Any good creams for skin firming? 🍓

Hi. I bought Dove Uplifted half price in Asda last week but no idea if it will make any difference. I am trying to prevent loose skin from being a problem. (Yes I am exercising)

Has anyone found a cream that works? I am using some Perricone Cold Plasma gunk for chin, neck, seems good so far but only had it 2 days and it cost an arm and a leg so it had better work or I will be sending it back to QVC!

  • There are mixed opinions on this subject EllaMidlands ☺ I do moisturise with some success ☺

  • It's a good question EllaMidlands and I'm afraid I don't have an answer - but I shall be very interested to see if anyone else does. I just use L'Oreal Age Perfect on my face (which seems to be doing a decent job of holding back fine lines due to ageing) and Intense body moisturiser by Dove elsewhere, and keep my fingers crossed!

  • Thanks for replying Dietbunny i probably put the post up at the wrong time, it's a shame you can't bump posts up so people see it.

  • Well, your post came up in my daily digest, as it were, so I think people will see it if they log on, but maybe not so many people are looking on a Saturday because it's the weekend?

  • What's a daily digest? What am I missing??

  • Yes, as @Windswept has said, you need to click on the arrow next to your name at the top of the page.

  • Hi Ella

    I use bio oil on my face and body. Just a little on my face and neck.

    I've been using it for quite a while and am really pleased with it. A bottle costs £8 in Primark and the exact same thing is £14 in Waitrose.

  • I am no skin expert but I would have thought that applying cream and other concoctions is a waste of time and money. Probably provide short term results. The skin, being an organ, requires fluids; water. This keeps it pliable and healthy. Cream would be absorbed and prevent water uptake into the cells. Vitamin D is probably the best solution. You get that from the Sun. So, do your walking outside. If you hear otherwise, let me know. I may be facing the same issue.

  • I do think moisturiser helps - I don't think it stops water from being absorbed as water comes from inside rather than topically applied. If I don't moisturise my face then it gets dry so think the body is the same. I agree it might not be able to tighten the skin tho SlimmingEagle but if it looks smoother that might be better than nothing. I see celebrities that lose weight that then look older - I am trying to avoid that. Plus rubbing some cream in distracts me from eating! Putting cucumber in my eyes stops me from seeing the way to the fridge!🥒🥒🥒🥒🥒

  • I use Tranquillity Skin Care Serums I buy it on Ebay it is a company based in London. I used to use expensive stuff elemis & Gatinaeu. So it's been very tried and tested by me. I can get excema but not with there products. I use ones with Matrixyl all natural etc. You can buy it direct & Amazonbut more pricey. Hope this helps TTFN
