I know how overwhelming it is to look at firming facial cream ingredients. All the strange words written on a bottle can often be very intimidating.
My best advice is to keep it as simple as possible. Know which ingredients are scientifically proven to work and then look out for those ingredients. If they’re not on the list, then go find another one.
So anyway, listed below are the top ingredients you should look for.
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) – These come in many different forms but the most popular are lactic acid, glycolic acid, and citric acid or vitamin c. These fruit extracts have been proven to reduce wrinkles, smoothen the skin and tone the face.
Many of the popular facial firming products have one or a combination of these AHAs.
Alpha Lipoic Acid – Dr. Nicholas Perricone is a big proponent of this ingredient and it is one of the main ingredients in his skin care products.
There aren’t as many conclusive studies about Alpha lipoic acid but it is more and more becoming a common ingredient in many facial firming cream and serums.
DMAE – This is probably the most potent ingredient you would want to have in your facial firming cream. As of time of writing, this is the one ingredient which studies have shown to be the most effective in tightening and firming up the skin.
