One really common skin issue that we hear from women is after a drastic weight loss, when they’re left feeling as though their skin lacks the fullness that it once had. Many women worry that weight loss will actually leave them looking older in the face, but that needn’t be the case if you use the right products. Here, we suggest some things which will compliment your new, trimmer body and give you an even bigger confidence boost.
This skin booster from Dermalogica will not only firm your skin and reduce fine lines, but the vitamin C, protein peptides and seaweed also combine to re-texturise the surface of your skin. With regular use, this will help you to regain a more youthful complexion as well as preventing your skin from further signs of aging with antioxidants. It should be applied after cleansing and before using your regular mosituriser.
Intensive Youth Concentrate from Decleor is a truly powerful product which contains the highest concentration of their L-PROLINE Complex which will reactivate collagen synthesis and actually tighten your skin on a cellular level. The effects are immediate and you only need to apply two drops to your whole face after cleansing.
Skin which looks prematurely aged often lacks the vital moisture needed to give it back its oomph. This is where Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist comes in, as it can be spritzed onto the face and decolletage for a much-needed moisture boost throughout the day. It contains flash-firming properties designed to improve skin texture while intensely hydrating dry, dehydrated skin.
If you’ve gained weight and then lost it again, there’s a good chance you’ll have stretch marks and striations to deal with, which means finding a good product which can help to both firm your skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. This gel-cream from Decleor can be used all over your body in areas which are stretched and will not only help existing stretch marks to fade more quickly, but they’ll make your skin more supple, preventing any further stretching.
Loose skin under your eyes is the quickest way to appear tired and old beyond your years, so if weight loss has left you with bags, this serum from Dermalogica can really help. Its potent formulation helps to tighten the skin, but is super gentle so can be used on even the most sensitive of skin. Golden chamomile reduces puffiness and hyularonic acid boosts your skins moisturising power.
