Tighten the skin gel/cream

How well do skin tightening creams work?  Is this done by a low grade irritation?

  • it's usually done by forming a rigid film on the surface of the skin

    a number of hair styling polymers can do this job, or, if you're not worried about the moral, ethical and legal consequences of using industrial-grade materials in cosmetics, sodium silicate (which, among other things, is used as the binding agent in cement)

  • I am looking for something that will work on the female privates... do you have any ideas?
  • I wouldn't recommend using this type of product on the genitals at all; just peeling the film off could cause severe irritation
