We all crave that youthful, firm-skinned look—unless you’re completely immune to the beauty pressures of society and in that case, hats off to you! For most of us lowly mortals, however, smooth skin is better than finding a $100 bill on the ground. It helps us feel more confident to face the world, literally. And although there’s many wonderful things that come with aging such as wisdom, no periods and retirement, we still have to battle wrinkles. So, to level up in the looks department, we must resort to skin tightening creams, treatments and of course, our reliable rescuer, Mr. Makeup. Here are the top tricks.
Rosehip oil is a prime ingredient in many of the high-end skin tightening creams. But, who knew you didn’t actually have to buy the cream? If you simply purchase rosehip oil separately, you can enjoy its rejuvenating benefits without breaking the bank.
This wonderful oil contains many restorative and moisturizing properties which repair the skin and reduce wrinkles. To enjoy its effects, simply dab on a bit over your crow’s feet, forehead and smile lines before bed. You’ll wake up with smoother skin, changing how you feel about your morning ritual stare-down routine. Things are looking up!
Your next line of defense against the signs of aging is an illuminating bronzer. The bronze helps tone and tan your face, while the illuminator gives the appearance of brightness. Yes, it’s a double wammy!
To apply, dust it over the areas where extra enhancement is needed: the frame of your forehead, bridge of the nose and cheekbones. You’ll experience an instant boost of color and radiance, making you feel so good, it may even replace your daily coffee—or at least your need for a second cup.
With the chaos of the internet, there’s so much confusion and misinformation about skin tightening creams that really work. Many people think if they go for a high-end fashion brand, they’ll be getting something special. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
If you pay attention to ingredients, the high-end stuff contains most of the same junk as the regular drugstore brands. So, in the end, you’re really just paying for a name.
Many women trust Erase Cosmetics because it’s backed by scientists, dermatologists and researchers. When the brand came out with its 3-Minute Instant Facelift Serum, women went gaga because it shows visible results.
Better than any store-bought toner, sea weed is the crème-de-la-crème of toners. When applied, it alkalinizes, purifies and cleanses your skin, while minimizing the size of your pores. With long-term usage, you’ll notice its skin tightening effects too.
Sea weed is also highly moisturizing, giving your skin a drink without disrupting its natural Ph balance. Ultimately, there are very few products on the market that can perform these jobs without also causing some adverse side effects such as oil production or dull skin. Because of course, there’s always a catch. But with sea weed, you only get the payoff—and never pay the price!
Benonite Clay Mask
You’ve probably heard about the magical skin tightening powers of bentonite clay, but how many of you actually bothered to try it? Well, hopefully this will be the last time you overlook a useful beauty tip.
Benonite clay is made from volcanic ash and has the ability to draw-out toxins from the skin and body. As a bonus, the clay itself has a wide range of nutrients and minerals, including calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, and iron. So, not only will it detox your skin, it’ll also replenish it!
Using these skin tightening tricks will initiate you into the exclusive club of women who know better. Don’t listen to the magazines, media hype or exaggerated marketing claims about the latest anti-wrinkle treatment. Let science and nature be your guide.
