baby bump tummy

Hello there, I'm new here and registered to get advice on a specific problem as I'm not a bodybuilder. I had my second child one year ago and my stomach has gone back to its normal size and shape but the skin is still a bit loose. I am wondering if there is anything I can do about it. Would toning the muscles help or make it worse? That might seem a stupid question but the flatter the stomach gets, the looser the skin looks. I am taking vitamin E and using cocoa butter on it every day. If anyone has any advice I'd much appreciate it.

    Hi Renee, I think if you loose fat and get some muscle definition then your stomach is going to look beter regardless of some loose skin. It has been debated on here before I think so you could try a search for "loose skin", your skin takes a while to respond to changes, have you tried a firming lotion? keeping your skin hydrated will help the condition so keep up with the moisturisers.

    Hello - I just read another thread called 'tummy tuck' in which someone posted a useful article... I don't want to go down the plastic surgery route so I'll have to work out how to lose a bit more fat and build muscle, I guess. My weight loss was all baby, though - I didn't have a weight problem before or afterwards. I don't believe rubbing cream into it will make much difference but I'll keep on doing it anyway. Thanks for your reply, jess.
