Let’s face it–aging is inevitable. As we get older, skin becomes thinner and less elastic, which may result in wrinkles or sagging skin.
You may be wondering how to slow aging, but don’t forget that aging is natural and a part of life. Try not to worry about it too much! While you can use skincare products to prevent wrinkles and aging skin, we always want to emphasize the importance of self-love, no matter how many wrinkles you have or may want to get rid of. We want to encourage habits to keep skin looking healthy, which can slow signs of aging to help you age gracefully.
How Stress Can Impact Skin
Feeling stressed out can affect your skin in a variety of different ways, including acne, rashes, bags under your eyes, and wrinkles. When you’re stressed, your body creates hormones and changes skin proteins that may result in physical changes to your skin. The changes in proteins can reduce skin elasticity, which may play a part in wrinkle formation. Stress can also cause your brow to furrow repeatedly, which can ultimately lead to forehead wrinkles.
An important way to reduce stress is to #TakeAMoment and add self-care to your busy days. Self-care can be enjoying a good book, going for a walk, or starting a new bodycare routine (may we recommend our Shower & Empower Duo?) There’s no right or wrong way to practice self-care, and it’s an integral part of lowering your stress levels, which can contribute to keeping youthful-looking skin.
Here are several body parts that show signs of aging faster than your face and how VOESH products can help to keep your skin looking healthy and more youthful. It’s ultimately not possible to reverse the signs of aging, so the next best ideas are spa treatments for ultimate self-care!
CHEST & NECK
The skin on your neck tends to be one of the first body parts to show signs of aging, because it is thinner and more delicate than the skin on the rest of your body. Similar to the face, your neck and chest can also develop fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why these body parts require just as much attention as you give to your complexion.
We recommend using the same products you use in your daily skincare routine on your chest and neck. If you don’t have a set skincare routine, you should moisturize day and night with a nourishing body cream, like our Velvet Luxe Vegan Hand and Body Crème. Infused with organic virgin olive oil and avocado oil, this luxurious crème will smooth, hydrate, and plump skin for a youthful effect.
Did you know that hands start aging in your 20s? Because you use your hands for various tasks every day, they are always exposed to different elements that cause them to dry out and wrinkle. Frequent hand washing strips your hands of moisture and natural oils, and sun damage can create sunspots and premature wrinkles.
We recommend moisturizing your hands every few hours with a hand cream like our Velvet Luxe Vegan Hand and Body Crème. This lightweight, non-greasy crème deeply hydrates and leaves skin feeling velvety soft. Be sure to also incorporate sunscreen into your daily routine and apply it all over your hands, but especially the back of your hands.
For a more intensive hydrating, spa-like treatment, our Collagen Gloves are the perfect remedy for dry, cracked hands. The dual-layer material locks in moisture, and the convenient design features removable fingertips for use of hands during wear. They are enriched with argan oil and collagen-rich emulsion to repair and nourish extra dry skin in just 15 minutes. Collagen-rich emulsion boosts skin’s elasticity, giving it firmness and bounce, and argan oil revives dull skin and improves its natural glow.
Elbows age quickly due to multiple factors, such as prolonged exposure to the sun, dryness, and loss of collagen. Since elbows are mostly bone, there is not a lot of muscle or fat to plump up the area. They are constantly moving and bending, which stretches out the skin and causes it to droop.
If you are dealing with dark, dry, or droopy elbows, our Youthful Therapy Elbow-High Gloves have got you covered. These vegan collagen long gloves moisturize, brighten, tighten, and revive dry skin from your hands up to your elbows. Vegan collagen increases skin’s elasticity and niacinamide decreases hyperpigmentation for more youthful-looking skin.
Similar to elbows, knees are essential to daily movement, which means they are often overworked—pressure put on your knees can contribute to stretching of skin and eventual wrinkles. Knees also lose collagen and elasticity as you age, so moisturize your knees as much as your elbows! This loss of skin elasticity is what makes you age the most.
To help rough knees retain moisture and improve their appearance, Velvet Luxe Vegan Hand and Body Crème will soothe and soften dry skin.
When it comes to aging, there is no way to stop it, but with a healthy skincare regimen, you can delay the signs of aging and keep your skin looking fresh, bright, and healthy. The earlier you establish a routine, the better off you will be, and can be a sign you will age well. Stay one step ahead and start a new regimen before you notice the appearance of aging signs.
