Skincare shouldn't stop at the face! Here are 4 body parts you're forgetting ​(and regretting)

Skincare shouldn't stop at the face! Here are 4 body parts you're forgetting ​(and regretting)

So, thanks to your incredible skincare routine, your face hasn’t aged a bit! ​Phew!​ Your complexion is glowing but your neck and décolleté tell a different story. As we all know, skin concerns don’t just occur on the face but more often than not, we’re ignoring the parts of our body that need some serious skin lovin’. From protecting, firming to hydrating, here’s 4 areas that need an AM/PM routine just as much as your face.

Neck

With every year that we age, our body produces less collagen - the hero behind naturally taut and youthful-looking skin. Extending your skincare to your neck is crucial as thanks to its thin nature, exposure to the sun and of course, gravity, neck wrinkles and sagging can show up sooner than you think.

One of the first signs of neck ageing is lines. Caused by creasing through sun damage, sleeping and simply the natural ageing process, it’s time to treat those necklines before they become neck wrinkles. Thankfully, Wrinkles Schminkles has made preventing neck ageing so simple that you can do it in your sleep ​(literally)!​

Their 100% medical grade silicone pads work to keep the skin on your neck taut throughout the night to prevent creasing and accelerated wrinkle damage. Whilst you’re catching up on much needed z’s, the silicone is boosting blood flow and hydration to the treatment area.

Add some skin lifting benefits to your next evening self-care ritual. Apply an ultra-hydrating treatment ​(we can’t go past the Cosmedix Illuminate and Lift Neck and Décolleté treatment)​ in upwards strokes across your décolleté, collarbone, neck and up towards your jawline. These rhythmic strokes are not only penetrating the plumping and brightening product into your skin but boosting your circulation and production of collagen and elastin.

Décolleté

Much like your under-eye area, your décolleté is a thinner layer of skin that requires targeted care. Thanks to its delicate nature, your décolleté is often the victim of accelerated ageing.

We believe that prevention is ​always ​better than correction. That’s why your AM skincare routine should feature a dedicated SPF product that’s applied to your face, neck and décolleté. The small percentage of SPF found in your favourite tinted moisturiser or BB cream isn’t going to cut it when it comes to proactive prevention against ageing, pigmentation and sun damage.

When your PM routine comes around, it’s time to introduce a targeted treatment to this sensitive area. Packed with plumping hyaluronic acid, brightening licorice root and advanced skin firming peptides, PCA Skin Firming Neck and Décolleté has been specially designed to target the tell-tale signs of ageing on these commonly neglected areas.

Completing its impressive ingredient line-up, this skin boosting product features a blend of potent antioxidants to help protect and defend the skin against the signs of ageing caused by the environment.

Just like our neck treatment, Wrinkles Schminkles have done it again with the overnight décolleté treatment of our dreams. Using the same silicone technology to tighten, circulate and hydrate, their Chest

and Décolleté Smoothing Kit works to relieve and soften chest wrinkles so you can wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

 

Hands

Remember that age-old saying that if you want to know the real age of someone you look at their hands? It goes without saying that our hands are one of the most forgotten about areas when it comes to skin care protection and age prevention.

We know we sound like a broken record, but we need to say it louder for the people in the back! Sun protection is your biggest insurance policy against premature ageing. If you love a multitasking product as much as we do, you’re going to want to hear about the Jane Iredale Hand Drink.

Infused with active botanicals and antioxidants to replenish and protect, this luxurious hand cream also offers broad spectrum sun protection with a SPF15 rating. Paired with a delicate rose scent, we love applying Hand Drink throughout the day to keep our hands moisturised but seamlessly protected from UV rays and environmental aggressors.

Sun exposure is responsible for a large proportion of hand ageing, but it isn’t the only culprit. Exposure to the elements, the environment around us and even the products our hands are in contact with throughout the day (think washing the dishes) takes a toll on how our hands appear and feel.

Taking hand creams to the next level, Saya has paired nourishing ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and Aloe Vera for the ultimate hand rejuvenation treatment. Celebrated as ​“silk gloves in a bottle”,​ this powerful combination creates a fast-absorbing lotion that will leave your skin feeling smooth and hydrated all day and night.

Lips

Do your lips cross your mind when thinking about the signs of ageing? Often left out of the skin care equation, lips lose their volume and plumpness overtime just like the rest of our skin. Whilst lifestyle factors play a big role in the speed of their demise, there’s plenty of ways we can be doing more in our skin care routines to show our lips some love.

It’s time to introduce an exfoliation routine for your lips. Just like your face, we need to regularly exfoliate our lips to keep them looking and feeling smooth. Using an organic ​(and totally lick worthy)​ brown sugar mixture, the Jane Iredale Sugar Butter Lip Exfoliator and Plumper gently exfoliates your lips to remove dead skin cells and build-up of dry or dull skin. A unique tinted lip plumping treatment follows your exfoliation thanks to rejuvenating peptides, nourishing shea butter and invigorating mint and ginger.

For intensive rejuvenation, we’re about to give your lips a serious glow up. Our very own Skin Matrix Vitamin C Lip and Eye Intensive is another magic multitasker for treating the signs of ageing, sun damage and hydration.

This targeted treatment heroes Seabuckthorn Oil which features more than 12 times the Vitamin C goodness than oranges! Paired with protective Vitamin E and smoothing CoEnzyme Q10, our Eye and Lip Intensive assists in restoring brightness, combatting the signs of ageing, boosting collagen and elastin production and adding a serious burst of hydration.
