Five Best for sagging skin 2017

September 27, 2017 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments

Sagging skin is the most important concern for the Truth In Aging community and I have been biding my time before coming up with a new Five Best selection for anti-sagging. Armed with collagen boosting peptides, LED and ultrasound, firmer skin will keep our heads held high.


  • Truth Vitality Lux Renew

    Truth Vitality Lux Renew ($279 in the shop). Topical serums still have a way to go before they will be the be all and end all for sagging skin. So I reach for my Lux Renew with LED and ultrasound to plump and firm the skin. These technologies work by encouraging cells to produce collagen. In our independent clinical trials, Lux Renew more than proved itself as a skin firmer: according to expert evaluation, 79.3% showed improvement in skin firmness and according to instrumental evaluation (cutometer), 100% of participants showed improvement in skin firming.

  • Skin 2 Skin Anti-Sagging Renewal Serum

    Skin 2 Skin Anti-Sagging Renewal Serum ($73 in the shop). In my experience, skin is lifted, especially around the jawline and lower cheeks. A focused formula with firming peptides. Syn-tacks is a combination of two synthetic peptides that increase collagen IV activity by a whopping 190 percent, according to the manufacturer. Syn-Coll is a peptide that also boosts collagen by mimicking the body’s own mechanism to activate transforming growth factor beta, TGF-β (Tissue Growth Factor), a key element in the synthesis of collagen. It also protects collagen from degradation through the inhibition of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP).

  • Your Best Face Control

    Your Best Face Control ($160 in the shop). Control contains Syn-Hycan, which is aimed at lifting sagging skin. This peptide stimulates hyaluronan (HA) synthesis and expression of the proteoglycans, decorin and lumican. Another key active is Relistase. This is actually a tripeptide and inhibits elastase activity and boosts collagen 1 synthesis. It has also been designed to treat sagginess and restore firmness to the skin.

  • Sciote Peptide+Defense Firming Youth Serum

    Sciote Peptide+Defense Firming Youth Serum ($105 in the shop). My skin does well with amino acids and initially I thought that this serum would be good for radiance, but not necessarily for firming. I was wrong. It does extremely well in the finger-tapping test (smartly rap tip of finger against cheek and take note of resilience). As well as the aforementioned amino acids, there’s Matrixyl 3000 and a plant-derived alternative to sodium hyaluronate.

  • Dr. Dennis Gross Triple C Peptide Firming Oil

    Dr. Dennis Gross Triple C Peptide Firming Oil ($62 in the shop). This is a standout product as far as I am concerned. I originally started to use it for lip lines, but soon discovered that its firming effects were useful everywhere. All good things come in threes and there are three types of vitamin C, as well as three peptides that boost collagen and the extracellular matrix. One of these peptides is a relatively new one called TEGO Pep 4-17 that has a small molecular size and penetrates the skin well.
