Best Skin Tightening Cream

Updated on February 15, 2010

What are the best skin tightening cream products out there? Before I get into product recommendations, why are people like you seeking skin tightening in the first place? Well, as we age, our skin starts to get saggy, droopy, and wrinkly. The older we get the more our skin cell tissue loses its ability to retain moisture. As such, the cell membranes in our skin lose their firmness. As we age, the structures, which hold up our skin, start to break down. If you don’t use sunscreen, these supporting structures will break down a lot faster.

It makes sense to look for products, which promise to get the tight skin we had when we were younger. But if you are banking on getting a cream, which will magically tighten your skin and make you look years younger, you’ll be sorely disappointed. They, quite simply don’t exist. Eye lift creams may promise to give you tighter, more youthful skin, around the eyes, but the results aren't going to make a big difference. Even if a cream advertises itself as “skin tightening”, it can only give you a slight improvement in your skin. For example, Cellex-C Advanced-c Skin Tightening Cream says that it is a skin tightening cream that “dramatically reduces the visible signs of aging”. Really? Because products such as these aren’t regulated by the FDA manufacturers can make virtually any claim that they want.

You can, of course, read user reviews of anti-wrinkle creams or anti-aging cream on sites such as to get an indication of what the product will do for you. The best skin tightening cream that works is not a cream at all, but non-invasive professional treatments. These include Titan, which says that it promotes"long-term collagen rebuilding" by using infrared light, and Thermage, which uses radiofrequency to tighten the skin. Although each treatment may not be an instant skin tightening cream. It is an instant skin tightening procedure, albeit an expensive one.

Regardless, here are some ways which you can make sure your skin stays as tight and firm as possible as you age…

Be a sunscreen maniac. Everyone of us will reach the ages of 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70. You will get there. But how you look like then depends on what you do now. If you look older than you really are it is probably because you have wrinkles around the eye area. To prevent more of these from happening, be vigilant about sunscreen. Using sunscreen will also prevent loose skin. Girls often go to the tanning salon may very well regret it in the future.

Use Vitamin A or retinol. These are seen in many “anti-aging” creams out there. Now, although these creams aren’t really anti-aging, they can improve you skin because Vitamin A compounds increase collagen and how often your skin sheds, so that your skin has a more youthful appearance.

Use moisturizers.

Consider chemical peels. You can get chemical peels for use inside the house or professional ones done by your dermatologist.

Use botox early. Although this expensive treatment is commonly used by those who already have a lot of wrinkles, if you use it while you are still in your, say, 30s, it will only take a little botox to see a big difference.
