Anti-Aging Body Care

Anti-Aging Body Care.

As we age, we often focus on preventing or reversing the fine lines on our face and neck, but what about our skin from the neck down? Why shouldn’t we give it the same love and attention that we give our faces? Fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and sun damage affect all areas of the body, not just our face and neck. Anti-aging products abound, but most, if not all, target wrinkles on our face and neck. So what can you do to prevent wrinkles and age spots from the neck down, and what is the best anti-aging lotion to invest in if you want to protect all of your skin?

I’ve pulled together a quick overview of the best body care tips to prevent wrinkles and fine lines no matter what stage of life you’re facing. Consider the following body care tips and think about how you can infuse them into your beauty care routine, and discover my personal recommendation for the best anti-aging lotion for your entire body down below.

Always Wear Sunscreen

Even if you invest in a basic SPF 15 lotion for your face, it is a good idea to apply it to your hands, arms, neck and chest. Regardless if you spend the majority of your time indoors, your skin is still exposed, at a minimum, during your commute to and from work. If you aren’t protecting it with sunscreen, you risk speeding up the aging process.

Keep Hydrated 

One of the oldest anti-aging tips is hydration. Drink at least eight glasses of water per day to keep your skin looking and feeling youthful.

Pro Tip: Avoid water bottles and straws, as they can cause fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth overtime.

Use a Sugar Scrub for Dry Skin

If you suffer from excessively dry skin throughout your body, the best way to overcome it is through a daily skin scrub routine. Simply mix white sugar with a bit of plant oil (olive oil works wonders) and apply it liberally over your arms and legs. Anti-aging products can only go so far, for true relief you need to make room for new skin cells by removing and moisturizing dry skin.

Moisturize with an Anti-Aging Lotion

My personal favorite anti-aging lotion is the Nourishing Body Lotion. This product is ideal for women who want to prevent aging or turn back the clock on their age-spots and fine lines. Containing high-performance anti-aging ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, which dramatically boosts the skin's hydration levels, and Mango Butter which restores suppleness and smoothness to the skin, Nourishing Body Lotion improves your skin’s appearance by moisturizing and replenishing it from the inside out.  By zeroing in on dehydrated, flaky skin, it leaves your skin gorgeous from head to toe. Add it to your daily body care routine for the best results.

Stop ignoring the skin below your chin, and reinvest your time and energy into keeping all of it radiant and healthy. Use my personal favorite anti-aging lotion throughout your body and enjoy youthful looking skin for years to come.

Q:  What product is a must have for Anti-Aging?

A:  I feel that women of all ages should use a Retinol product. It helps keep skin clear and smooth. And don’t forget, while using a Retinol product to keep your skin moisturized and protected during the day with an SPF. (Try my Retinol Treatment Complex and Daily Defense SPF)

Colleen's Morning Skincare Routine

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

I love mornings.

It’s the beginning of a new day, with new opportunities and adventures to be had. One of the first things I do is get my skin ready for the day. My routine is all about cleansing, brightening and protecting my skin.

So what do I use?

First, I splash my face and neck with water and apply my Balancing Gel Cleanser. I use by massaging a small amount in a circular motion. I love this cleanser because it thoroughly cleanses my skin, leaving it ultra smooth and revitalized, while also protecting it. It’s also a great prep for my next treatment, the Vitamin C Treatment Complex.

This treatment is great because it works to improve your natural radiance and clarity, while also defending against environmental aggressors, like the sun! To use I simply apply a small amount into my hand and gently massage an even layer over my face and neck.

The next thing I use is my Complete Eye Cream. I love this eye cream because it not only addresses the signs of fine lines, but also reduces the appearance of under-eye darkness and restores elasticity. I use my ring finger to apply around my eye area in a gentle patting motion.

After the Complete Eye Cream, I apply the Sheer Renewal Cream. This can be used at morning or night and provides continuous hydration. It’s oil-free and has a powder finish, which leaves my skin feeling light and breathable! It’s often said to be a great make-up primer too. Apply to a cleansed face, neck and décolleté.

Last but most certainly not least, I apply my Daily Defense SPF 25. It is so important to protect your skin from the sun and it’s harmful rays. The sun, over time, can cause wrinkles, freckles and blemishes. It’s oil-free, absorbs quickly and is ultra-lightweight, leaving my skin with a soft matte finish.

That’s it! After I apply my make-up and grab some coffee, I'm ready to head out for the day, knowing my skin is protected and taken care of, for whatever lies ahead.

There was such a high request for my morning skincare routine, that I made it a Beauty Bundle! You can shop all these products, at a valued price, here: Morning Refresh Bundle.

I hope you enjoy it as much I do.
