Our skin undergoes drastic changes when we go through pregnancy. Sagging skin, stretch marks, varicose or spider veins, acne and various other skin related issues are common after giving a delivery. These can be emotional frustrating for women who want their bodies to go back to the way they were pre-pregnancy. In the postpartum period, along with weight gain, adverse effects are seen on the elasticity of the skin. Mothers have a wide range of natural remedies and preventions to control these problems like protein-rich diets, regular exercises and staying hydrated, however, they are not enough and sometimes require medical intervention.

The medical term for loose skin is hanging dermis. Recovering from stretch marks naturally is especially difficult when you are older, as skin loses its elasticity with age. Excess skin does not just accumulate on the belly but also hips and around your lower back and buttocks.
