Every woman loves and desires to have perfectly shaped breasts, but as women cross the age of 30, drooping of breasts is a general issue faced by many. Breasts are made of fat, connective tissues, milk-producing glands, and it does not have any muscle.
Many women feel insecure by its droopy appearance and it’s true that breast tissue can’t completely revert back to its initial prime condition. Breast “ptosis” — the medical term for sagging is one of the most commonly treated conditions by plastic surgeons.
What causes droopy breasts?
- Breastfeeding: Common stage where women are more prone to having sagging breasts.
- Vigorous exercises: If you always exercise vigorously for a prolonged duration without proper support can cause connective tissue to break.
- Menopause: Caused by hormonal changes.
- Overweight: Having excessive weight causes the skin and breast tissue to stretch and droop.
- Extreme weight loss: Drastically alter chest shape and breast appearance after losing a lot of weight in a short amount of time.
- Smoking: Causes skin to lose flexibility and strength.
However, good news! With the right combination of exercising, healthy eating, and some effective natural remedies, you can easily make yourself feel good, look good and need not go under the knife to achieve your desired results!
1. Exercise your whole body and not just chest muscles
As breasts consist of mostly fatty tissue and mammary glands, you can’t technically “lift” them. However, the pectoral muscles that support your breasts can be trained and toned for a natural lift. Engaging your whole upper body with proper workouts can improve your posture and breasts appearance.
Some exercises that are beneficial:
- Weighted chest presses
- Weight chest flys
- Elbow squeeze
2. Be mindful of your posture
There’s always benefits in maintaining a proper posture. Not only it makes you look better, longer, but it also removes unnecessary stress on joints and tissues that causes sagging. By maintaining a good posture, weight can be distributed evenly, preventing chest and back pain.
Tip: always stand with your shoulders back, head straight, and stomach tucked in. Imagine standing against a wall to measure your height to maintain this good posture!
3. Proper eating habits and a healthy weight
Sticking to a well-balanced diet can prevent weight fluctuations that can damage breast tissues. Load up on protein to build those pectoral muscles. Select lean protein sources like chicken, turkey, beans, eggs and nuts. Incorporate healthy fats and vitamin, mineral and calcium-rich food like fatty fish, kale, cauliflower, avocadoes to improve skin texture, making the breasts look firmer. Limit consumption of alcohol, caffeine, and drink plenty of water to promote skin elasticity!
4. Breasts massages
A massage therapy can help relax, firm, toning the breast muscles, and also allows you to check for lumps. It is recommended to use olive oil to massage as it is a great source of antioxidants that greatly improves skin texture and elasticity. Through the massage, you will be able to rub nourishment into your tissues and muscles to tighten them. It prevents wrinkled skin and stimulates blood flow surrounding the breasts for a natural lift.
5. Quit smoking
Smoking causes tissues to become less firm and elastic. It also destroys elastin and collagen that are responsible for skin beauty, and thus, accelerating your aging process. Blood flow is gradually affected, slowing down the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your cells, causing you to have premature wrinkles and age faster.
Beware! This step can be a little uncomfortable and gives you chills (literally), but it is said to be highly effective. Massage a couple of ice cubes in circular motion around your breasts for 1 to 2 minutes. It will help to tighten the muscles and also fight cellulite around the treated area.
7. Choose the right bra
Did you know that by choosing the right bra, it can naturally lift your breasts? Your bra should lift your breasts from a supportive brand and cups that are snug but comfortably “cups” your breasts to reduce bounce. The band, cups, and shoulder straps should not leave indents on your skin, and should not have spillage or extra spaces.
