5 Habits that Cause Breasts to Sag
Everyone knows that you can’t fight the effects of time and, sooner or later, we all have to accept old age with all its symptoms at some stage of life. Because of this, you might think your breasts won’t be the same after you’re 40 or 60 years old because with the passage of time they lose their firmness, causing them to eventually sag. But there are things you can do every day to delay this sign of aging and prevent early onset, because some of your daily habits might be causing them to begin to sag sooner than they should.
Lots of factors can reduce the firmness, tone, and youthful appearance of your breasts. This includes, for example, the number of children you breastfeed, dramatic changes in weight, and even the type of bra you wear. But most women ignore other important factors that can also cause this problem.
Your breasts are one of your most attractive features, a tool of seduction and sensuality – by caring for them properly you can keep them looking younger longer. In today’s article we’ll share some habits that you should avoid if you want to avoid having sagging breasts early on in life.
Wearing the wrong bra
This is one of the most common culprits that’s too many women ignore. Bras are made of flexible materials that are easily adjustable to the body. But many women don’t wear the correct size, and a poor fit can lead to sagging breasts. Ideally you should choose a proper size and fit that’s not too tight. Up to 80% of women wear the wrong kind of bra – are you one of them?
Smoking is a vice that not only affects your overall health, it also causes the skin to lose its elasticity, making your breasts sag and wrinkle more easily. This bad habit reduces the amount of collagen in the skin and worsens blood flow. The result is that your skin shows the signs of aging prematurely.
Constant fluctuations in weight
Dramatic and sudden weight loss can cause the skin to lose its firmness and reduce body fat. Your breasts are made up of glands and fatty tissue, which is why losing weight can cause them to sag. Related to this, you almost always see sagging breasts in women who follow a diet that causes their weight to fluctuate up and down. By having a balanced diet, you help maintain the tension beneath the skin that’s responsible for keeping your breasts lifted. So it’s ideal to maintain a healthy weight through a balanced diet.
Not using sun protection
In spite of the many warnings about the risks of exposure to the sun’s harmful rays, many women still don’t use sunscreen to protect their skin and their health. This bad habit also affects the firmness of the breasts, because the neck and chest area is one of the largest recipients of direct sunlight. The sun’s rays cause the skin to burn, wrinkle, and age prematurely. You should always use a good sunscreen before exposing yourself to UV rays and try to avoid excessive sun exposure as much as you can.
Not getting exercise and having poor posture
Exercise is one of the keys to keeping your breasts firm and round. It’s important to know how to exercise the chest, however, because certain backwards and forwards motions can reduce the amount of collagen in the breasts and cause them to sag more easily. Be sure to provide them with ample support during your exercise sessions, particularly if they’re high impact, and maintain good posture throughout the day. Having good posture both while walking and sitting helps keep your breasts firm, so try to keep your back straight and your chest high.
