How to Tighten Loose Skin on Face and Neck

How to Tighten Loose Skin on Face and Neck

The true secret to anti-aging is ensuring your skin stays firm; younger looking skin is tight skin, it’s supple and radiant, resistant to fine lines and wrinkles. As we age, our skin reduces its production of collagen and loses its elasticity, resulting in a complexion that can look loose and saggy

Although there are other factors that contribute to loose skin – such as weight loss, environmental stress and excessive sun exposure – getting older is undoubtedly the main cause of loss of firmness in your complexion. So, if you’re wondering how to keep your complexion looking young and fresh, tightening the skin on your face and neck is the first place to start. Read on discover our ultimate firming regime.

Although plastic surgery is without a doubt an effective method of tightening loose skin, face lifts, fillers and botox isn’t for everyone. Here at SkinStore, we believe in the power of premium skincare products to assist you in firming your complexion. A regular skincare regime, paired with a healthy and active lifestyle, is an effective long-term way prevent aging. And of course, if you have had surgery to tighten your skin, using products targeting to tightening and firming your complexion will help maintain the results of your enhancements for years to go.

    Apply a Firming Face Mask

    Although not for every day use, a firming face mask should be used once a week to enhance your tightening skincare regime. Tightening face masks can come in a variety of different ways, but we particularly like to use a sheet mask like the Erno Laszlo Firmarine Hydrogel Mask.

    With a super lightweight gel-like texture, the Erno Laszlo Firmarine Hydrogel Mask should be removed gently from it’s individual packet and be patted lightly onto the face. Leave on for up to 20 minutes whilst you relax and enjoy some me-time, during which the mask will mould to your face and penetrate deep your epidermis to nourish and tone your skin.

    After 15 – 20 minutes, simply remove the mask and pat any excess serum into your skin for added moisturizing benefits.

    Massage Your Face Using a Firming Moisturizer

    Using a firming moisturizer is a crucial part of a tightening skincare routine. After using a serum, apply the SkinCeuticals Skin Firming Cream to aid collagen synthesis in your face.

    The best way to apply a firming moisturizer is to massage this deeply into the skin. Not only will this help the ingredients to penetrate the epidermis, but the movement of the massage will help to tone and tighten your face over time. A little bit like helping your facial muscles to exercise, in the same way that exercising our body helps us to tone up there.
