What skin issues show your age more than anything else? I thought wrinkles, but that isn’t so. According to a 2015 research study, the biggest indicators are loss of skin volume (thinning) – and loss of elasticity (sagging). Now, both contribute to the formation of wrinkles, but thinning, sagging skin are the main culprits. Besides surgery, how can you fight these two age indicators? With great skin care that targets skin elasticity. City Beauty says the answer can be found in their Multi-Action Sculpting Cream ($67).sample affiliate links
The Multi-Action Sculpting Cream is a thick, creamy moisturizer that works for your face as well as other areas of the body, like your neck, arms, and hands. It tackles loose, saggy skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles. The whole goal is to give your skin back that springy feel that young skin has by replenishing elastin and fighting the toxins that age skin.
Derived from acacia and sunflower, this ingredient gives skin a smooth, tightened finish within 5 minutes of application. It works by forming a contouring network on the skin’s surface – and then retracting for an immediately tighter feel. 96% of users in one study reported a visible tightening effect on loose skin – which also helped reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.
This powerful peptide decreases levels of progerine (the skin-aging protein) by 22%. Progerine interrupts your body’s natural repair processes. As a result, it can cause several unsightly signs of aging. Progeline also promotes healthy levels of collagen and elastin. Combined, these features, can improve your look from the inside out with an enhanced remodeling effect – especially noticeable around the jawline and neck. That’s why 92% of users reported firmer, fuller, and denser skin.
This cutting-edge compound stimulates elastin synthesis and promotes strong skin architecture – for noticeably enhanced elasticity. It attacks the root cause of saggy skin – increasing elastin by an astonishing 94%. Elastin is the protein that gives youthful skin its ability to “bounce back.” So, higher elastin and springy young skin go hand in hand. That’s why lab tests with Idealift show a 24% decrease in skin sagging.
Multi-Action Sculpting Cream has no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or mineral oil, and no animal testing.
I am impressed with this moisturizer. I’ve been testing it for about three weeks, and as well as using it on my face every morning and night, I also smooth it onto my neck, decolletage, and upper arms. I am happy with it as a face moisturizer, but I have really seen results on my chest and arms. My skin looks firmer, less wrinkled, and tighter. I wish it wasn’t fragranced – it has a slightly floral but also oddly chemical smell – but the fragrance dissipates pretty quickly. I like the gold scooper that comes with it; it’s much nicer and more substantial than the plastic ones that typically accompany jar moisturizers.
I am excited to continue using the Multi-Action Sculpting Cream to hopefully see even more results in the next few weeks! You can find the Multi-Action Sculpting Cream on City Beauty’s website.
