I have a few wrinkles cropping up at age 38, but that is not my concern. I feel like my skin is not as tight as when I was in my twenties and is sort of sagging a bit. Is there a cream that can actually help firm the face?
Dear Sagging skin,
Loss of skin elasticity comes with aging and cannot be reversed, but can be slowed down with healthy lifestyle and limiting exposure to the sun.
Face firming creams may help tone the face, but will not permanently reverse the signs of aging. Some face creams and lotions can boost the skin's resilience and firmness, and improve skin tone as long as the product is being used. In addition, it may take 4-8 weeks before any improvement can be observed.
For day use, it is best to use a cream that has an SPF of 15 or higher, or use a foundation makeup with at least an SPF 15.
High average positive ratings have been given to the products below by consumers at Sephora.com, DrugStore.com, and Makeupalley.com.
