Firm Breasts: A Simple Guide To Keep Your Breast Perky & Healthy

Health & Medical Blog

Your breasts have a lot to deal with, like aging, mistreatment, malnutrition, and gravity. You should strive to keep your breast perky, healthy, and firm. The following simple guide will help you do just that. 

Simple Protection

Yes, even simple protective techniques can help keep your breast firm and beautiful. Consider adopting the following:

  • Consider sleeping on your back. Sleeping on your side or face down may stretch and put extra stress on your breasts, which may cause them to sag eventually.
  • Make sure your bras fit perfectly and fully support your breast. Walking and running puts a lot of stress on your breast due to gravity. This may eventually weaken the elasticity around your breast skin.
  • Do not let your weight fluctuate too much. Weight changes stretch your skin and puts stress on the elasticity of your breast.
  • Keep your breast away from too much sun. Overexposure to UV rays can damage your collagen cells, which are responsible for your breasts' health.
  • Stay away from cigarettes. Cigarettes break down elastin, which is a protein that keep your breasts firm. This the reason why smoking can cause your breasts to sag.

Strength Matters

The two ways to strengthen your breast area are exercise and skin elasticity. Consider the following:

The first thing you should try to incorporate in your exercise routine is pushups. You do not have to do too many of them, just a few of them every day to help strengthen your chest muscles. This helps your breast muscles sustain the weight of your breasts, which fights gravity. Try the following exercises:

  • Try a normal pushup with your hands directly under your shoulders. 
  • Extend your hands in front of you and place your fingertips at a 45 degree angle towards your face. 
  • Try to do at least 10 pushups each day for your desired results.

You also want to make sure that your skin is in perfect condition and that you strengthen the elasticity properties of your skin. You can do that by simply taking more collagen and vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for collagen-building and processing. Collagen repairs your skin and increases elasticity. Consider adding the following foods to your diet:

  • Cabbage
  • Soy products, like tofu or tempeh
  • Beets
  • Berries
  • Flax seeds
  • Walnuts

As you can see, there are a few things you can do to protect and keep your breast perky and beautiful. And your breasts will thank you. If you aren't satisfied with how your breasts look, even after caring for them, consult with a center, like Center For Plastic Surgery, about a breast enhancement.

introducing your daughter to the gynecologist

Having a daughter comes with a number of challenges. One challenge that you will one day need to tackle is determining when to introduce your daughter to the gynecologist.

Having gone through this twice myself, I have learned quite a bit and have included a lot of helpful information in my site to help other parents get through this complicated time a little easier.
