Natural Skin Tightening

Is your skin feeling down? Literally? As you age and gravity takes its toll, your skin will lose its elasticity and start to sag.  Before you break the bank and seek out surgery or other costly and invasive methods, try using these simple methods for at home skin tightening. You and your skin will feel better in no time.  

Neck

Many people desire the long neck of a swan but feel a little bit more like a farm turkey.  If you are looking to tighten the skin of your neck naturally, try exercising your neck muscles from the comfort of your own home.  Yes, it sounds silly, but exercising your neck can help strengthen the skin and prevent little lines and wrinkles.  No weights necessary, all you need is your neck! 

Step 1: Place your hand on your forehead.

Step 2: Push against your hand while feeling resistance. You should feel the muscles in your neck working.  

Step 3: Hold this for about 10 seconds.

Step 4: Hold your hands behind your head (almost like you are going to do a sit up).

Step 5: Push back into your hands and hold for another 10 seconds.

After you’ve stretched out your neck, try using SiO Beauty’s NeckLift Silicone power patch. This medical grade patch is  comfortable, safe, easy to apply and effective.  Put the NeckLift patch on before you go to bed and wake up with a smoother, rejuvenated and lifted neck. No heavy lifting required here.  

Eyes

Maybe it’s those little lines around the eyes that have you seeing red.  Because the skin under and around the eyes is so thin, it is very common to have wrinkles in this area.  Add in constant smiling and squinting, and these repetitive movements can cause those grooves to form around the eyes.  One of the best steps you can take in tightening the skin around your eyes is preventing sun damage.  There’s no way around it, the sun’s ultraviolet rays can be very harmful to your skin.  The UV rays break down collagen and elastin, the two things your skin needs to stay firm and bouncy.  

Its best to apply sunscreen every day to your face, neck, and chest, reapplying every two hours.  Keep the sun’s naughty rays away by wearing sunglasses whenever you are outdoors.  Buy yourself an oversized pair and a big floppy hat and you’ll feel like a glamorous movie star (even if you are just going to the beach for the day).  Even if it doesn’t feel sunny, you may still be feeling the sun’s rays.  Up to 80 percent of the sun’s UV rays can pass through clouds.

SiO Beauty makes patches for specially targeted areas, including the eyes.  The SiO Eye & Smile Lift Patches smooth away laugh lines and eye wrinkles overnight.  These patches repair and prevent signs of aging like crows’ feet and eye crinkles, giving you your plumpest and smoothest skin.  Plus, they are all reusable up to 15 times! After use, simply place the patch in the enclosed safety shield until you are ready to use it again.

Chest

It may seem easier to avoid low cut tops than to face the little wrinkles on your chest.   Similar to the skin around the eyes, the skin on your décolleté is very sensitive and susceptible to wrinkles.  Try using aloe vera on this area to smooth out your skin.  Aloe is one of the best sources of natural collagen.  Like we said earlier, collagen is an amazing protein in your body that boosts the elasticity of your skin.  As you age, and other factors come into play (lifestyle choices like poor diet or smoking), your body produces less collagen. Thank goodness aloe is here! Aloe also works to moisturize your skin and heals burns.  You can even drink aloe vera juice to aid in stomach or digestion issues!

Spread aloe vera all over your chest.  You can use aloe from the plant itself if you can get your hands on one or you can purchase aloe vera at most beauty shops.  The cooling sensation on your skin feels great and it’s working to lessen those chest lines.  This multi-tasking plant can be your go to for quick skin fixes.  

We didn’t forget you, chest! Silicone patches aren’t just for the face, you can use them on your décolleté too.  The SiO SkinPad adheres to your chest and plumps and smoothes this area overnight.  Wake up to a visibly rejuvenated décolleté .  After removing the patch, apply SiO Beauty’s Décolleté Serum for extra hydration and brightening effects to help lighten sun spots.  

Face

Don’t fret about your face wrinkles! Simple lifestyle changes can make big improvements in your skin.  

  • Hydrate! We know we sound like a broken record, but drinking more water can improve your skin.  Without water, skin can appear dull and dry.  Water makes the skin plumper and fills in those pesky wrinkles and lines.  
  • Cut out cigarette smoking.  With over 4000 chemicals in cigarettes, it’s not doing your body or your face any good.  The nicotine in cigarettes constricts blood flow, leaving your skin dry and discolored.  
  • Get more sleep.  Not only will you feel more refreshed (and have more time for your SiO patches to work), but your skin will thank you too. The more you sleep the more HGH (Human Growth Hormone) your body produces, which helps skin remain more elastic and less likely to wrinkle.
