Breasts tend to lose their elasticity and start sagging with time and age. In an effort to tighten their sagging breasts many women prefer going under the knife or start using tight push-up bras that do more harm than good. Sagging of the breasts is a sign that the body is producing less collagen, which is making the skin lose its elasticity.
This can be due to various reasons; age, menopause, pregnancy, multiple child births, obesity and breastfeeding. Whatever, the reasons for sagging breasts, you can now give them the much required lift by use of herbal treatments.
Top 5 Herbal Remedies for Breast Lift
Cleavers is also known as Goosegrass and is quite a popular herb due to its medicinal, tonic and astringent properties. It is the tonic and astringent effect of cleavers that makes it useful in tightening up the sagging skin of the breasts in order to give them the much required lift.
The leaves of cleavers are rich sources of tannins and flavonoids that help the skin re-gain its elasticity. Make a poultice using fresh cleaver leaves and apply it over the skin of the breasts to tighten the skin. Do this twice a day for two months.
Uva Ursi, or bearberry, contains very strong astringent properties and is often used in preparation of commercially available herbal astringents. The herb contains tannins and arbutin, and both have very powerful anti-inflammatory effect.
Arbutin is also responsible for preventing over-production of melanin thereby lightening the skin and reducing pigmentation to a great extent. To lift sagging breasts consume arubtin supplements every day as directed by your doctor.
We all know about the astringent and anti-inflammatory effects of witch hazel. It is one of the most popular herbs used in the production of various skin care products. However, its tonic effect also helps prevent and treat sagging of the breasts by firming and lifting them.
Prepare witch hazel tonic by boiling fresh leaves of witch hazel in a litre of water. Strain the mix and massage your breasts twice a day with the tonic to see the lift in your breasts.
Peppermint contains volatile oils and menthol that have cooling as well as analgesic effect. Massaging the herbal oil helps improve blood circulation, which is why it is used in the treatment of headaches and migraines. However, the volatile oils are also known to remove inflammation in the breasts so as to make them appear firm.
Mix peppermint oil with grape-seed oil in equal parts and then massage the breasts. Do this every day and within three months you will notice firmer and tighter skin around your breasts.
Slippery elm is also called Indian elm and has a spongy and slippery appearance because it is composed of plant fiber called mucilage, which is also an active ingredient. The herb is used in preparation of emollient creams and astringents because of its toning and firming effects.
It not only tightens the sagging skin of the breasts but also reduces any redness due to inflammation or infection. Massage your breasts every day with slipper elm based cream. Continue using the cream for four months to give your breasts the lift they require.
