Healthy and Natural World suggests several natural ways to tighten loose skin after dramatic weight loss, including monitoring and slowing down the weight loss (the faster weight is lost, the less time the skin has to naturally tighten), increasing water intake, keeping skin moisturized with Vitamin E or coconut oil, increasing blood circulation by getting regular massages and building muscles with weight resistance training.
