As you get older, your skin starts to lose its elasticity. This means that your face will begin to lose the ability to bounce back after being stretched or pulled. Which can lead to sagging skin, wrinkles, and other unsightly aging effects on the face. Luckily, you can use various products and treatments to tighten the skin on your face without spending a fortune on plastic surgery. Here are four of the most effective ways to tighten the skin on your face that has been proven to be both safe and effective by thousands of skincare users around the world.
1) Use a retinol cream
Retinol is a type of vitamin A that helps with aging, acne, and wrinkles. Retinol can be applied directly to the skin or taken orally in the form of supplements. When applied topically, it acts as an exfoliator by removing dead skin cells and stimulating collagen production. The best way to use retinol cream is once or twice a week at night before bedtime as part of your skincare routine.
2) Get a micro-needling treatment
Micro-needling, also known as needling, fractional laser skin resurfacing, dermal abrasion, or collagen induction therapy is a technique for temporary cosmetic improvement of the skin. This technique works by causing pinpoint bleeding which in turn initiates the body’s natural healing process (the creation of new skin). The best time for micro-needling is one week after shaving or waxing. You should avoid this treatment if you are sensitive to pain or have any active acne issues. It is important to speak with your aesthetician about your skincare regime before starting micro-needling because it may be used in conjunction with other treatments such as chemical peels, Botox, and facials.
3) Use a face mask
Facial masks are a great way to moisturize, cleanse and tighten skin. They’re also a fun activity that you can do with your friends. There are so many different types of face masks out there, but here are the four best: clay, mud, peel-off, and sheet masks.
Clay is one of the most popular types of facial masks because it dries up and pulls out all the impurities when washed off. If you have dry skin or acne-prone skin this is an ideal mask for you. Peel-off facial masks use ingredients like aloe vera gel or fruit extract as their base.
4) Try LED light therapy
LED light therapy is a new skincare technique that uses LED lights of various colors and intensities. To penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production for tighter, younger-looking skin. It’s recommended that you wear sunscreen during treatment as the lights can cause sunburns if you are not careful.
LED light therapy is available in different forms including self-administered, professional treatments at a clinic, or home devices. For the best results, treatments should be done every day for five minutes at a time. Sessions last about three months. With noticeable improvement starting around month two when your body has received enough stimulation to start healing itself.
