How To Get Plump Skin? – Here Are 5 Ways To Plump Up Your Face!

As you grow older, your skin undergoes a lot of different changes. Your skin cell regeneration slows down, your skin becomes dry and dehydrated, your facial contours change, you notice sunken cheeks because your skin loses elasticity and volume, and the tissues of your face start to slacken. This makes you look dull, tired, and older than your age! If you want to learn how to get plump cheeks without going under the needle, here are five anti-ageing tips that will help you understand how to get plump, glowing skin and bring back your youthful radiance.

1. Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliating your skin is the first step to plump skin! Depending on your skin type, you should exfoliate anywhere between one to three times a week to ensure that the dead skin cells do not accumulate on your skin. Since your cell regeneration slows down as you age, an anti-ageing tip that’ll come handy, is scrubbing your skin with a gentle yet effective exfoliant gives your skin a helping hand in shedding old skin cells and producing new ones. When dead skin cells build up on your skin’s surface, they also clog your pores and make it difficult for your skincare products to penetrate deep within your skin. By unclogging your pores with a scrub, you are allowing the active ingredients from your skincare products to work their magic on your skin. And that’s not all, when your face has an irregular texture due to the accumulation of dead skin cells, it does not reflect light uniformly and this what makes your skin look dull and lacklustre. Exfoliating your skin helps bring back the lost glow to your face and instantly knocks years off your look.

2. Massage your face and try facial exercises for facial volume!

Just like you exercise the different muscles of your body, your face too benefits from regular stimulation and exercise. Gently massage your face twice every day (during your morning and nighttime skincare routine) to stimulate your muscle tissues. Massaging will make you go from sunken cheeks to fuller cheeks, will give your face a natural “face lift” and will slow down the signs of ageing. Start young and regularly massage your face and perform simple facial exercises to prevent the loss of elasticity and facial volume. A simple anti-ageing tip is to use an anti-ageing cream while massaging your face as the circular movements of the massage will help the cream get absorbed into your skin better. Massage your face with the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Night Cream every night to enjoy bouncier skin and restore your skin’s firmness. Follow the massage with some facial exercises to maintain your skin’s elasticity and volume.

3. Choose anti-ageing active ingredients for a plump skin!

The skincare industry has stepped up its game in the last couple of years and there are different types of creams, serums, sheet masks and more that address all different skin concerns. When dealing with the loss of volume and looking for the best products to plump skin, here are some star ingredients to keep in mind –

• Hyaluronic acid – if you could pick just one active ingredient to get plump cheeks, it is this one. Hyaluronic acid works wonders for skin that is losing elasticity as it goes down into the skin where it plumps up the intracellular membranes, stimulates the support fibres (collagen and elastin) and boosts cellular renewal. You can use the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5 % Hyaluronic Acid Serum which is a lightweight and non-sticky serum, that instantly hydrates your skin and increases skin radiance by 42%*. – one of the best products to plump skin!

• Pro-Xylane and Retinol – these ingredients boost and protect collagen, and encourage the production of natural hyaluronic acid (yes, your body does create its own, but it needs a helping hand as you get older). For example, the Revitalift Laser X3 Renewing Anti-Ageing Serum by L’Oréal Paris with 3% Pro Xylane visibly transforms your skin and reverses the signs of ageing by boosting your skin’s elasticity and hydration.

• Vitamin C – this powerful ingredient strengthens your skin cells and boosts its ability to produce collagen which in turn helps your skin appear plump and tight.

4. Establish a revolumizing anti-ageing routine

One of the best anti-ageing tips to know how to get plump cheeks is to combine all the different anti-ageing products and active ingredients you have into a unique anti-ageing skincare routine that works best for your skin type and needs. Don’t just stock up your bathroom shelf with any anti-ageing skincare product you can get your hands on, look for ones that are specially created to target skin that has lost its volume and elasticity and establish a morning and night time skincare routine that will help you get plump, glowing skin. Adopt a revolumizing anti ageing routine by using the right products in the correct order to get the most out of each active ingredient.

Here are two important products that should be a part of your plumping skincare routine –
A volumizing, skin plumping serum – serums are powerhouses of active ingredients and probably the quickest and easiest way of giving your skin an intense dose of skin plumping ingredients. So it comes as no surprise that Volumizing Serums are Our Mid-Life Best Friends! Use a serum in your morning and night routine to combat the signs of ageing and loss of facial volume.

• Plumping sheet masks – Pamper your skin from time to time with a sheet mask that instantly plumps your skin, making it look tight and young. The L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Fresh Mix Serum Sheet Mask is infused with Hyaluronic Acid (we told you, it truly is a hero!) that helps skin remain hydrated and enhances skin’s natural radiance. In just 15 minutes, the Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask leaves your skin feeling more plump and smooth. With regular use, your skin will feel firmer and fine lines and wrinkles will be visibly reduced.

5. Eat a nutrient-rich diet and drink enough water

You already know that what you eat and drink plays a massive role in your skin’s health. So why not help your skin by consuming nutritious foods and food items that help boost collagen. Load your plate with leafy greens, garlic, foods rich in Vitamin C and E, and eggs to plump your skin naturally. Loss of volume in your skin is also often caused due to dehydration, so don’t forget to drink enough water to keep your skin hydrated.

And that’s it! This is how to get plump skin and prevent further volume loss!
