I NEED A "FIRMING CREAM"

"Firming creams" are nothing more than facial moisturizers. Manufacturers use the word "firming" to imply that a skincare product makes the skin look tauter. Unfortunately, there is no objective way to measure firmness of the skin.

Claims of increased firmness are commonly based on a handful of user's subjective perception. An increase in hydration of the skin may yield the same result.

WHAT ARE "ANTI-AGING" SKINCARE PRODUCTS?

Moisturizers specifically designed to address the signs of aging are marketed as "anti-aging" products. Simply stated, anti-aging products ARE moisturizers that CLAIM to improve skin tone, texture, and radiance, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Unfortunately, science has yet to discover a single ingredient or product that reverses or slows the aging process.

DO ANTI-WRINKLE CREAMS WORK?

Anti-wrinkle creams ARE moisturizers. These products increase the water content of the skin, temporarily improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Imagine if water is pumped into a raisin, it becomes a grape! The grape is firmer and has fewer wrinkles but the change is only temporary until the water pump stops.
