The quest for age-defying skin has inspired an entire genre of products—and it’s not only about anti-wrinkle creams you slather on at night. There’s tons of formulas out there with firming and lifting in mind. Skin lifting products generally help to make skin look awake, energized, and also (perhaps the most exciting) make fine lines less visible. Think of them as the low-key, preventative version of a face-lift—with no healing time required.
Sound good? We think so, too. Check out some of the skin-lifting products out now, below.
Rejuvenating Lift for Neck and Décolleté ($55, nordstrom.com)
The skin on the neck is getting attention—and for good reason. This is one spot prone to aging that we often forget about, but Murad’s lifting formulation is made specifically for that region and the décolleté. It works to firm and lift skin with a blend of botanical extracts, and is formulated with retinyl palmitate to improve the skin’s texture over time.
Sustainable Youth Any Time Lift Eye Treatment ($60, sustainableyouth.com)
One of the most popular areas of the face for anti-aging products, the eyes are prone to wrinkles and those pesky fine lines called crow’s feet over time. This eye gel uses the company’s proprietary complex that’s formulated from aloe vera leaves to increase firmness and lift sagging skin—and it also contains other natural plant-based ingredients to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
WEI Dragon Blood Eye Lifting Pad ($60, weibeauty.com)
Kate Hudson recently snapped an Instagram pic wearing these eye pads. Don’t let the “dragon blood” concept scare you away though. That’s really only a red sap that’s found from a Dragon Tree which the brand claims helps with instantaneous lifting and firming in about 10 minutes—FYI, the mask isn’t red. We definitely got a boost of firmness, tautness, and lift when we try these.
Dr Jart+ Laugh Line Lift ($12, sephora.com)
This face mask looks a little funny, but it’s cut specifically for the wrinkles and fine lines that form around the mouth—yep, consider those laugh lines lifted. The hydrogel mask not only works to plump the skin but helps with circulation and hydration. It’s really cooling and takes about a half hour to work its magic—it can make talking a little weird, so maybe just sign into Netflix?
