What’s in Skin Firming Creams?
As a very insightful grandmother once said, “It’s important to get your wrinkles before they get you. You need an anti-aging or firming cream by the time you’re 20.”
Want tighter skin without the struggle of surgery? So do we. Cosmetic surgery is expensive, there are side effects. As we age, our skin doesn’t produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. So what that means is that as we get older, our skin sags. Woohoo! Do we get a goody bag with that life achievement? No? But we should! And inside said goody bag should be a variety of the best skin firming creams or treatments.
There are loads of creams, treatments, lotions and potions on the market that can help add elasticity back to your skin. They can help rebuild collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid and the effects won’t fade unlike fillers.
What Ingredients Should I Look For?
Some companies claim that anti oxidents and vitamins will restore elasticity, though dermatologists may disagree. Instead, most dermatologists will suggest creams filled with collagen and elastin.
Collagen is a protein in the skin, or beneath it, that helps to hold the skin tight. Once our bodies produce it slower, our skin begins to sag. See? One of the saddest cause-and-effects known to womankind. Elastin is another ingredient you definitely want in your firming cream. Elastin is a fiber that helps maintain the best and proper elasticity of your skin. Fire that fiber back up and get your skin elastic, hydrated, and firm again.
Keratin is another ingredient that should alert you of a highly effective cream. It helps stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, feeding your skin all the nutrients it wants and needs to ease the fine lines.
If you’re working to fight cellulite, an ingredient to scout for is caffeine. Alongside L-Carnitine and retinol, caffeine can work to kindly firm up your skin. The three ingredients attack cellulite by drying the excessive moisture from skin, inducing collagen production, and improving elasticity.
There are many natural ingredients that will also aid you in your quest for the best firming skin potion out there. Fruit extracts, vitamins A, C, E, and oils like coconut or sunflower oil will help you on your quest.
