How to lift, tone, and contour my skin?
Updated: Jan 27
As we age, the skin on our face changes. You will notice a completely different structure over time because your body naturally produces less and less collagen. Then there is also the impact of free radicals on the skin. Free radicals are unstable molecules with missing electrons. They want to fill that void and become stable, so they look for molecules to bond with.
The result of that quest is oxidative stress, which makes your cells, including your skin, weaker. Free radicals are everywhere – cigarette smoke, air pollution, pesticides, UV radiation, etc. Avoiding them is nearly impossible, but that doesn’t mean you can’t protect your skin. Proper skincare can do wonders against free radicals.
The importance of exfoliation
Exfoliating your skin with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) is a necessary step in every skincare routine. The benefits include reducing sun damage, erasing existing fine lines and wrinkles, and a better texture, thanks to increased hydration.
If you want to try AHAs, AMRA exfoliators contain resurfaced acids that naturally remove dead skin cells. Incorporating this product into your skincare routine will give you a brighter complexion and improve the texture of your skin.
Serums for fighting the free radicals
Exfoliating your skin is just one step in reducing the damage by free radicals. Consider nourishing the skin with a serum packed with active ingredients. For instance, AMRA Multi-Protective Shield creates a protective barrier that defends the skin from pollution and UV damage. This serum has branched polysaccharides that smooths the texture too.
If you want to protect your skin and improve tightness, AMRA Active Instant Skin Tightener is for you. One of the main ingredients is 100% naturally-derived microalgae from photobioreactors. The formula contains active substances such as amino acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. You will notice improvement as soon as you apply the serum because your skin will instantly feel tighter. But it is best to use this product daily since it increases the natural production of collagen.
Those with oily skin think that face oils shouldn’t be in their skincare routine. However, these products contain vitamins and ingredients that will do wonders for the overall health of the skin. If your goal is to lift and tighten your face, consider trying out AMRA Face Oil which all contain:
Bakuchiol: This oil will naturally improve your collagen production and fight the signs of aging. Furthermore, it is considered a natural alternative to retinol that will not make your skin flaky in the initial stages.
Rosehip seed oil: Beta-carotene (vitamin A), vitamin C, and vitamin E are all recommended for fighting free radicals, and rosehip seed oil is packed with these ingredients.
AMRA Silk complex: If you want your skin to feel moisturized and smooth without that sticky and greasy feeling, this might be the oil for you.
AMRA Planta Marine: We all dream of the firm, toned, and smooth skin that looks radiant, and this oil delivers results thanks to fibroblasts and collagen fibers.
Vitamin E: Those dealing with scarring and hyperpigmentation should include vitamin E oil in their daily skincare routine. It will hydrate your skin and protect it from sun damage too.
Pomegranate seed oil: This is a perfect anti-oxidant, thanks to an ingredient called polyphenol. Your skin will feel soft and moisturized. And you will notice a difference in elasticity.
Finally, face massages can make a difference when it comes to face tightening, increasing circulation, draining toxins, and cell production. Remember to use AMRA Face Oil to make your fingers glide and also nourish the skin. Here are just a couple of moves you could try:
Pinching: This technique is perfect for better circulation but also toning. Use your thumb and forefinger to gently squeeze the skin, starting with your chin and moving toward the ears.
Knuckle roll: This move is recommended for better absorption of a product such as a face oil or serum, and it is easy to do. Make a loose fist and massage the jaw and cheeks with your knuckles. There is no need to press hard.
Tapping: Even though it sounds simple, tapping your fingers all over your face can drain toxins and reduce water retention.
