These tools decrease puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines.
As you age, your skin loses shape and firmness due to a variety of factors including genetics, lifestyle, and hormonal imbalances. However, the biggest culprit is the decline of estrogen levels, says London-based facialist Alexandra Soveral. “Elastin fibers are the scaffolding of the skin, holding it in place, and estrogen stimulates their growth,” she explains.
One way to combat this is with targeted professional treatments. The Spa at Equinox offers a Caudalie resveratrol lift facial that promotes collagen production by massaging the face, says Jessica Clark, lead esthetician at Equinox in New York City.
For at-home treatments, Soveral recommends doing a daily face massage to bring new oxygenated blood to the surface and work the facial muscles. Try one of the following products, which, in addition to their shaping benefits, increase the effectiveness of your other skincare items by helping them penetrate the skin more easily, notes Clark.
