NYC dermatologist shares skincare advice he gives his patients
- What Causes Sagging Skin?
- What Are The Best Firming Ingredients?
- What Is the Difference Between Firming and Wrinkle Creams?
Collagen breakdown means skin becomes less elastic, leading to sagging skin, and enlarged pores because the collagen fibers in the walls around no longer provide support to hold their shape. As we mature, naturally occurring enzymes that erode collagen become stronger than the mechanisms in our skin that combat them. The sun can also speed up this process, leading to premature aging.
When looking to firm skin, these ingredients are the most effective:
Peptides – (Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide) protein derivatives
Retinol – form of vitamin A
GABA – (aminobutyric acid) an amino acid
Vitamin C – a potent antioxidant
Centella Asiatica – a plant extract
Wrinkle creams contain collagen-building ingredients such as ubiquinone (CO-Q10), Genistein, and lycopene. Firming creams will often contain these same collagen-building ingredients, but also include additional ingredients such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, peptides and antioxidants that plump, firm, and tone the skin.
