The truth about collagen

What Does Firming Mean In Skin Care?

When looking for the ideal skin care product, you might have come across firming creams. But what does this mean – and do they actually work? Read our guide to find out.

Also known as facelift creams, these skin care products are specially formulated to give the appearance of plumper skin. These creams are typically used in later life, to preserve youthful looking skin.

They contain collagen or elastin – elastin being the support fibre in the body that enables skin to ‘bounce’ back into place.

The skin looks firmer as the collagen binds your skin together more tightly. This helps to reduce the appearance of dimples and sagging skin. Firming creams should also be excellent moisturisers that help to plump the top layer of skin. This in itself can make your skin look smoother and tighter.

To get the most out of the creams, apply twice a day – morning and night. Creams are best applied before make-up.

Which skin care ingredients are firming?

If you want to know what ingredients to look out for, we’ve got organic and plant-based ingredients that will give your skin a firming boost the natural way.

Amino Acids

Amino acids can be found in Pentapeptides which help to boost your skin’s moisture content. This is an essential part of skin care and prevents the signs of ageing.

  • Smoothes, firms & tones
  • Building blocks of collagen & elastin
  • Supports skin structures

Vitamin E

Vitamin E can be found in soy oil and is a fantastic anti-aging antioxidant for your skin. The natural forms are known to be more potent and last longer in skin than their synthetic counterparts.

Vitamin E protects the skin from outside elements that can have a negative impact on skin, including  UV light exposure.

We recommend looking out for these two ingredients for firmer, healthier-looking skin.

At Organic Apoteke, we apply these ingredients to many of our products, including our firming creams. Shop natural firming face cream online at Organic Apoteke today.
