Why you should treat your face, neck decolletage & hands

Why you should treat your face, neck decolletage & hands

Looking after your skin is key to aging gracefully. Treating your face, neck, decolletage, and hands is essential if you want to keep your true age a secret. As we get older the skin on our hands and chest are often a tell tale sign of our true age. Our hands are continually being washed, stripped of natural oils throughout the day and sadly the products we use are often to blame. While washing our hands is essential, hydrating the skin is equally as important.

Dermatologists advise that parabens can damage the skin's lipid barrier. Washing our hands is essential, but this can lead to dry irritated skin or worse, eczema or dermatitis. Our decolletage is too often exposed to the sun's damaging rays, the skin on our chest can become dry with fine lines, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and sun damage. Our decolletage, hands and face are rarely covered up. Whilst applying a sunscreen helps to avoid further damage, nothing is more effective than covering up our skin, wearing SPF sunscreen and applying a suitable moisturiser as required.

We often over look the benefits of treating our neck, decolletage, and hands as much as we treat our face. This is a bad mistake that you will regret later on when the damage is already done. Skin that is exposed to full sun on a regular basis will cause your skin to become dry, wrinkly and discolored with an uneven skin tone. Worst of all it can take up to ten years for sun damage to show on your beautiful complexion, it is so important to consider factor. While your skin may look great today, repeated exposure to the sun will lead to premature aging.

The good news is there are some great organic products and health tips, to keep your skin looking it's very best. Cleansing your skin with a gentle face wash followed by a toner and hydrating facial oil or cream ideal for your skin type will provide the nourishment your skin deserves every day. Covering up when out doors is the best way to avoid sun-damage as is drinking adequate water throughout the day, but don't over this as drinking too much water flushes the body of beneficial Vitamins and this does not improve your health. 

You don't need to spend a fortune on skin care products. Washing your face with cool water both morning and at night will help to keep your pores closed. But, using a cleanser is essential if you wear makeup as is treating the skin with a suitable moisturiser if you want to improve your skin health. There are a few products that work really well and some DIY beauty tips that are a life saver when you've run out of your favourite products.

Best beauty advice

Don't forget about making fresh herbal skin treatments like a honey toner or egg white tightening mask. These recipes are so simple, rinse your face with warm water to open the pores. Gently apply bicarbonate soda as a facial scrub in upward and outward motions. If you like mix a small amount of the Perfectly Clean Cleanser in hand with bicarb to create a scrub. Follow with the honey toner, blend a small amount of honey with a little water and apply using a cotton pad. Follow with your usual moisturiser or best sunscreen such as Under Our Sun, Eco Tan or Lovekins.
