Loose skin

  1. Loose skin


    My workout partner has lost around 80lbs since we started training with each other. 380 down to the 300 mark. Hes packed on muscle and toned up quite a bit. Hes curious how he can tone up some of the loose skin. Its not bad he has just come so far
    . any hints out there from anyone who has had the same situation..thanks


  2. Many congrats to your partner! Age is going to play into this a good bit. I started dropping lbs in my mid-30s and now 5-6 years later everything is pretty tight except my stomach. It has tightened up noticably, but I think at my age I'll always have some extra skin there.

    That being said, the best thing I've found to do is stay hydrated (at least a gallon of liquid a day) and keep the loose skin moisturized. Moisture is key to that stuff tightening back up!

  3. Age is a big factor and skin elasticity. Taking supplements too support that may help. But for certain people... surgery is the only way to truly lose unsightly loose skin.
