To tell you the truth, the only thing that can restore the breasts’ shape and size, if they changed dramatically after childbirth and breastfeeding, is a surgeon’s scalpel. But don’t despair right away! First of all, many women seem to think that their breast should return back to normal instantly—the next day after they stopped nursing. It is impossible though—the restoration of the mammary glands’ shape and size takes several months, in some cases up to a year or a year and a half. This is not the right moment for surgery but a perfect one for applying all sorts of bust care cosmetics. During this time the skin responds to external stimulation really well, and the natural recovery process can be enhanced and sped up.
The three crucial factors in the process of the breasts’ shape restoration are:
- the strengthening of the muscles, supporting the breasts;
- physical stimulation of the skin’s tonicity and breast support;
- cosmetic care with active ingredients enhancing the skin’s elasticity in this area.
Pectoral muscles are not the only ones that need strengthening. The upper back, neck, ABS and shoulder girdle have to be stronger too: the tone of your deltoid affects the tone of the skin on your breasts, believe it or not.
The easiest way to physically stimulate the skin is a shower massage of the bust area with cool water. Choose a soft spray setting with moderate water pressure and massage with circular motions for 1–2 minutes morning and night.
Last, but not least, today you can find many cosmetic solutions for breast care and some of them are actually effective. Your cream (emulsion, serum… ) should moisturise the skin and contain active ingredients improving the skin’s elasticity. The special ‘bust care’ ingredients are the extracts of Kigelia Africana fruit, wild yam, Pueraria Mirifica, clover flowers, soy beans, as well as geranium essential oil and some others. Some peptides can enhance the synthesis of elastin in the skin too, for instance Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Matrixyl-3000 and some others. Bust care solutions should be applied regularly, morning and night after a shower.
With constant care in just a few months your breasts will seem perkier, and the skin will be smoother and more elastic, making the bust area in general look appealing. In many cases it will be enough—even if the breasts’ shape is not quite the same anymore, they still look good. If not, well, there’s always surgery.
