Is E45 cream good for saggy skin?

#1
I have been looking at creams to moisturise my body.

I'm aware that E45 cream is thick and really moisturising, does anyone know if this will help with the elasticity in our skin whilst we lose this weight, I have only lost 9lbs and i'm 28 but already i can see that in between my legs seem a little saggy.

I am aware of bio oil but that is really expensive and i have quite an area to cover

well off to cover myself in cream hey i'll be bathing in it soon lol:D

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but skin that has lost its elasticity is just that ... skin that has lost its elasticity. The damage to the fibres in the deep layers of the skin has been done .... BUT

it's not all gloom and doom. Creams and massaging can improve the appearance of the skin's surface (and makes the skin feel great too)! E45 cream is probably as good as any other for that.
Also, toning exercises can help the look of a saggy area so why not consider swimming or cycling - both brilliant for exercising the legs.

I use bio-oil and and dove products. Bio oil is bloody expensive but my skins feels and looks a lot better than it did and I have been doing it religiously morning and night. I think once the elasticity is gone it's kinda gone but massaging the creams and lotions and potions makes my skin smell and feel wonderful, with Bio-Oil I have found that the texture has changed as well making it smoother and less blemishy (if that makes sense). I think just lavishing some care and attention onto your skin and body and massaging in circular movements helps too - but then I'm a sucker for beauty products/hype and the like :D


Before starting LL, I had large upper arms and thighs not to mention my apron like stomach, now that I am losing weight my once firm (with fat - but firm nonetheless) arms and tummy and thighs are showing signs of sagging, a lot of ladies have seen great results with toning exercises and going by their pics it has certainly been worth it as they look fabulous.

Someone on here (was it cerulean?) said that you can get the Bio Oil beneffits from adding a few drops to a cheaper moisturiser.
What a good idea!

marvellous, Cheers sandra and whom ever came up with the idea. Off to a stockist it is then.

I think if i start moisturising now before i lose tooo much weight it will give my skin a bt more of a chance.

Not sure if it still is but Bio Oil was going really cheap (just a couple of quid) at Home & Bargain - might be worth checking out.

Would also recommend body brushing. I do it a couple of times a week, and Ithink it really helps. My cellulite is virtually gone, and my skin feels amazing. I like the superdrug vitamin e cream as well. They do tubs of it for a couple of quid and it feels great just to slather it all over.

Curlygurl, do you brush before a shower/bath and without water (dry brush)? I have terrible cellulite - I always thought it was hereditary? And no amount of lotions/brushing helps. I have just ordered a brush, bio oil, and some Burts Bee vitamin e lotion. Fingers crossed!

Great tip about the bio oil, will definitely try that as my arms in particular are already looking scary!
