Aging, pregnancy, and weight loss all cause your skin to lose elasticity that may result in sagging skin and wrinkles. Fortunately, there are many organic skin care products that lift and tighten the skin.
Six Organic Beauty Aids for Lifting and Tightening
The science of beauty has come a long way, and there are more organic options available now than ever.

The lotion can be applied to skin anywhere on the body as needed and is suitable for all skin types.
Bubble and Bee Organic Face Cream
This USDA certified organic face cream only contains three ingredients -- Shea butter, rose hip oil, and vitamin E -- but each is believed to fight the signs of aging and help tone and firm the skin. A version for men is also available.
The cream can be used night or day and, when used as directed, one jar lasts up to four months. Each two ounce bottle has a ten month shelf life.
Order from Bubble and Bee.
This face cream received rave reviews from very happy customers on Makeup Alley for containing ingredients that are gentle on sensitive skin, for its ability to quickly diminish dark circles and fine lines, and for its creamy texture. Reviewers also mention that the cream is very dense and heavy and can feel oily if too much is used, so a very little bit goes a long way. Some recommend combining the cream with a few drops of water for easier application.

Naturally Fight the Signs of Aging
There are many organic ingredients that can provide the skin with what it needs to help maintain a youthful appearance. Before using any product on your skin, perform a simple skin patch test to check for skin irritation that may indicate an allergic reaction. While it's natural to wish to age gracefully, there's no reason to accept that sagging skin and severe lines and wrinkles are inevitable. If gravity is starting to bring your skin down, fight back by giving organic skin care products that lift and tighten skin a try.
