Shea Butter ; Shea butter is an effective natural moisturizer known for its skin firming properties. It is the perfect choice for people with dry skin looking for a natural alternative to skin firming lotions.

Skin Firming Lotion ; there are countless commercial skin firming lotions available. There are lotions meant to reduce stretch marks and firm skin all over the body to skin tightening wrinkle creams meant to reduce lines around the eyes. No matter what skin you are interested in giving a boost, choose a lotion that contains a minimal amount of unnatural fragrance and skin irritating chemicals.

Oatmeal and Buttermilk Mask : You can make a natural skin firming mask at home with two common kitchen ingredients. Simply combine ½ cup cooked oatmeal with ¼ cup buttermilk. Let it dry completely, and rinse it with tepid water to remove. This mask tightens the pores, while moisturizing. The lactic acid in the buttermilk helps make the skin look fresh.

Pore Reducing Treatments and Formulas ; Any skin treatment or product meant to tighten and reduce the pores will firm your skin. Exfoliate before using these treatments for best results.

Banana : Mash a banana and spread on your face for a quick and easy skin firming mask. Leave the banana on your skin for 15 minutes and rinse with tepid water.

Steam ; Use steam to flush out toxins and make your skin feel tight. A steam can be a quick fix as a 10 minute refresher facial, or you can steam your body for a more complete skin firming treatment. Visit a sauna or steam-room for an intense body firming experience.

Are you frustrated with the fact that no matter how much you eat right or exercise, your skin will still age? Yes, healthy lifestyle is not enough for youthful skin. But what you might not realize is that you can take steps to lessen the signs of aging and enjoy firmer, more vibrant skin.

First and foremost, get the best skin firming face cream you can. But don’t make the mistake many people do and buy any moisturizer off the store shelf. Most products simply penetrate the outer layer of your skin, but are not designed to work in symmetry with the physiological mechanisms of your body.

Be aware that an effective skin firming product needs to target the three primary causes of aging skin.

The first appearance of aging skin is due to the loss of collagen and elastin in your body. Collagen is essentially an amino acid that acts as a sort of netting within the inner layer of your skin. When you replenish this layer you are building the skin’s source of strength and resilience. The best skin firming face solution will stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin to form new skin cells in your body.

The next culprit of the aging process is the level of hyaluronic acid in your body. Initially, hyaluronic acid is plentiful when we are all babies. But as we age, it slowly dissipates. What it does while present is to keep our skin smooth and ample. As such, hyaluronic acid is great for repairing wounds and other skin conditions.

It’s a fact of life; as we get older our bodies produce less and less proteins and nutrients. The drop in things like hyaluronic acid starts when we are between 18 and 20 years old. But after the age of 40 the drop becomes drastically steeper. Our skin starts to lose its elasticity and lines and wrinkles appear.

Like collagen, elastin is a fibrous protein that is a main constituent of the dermis. These fibers are less ordered and highly flexible so they extend easily and give skin elasticity. Elastin provides moisture to keep the skin supple, gives skin its resiliency and smooth feel, and provides our skin its "spring and snap".
