There are so many products on the market which claim to be able to halt or even reverse the signs of aging that it is often difficult to evaluate the efficacy of such products. Advertisements for skin firming cream, anti-wrinkle cream, and anti-aging cream are so good at using pseudo-scientific terms in order to sell their product that it can be very difficult to establish the veracity of their claims.

As people get older, their skin loses its elasticity and firmness and so becomes looser and begins to sag. Skin firming cream is designed to help reduce these signs of aging by removing premature lines, wrinkles and discoloration and by toning up loose skin. An effective skin firming lotion ought to achieve these results without leaving skin feeling greasy and without any side effects.

As people age, their body is less able to produce the vast amounts of collagen and elastin it could when they were younger. This results in the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. Skin firming cream and anti-wrinkle cream often contain collagen and elastin, although the body cannot actually absorb such large proteins through a skin firming lotion. Consequently, using such products often makes no difference to a person’s skin no matter how long they use the skin firming cream and how much of it they apply to their face and body.

There are other ingredients which do seem to produce some effect, however. For instance, some anti-aging cream products contain retinol, the animal form of Vitamin A, which seems to rejuvenate the appearance of skin as it stimulates the renewal of skin cells, although this is likely to make only a temporary difference. There are a host of other ingredients used in skin firming cream and anti-aging products such as fibrillin, a protein associated with the creation of elastin and collagen, silicone, antioxidants and lipo-pentapeptide, which is created from amino acids grown in laboratories. These have all been used in products which seem to produce firmer skin.

Although the effects of using skin firming lotion and other anti-aging skin creams are likely to be only temporary, in some cases there is evidence that using such products can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and help create firmer skin. Often such anti-aging products are formulated and tested by the actual makers of the products and so the results produced are often not scientifically verified. Indeed, many scientists are skeptical about the usefulness of anti-aging products.

A good skin firming lotion, when used regularly, will certainly not harm skin, and may have the added benefit of helping to produce and maintain firmer skin. Although the science behind anti-aging products may be flawed, they do offer an alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures in an attempt to defy age.

I recommend trying some natural creams and see what works best for you. One I use regularly is the Somaluxe Firming Lotion. I think it's the best one so far. There's not just one solution. Don't drink excessively and try to eat natural foods (fruit and veg). Exercise, maybe try light weights to tone areas.

surflover00-I have a couple of friends who have used Cellex skin firming creams. Some of them have seen results with this cream. One friend in particular saw a significant reduction in fine lines and saggy skin.

People should be aware that Cellex creams are pretty inexpensive. A 1 ounce bottle of firming serum retails for about $100. Considering that a bottle only lasts about a month, this is a considerable investment to make. However, if you are willing to pay the money, you will likely see some results from using Cellex.
