A flat stomach after giving birth… Is it possible? Of course you can tighten your stomach skin after it loosens because of pregnancy, and very easily too. All you have to do is follow some simple daily steps.
A flat stomach after giving birth… How?
1 No strict diet
It’s not right to follow a strict diet directly after your baby’s birth. You need to follow a healthy balanced diet that provides you with a lot of nutrients and fibres, in addition to elastin and collagen, which are necessary for healthy skin.
So add food rich in vitamins A, B, C and E to your table. They’re necessary to maintain your skin elasticity, cool it down and provide it with collagen.
Have eggs, milk, chicken, walnut and almond, fatty fish, sunflower oil, …
Don’t eat too much salt, as it could cause water retention in your body and saggy skin
2 Sleep well
This becomes harder with a baby crying at night and needing feeding, diaper changes, etc.
However, you can find a solution; sleep when your baby is sleeping during the day. This will also keep you from eating between meals and gaining extra weight, especially in your belly.
3 Take care of your body skin
You can keep your skin healthy, especially your stomach skin, first by following a healthy diet and trying to get enough sleep.
However, you can also support that with other necessary care, like using moisturizing creams rich in vitamins.
We also recommend that you use shea butter or rose essential oil products. They have components that help you get rid of saggy skin. You can apply them on your skin after delivery.
No matter what care product you want to use, apply it with circular movements and gentle massaging, and don’t forget to heat it with your palms first.
4 Work out
6 months after your baby’s delivery, and after seeing your doctor, you can do some exercises like yoga, walking and swimming.
We also recommend that you do this easy daily exercise: Lie on the floor. Bend your knees and lift them up towards your head. Put your hands on your legs and make a circle with your knees. Repeat this 5 times in every direction.
