Why Do You Need The Body Wrap After Losing Weight?

The skin is the largest organ in the body. It is comprised of cells and tissues. When you get bigger, just like when women become pregnant. Your skin is stretched out. Naturally the skin will just return to its original shape because of its elastic capacity. However, as the skin is stretched extensively, it loses its elasticity and damaged its collagen. Collagen is a protein amino acid and a part of the connective tissues that helps the skin gain its firmness and suppleness. However, as our age gets higher, the collagen production also slows down and the structures are weakened. And, the skin cells and tissues becoming easily damaged.
