Loose Skin

Postby chenrko420 » Thu Oct 02, 2008 3:04 am

I currently have loose skin on my cheeks from losing 60 lbs 2 years ago. I was wondering if these loose skin cells are dead cells and whether applying creams and lotions containing aloe vera, lactic acids, and etc. will have an impact on it.

I can't see a scientific basis for a lot of lotions and potions used on skin today I think the only way to tone up loose skin after weight loss is by exercise although I can understand the difficulty with it being facial. I would discuss it with your GP if it concerns you.
