Firming lotion?
Has anyone had good results using firming lotion? The more weight I lose, the more flabby my skin is getting. I am still much better off overall, but if there is a miracle lotion out there, I am all for it! Based on limited Internet research, I ordered some Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion due to positive reviews. Anyone tried it? Any other non-surgical options besides exercise in the target areas? Thanks!

I've never heard of it, but if it works I'd use it. Keep us updated with your results.

MSM cream... I haven't bought it yet, but I will order some, and I take 3 MSM capsules a day for the last couple weeks, and that is supposed to help as well. I have terrible, terrible saggy, non-elastic skin, all my life since I was a kid even. It's rather depressing lol. I can see myself being one of those candidates for skin removal.

I really don't think anything like this works. think about the physiology involved... if it DID work it would be both very dangerous and horribly expensive, right?

I just stick with my dry body brushing routine. Keeps my skin very soft, and firm... Taking colloidal sillica also helps with firming the skin from the inside out. For the rest, staying hydrated, being active, your age and good genes are in my opinion the only things that may help.

You may have some small effect with taking regular mineral salt baths too.

i read in a good housekeeping magazine that any lotion with caffeine will help tighten temporarily. They recommend St Ives Cellulite lotion. It's cheap and on my list of things to try. good luck!

i googled and found the article online, google "good housekeeping caffeine lotion for cellulite" They mention some other options there also.

Nivea Body Skin Firming Moisturizer - It really does work. The Q10 in it is what does it I think. My dermatologist told me to try it. But I use Walmart's version of it - the Equate brand, so that may make a difference, but Nivea was just to expensive for me.
