When someone talks about anti-ageing skincare, we automatically think of our face. We are all very prompt and regular when it comes to applying the best products to our faces. But what about the other parts of your body? Well, they require the same amount of TLC because, well, they can start showing signs of ageing too (duh).
Ahead, a list of body parts that are usually ignored when it comes to anti-ageing skincare and how to care for them…
The skin on your face loses its elasticity over time, and so does the skin on your neck, chest and shoulders. How? Well, because these areas are equally prone to damage from the sun and free radicals. Thus, to combat this issue, it’s necessary to apply sunscreen (SPF 15 or above) to your décolletage to keep it looking firm and youthful.
Top of your hands
Your hands are one of the most exposed parts of your body and are likely to develop sagging skin, age spots and wrinkles if not cared for. Thus, it’s essential to apply sunscreen on your hands too to prevent them from ageing faster. Also, don’t forget to slather on moisturiser to keep your hands feeling soft and youthful.
The top of your feet
More often than not, we most likely never even think of our feet and anti-ageing in the same sentence. But our feet are equally prone to sun damage just like the rest of our body. If not cared for, you smooth and soft feet can soon become dry, cracked, rough and beset with sunspots and lines. The best way to protect your skin is by applying a moisturiser or anti-ageing product infused with vitamin B3 or niacinamide. This mighty anti-ageing ingredient helps prevent wrinkles, improves skin elasticity, and increases smoothness.
