Collagen best for firming skin by Best Facials Singapore

Just like you, am often confused by many of the terminology in the anti-aging skincare industry. Not until I was a certified beautician, I became aware of the difference between firming cream vs anti-wrinkle cream.

It is important to know the difference between the 2 to increase the effectiveness of our skincare routine. Let’s take a look at the symptoms of skin lacking in firmness vs skin with fine-lines.

Skin lacking in firmness appears ‘flat’ with less prominent apple cheek and it feels less bouncy.
Skin with fine-lines usually have crow’s feet around the eyes, some expression lines and laughter lines more prominent than usual.

Lets understand why this happens.

One of the microscopic substances that makes up your skin is know as collagen. Collagen is nothing more than a protein that is twisted in a helical shape ~ like a DNA molecule. However, collagen has 3 strands instead of 2. Collagen’s shape helps to keep your skin strong and firm and confers some elastic properties a s well.

While collagen does have elastic properties, there is a protein in your skin that is more involved in the elasticity of it. This protein is called elastin. Elastin allows your skin to pop by into place after some kind of force depresses it or pulls it out of position, like your aunt’s fingers pinching your cheek.

Feeding your skin with collagen, tripeptides, collagen stimulating ingredients like Vitamin C and A serums will help to keep your skin in supple and firm condition.

My personal favorite for your consideration:

Dr Babor Collagen Cream: High concentration of Tripeptides, Hyaluronic acid and Marine collagen and good quality macadamia and sesame oil, this cream fills up all the fine lines and keeps the apple cheeks firm.
