“Sun damage, smoking, and aging in general lead to the breakdown of the skin’s elastin and collagen fibers and the thinning of the outer layer of the epidermis known as the stratum corneum. These are the fibers and cells that give our skin its springiness, stretchiness, and general translucent glow.” Dr. Jessica Krant*, NYC Dermatologist

Have you ever checked the time on your watch and noticed your skin was bruised? You don’t remember banging into anything, so what gives?
As the years have passed, you’ve probably developed a proverbial “thick skin” from life’s many surprises. Yet, while FOFs don’t sweat the small stuff anymore, we’re losing that “thick skin” on the outside. The skin firmness and elasticity we once enjoyed diminish day-by-day for a variety of reasons, including sun damage, blood thinners, or simply genetics. The kicker– our thinner skin makes bruises more apparent. The skin is also more prone to bruising, even from the most imperceptible bangs.
Fortunately for us (with the assistance of brilliant researchers!), there’s a cream that can help thicken our skin! Its ceramides, retinol, arnica oil and glycolic acid work together to rebuild and strengthen skin, not only to enhance our skin’s appearance, but also to help protect it in the future. Your skin will become FOFirmer as a result of smoothed texture and better maintained collagen and elastin production. And, you’ll have fewer surprise boo-boos!
