The Science: Cells communicate with one another through electric currents, says Leslie Baumann, MD, a dermatologist in Miami Beach. Enter a new category of anti-agers known as bioelectric lotions, which stimulate impulses that trigger cells in deeper layers of skin to produce collagen and elastin.
The Goal: Improve skin firmness. "There are many ingredients that can boost collagen production, but none until now that has successfully created more elastin, which keeps skin from sagging," says Dr. Baumann. "These products actually lead cells to make more elastic tissue."
