Besides these, you may also look for vitamin enhanced face-firming creams, for e.g., creams which contain Vitamin E. Avoid face firming creams with ingredients like petroleum jelly or strong fragrances. Petroleum jelly tends to close skin pores, whereas fragrances just enhance the appeal of the product. Though, pleasant odors are nice, they are not safe, especially paraben. It is often used to mask the foul-smelling ingredients that are used in the skin-care products. It may cause a great deal of havoc to a person who has allergies like itching, watery eyes, and sneezing. Therefore, try to avoid paraben and fragrances as much as possible.
