21 Years Old and I have Loose Skin on My Arms

Hi - I am 21 years old and I have loose skin on my arms. I also have saggy breast and I feel very insecure about it. What should I do?

I think you need to do exercise. Swimming will be ideal. It will tone the rest of your body and make you strong. I had loose skin on my arms earlier this year. I was upset with it for a while and tried different postures to hide it. Then I asked online how to remove it. I was advised to take regular exercise. So since that day, I have been jogging regularly. The skin under my arms has become firm.

Hey - I'm sorry to hear you're unhappy with the loose skin on your arms. The good news is that you're only 21 and your skin is very elastic at this age. I have a few questions for you before I make some recommendations. 

1) Are you at your goal weight? 

2) Are you happy with the size of your breasts? 

Don't worry - we all go through image issues. I know exactly what you're going through. I've worked really hard to improve my own image and it took me years to be comfortable with who I am.
