What Makes Your Skin Plump?
September 23rd, 2015
Have you ever wondered why some women have naturally plump skin, while others seem to lack fullness and a healthy glow? It turns out that there are various ways you can make your skin appear plumper by using a few products and updating your skincare routine.
Getting enough Vitamin C isn’t just good for your health, it also has great effects on your skin as well. Vitamin C helps you fight off wrinkles while helping amp up the formulation of collagen, which gives skim a plump appearance and texture. In addition to getting enough of the vitamin in your diet, there are also topical products that contain Vitamin C as well.
Staying Away from Smoking & The Sun
Both smoking and exposure to UVA rays damage the collagen in your skin, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, and more.
Exfoliating removes the top layer of skin (all those dead skin cells) to help speed up the natural process of skin and collagen renewal. Look for products that contain hydroxy acids, since they promote new skin cells ones to grow after the exfoliation. Or if you’d rather do-it-yourself, there are various homemade exfoliating scrub recipes available online.
Although it may sound silly, facial exercises can help keep your skin in tip-top shape. Use your fingers to tap skin on your forehead, under eyes, the jaw, chin and cheeks. Repeat these exercises twice a day (for about five to ten minutes per day) to start to really see results.
