Skin Expert Explains How To Do “Skin Snatching” At-Home

With Face Lifts trending with breakout searches, and face taping all the craze on social media, we ask a skin expert how to create this effect from home without breaking the bank or going intrusive…

Clinic Lead at Face the Future, Kimberley Medd, says, “Skin snatching is all about a lifted look, where the skin feels fresh, renewed and tight, similar to the appearance of a face lift, but without the invasive surgery. We’re seeing more demand for a toned, lifted and contoured face, and there are many tips online about how to achieve a snatched look without having a face lift, all by using the right application techniques, pulling the hair back tight, using face tools. 

One way in which to create a more “snatched” look is to use the sandwiching technique. Applying a mixture of in-clinic radio frequency and infrared light treatments in combination with tightening and lifting serums over a condensed period of 4 days.”

You can create an at-home version with the use of devices such as GESKE MicroCurrent Face-Lifter 6 in 1, perfect if you are looking to create a firmer, radiant glow.

As it massages your skin, the currents work beyond the surface to increase circulation, eliminate toxins and ease any facial tension. Your collagen productions will also be stimulated, repairing the loss of elasticity in your skin for a tighter complexion, alongside reducing fine lines and wrinkles creating a more even skin tone.

Another at-home device to incorporate is Deesse Pro Express LED Mask. This express version works to stimulate your body’s natural rejuvenating process without exposing you to harmful UV rays. In just four weeks, the low-light therapy is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 35%, as it delivers you with a safe therapeutic dose that stimulates your collagen and elastin production.

For products, it’s important you’re using lift-targeting products such as NeoStrata Skin Active Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum, which helps volumise slack skin by reinforcing the skin matrix for a plumped, firmer, lifted and more youthful appearance.

Products described as lifting and firming are infused with collagen and elastin-supportive ingredients, peptides and proteins to help tighten the skin’s appearance.

The NeoStrata Hyaluronic Luminous Lift is a lightweight gel-cream with NeoGlucosamine to gently exfoliate your skin to reduce the look of age spots and promote a visibly firmer, more luminous complexion.

Another skin product for a snatched look is using DIBI Milano Lift Creator Botox Concentrate which provides a firming effect and a formula to smooth wrinkles and expression lines, whilst working to bind water molecules to keep your skin moisturised.

For a facial oil, NUXE Merveillance  Lift Firming Activating Oil-Serum is a firming activator for a more toned skin appearance. 

“When used consistently, skin lifting products in conjunction with at-home devices can improve skin laxity and firmness. It’s important to assess your skin needs, as these products can have combined benefits to target you skin concerns such as added moisture, anti-aging and dull complexions. You should speak to your dermatologist/skin clinic if you have any concerns or are unsure on your skin’s needs.”
