My skin lacks firmness. How can I firm up the skin on my body?

1. The skin on the body loses its firmness with age.

With age or after weight gain, the collagen fibers that once kept the tissue firm are altered, and irrespective of the area on your body, skin starts to slacken. Clarins founder Jacques Courtin realized that tackling skin firmness improved the overall appearance of the body.

2. Clarins' solutions for firmer skin

To firm up your skin, start by exfoliating once or twice a week. Regularly using a body scrub will help boost the action of any products you apply afterwards. Try the Exfoliating Body Scrub for Smooth Skin with bamboo powder, or the Tonic Body Polisher to gently slough away dead skin cells. In addition to exfoliating weekly, apply a daily firming product if you want to achieve plump, toned skin. Whether you prefer a gel, cream, or something milkier, there's a huge range of different textures to choose from. You might like the Extra-Firming Body Lotion or the Extra-Firming Body Cream.

There are targeted products that tackle specific areas, too, such as the Bust Beauty Firming Lotion and the Bust Beauty Extra-Lift Gel. These products are highly effective on targeted areas. Finally, you can keep bloating at bay with Tonic Body Treatment Oil, made from 100% plant extracts. As soon as you get out of the shower, apply a few drops of the oil to wet skin, gently massaging it in before rinsing with cold water. Tonic Body Treatment Oil is ideal for erasing stretch marks, improving skin elasticity, and sculpting your curves.
