6 steps to firm and fabulous skin
Beautiful, firm skin has the power to transform not just the way we look, but the way we feel. We’re serious – if we could relive that feeling of walking out of a spa every time we leave the house, with skin glowing, firm and nourished, we would. Luckily, you can get firmer skin at home with the right skin firming lotions and tips to go with it…
Give skin its bounce back.
Try pinching the skin on the back of your hand to see how fast it springs back. Over time, skin can lose some of its elasticity, and stops springing back so fast, so at some point it might need some help with a nourishing lotion
Shorten your shower.
Your skin has a lipid barrier that helps it protect itself, but prolonged exposure to water can damage it. A quick, refreshing shower in warm water will stop it from melting away, helping to protect the barrier that retains your skin’s moisture. And hydrated skin is plump, firm skin
Everyone knows what you eat and drink can affect the health of your skin. Try adding vitamin-rich foods like salmon, broccoli, and almonds to your diet to make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need to keep your skin looking and feeling great
Choose a new scent.
Smoothing in body creams with your hands is an indulgent, sensory experience on its own. To make it even more luxurious, try a moisturiser that smells gorgeous too. Dove Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Lotion will give your skin all the nourishment it needs and leave a comforting scent
Moisturising is key.
The key to putting elasticity and firmness back into skin is moisture. Dove Cream Oil Intensive Body Lotion melts into skin, leaving it feeling moisturised and silky smooth
UVA rays from the sun lead to photoageing, and this damage can cause a loss of collagen (which keeps your skin plumped up and looking firm). So using SPF, covering up or staying out of the sun when it’s strongest will help keep your skin firm and smooth longer
