Supplements to tighten skin after weight loss

You've lost weight and feel good: congratulations! Maybe you've undergone a weight loss surgery or experienced another form of rapid weight loss. Maybe you worked to build muscle mass. Regardless of the mode of weight loss, feel proud! You might be continuing to fight poor body image and notice that your skin elasticity has decreased. Body image reflects physical and emotional challenges, so let's address one facet of that and look at some supplements that might help tighten excess loose skin.

These supplements might come as pills, powders, or firming creams. VitaBright offers a variety of capsule supplements making the integration into your daily life easy and accessible.

3 pillars of skin elasticity
  • Collagen Hydrolysate: Also known as hydrolyzed collagen, this increases the strength of your skin's collagen and is a form that's been broken down for easier consumption and absorption

  • Marine Collagen: A form of collagen produced from fish and helps address wrinkles and sagging skin

  • Protein and amino acids: The amino acids lysine and proline directly aid in collagen production

A variety of vitamins help hydrate the skin which can help with firming loose skin

Vitamin A aids with skin hydration and works directly with the dermis and epidermis, the top two layers of your skin 


Collagen makes up about 80% of our skin, hair, and nails. It's in charge of providing skin rigidity and plumpness. The epidermis is the top layer of our skin, and it lays on top of the hypodermis. The hypodermis holds fat cells and when those deflate and go away, the epidermis doesn't have anything to hold it up. Increasing collagen intake can help tighten loose skin after weight loss.

It's best to think of collagen helping from the inside out. Using a powder or a pill to get your collagen might be more effective in the long run instead of using firming creams that contain the same ingredients. Bone broth contains many healthy things, most predominantly collagen. It also can help with gut and joint health.
