A firming face cream or a face tightening cream is a type of face cream that is designed to give the skin a taut, supple appearance. A firming cream works by tightening and toning the skin’s appearance by increasing the amount of Collagen and Elastin produced by the skin. As we age, skin naturally produces less Collagen which causes it to lose firmness.

NIVEA’s Cellular creams have been carefully created using ingredients known for their ability to restore the skin’s elasticity. The Cellular Expert Lift creams repair skin damage by strengthening the skin barrier, restoring skin structure over time and redefining facial contours. Whereas, the Cellular Expert Filler creams restore volume to the skin and give it extra firmness while filling wrinkles and sleep marks.

What are the Benefits of a Skin Firming Face Cream?

Using a firming face cream can have numerous benefits for your skin. A face tightening cream uses ingredients like Folic Acid, Bakuchiol and Peptides to firm sagging skin, allowing the skin to appear more vibrant. These ingredients stimulate Collagen production used to improve the skin’s elasticity by helping it reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

As well as firming the skin, skin tightening creams help keep the skin moisturised and hydrated with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid helps lock in moisture to keep the skin soft, plump and smooth, preventing it from becoming dull and dry.

Additionally, firming face creams help to even out the skin’s tone by strengthening the skin barrier with restorative ingredients for healthier looking skin.
