Breasts that fall out, or more scientifically, breast ptosis, is a phenomenon that many women fear as they get older. The skin loses its elasticity as we grow older, and those cleavages that used to be so proudly displayed in the past are now hidden behind sweaters that reach up to the neck.
This very annoying (although perfectly normal) phenomenon can come from many sources such as age or too much repeated exposure to UV rays. In cases where it proves to be too annoying, we suggest three effective methods to remedy it and regain your 20-year-old breasts!
1. Massage your breasts with pomegranate oil and Aloe Vera.
According to an article published in The International Journal of Molecular Sciences, pomegranate oil has antioxidant properties that help prevent wrinkles and maintain skin elasticity. A second study published in The Advanced Biomedical Research confirms these benefits, and even adds that pomegranate may help combat photoaging of the skin caused by repeated exposure to the sun’s UV rays. Simply massage your breasts once a day for 5 minutes.
Aloe Vera is also a great ally when it comes to firming the skin. A study conducted by The Journal of Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine on skin aging reportedly concluded that Aloe Vera gel would improve the viscoelasticity and moisturizing properties of the skin. Its benefits are believed to include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-UV radiation properties. Simply apply this gel to the breasts and massage them a little and leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. This should be repeated 4 to 5 times a week.
2. Firm breasts thanks to these 3 exercises
Firming up your breasts is a goal that most women dream of achieving. Indeed, who wouldn’t want to regain the breasts of their youth? The 3 exercises that we propose help reshape your breasts, reduce the excess fat that has settled there, and strengthen the pectoral muscles located underneath.
To perform this exercise, lie on your stomach and push your body upwards with your arms. Your palms and feet should be slightly apart, and your body should remain straight and sheathed throughout the exercise. Bend your arms and lower your body to the floor before moving up. Remember to exhale when you return to your original position.
Developed lying down with dumbbells
Lie down on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Push these dumbbells upwards by stretching your arms and hold this position for 10 seconds. Make sure you follow your shoulder line as you raise your arms, and that the palm of your hand is facing the ceiling. Then lower the dumbbells by lowering your elbows slightly below your shoulders.
Extend your arms above your head
This last exercise is very simple. It can be done with or without dumbbells, depending on the level of difficulty you wish. It simply consists of standing with your legs slightly apart and lifting your arms above your head.
3. The cold shower
Despite what one might think, cold water showers are not a form of underhanded torture but a source rich in benefits that are often underestimated! In an article relayed by our colleagues from Le Figaro, the women’s magazine Madame highlights the advantages of cold water showers. Indeed, this technique very often relegated to the background behind the hot shower, which warms and relaxes us, is very effective in improving blood circulation and toning the skin.
Cosmopolitan magazine confirms this beauty tip in an article on bad shower habits and refers to the opinion of Dr Mona Gohara, a member of the Advanced Dermcare dermatology centre in the United States. She explains that cold water tightens pores and produces a moisturizing action on the whole body, as opposed to hot water which tends to dry the skin.
