    Loose Skin - Weight Effects from Lotions?

    Hello!

    I am midway through my first round and prior to starting this, I'd already lost 55 lbs, I'm now down to almost 70 pounds lost since I began my weight loss journey in February. I've noticed a problem however, I have loose skin forming around my inner thighs, stomach, batwings, and my neck. My neck is what is really driving me crazy because I can see it, and I know others can too. I'm only 36 and I currently look like I have the neck of my mother (not really that bad but its a massive hit to my self confidence).

    My question for you all - what would be the actual impacts to my weight loss if I used firming lotions? I have a laundry list of lotions to try, but I want to maximize my weight loss as much as possible. If I used lotion daily, maybe even twice a day, what would be that impact? Anyone have a good idea of that?

    Thanks!
    Eve

    Hey Eve!

    I'm not sure how well firming lotions work. I've bought some in the past, but my skin was never loose enough for me to notice a difference. However, it's best to wait until P3 to use most lotions -- especially if they contain oils. Also, I've heard that loose skin tends to tighten up on its own during P3 and P4. During P2, I like to do dry skin brushing and hot/cold showers to help with loose skin.

    R2 - 23-shot - SW 183.8 / LIW 170.0 -- (-13.8 lb loss)
    R3 - 40-shot - SW ?

    I haven't used lotions for firming but I have done dry brushing and use an awesome Japanese Exfoliation cloth in P3/p4 every other day. I have five kids so I already have loose skin and stretch marks everywhere, especially tummy. But the brushing and cloth have done wonders in toning/tightening skin and reducing stretch marks. I'm not sure about loose skin on neck. Perhaps you can do some research and see if there are other treatments aside from firming lotions without surgery. There's gotta be more stuff out there. Best wishes!
