Maybe you caught the recent news about Lady Gaga’s using facial tape to pull the skin around her neck and cheekbones tight and to help form her cat-eyes look. Let’s face it — over the years, the force of gravity and decreasing collagen production causes your skin’s muscle tone to deteriorate, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles around your eyes, cheeks, chin and neck. Facelift tape products work by pulling your skin back to give you a more youthful appearance.
Do this simple test at home: Look in a mirror, place your index fingers in front of your ears and your thumbs at the back of your jaws. Push the skin upward and back. This is what beauty facelift tape will do to make your face look instantly younger.
Yes, tape can do more than help wrap presents — you can apply it to the skin on your face to help reduce wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and lift sagging skin. Beauty facelift tape can give you a mini-face lift look and it offers a temporary, affordable, non-surgical solution to aging skin problems. There’s even tape for your upper eyelids to reduce hooded lids. Best of all, you can purchase facelift and eye lift kits online or at your local drugstore or supermarket for just $15-$40 a pop.
Wrinkle tape often comes in kits that include tape, adhesive pads, elastic bands and anchors that are placed behind the ears.
***Note: The results you achieve with beauty facial tape will vary greatly, depending on the products you use and the way that you apply them. If you feel any discomfort, remove the beauty facelift tape immediately.***
