Feel like your breasts keep on going ‘Down Down’!? 7 ways to get some lift in your lovelies!

Not feeling perky lately or worried about losing what lifts you up during the day!? No matter what shape, size or age, read on for seven ways to naturally bring bounce back into your breasts right now!
We asked what crucial concern you had in mind involving your overall beauty regimen and breasts were a biggie, no pun intended! I’ve been a B cup since high school, or have I been!? I breast fed not once or twice BUT four times! Things may have changed my loves. Why knowing your proper size is one way to improve your perk. Want to know more? Read on!
Contributing factors to sagging breasts may include a loss of elasticity due to rapid weight loss, childbirth, menopause, wearing the incorrect bra size and the effects of gravity. This may be the moment where you are like, “I am so far past this, there is no hope.”
Not so my beauty warriors. We must march on!
7 ways you can naturally give your breasts a lift:
  1. Posture
  2. Proper Bra
  3. Exercise
  4. Moisturize and Massage
  5. DIY Breast Masks
  6. Nutrition
  7. Health

1. Posture
Want to improve the look of your besties right away? Sit up. Not only does sitting up straight with your chest muscles open and shoulders back improve your mental mood, it strengthens your back muscles and lifts the breasts up. Breasts are predominantly fatty tissue located directly over top of the pectoral muscles. When you hunch over with your neck stuck out, such as when reading this computer screen, the tissue of the breasts is not only falling over to look saggy, it is stretching and the muscles in the back and around the shoulders are becoming weak. Two things you can do:

  1. Always imagine a string coming from the top of your head pulling you gently towards the ceiling. Mom was right!
  2. If you work long hours at a desk and have the option, use a chair that's ergonomically designed for proper support and designed for your height and weight. If this is not an option, try using a small pillow for lumbar support.

2. Proper Bra

It is very important to wear the right size bra not only for the immediate appearance of well balanced and lifted breasts but to protect the elasticity of the breast tissue and your health. The wrong sized bra can lead to pain, sagging breasts, health issues and poor posture.

If you wear too loose of a bra or too big of a cup, especially while exercising the bra can sag your breasts and make them heavier. Too tight a bra can lead to a lot of pressure on the shoulders causing pain that leads to poor posture, or pressure on the breasts that can cause lymph valves and vessels to close. Constant chronic minimal pressure on the breasts may lead to the failure of lymph nodes and consequently health problems including cancer.
Go in for a proper bra fitting! An immediate lift with long lasting benefits.

3. Exercise
Remember breasts are made up of fatty tissue and milk ducts placed atop the pectoral muscles that support them, and by doing chest exercises to build up this muscle group, breasts can receive the lift and support they need. Chest presses and pulls, arm raises, round-about push-ups, and dumbbell flyes will all work to strengthen your "pecs."
If you have kept up with us at all, then you KNOW we are yoga freaks! What can we say yoga appears to fix all from mood to boob. Yoga does wonders for stretching the chest open and working necessary thorax and back muscles while creating blood flow. Warrior, Triangle and Cobra Poses are all recommended to shape breasts. However, we suggest Bow Pose if you only want one.
Dhanurasana, or Bow Pose, can help reduce back pain. It stretches the spine and shapes the breasts.

  1. Lie on your stomach and exhale. Bend your knees and raise them behind you, toward your head.   
  2. Hold your ankles with your hands and exhale, then pull your legs and arms upward as far as you can.
  3. Your hips and breasts should lift from the floor, and you should balance on your stomach.
  4. Try to hold this position for 30 seconds.

4. Moisturize and Massage

Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed and Vitamin E are jam packed with antioxidants and fatty acids that can reverse the damage caused by free radicals and prevent sagging breast tissue. Shea Butter and Grapeseed Oil are both a high source of Vitamin E that tightens the skin to give you a tighter and firmer appearance of the breasts.
Lucky for you all of these ingredients can be found ready to use in our BEE23 Hotty Body Balms. Put some Hotty Body Balm onto your palms and rub them together to generate heat. Rub your palms over your breasts in an upward motion. Massage gently for about 15 minutes to increase blood flow and stimulate cell repair. Follow this remedy at least 4 to 5 times per week. We suggest to use your Hotty Body Balm after every time you bath or shower.

5. DIY Breast Mask
Another excellent remedy for lifting the breasts is a mask prepared from cucumber and egg yolk. Cucumber has natural skin-toning properties and egg yolk has high levels of protein and vitamins that can help treat sagging breasts.

  1. Puree 1 small cucumber in a blender.
  2. Mix in 1 egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of butter or cream to get a paste.
  3. Apply it onto your breasts and leave it on for about 30 minutes.
  4. Wash it off thoroughly with cold water.
  5. Use this mask once a week to firm and strengthen the breast tissues.

6. Nutrition
No crash dieting! The up and down change in weight, especially by 30 lbs or more causes stretching in the breast tissue like old stockings. You may be tired of hearing it but balance in all things my friends, seek lifestyle choices instead of quick fixes.

Eat healthy foods with essential nutrients like proteins, vitamins, calcium, minerals, carbohydrates and essential fats that are required to firm up the breasts. Green vegetables, seafood, seeds, nuts, chicken, fennel and lean meat all have qualities to protect and enhance the health of breast tissue.

7. Health

Simple choices in good health have a long term impact on keeping us perky in more ways than one! No smoking. Smoking weakens and ages skin by decreasing the blood supply to the skin surface. Limit alcohol consumption. Over indulging in alcohol will lead to the loss of skin elasticity leading to loose skin and sagging breasts.
Avoid sun exposure. Breasts and cleavage absorb UV rays from the sun, and they can easily get burnt. The sun’s UV rays are responsible for damaging skin, aging of skin prematurely and wrinkling of skin. AND drink lots of water for skin hydration. Think of your breasts like camel humps and keep them hydrated!

We hope this gave you a little lift to your day! If you get a chance to comment, then let us know if you found this article valuable and what else you may like to know. Stay happy, healthy and perky! To check out our BEE23 Hotty Body Balms for the perfect breast massage cream go to www.bee23.ca.
