How to firm and plump skin up

2

Do you want a youthful glow? Young, plump skin sags naturally as we age, but there are ways to slow down and even reverse some of the damage to keep your complexion ageless. Learn our tips and tricks to get plump skin easily.

Why do I have sagging skin & loss of firmness?

Normal chronological aging, gravity, lifestyle choices and UV exposure can cause the skin to lose its firmness. Over time all these factors can bring on a gradual breakdown of your skin’s connective tissue and the surrounding dermal matrix’s ability to function optimally, which appears on the skin via lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity.

Skin can appear slackened or loose, and in more severe cases, even hang. This sagging appearance is usually most noticeable along the jaw line, the middle of the face by the brows, and the mouth. Keep reading to see the best skin plumping treatments:

 

How to get plump skin

1) Plump Start

This skin plumping serum is a plum-infused antioxidant concentrate that instantly improves fullness and smoothes out fine lines.  Powered by Collagen-4 Complex™, this intensive plumping concentrate surges moisture deep into surface levels and soaks skin with vitamin C charged antioxidants to scavenge skin-aging free radicals. Three Australian wild plums plus a moisture-magnet marine bioactive push hydration through the epidermis to help support skin’s natural volume.

Plump Start is intelligent hydration that reads your skin and penetrates where it’s needed – to visually improve the look of skin’s wrinkle valleys and crevices.

2) Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum

This revolutionary all-in-one youth serum helps plump skin along with tackling all of your other anti-aging concerns. It’s packed with peptides that actually target your skin’s youth collagen for firmer, more elastic skin; plus vitamin E and Coenzyme Q10 to make your skin more hydrated and less lined. In addition to firming up your skin it brightens, hydrates, exfoliates, smoothes roughness, and improves the appearance of lines and pores.

Many people can even feel the tensing sensation as the peptides and phyto-tensors work to firm their skin. Don’t worry if you can’t though – the formula is still hard at work even if you can’t feel it.

3) Lifestyle

Aside from using skin plumping treatments, lifestyle choices make a huge impact on how youthful your complexion stays. While you can’t stop chronologically aging, you can prevent premature aging. UV exposure is the biggest cause of premature aging, so if you truly want to prevent sagging skin along with other age signs, like wrinkles and sun spots, you need to stay protected. This means wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen every single day. Smoking, poor diet and lack of proper hydration will also quickly age your skin by causing wrinkles, sagging and more.

Should both plump start and age activist be used together? Is so, 1 in the AM and the other at PM? Or do you choose one over the other based on preference/need?

    Hi Aimee,
    You can use one or the other, or both depending on your skin. To use them together, simply layer Plump Start and Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum in any order after cleansing and toning. Age Activist Clinical Youth Serum should be applied once a day and Plump Start can be used twice a day if desired.
