Question Tricks to tighten skin for competition

Hey there, I'm about to do my first figure competition since having baby number four. I was wondering if anyone knows of any tricks or tips for temporarily tightening loose skin, mainly in the glutes and lower abdominal area. I will feel so much more confident if my skin was just a tad tighter.
