How To Choose Perfect Skin Firming Lotion

Updated on November 10, 2014

As we grow, some contents in our skin diminish and our skin starts looking old. Signs of aging start showing. All the people and especially women want to look young and beautiful for their entire life. But unfortunately signs of aging are seen first on skin, as skin is exposed the most to outer hazardous factors of all other body parts.

Scientists are trying since years to find out an ideal product which can firm the aging, loosening, sagging skin. And they are successful too to a large extent. Today there are a lot of skin firming lotions available in the market. Ironically only some of them keep their promise to offer a firmed skin to the user. Many of them are of no use, while many others offer adverse effects and hence are dangerous to use.

Because of this women get confused which product to choose. If you study through various sites dedicated to the subject of dermatology, you will find some ingredients responsible for tightening or loosening of the skin. Skin lotions use those very ingredients in their products and you have to look for them while buying the product.

Some common essential ingredients you must look for, while selecting a truly result-giving product are:

Hyaluronic Acid

This is a very essential ingredient of the skin which is naturally present, but goes on diminishing with growing age. It is a building block of the skin. It can hold water up to 1000 times its own weight, so you can guess how much moisturizing it can bring about. It also stimulates the production of collagen. As the age increases, hyaluronic acid decreases resulting into loose, sagging skin. The products containing this ingredient are expensive, but they are worth because they give the desired results in a short time.


This ingredient should also be there in the skin firming lotion essentially. It boosts up the formation of elastin and collagen in the body. It also brings about rejuvenation of the skin cells and repairs the damaged cells.

Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10

This is smaller form of the very essential Coenzyme Q10. The nuclei of cells of our skin contain Coenzyme Q10 and it is a very potent antioxidant. Free radicals are the biggest enemies of our skin. A large percentage of harm done to the skin by environmental factors is done by free radicals. Therefore Coenzyme Q10 is offered by the Nature to human body to fight them.

When with age COQ10 decreases in our skin, result is the skin losing elasticity and firmness. If we can apply a product of COQ10 to the skin we can get its firmness back. It can also bring about cell regeneration due to which the skin may look youthful. However the molecules of COQ10 are too large to get absorbed through the seven layers of our skin to rectify the damaged collagen fibers properly. Therefore they are converted into smaller molecules called Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10. This is a nano-emulsion version of COQ10 which is easily absorbed by our skin to give the desired results. Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10 also protects the skin from UV-A rays, which are largely responsible to produce signs of aging.

L-Ascorbic Acid

It is a form of Vitamin C which is a well-known rejuvenator. Vitamin C stimulates the synthesis of collagen. Collagen is very important to retain the firmness of the skin and as vitamin C stimulates the formation of collagen it helps in tightening of the skin. L-Ascorbic acid offers vitamin C necessary for your skin.

What to Avoid

While you look for certain ingredients to be present in the skin firming lotion, you should also be careful about which ones to avoid. Substances such as parabens (methyl, butyl, propyl and ethyl), alcohols (methanol, isopropyl and ethanol), mineral oils (petroleum in petroleum jelly) and dioxane should not be there in the product you choose. These substances make the skin dry and irritable; above that, they possess the threat of skin cancer.

If you choose your skin firming lotion wisely, it will certainly give you the desired results in form of young-looking skin.
