Sagging breasts (ptosis) are a common complaint for many women and this occurs in part because of  a loss of elasticity due to rapid weight loss, childbirth, wearing the incorrect bra size and the effects of gravity. Breasts consist of fatty tissue and milk ducts placed atop the pectoral muscles that support them, and by doing chest exercises to build up the “pecs” breasts can receive the lift and support they need.

Some women, however, may feel they have gone past the point of no return as it pertains to the downward shift of their breasts, but there is no need to worry.  By using certain foods, oils and herbs in combination with exercise one can maintain the shape of her breasts in confidence. If you are looking to reverse the hands of time or slow the effects of gravity, here are five home remedies to help firm sagging breasts.

Olive and other oils

Rich in antioxidants and fatty acids that can reverse the damage of free radicals and help with sagging breasts, olive oil is great to use in tandem with breast massage to firm breasts. Place a bit of olive oil in the palm of the hand, warm the oil by rubbing the hands together and massage the breasts in an upward motion for 15 minutes to stimulate blood flow and healthy cellular production. Doing this four to five times a week will help to improve the lift and facilitate in keeping breasts healthy. Jojoba oil, argan oil and almond oil can also be used in this massage.

Cucumber and egg yolk 

This mask created from cucumber and egg yolk is loaded with high levels of protein and natural skin toning properties that will help to firm sagging and improve the appearance of the skin. To create this mask, one small cucumber must be pureed in a blender along with one egg yolk and one teaspoon of butter or cream to make the mixture into a paste. Once the mask is created, it should be applied to the breasts and left on for 30 minutes.  After the treatment is over, the mask should be washed off thoroughly in cold water. Using this mask once a week is recommended to firm and strengthen breast tissue.

Shea butter

Shea butter is a favorite for many of us because of its ability to moisturize the skin without the additives. It is also a great agent to use for firming the breasts because of its high concentration of vitamin E that tightens the skin. To use shea butter to help firm the breasts, warm the butter up between the palms of both hands and massage in an upward motion for about 10-15 minutes. Let the shea butter sit on the breasts for another 15 minutes and then remove the excess butter with water. Repeating this process three to four times weekly will improve the appearance of sagging breasts.
