Regardless of whether we’re in our 20s, or 30s, as we age our skin naturally loses its elasticity. This is in part due to internal factors such as a loss of collagen and elastin production in our skin. External factors such as sleep deprivation, smoking and excessive sun exposure can exacerbate this process and lead to skin sagging as well. Fortunately, there are effective topical products that can help to prevent premature aging of the skin. These anti-aging products work to tighten and lift our skin to help maintain a youthful look and define our facial contours.
1. Laneige’s Time Freeze Face-Fit Roller
Fit for all ages, Laneige’s patented face line contouring roller (SGD77) is designed asymmetrically for a stronger face-fit effect. Through massaging the chin, cheeks and upper part of the forehead, this roller helps you to attain a more defined facial contour effectively. For optimal results, this roller is to be used with Laneige’s Time Freeze Firming Sleeping Mask (SGD53) as well to tackle the 5 signs of aging (dryness, skin texture, fine wrinkles, pore elasticity, skin tone).
2. MTG ReFa Carat Ray and ReFa Face-up cream
Designed to replicate professional and deep “kneading”, the ReFa Carat Ray’s (S$299.00) double drainage rollers help to tone and tighten our skin. Also, a mild micro-current runs through the rollers, giving the user a radiant youthful glow within a short amount of time. Recently launched, the ReFa Face-up cream is also available now for joint use with the ReFa Carat Ray. The cream contains over 80% of water-soluble agents and a specially designed ReFa ECT ingredient. This provides a unique texture for the smooth use of the rollers to ensure that the skin is taut and supple.
3. Dr Ci:Labo Enrich Lift EX Cream
In combining “firmness”, “tightening” and “hydration”, Dr Ci:Labo’s Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift EX cream is designed to act as a revolutionary multi-functional moisturising gel. Inspired by Ulthera (a skin-tightening therapy), the product was further enhanced in its skin-tightening function to deeply penetrate the skin (the fascia) for optimal results. Upon application of the product, it forms a 3D Fascia Band on the surface of the skin such that lifts and increases the elasticity of the skin. In order to apply this product, massage by pulling the skin outwards from the centre of the face. This retails at SGD75 for 50g and SGD150 for 120g.
4. For Beloved One Advanced Anti-aging Ceramide Squalene Series
Formulated using the ultra-firming ingredient of Ceramide, Squalane, and Red Tourmaline, For Beloved One‘s Advanced Anti-aging series is a premium line designed to target the stratum corneum layer of the skin. Particularly, For Beloved One strives to tackle the skincare troubles of women with a hectic lifestyle – dullness and sagging of the skin.
You’ll particularly love the bio-cellulose mask in the series. Its use of Ceramide II and III help to repair and enhance the skin’s protective function, control oil levels, and maintain skin elasticity and hydration. This helps to prevent the forming of wrinkles and mimics micro cosmetic surgery effects. Given its multiple benefits as a luxury oil, Squalane is also used to help protect the skin from free radicals, and repair damaged cells. Lastly, the goodness of Red Tourmaline helps to activate cellular microcirculation in the skin to give you a healthy rosy glow!
It retails at SGD63 for a box of three pieces of masks.
5. Albion’s Embeage Excia Series
The Excia Embeage line is formulated by Albion to help increase the amount of DHEA (a “longevity gene”) in our skin. An abundant amount of DHEA enables skin cells to regain their youthful structures, as well as to become resilient against hormonal imbalances and damage from environmental pollution. Albion’s medical DNA research also shows that there was increased collagen production in skin tissues and a rise in moisture levels. Such anti-ageing effects help to ensure that your skin stays taut and firm, leaving you with defined facial contours!
The line consists of three products: Excia Embeage (SGD260), Excia Embeage Lotion (SGD260), and Excia Embeage Dionectar (SGD360)
