How to tighten up your skin AND Boots Botanics Giftstravaganza Giveaway

You can head to the gym to tighten up your tush, arms, abs and thighs, but when it comes to your face, there aren’t really any moves you can do to firm up. Keeping your face tight and firm is sometimes a mission.  Fortunately, there are a few things you can do.

The skin around the eyes is some of the thinnest on your whole body, which is why it is the most prone to the effects of aging. As the years go by, the collagen tends to break down, and when it does, the skin loses its firmness and begins to sag. Fluid retention can make the loose skin fill and create those dreaded “bags” under your eyes.

You can reduce the “bag” effect by sleeping in a more upright position – consider stacking pillows to support your head, neck and shoulders to discourage fluid from pooling. If you still have bags when you wake up, placing a cold washcloth, cucumber slices or a cool gel pack over your eyes to reduce swelling.

However, the best way to do away with these issues is to firm up the skin under your eyes. There may not be any pushups you can do to tone this area, but you can use certain creams and serums that work to the same effect. Boots  Botanics Nourishing Eye Cream  thoroughly hydrates under-eye skin and nourishes the skin to keep it strong and firm.

Want to keep your face firm and youthful? Make sure you’re moisturizing at night, too.  If you don’t like the heaviness  of most night creams, Boots Botanics has released Complexion Refining Light Night Cream.  It’s  like a superhero for your face. It exfoliates, moisturizers, reverses the damage done by everyday environmental pollutants and delivers anti-aging nutrients to your skin.
