One of the biggest complaints I hear from women over 50 is the sagging of facial skin. There are a number of factors that cause your skin to sag from loss of collagen production and thinning of the skin to a fairly new theory of facial bone loss that happens as we age. There are many skin creams on the market today that claim to tighten and firm skin however many of the over the counter skin firming treatments also contain ingredients that have been shown to dry out skin, cause inflammation, adult acne and even worse, cancer.
So what are your best options to firm facial skin while keeping your skin healthy? A natural skin cream of course! Here are some worth noting that contain skin firming ingredients without the addition of harmful chemicals such as parabens, fragrance and sodium laureth sulfate which actually cause skin damage.
