Lifting cosmetics for a radiant look
No need for surgery: a careful application of the right cosmetics will help to lift and rejuvenate your facial skin. Below is a handy guide to which types and brands of cosmetics to go for and how to apply them.
Types of cosmetics that help to lift your face
Good quality moisturisers with firming, smoothing and lifting properties should always form the basis of a good beauty routine. Opt for a night moisturiser than is extra rich and then a lighter day moisturiser with SPF than rides just beneath your makeup. Serums are a great option for lifting specific areas of the face (such as the under eye area).
Top brands to try
When seeking a facial treatment that will lift and tone your skin, certain brands are recognised as experts in the field. These brands include Elizabeth Arden, Shiseido and Sisley. This list would not be complete, moreover, without a mention of Carita and Estée Lauder: two other fantastic brands that provide wonderful lifting skin care options. Pick your favourite brand and see what they have to offer, or branch out into a brand that is totally new for you.
Tips for applying lifting skincare
Moisturisers should always be applied with an upwards sweeping (or gentle upwards directed circling) motion. This stimulates the blood flow and encourages the skin to lift upwards. Some beauty enthusiasts like to use a jade roller for this purpose as it rides effortlessly over the skin and is purported to help clear away impurities. When applying serum to the eyelids or the delicate under eye area, a different technique should be applied. Never pull or drag at the skin as this can result in puffiness or downwards sagging skin. Instead, apply the serum very lightly with a few gentle dabs of your fingertips and allow it to soak in fully.
