Does Firming Cream Really Work?
Whether you want to face it or not, summer is finally here. And, even if you’re not ready to hop into a swimsuit in front of a group of people, you also don’t want to be that person hiding in a cover-up while at the beach. If you’re not ready to get into a swimsuit because of cellulite, a loss of elasticity in the skin, or a variety of other reasons, you have a few options, including firming cream— to give you the confidence you need. But does firming cream work? From looking at the ingredients to analyzing your skincare issues, this article will help you better understand what a firming cream can do for you. Read on to learn more.
Look at the Ingredients
Before purchasing just any over-the-counter firming cream, take a close look at the ingredients. For instance, you are going to want to get a firming cream that contains ingredients like retinol, caffeine, and dimethylaminoethanol— all of which are known to help improve your skin’s elasticity and overall appearance.
Please note that if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or are planning on becoming pregnant, a firming lotion with these ingredients may not be healthy for you and your baby. Consult your doctor before you start using one of these lotions.
Look at Your Areas of Concern
When trying to decide if a firming cream is going to do the trick or not, take a close look at the areas of concern you have and are trying to target. For instance, if you have a lot of weight to lose and cellulite you want to conceal, a firming lotion likely won’t do the trick. If, however, you just have a small amount of elasticity that you’ve lost, then a firming lotion may be beneficial. Remember to be realistic with the results you want.
Firming creams and lotions are good for a small percentage of people. However, there are other procedures that we offer at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery that we can use to help you get a tighter, more slender body.
