i had a c-section 8 months ago and ive got abit of loose skin on the bottom of my belly as skin looks abit bumpy, if i exercise eg sit ups, it will improve the skin or not??

It will help to tone up the skin but won't make it completly flat (unless your very lucky) as you will be excercising the stomach muscles under the skin and not the skin iyswim.

make sure you are doing the sit ups properly tho otherwise you'll push your stomach muscles to pop out!
