If the beauty genie came to your door to grant you just one wish would you choose to instantly have your perfect body or perfect skin?
Those very rare individuals who have effortlessly flawless skin would probably be surprised to hear the majority of Australian women would opt for great skin over a Victoria’s Secret model worthy bod. But anyone who has ever suffered from acne, rosacea, aging, dullness or sun spots, you’ll know how confidence-crushing skin woes can really be.
Given this, we’re not all that shocked to hear that the majority of Australians are more concerned about their skin tone and texture than they are about their weight. The Cosmetic Physicians of Australiasia and cosmetic medicine website Costhetics conducted a survey of 751 Australians which showed the following results:
58.5% of respondents said skin tone was the most concerning aspect of their appearance
38.9% ranked the appearance of fine lines
34.7% ranked loss of volume in the face and weight

When you’ve just lost a significant amount of weight, it’s very common to experience excess loose skin. This is possibly the ONLY bad thing about healthy weight loss but it can feel like a bit of a downpour on your ‘check out my new body’ parade.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways that those currently trying to loose weight, those thinking about starting a lifestyle overhaul for weight loss and those who have already lost weight can get their skin back in tip-top shape.
1. Don’t Delay Another Day
Are you in the ‘thinking about it’ stage of weight loss? Don’t delay. The older we get, the less elasticity our skin has and the less likely it is to bounce back. 2. Drink Water
Healthy, elastic skin needs water. Drink up. 3. Try a Serious Salt Scrub Scrubbing your body helps to encourage increased blood flow. Increased blood flow is a fast-track to healthier skin. Try having a good scrub with our De Ageing Saltmousse Papaya-Pineapple once or twice a week and watch your skin become silky smooth and supple.4. WeightyAmbitions
Building muscle will help eliminate that saggy skin. If you’re not doing weights already, start. If you are, are you really pushing yourself? 5. Five a Day
Eat your fruit and veg because there nutrient-dense goodies will give your skin a boost. Not to mention help you keep that weight off for good! 6. Use Green Coffee
Green Coffee helps to eliminate water stagnation and toxin retention, both of which cause cellulite and loose skin. Try our Smooth & Tone Body Svelt Cream and Gel to dramatically improve your skin’s overall texture. 7. Don’t Sunbake
As if there weren’t already enough reason to stop lying out in the sun, the sun damages the quality of your skin meaning, you guessed it, decrease elasticity. If you’re in the sun use SPF. If you want a tan, fake it. 8. Be Patient
This piece of advice plays a part in every stage of your weight loss journey. Lose it slowly so your body has time to adjust and you don’t fall into the traps of yo-yo dieting (all that stretching and shrinking can seriously wreck havoc on your elasticity levels). When you’re at your goal, celebrate and be patient with your skin. Indulge in a good scrub each week and enjoy looking after your skin, nothing worthwhile happens overnight!
