What Goes Into the Best Skin Firming Face Creams

You won’t find the best skin firming face lotions behind a fancy cosmetic counter in an up-scale department store. You will find the highest priced products there. But, if you want something safe and effective, steer clear of those fancy bottles and fast-talking salespeople.

Designer names and celebrity endorsements might tempt you, but you should know that the claims made by these companies are based on one or two active ingredients. Those ingredients are present in very low quantities. The majority of the cream is water, petrolatum, glycerin or other inert, ineffective compounds.

The manufacturers take these compounds combine them and add artificial preservatives, fragrances and colors. Then they sell it to you with their advertising and marketing campaigns.

They claim to provide the best skin firming face creams, yet they come out with something “new and improved” every year or two. The company majors know very little about the skin’s or the body’s overall health. They DO know a lot about how to get people like you and me to buy their products.

If you’re like me, you want something different. You’re tired of forking out hundreds and hundreds of dollars, while waiting to see results that never come.

Topical creams can only be effective if they contain the right ingredients that support your skin’s natural rejuvenation processes and overall health. Here’s what the best skin firming face lotion contains.

Functional Keratin

In clinical studies, this ingredient has been shown to increase firmness by 42% after only 18 days of use. After just one use, volunteers’ skin was 27% firmer. We lose firmness, because we lose the ability to retain moisture.

The presence of fatty acids and proteins that “hold” our skin cells together decreases over time. The body starts producing fewer new cells. The older cells contain more free radical molecules and fewer antioxidants to counter them. The best skin firming face care products address all of these issues.

Wakame Kelp

A kind of seaweed, this ingredient has been shown to inhibit an enzymatic activity that reduces skin levels of hyaluronic acid, one of those proteins that “glue” the cells together. Over a period of five days, the enzymes that break the protein down were reduced by 52%. So, protein levels naturally begin to rise, again.

Coenzyme Q10 & Natural Vitamin E

Coenzyme Q10 is one of the most potent antioxidants that we know of. Skin levels are quickly depleted in the presence of UV radiation from the sun. As I mentioned above older cells contain fewer antioxidants to counter free radicals. If un-countered, free radicals damage the cellular membrane and they break down important proteins like collagen. This leads to sagging, wrinkling, loss of firmness and all of the signs of aging.

Vitamin E is a well-know antioxidant, but most companies use a synthetically created version. If you’re like me, you know that natural is always better.

So, that’s what the best skin firming face products contain. It’s worth you time to look for them.
