Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: Taking care of your skin is vital, especially as we age. We always focus on maintaining our face, minimizing wrinkles around our eyes and keeping our body moisturized and healthy but we tend to overlook places on our body that need that love too. Returning Guest Blogger, Amy Mia Goldsmith is talking about those 4 body parts that we overlook and shares tips on how to give them some proper TLC.
If all anti-aging routines focused explicitly on the most visible and prominent areas of our appearance, we’d only be discussing anti-aging remedies that focus on the face and face only. The truth is, most of us DO only focus on the face when looking to make ourselves appear younger, absolutely neglecting other parts of the body that are just as important.
That being said, we’re singling out the most commonly neglected body parts that need some anti-aging loving as well!
[ Neck ]
When in your 30s and 40s, the neckline starts to loosen up, giving this area a slightly changed look. The best way to keep the skin tight is with radio frequency treatments as they help firm up the area.
Lasers are fashioned to help wipe away the years from your neck, improve neck texture and skin color, giving it a fresher and younger look.
You can also include tightening neck creams in your regular beauty routine and give your neck area a light massage every night before bed.
[ Hands ]
The recent trend around the world is injecting hyaluronic acid fillers into the hands to fight off the signs of aging by giving them a plumping look while q-switched lasers regulate the brown spots.
Apart from these, you can opt for something non-invasive, like the best anti-aging hand creams you’ll use on daily basis or as prescribed.
Check out Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Hand Treatment Cream, it’s amazing!
You can consult your dermatologist on what cream they would recommend, based on your skin type and age.
[ Legs ]
Although legs do tend to stay firm for an extended period of time, their initially smooth look may be ruined by bumps of visible cellulite and veins. If cellulite is the problem, go for anti-cellulite hand massages, CoolSculpting or radio frequency treatments that help firm the skin above the knees and the cellulite, as well. The world’s gone crazy for CoolSculpting in Perth as the results (as shown on their gorgeous Aussie clients) are just incredible.
If veins are an issue, sclerotherapy is the thing. However, before deciding on any of the options, make sure you consult your MD.
In the meantime – smooth and nurture those babies out with something powerful like SkinCeuticals Body Retexturing Treatment.
[ Chest ]
Apart from regularly applying sunscreen on your chest, treat it to Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Necollete Age Reversal For Neck and Chest which will firm your skin up and make it smoother.
Additional options are fillers that will aid with deep creases or radiofrequency tightening.
[ Additional Anti-Aging Tip ]
Genetic factors excluded, all bodies start showing their aging signs at about the same time. Also, you may think that your skin problems are only visible on your face, but they can actually be clearly seen on your whole body.
The signs of aging are relentless, but it’s up to you to find solutions that work for you.
[ What Can You Do? ]
Once you understand how important it is to take care of other parts of your body other than the face, you’ll manage to postpone aging to a certain extent. Apart from cosmetic remedies like lasers and fillers as well as nurturing anti-aging creams, you need to introduce healthy changes in your diet as you are what you eat, remember?
Eating unhealthy foods makes the skin age quicker and leaves it damaged with stretch marks, loose skin, cellulite, spots, bump, and veins.
So, introduce a lot of leafy greens to your plate, fruits, lean meats and a lot of water on a daily basis. Nourish your skin with fresh foods to detoxicate naturally and stay tight as long as possible – with minimal help.
