In most cases, when you fight the signs of aging, you target the face. We think it’s time to set your sights on other parts of the body that can show years of damage even more easily. Here are three areas that are often overlooked and can age even worse than your face:
Elbows & knees
The skin around your joints is subject to constant bending and stretching, eventually leaving it loose and down-right saggy. In addition to years of active use, these areas tend to be dry and left exposed to the sun during summer months. This combination of factors results in skin that is damaged from exposure to the elements, dry in texture and saggy.
How to make elbows and knees look younger? Our Coconut Firming Body Lotion and the Monoi Age Corrective Night Body Cream is perfect for 24 hours of anti-aging care. Enriched with coconut, shea butter and grapeseed oil, the Coconut Firming Body Lotion hydrates deeply and restores the appearance of tightness. The Monoi Age Corrective Night Body Cream takes the overnight shift with its exclusive Anti-Aging Stem Cell Complex - this ultra-rich night body cream leaves the skin feeling firmer, denser and smoother by morning.
No body part is more telling than your hands. Since your hands are exposed most of the time, sun damage is the biggest culprit in causing the signs of aging (Huffington Post). Wrinkles and age spots tend to appear here, leaving hands with the most visible signs of aging. The gradual loss of oil glands in this area also means that hands can become dry and wrinkled.
A good way to boost hydration and protect the skin is to use a moisturizing sunscreen. We recommend our Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen not just for all-over body use, but also for the hands. This sunscreen hydrates and helps prevent further sun damage with its broad spectrum protection.
With age, the decrease in production of collagen and elastin means that skin loses its ability to bounce back and hold its shape. Since the skin in the chest and neck is especially thin, the pull of gravity quickly reveals signs of age as the skin begins to sag and wrinkle (Prevention).
Our Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream for Face and Neck works on your skin in the chest and neck area overnight - nourishing, replenishing and reducing signs of wrinkles. During the day, you can turn to the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream. The Advanced Instant Lift fX gives an instant look of firmness to the neck and chest area, leaving it looking rejuvenated and tightened. Read our blog post for more tips on improving an aging neck.
