Re: Skin Tightening Product?
Is this more of a smile-lines problem, or sagging skin around the lips?
I've read good reviews for Olay Total Effects Night Firming cream. I like Olay's Regenist night cream. I think both are good for fine wrinkles, or smile lines.
If it's sagging skin, I'm not sure of any lotion that would firm it up, but I do know that some artists do use a type of "face lift tape" for a temporary "face lift" but this is fod very special occasions only.
Here are some instructions I found, so you can get a genera idea of how it works:Instant Face-Lift
* Isometric beauty band, or gauze or adhesive tape
* Thin elastic tape
* Cosmetic adhesive
Time: 5 minutes to 1/2 hour
At least two products available provide an instant facelift. One is an isometric beauty band to lift and smooth sagging facial skin; this is a handy version of a standard theatrical makeup trick, and can be purchased from most cosmetic supply houses. The second is called an instant face-lift; buy it at any shop that sells theatrical makeup, or make your own.
The instant face-lift consists of two bands over your head, to lift the skin of our cheeks, chin, and jaw. These two bands are the ear lift and the chin lift.
To make the ear lift, cut two 1-inch-long triangles of gauze. Sew one end of an 8-inch piece of thin elastic tape to one corner of each piece. Using a cosmetic adhesive, glue a piece of gauze close to your hairline and directly in front of one ear with the elastic strip aimed at the top of your head; repeat to attach the other piece of gauze in front of your other ear. Pull the elastic strips up and tie them tightly together at the back of your head.
To make the chin lift, cut triangles of gauze and sew elastic strips to them as above. Attach one triangle just below and behind each earlobe. Pull the strips up, tighten them, and tie them.

Sounds a litte crazy, but I've seen pics of it done in Eve Pearl's Plastic Surgery Without the Surgery and the results are quite good, though I can imagine getting a headache from this!
