1 Monitor weight loss

3 Go for weight resistance training

Weight resistance and strength training exercises basically strengthen muscles by creating a layer of muscle underneath your skin, and this layer will help in making your skin firm and tight.

You may have lost significant pounds and with that some muscle may have also been lost, so try regaining those muscles as they will help you get a tighter layer of skin. Do strength training exercises at least 3 times a week every other day for best results.
