With aging comes the natural drooping and sagging of breast tissue, something that is more noticeable in women with bigger cup sizes. A breast lift is often the most practical solution to this problem but for those who refuse to go under the knife, there are a few natural alternatives to whip those sagging breasts back into shape.
Breasts sag because our muscles start to weaken as we age. As we grow older, chest muscles which support the breast start to lose their firmness and elasticity, causing the breasts to droop down and succumb to the forces of gravity. Exercise is perhaps the best way to keep the chest or pectoral muscles naturally strong and taut. Regular exercise can help keep your chest muscles upright, which in turn provides the right amount of support for your breasts. Dumbell lifts, internal shoulder rotations, shoulder raises and ab planks will help strengthen the chest muscles, giving your breasts something to hold on to. Other important and effective exercises include chest flys and push-ups.
When the tissues are adequately hydrated, it is easy for cells to stay firm and plump. You may not eliminate sagging just by drinking water, but you can make sure that your breasts are healthy and hydrated. Regular use of moisturizers such as natural oils can also help maintain the proper hydration level of your skin.
The right kind of support can give you the perfect non-surgical lift that you are looking for. Make sure that your bra can support the weight of your breasts without being so tight that the straps dig into the skin. Choose supports made of durable material to keep your breasts in place as you move. Health experts also recommend wearing support on a regular basis even if you do not yet see signs of sagging since regular support will help keep your back straight and your breasts lifted, which promotes proper circulation around the chest area.
