Let’s face it: your skin will start to sag when we reach the big 3-0. We’re pretty sure you would feel a bit worried too about what happens next. Well, you probably know the drill: the skin loses its strength and elasticity as people age. That’s because we lose collagen and elastin which both hold our skin tightly. These two components of the skin’s deeper layer (dermis) are responsible for tight skin. However, while aging does take its toll, other factors like genetics, sun damage, weight changes and gravity are at work as well.
What you can do about it then? Is there a way to firm and tighten your skin without surgery?
While there is no easy fix to sagging skin, fortunately, there are ways to bring back the youthful plumpness and resilience of your skin. Better yet, you can do it without going under the knife.
The “Active Treatment”
You’ve probably read somewhere that a good moisturizer can help correct skin laxity by sealing in moisture and making skin plump and tight. However, the effects will only be temporary. You can use heavier creams or lotions but the downside is that the heavier the cream, the more it will likely to clog your pores, which can cause acne breakouts. What the beauty industry calls, the “active treatment” is a much best way to help tighten skin with the use of over-the-counter skin care products. Vitamin A, also known as retinol, Vitamin C serum, alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) or beta hydroxyl acids (BHA) can be applied to skin at night to help your skin to renew itself faster and look firmer.
Skin tightening treatment encourages the growth of new collagen in the treated areas and promotes the absorption of more collagen from surrounding untreated areas
A Healthy Dose of Antioxidants
The less antioxidants you have, the more damage can be done to your skin. Have you ever heard of free radical damage? Free radicals can be created by pollution and by our good old friend – the sun. Signs of free radical damage on your skin are often characterized by brown spots and weakened, saggy skin due to the damage to elastic fibers in the skin. Free radicals can also create wrinkles as a result of collagen breakdown.
Antioxidants are your best weapon to help you fight skin damage caused by these bad guys. Replenish antioxidants by consuming food sources high in antioxidants, such as fresh berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries), green tea, fish and nuts. Antioxidants found in skin care products such as serums can also help restore your skin’s firmness. Ace-Ferulic is a skin damage restoration and photo aging defense serum that contains antioxidants, Vitamins C and E that protect skin against the harmful effects of free radicals. It also promotes collagen production to help improve skin elasticity and minimize fine lines.
Slather on UVA or UVB Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Daily
The sun’s harmful rays can damage your skin even on a cloudy day. Opt for a sunscreen that contains titanium dioxide or zinc oxide as they sit on top of the skin, forming a barrier against UVA and UVB that protects your skin as soon as you put them on.
With these skin care regime, getting tighter skin is possible without surgery.
