Loose skin. It’s awful. Truly one of life’s hindrances. After years of extensive dieting and exercise, you finally win the battle, only to have yet another battle to fight. You’re at your ideal weight, you can fit into clothes you couldn’t even look at before, and then you thought you could parade around the beach without the crude taste of embarrassment on your tongue.
Life is full of surprises.
But there is hope. You are not the only poor soul to suffer from loose or sagging skin after major weight loss or pregnancy. Millions of people have the same problem, which is probably the reason you see more and more men and women wading around pools and beaches with sweaters on.
Okay, so the sweater thing was a bit much. But you understand the point I’m making. Loose skin is a problem for a great many people, and regardless of what you may have heard, Dr. Cataracts and his knife is not the only option.
A Natural Recourse
Sea salt is a great skin care treatment. It exfoliates and moisturizes, which in turn tightens skin. You can apply a thin layer of the solution while showering, or if you fancy, pour it into your bath and relax.
Not only will it tighten your skin, but it’s also been known to improve skin tone and remove toxins. A good quality solution will run you about $ 28 at a beauty shop.
Another natural way to improve skin (specifically skin elasticity) is to eat healthier foods, such as olives, coconuts, tomatoes, cucumbers, salmon, blueberries (yum!), and carrots. You should also drink plenty of water, and, every now and again, sip a cup of green tea. These foods are not only healthy for your skin, but healthy for your entire body!
Adding yeast and aloe vera extract and soy proteins is another good way to improve skin elasticity.
You might also consider visiting a gym and having your percentage of body fat measured. Once you find out your number, you can work at replacing that fat with muscle, which may also help tighten skin.
The Last Resort: Dr. Cataracts
Natural remedies are definitely something you should try before considering plastic surgery, but if they don’t work, surgery may be your only remaining option. The liposuction procedure is a very popular way of improving skin elasticity, as well as removing any remaining fat bulges your dieting and exercise didn’t snuff out.
Liposucton is a very simple medical procedure with few risks when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, whose name probably won’t be Dr. Cataracts. But if it is, just make sure they don’t actually have cataracts.

Long Horn Cattle
Image by Len Radin The Texas Longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to 7 ft (2.1 m) tip to tip for steers and exceptional cows, and 36 to 80 in (0.91 to 2.03 m) tip to tip for bulls. Similar cattle were imported by Spanish colonists into other parts of North America, including California and Florida. Horns can have a slight upward turn at their tips or even triple twist. Texas Longhorns are known for their diverse coloring. A longhorn can be any color or mix of colors but dark red and white color mixes are the most dominant. Texas Longhorns with elite genetics can often fetch ,000 or more at auction with the record of 0,000 in recent history for a cow. Due to their innate gentle disposition and intelligence, Texas Longhorns are increasingly being trained as riding steers. Genetic analyses show the Longhorn originated from an Iberian hybrid of two ancient cattle lineages: "taurine" descending from the domestication of the wild aurochs in the Middle East, and "indicine", descending from the domestication of the aurochs in India, 85% and 15% respectively by proportion. The Texas Longhorns are direct descendants of the first cattle in the New World. The ancestral cattle were first brought over by Christopher Columbus in 1493 to the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. Between 1493 and 1512, Spanish colonists brought additional cattle in subsequent expeditions. The cattle consisted of three different breeds; Barrenda, Retinto and Grande Pieto. Over the next two centuries the Spanish moved the cattle north, arriving in the area that would become Texas near the end of the 17th century. The cattle escaped or were turned loose on the open range, where they remained mostly feral for the next two centuries. Over several generations, descendants of these cattle evolved the high feed- and drought-stress tolerance and other "hardy" characteristics that Longhorns have become known for. Early US settlers in Texas obtained feral Mexican cattle from the borderland between the Nueces River and the Rio Grande and mixed them with their own eastern cattle. The result was a tough, rangy animal with long legs and long horns extending up to seven feet. Although this interbreeding was of little consequence to the makeup of a Longhorn, it did alter color. The varieties of color ranged from bluish-grey, and various yellowish hues, to browns, black, ruddy and white, both cleanly bright and dirty-speckled. Portuguese cattle breeds, such as Alentejana and Mertolenga, are the closest relatives of Texas Longhorns. As Texas became more heavily settled following annexation by the US, the frontier gave way to established farms and ranch lands. The leaner longhorn beef was not as attractive in an era where tallow was highly prized, and the longhorn's ability to survive on the poor vegetation of the open range was no longer as much of an issue. Other breeds demonstrated traits more highly valued by the modern rancher, such as the ability to gain weight quickly. The Texas Longhorn stock slowly dwindled, until in 1927 the breed was saved from near extinction by enthusiasts from the United States Forest Service, who collected a small herd of stock to breed on the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Lawton, Oklahoma. A few years later, J. Frank Dobie and others gathered small herds to keep in Texas state parks. They were cared for largely as curiosities, but the stock's longevity, resistance to disease and ability to thrive on marginal pastures quickly revived the breed as beef stock. Today, the breed is used as a beef stock, though many Texas ranchers keep herds due to their link to Texas history. From Wikipedia
