,”don’t shlump!” Most people have a habit of hunching over and rounding their shoulders especially when on the computer. This tends to make breasts look lower and heavier. Remind yourself to sit/stand up straight. You’ll be surprised at the difference it can make.
Maintain A Steady Weight
According to the Science Of Eating, gaining and losing weight continuously or failing to stay at a steady optimal weight, can take a toll on your breasts. Your skin loses elasticity when stretched. When you lose weight, you can lose fat from the breasts very fast as compared to other parts of the body. This continuous stretching and relaxing of the skin makes it droop and sag over time. So basically be consistent. If you’re going for that summer bod commit to it!
Exercising is always a good idea. While your breasts are not made up of muscle, certain exercises can improve the appearance of your pectoral area by strengthening surrounding ligaments, which may make them appear more lively. Girl, you better work.
Lube Up With Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera possesses natural skin-tightening properties that can help get rid of sagging breasts. The antioxidants in the plant also prevent damage caused by free radicals and help firm sagging breasts. So get our your Aloe and lube up!
Give Yourself A Massage
Massage your breasts at least 2-3 times per week with coconut or olive oil to help add firmness and increase the elasticity to the skin as well as improve the skin tone and texture. Using ice with your massage can also help tone the skin in and around the breast region. Think like that scene from 50 Shades except not quite as kinky, unless you’re feelin’ some type of way.
Drink Water And Lots Of It
According to experts at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals, the skin is comprised of cells that are predominantly made up of water. Lack of water takes a toll on the skin, and can make the skin over your breast look shrunken and dull.This could lead to premature aging of the skin around the breasts making it lose firmness and sag. Get that thirst quenched.
Own What You Got
At the end of the day the only opinion that really matters about your body is your own. So love the skin your in and take care of yourself. Boobs come in all different shapes and sizes and you should own what you got girl!
