A great way to help tighten the skin around your jawline, stomach, arms, and legs is to drink more water. That’s because water helps improve skin elasticity, making it bounce back from sagging.

Nonsurgical procedures, such as thermage, lasers, and peels, can change the composition of the collagen in your skin.
