any beauticians or skin care professionals on Mumsnet tonight?
I'm after some advice please. I'm 39 and have 4 year old DS and 9 week old DD. I'm fit and healthy but i think that this time round my body, or more particularly my skin, needs a bit of extra help to get rid of the saggy bits etc. I'm back exercising again and I've always eaten fairly healthily but I've never taken great care of my skin.
Can anyone recommend a product please that I can use along with exercise and a healthy diet to try and get my body back to how it was, or even better maybe??
I am not a beautician or professional in any way but i love decleor and they have a toning concentrate
Decleor tonilastil which looks good - but i stress I have never used it - i use the prolagene for my stretch marks though and love that product.
speaking as a non beautician but skin care addict... I would say it is very difficult to get rid of saggy skin other than by toning up the underlying areas... easier done on your bum than face... but there are some good facial exercises that you can do...
for my face, I swear by Eve Lom.... expensive but it makes my skin glow and hopefully you can forgive any sagging caused by 40 years and 2 kids... I also like RoC eye creams for reducing puffiness under neath... I have found that a consistent skin care regime (and I mean regime -- can not slack at all) does help improve skin tone and appearance amazingly... and there are some good facials like CACI that help with toning...
Dillydally - someone else recommend Decleor so I might have to try that.
Mancmum - it's not my face i'm concerned with really, it's my tummy, upper arms and things.
I'm working out in the gym to tone it all up but think the skin itself needs an extra helping hand.
