After months in a cocoon of oversized sweaters, plush blankets, and scarves wrapped up to your chin, it can be a little intimidating to swap them out for sun dresses, sleeveless tops, and sandals. For most of us, a couple of extra holiday cookies and the February 15 chocolate sales have left us questioning why we skipped out on pilates way back in November.
While you could spend your last month before Spring heading to the gym to tone away all of those cozy nights watching Netflix on the couch, innovative skincare products could help you reverse dimpling, sagging, and the appearance of creping skin.
Sculpt, Tone, and Moisturize Just in Time for Spring
Skincare experts have unlocked the secret to a “workout in a bottle,” using the same fundamental building blocks that you would find in firm, youthful skin.
As we age, our skin naturally loses density and elasticity. Collagen, which gives your skin structure, and elastin, which helps your skin literally “bounce back” after being stretched, begin to deteriorate. Free radicals play a big part in this, along with UV exposure and environmental pollutants.
While the best method for keeping your body toned and sculpted is maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, body firming creams are an easy way to give your skin a little extra love when life gets too busy. They contain proteins, peptides, and caffeine to help smooth and plump, while powerful moisturizers go to work helping you recover from the harsh winter air.
One of our favorites is SkinCeuticals Body Tightening Concentrate. It’s specially formulated for loose, sagging skin on the places that are most affected by cellulite, gravity, and the signs of aging, including the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
Powerful, nurturing ingredients like tri-peptide and rice protein, provide a dose of skin-loving amino acids to help rebuild cellular structures, while yeast extract goes to work fighting against free radical damage. The results are beautiful, firmed skin perfect for showing off in your favorite springtime style.
We are also proud to carry Revision Skincare BodiFirm. Working off of the knowledge that skin on the body is fundamentally different from skin on the face and decolletage, BodiFirm is formulated to specifically target skin concerns from the neck down. In addition to contouring your skin, it will also help improve the appearance of sun damage, restore hydration, support a healthy skin barrier, and promote long-term skin health by support the skin’s natural microbiome.
Using patent-pending iFirm™ Technology, a unique combination of peptides, antioxidants, botanical extracts, and a prebiotic, you will see visibly firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Caffeine fights off free-radicals, while glucosamine gently exfoliates to smooth and soften skin, aiding in the absorption of the product.
Stop Dreading Warmer Weather!
Winding down from winter can be a little intimidating, especially if you let your normal health and beauty routine slip.
