How can a cream lift and tighten skin? Something like Guinot Liftosome is incredibly effective because its formula has been studied and reformulated over and over again. Now with new research coming through every week, skin care brands can study their products and continually improve.
Here, with the help of Paula’s Choice, we look at what creams need to contain to really firm and inject some youthful good looks into skin that may have seen better days!
Sunscreen is at the top of the list of ingredients that has a hugely beneficial effect on skin! Sun damage is considered by experts around the world to be one of the primary reasons skin loses its buoyant flexibility. Daily sun protection from a product of SPF 30 or greater is critical. Shockingly, research shows that less than 20% of us are using sunscreen every day, especially not on our necks, chest, and hands! That needs to change!
Broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater not only helps reduce the risk of early signs of aging, but also reduces the risk of skin cancer. Sunscreen is a powerhouse youth-preserving skincare step, and it’s never too late to start.
Products loaded with antioxidants and skin-restoring ingredients are incredibly important. These two types of ingredients help defend against environmental attack and help renew the appearance of firmness and lift. Potent antioxidants and skin-restoring ingredients make all the difference in the world for skin.
Daily use of a leave-on, gentle salicylic acid (BHA) or glycolic acid (AHA) exfoliant can make a huge difference—we can’t stress this enough. Along with exfoliating for noticeably and dramatically smoother and more hydrated skin, these ingredients help skin’s resiliency bounce back. You don’t need to use both an AHA and BHA, one or the other is fine; if you like, you can alternate them.
Retinol and niacinamide applied topically can improve almost every aspect of your skin. Both are skin-transforming, superhero ingredients that can address almost every imaginable skin concern—appearance of wrinkles, loss of firmness, and enlarged pores—and can revive the look of plump, youthful suppleness.
