Default Exercise and loose skin

I'll preface this by saying I really hope this doesn't sound silly; I'd just like to ask. I've been wondering whether exercise that creates a lot of sudden impact for the body (ex. jumping jacks) can aggravate loose skin by making it "bounce" all over the place? I.e. If someone's skin elasticity is already poor and has resulted in loose skin, does the "bouncing" effect of the skin continually stretch it on a micro level that, over time, can result in even greater looseness? I hope that makes sense
In August 2013, I wasn't sure if I could try to lose weight again, but I convinced myself to give it all I had just until October 31, 2013, at which point I would revisit my goals. I told myself I'd be pleased with my decision in the future. When October arrived, I felt deeply grateful indeed. It's been 24 months and over 121 lbs lost, and I remain deeply grateful every day. There are no words to explain how worth it the hard work is.

No, it doesn't.

Try to incorporate some weight training, or if you're concerned about a specific area, like your tummy, do some leg lifts or planks to tighten it up.
But it's not like silly putty....

No it will not.
But if you want really tight slim body you should do weight lifts, leg lifts, cycling, Aerobics.
