1. Moisturise Regularly
The key to taut and youthful-looking skin is hydration, so keeping breasts firm after breastfeeding can be achieved as long as you moisturise! You can use any kind of moisturiser over your whole body, but make sure to focus on the chest area. Choose a body moisturiser that's gentle on the skin and without chemicals or fragrances that could cause irritation to you or your baby. Also, make sure to choose one with highly nourishing ingredients such as Shea Butter or Aloe Vera for the best hydrating and breast tightening action.
2. Breast Firming Creams
An excellent way to get the benefits of daily moisturising as well as added breast firming and toning benefits is in the form of a breast firming cream.
Not only do these contain ingredients known to deeply moisturise the skin to keep it looking smooth and strong, but they also contain specific ingredients intended to lift and tone the breasts. Look for a cream that contains ingredients such as Collagen for tightening, Ashwagandha or Ginseng for toning and Jojoba Oil for nourishing.
3. Wear A Supportive Bra
One of the biggest things that women often get wrong in their life is their bra size. Whilst you can try a bra on and it fits, it doesn’t mean it fits right or that it's supporting your breasts. This is especially important when it comes to pregnancy and breastfeeding as your body will continue to change all the time.
Make sure to regularly check that your bra still fits correctly and is supporting your breasts as they change. Many bra shops offer free measuring services if you’re not sure. Also, remember to take your bra off when sleeping so it doesn’t limit blood circulation.
4. Breast Firming Exercises
Regular exercise can help to tone and firm your pectorals, the muscles below your breasts, as well as increase circulation in the area. As a result, some of the best exercises for firming your breasts are anything that tones the pectoralis major and minor.
Try doing some push-ups and chest-presses each day or add them into your regular exercise and workout routine. You can also try adding weights to your exercises to enhance the intensity.
5. Foods For Firmer Breasts
Did you know that certain foods can help firm your breasts? Specific foods contain a compound called phytoestrogens. This is a plant-based compound that mimics the natural estrogen within the body.
Therefore, adding this compound to your diet can be a natural way to perk up your breasts without having to resort to surgery. Phytoestrogen-containing foods include flaxseeds, soybeans, edamame beans, tofu, sesame seeds, garlic, berries, peaches, broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts.
