Body Firming cream FAQs

How often should I apply body firming cream?

If you want to maximise the process, you should apply body firming cream twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. This is the key to noticing immediate and tangible results in your body. Obviously, you should apply the cream to the problem areas on your body, whether that's your thighs, abdomen or arms.

If you have particularly troubling cellulite or you're experiencing loose skin after pregnancy, it might be worth applying firming cream three times a day to produce effective results. After a couple of weeks, you should start to notice a huge difference in the tightness of your skin.

Although firming creams are adept at tightening and firming the skin, they aren't miracle creams that can do it all by themselves. You need to regularly exercise and eat healthily to maintain toned skin.

What is the best body firming lotion?

Many brands offer deluxe firming lotions for affordable prices. Omorovicza, This Works and Clarins offer firming lotions at the higher end of the price range, ranging between £30-40. They are worth the extra bit of cash, tailoring their lotions to specific parts of the body that are usually most affected by loose skin, stretch marks or cellulite.

You can get nourishing and effective firming lotions for more affordable prices: Philosophy, Trilogy and Sisley deliver top-calibre products for less than £20, creating formulas that are rich in skin loving nutrients. Whatever brand you go for, make sure you purchase a firming lotion which guarantees to moisturise the skin and add tonage.

Skin rich in moisture is the secret to adding tone and tightness - dry skin often remains blotchy, loose and covered in dimples - so make sure you to keep your complexion fully moisturised.

How to apply body firming lotion?

Applying body firming lotion is very simple, quick and convenient. If you already have a set skin care routine, you can add body firming lotion seamlessly, and it's especially effective when combined with a nourishing moisturiser.

Firstly, squeeze a penny sized amount onto the palm of your hand, typically 2-3 drops, then rub the palms of your hands together gently and thoroughly. Massage the lotion into the problem areas of your skin in circular motions, making sure to cover the whole affected area. Massage the lotion until its been fully absorbed by the skin.

Leave the skin to completely absorb the lotion until your skin feels visibly fresher and sleeker. Apply a small amount more if you feel it's necessary.

Why do I need body firming cream?

Body firming creams have many uses and though there are some sceptics out there, they are proven to tighten and tone the skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite and eradicate stretch marks. Women who've experienced pregnancy rely on body firming creams to help tighten the loose skin and return the body to its previous shape.

If you're someone who regularly works out, firming creams are the perfect addition to your lifestyle. They will quicken the skin toning process significantly and bring out the firmness in your legs, stomach, buttocks and arms. The key to a good firming cream is providing a moisturising element; the skin looks thicker and firmer when its rich in moisture, which is the primary focus for firming creams.

Many firming creams target the dimples that appear on our thighs, abdomen and hips, and gradually reduce their appearance over time.
