Many women are insecure about the size and firmness of their breasts. Breast augmentation is still the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure for women and breast lifts are said to have grown at twice the rate of implants in 2014. Breast lifts work to raise the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape the cleavage, but this doesn’t always go without complications. Thousands of women each year witness difficulty in breastfeeding and irregularities in the shape of the breasts after treatment. Moreover, the procedure can seriously damage the nipples and breast tissue. With an ever-increasing rise in cosmetic surgery claims, it’s therefore not surprising that more and more women are opting for natural remedies to achieve firmer breasts. For those who are insecure about the shape of their breasts, we’ve therefore listed 5 natural remedies to achieve firmer breasts.
Cucumber and Egg Yolk
To reshape sagging breasts, create your own breast mask using cucumber and egg yolk. Cucumber has natural skin-toning properties, whilst egg yolk contains high levels of vitamins and protein that can make your breasts firmer. Just mash a cucumber in a blender, add a teaspoon of cream or butter and one egg yolk, and apply the paste to your breasts. After about half an hour, you can wash it off using cold water. If you apply the mask once every week, you’ll strengthen and firm the breast tissues.
Aloe Vera Gel or Almond Oil
Another way of firming your breasts is by massaging them with aloe vera gel or almond oil. Aloe vera contains many vitamins and amino acids that stimulate the growth of your breasts and improve the blood circulation, which will help to tighten your boobs. Almond oil has a similar effect and can lift up the breasts by boosting the blood circulation to the breasts. By rubbing in the oil, you will also exercise the muscles, which can tone up the breasts and prevent them from sagging.
The oil of fenugreek is an old remedy that can improve the elasticity of breast tissues and eventually enhance your breast size by producing synthetic estrogen that stimulates the growth of new breast cells. It also works to combat free radical damage and can smooth the skin around the breasts. You can create a paste by mixing fenugreek with yogurt, vitamin E oil, and egg white and apply it onto your breasts. Leave it in for 30 minutes before rinsing it off and repeat once every week.
Ice massage can also help to firm your breasts. Cold temperatures naturally strengthen the skin and slow cellular movement. Just take two cubes of ice, put them in a plastic bag and massage your chest area with it for a minute. Don’t go over a minute per side, as the skin on your breasts is very sensitive.
Finally, there are hundreds of exercises you could do to firm your cleavage. Swimming is a great way to tone up your breasts, as you’re continually exercising your pectoral muscles during the workout.
Other ways to lift your breasts is by doing yoga, push-ups, shoulder pressing or wall-ups. These exercises will build the muscles behind the breast tissues and ultimately make your breasts appear firmer and lifted.
