Effective Skin Tightening Ingredients

Skin tightening ingredients which promote firm and beautiful looking skin!
Effective active ingredients listed below.

I am a skin care junkie I have bins and bins of creams,liquids,masks...you name it for my face as well as my body. I think it is better to prevent then to treat. I have many creams for firming as well as wrinkles & fine lines! Bum bum bummmm !! What we all cringe at. It is hard to find a cream that works for you while delivering results and not fighting with your skin as far as oil goes and heavy application, breakouts,ext.... Thought I would list a few ingredients and what they might be doing being placed in your bottle of awesome. Some people purchase their miracle bottle without knowing what the ingredients even do. It's nice to know. Maybe knowing you ll feel like your winning the battle when you apply your daily applications. Well... I do anyways :)

I apply my dramatic firming cream 2 sometimes 3 times a day !! When I wake up (clean face), after my workout (clean face), & before I go to sleep (clean face) I find it works well for the base of my makeup as well.

Avocado Oil - a rich and deeply-penetrating oil which has moisturizing and healing properties. This avocado extract has many nutrients such as essential proteins, potassium, beta-carotene and vitamins A, D, and E that keep your skin healthy and nourished.

Grapeseed Oil - a potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and creates an invisible film on your skin to lock in moisture. It is effective for maintaining and repairing your skin's health and appearance.

Emu Oil - Above all, emu oil can make your skin softer and glowing. It is also anti-inflammatory, won't clog pores and is odorless. Over time, studies have found that emu oil can plump up your skin and help diminish wrinkles and age spots! IT is known as the skin's best repairer.

Green Tea - Also known as the slimming extract. It not only alleviates the effects that nature has on the skin by being our strongest known anti oxidant it also has been proven to help melt away stubborn fat deposits

Macadamia Oil - preserves your skin's essential oils and replaces the ones lost throughout the day. An effective antioxidant that easily absorbs into your skin to protect skin cells from aging, and at the same time revitalizing it with essential nutrients to make your skin supple, smooth and glowing.

Shea Butter - a natural moisturizer that rapidly absorbs into your skin without leaving a greasy feeling. It works as an emollient to soften your skin, soothe inflamed areas, reduce scars and smooth out fine lines.

Phytessence Wakame - a Japanese Sea kelp that works to block enzyme hyaluronidase that attacks your skin's hyaluronic acid. This is crucial since hyaluronic acid is like a glue that keeps the collagen and elastin fibers together so your skin maintains its elasticity, smoothness and tone.

Gota kola - The extracts from this ancient plant improves circulation to the skin as it strengthens skin. It's known to reduce the appearance of scar tissue and stretch marks.

Hyaluronic Acid - usually only found in expensive anti wrinkle face creams this ingredient holds 5000 times its weight in moisture. It penetrates and repairs dried out skin that has become collagen deficient

Aloe, Shea and Illepe Butter Blend - Very important for the new skin that grows in. For skin that has lost its elasticity it has usually become deficient in manufacturing new skin therefore the new skin made is not as healthy as it should be. NOT as firm! These ingredients change that.
Matrixyl for stretch marks- this ingredient combination has been proven to firm skin as well as heal stretch mark tears and also c section scars or scars caused by stretch marks.

Marine Split Collagen - Most collagen is so thick that it cannot pass through the skin. It merely sits on top of the skin. This split collagen has been divided so that it is small enough to be deeply absorbed by the new skin. (A major breakthrough in skin firming and anti wrinkle as well as scar creams)

Now that you are aware of the skin care ingredients that tighten skin naturally, you will find a skin tightening cream that is safe, healthy, deeply moisturizing and effective.
