Looking youthful and having plumping skin is the dream of every woman and here at NUME-Lab Switzerland through Swiss Biotech is what we formulate. Skin-plumping products for aging skin are in demand more than ever, as we’re all looking to revive our lifeless, dull skin

Loss of skin plumpness and skin elasticity is a big issue for aging skin. As our skin ages, it starts losing its ability to retain moisture as collagen production depletes. So, plumping skincare brands put their focus on collagen-boosting actives. 

Let’s see the best plumping skin strategy for you to bring back life to your skin.

What Is Plumping in Skincare?

Aging skin faces a decrease in collagen production and moisture retention, often resulting in dull and lifeless skin prone to dryness, wrinkles, and fine lines. Skin plumping is a way to retain moisture and suppleness to your skin, resulting in skin that’s hydrated and youthful. 

Plumping in skincare can refer to different topical skincare for skin-plumping or to various cosmetic procedures such as dermal fillers.

Do fillers help with wrinkles and make your skin plump? They can, but they can also have tons of side effects, in addition to being costly.

How to Properly Use a Skin Plumping Product?

A natural face plumping cream is different from an anti-wrinkle plumping serum. Serums are typically much more concentrated than moisturizers, so we use them less often. 

Generally speaking, the skin that’s most in need of plumping is aging skin or dry skin. Skin dehydration and free radical damage are the two biggest culprits of dull skin. To counteract all the damage your skin has been through, try to use only clean beauty skincare products rich in natural ingredients with no animal testing

The last thing that dull and damaged skin needs are harsh cosmetic ingredients like parabens, sulfates, alumina, MEA, DEA, TEA, phthalates, mineral oils, etc.

To sum up, if you’re using a moisturizer, use it twice a day, in the morning and evening. If you’re using a serum, start introducing it to your routine gradually. Start by once a week to see how your skin reacts to it, and then increase it to twice a week or more.
