Firmness

Skin loses firmness over time from sun damage and age. Firmness can be shored up by deeply hydrating the skin and by stimulating your skin’s collagen renewal process. Use hydrating moisturizers with ingredients that bind and retain water in all levels of your skin. Look for PCA, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, squalane, and oils (if you are not acne-prone). Stimulate collagen renewal with professional levels of retinoids (ie. retinol and tretinoin), vitamin C, and glycolic acid.

I want to mention an interesting second benefit of glycolic acid. At professional levels of 10% or higher, this ingredient further stimulates your skin to make more of its own hydrating hyaluronic acid, which binds water, and thus plumps skin that is struggling with a lack of firmness.

Always sun protect skin that shows signs of losing firmness because sun damage is the main cause: free radicals formed from UV ray exposure start a cascade of events in your skin that leads to a loss of collagen and other important structures – the end result is a loss of firmness.

  1. Cleanse with a cleanser appropriate to your skin type. Consider adding a Clarisonic Brush system (such as the Clarisonic SMART Profile or Clarisonic MIA 2) to deeply clean skin to enhance penetration of your corrective skin care ingredients. Exfoliating twice a week helps skin product penetration as well.
  2. Correct with products that contain vitamin C, retinoids, and glycolic acid.
  3. Hydrate with moisturizer appropriate to your skin type and look for some of the key ingredients I mentioned above.
  4. Protect with zinc oxide sunscreen, a hat, sun-protective clothing and by seeking the shade!
