Anti-Aging Body Skin Care
The most common skin problems associated with age are easily treated and prevented with complete skin care. The improvement can be dramatic and fast when you know what to do – and that starts with understanding what happens to your skin as it ages:
- Your body skin will become much more dry and scaly, especially on your arms and legs.
- It will also thin, but most of the thinning is actually due to sun exposure.
- The thinning and dryness can lead to crepey skin changes.
- Sun exposure is responsible for the age spots that are flat and brown (a.k.a., ‘liver spots’).
- Sun exposure is also responsible for the fragility of skin, especially on the back of forearms and front of the shins.
- Seborrheic keratosis lesions (a.k.a., ‘barnacles’) are another common aging skin problem and the cause is unknown. These are warty, crusty, salmon/brown-colored growths that can appear anywhere on the skin.
- Excessive dryness, left untreated, will lead to a type of eczema called nummular or asteatotic eczema (which is due entirely to dryness).
- Other skin problems worsen with age, including seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, skin fold rash called intertrigo, dry and scaly feet (with or without athlete’s foot fungus infection), etc.!
It sounds overwhelming, but know that many of the remedies for aging skin problems are similar. Use the 4 steps of complete skin care to have healthy, attractive, and comfortable skin that fends off these problems.
- Cleanse dry skin using only gentle soaps and cleansers, such as my Naturally Best Bar Soap or VaniSoap. For crusty age spots and excessive roughness or scale, exfoliate and add Glytone Body Wash. Fight dandruff with my Foaming or Calming Zinc ® Products.
- Correct skin problems like age spots with my Glycolic Acid products. I’ve put my all-time favorite skin routine products for aging skin into a kit called my Glycolic Acid Body Skin Care Kit. It will fight many of the problems I just listed above.
- Hydrate all areas prone to dryness and crepey-ness with one of my moisturizers. Again, my Glycolic Acid Body Skin Care Kit has a great moisturizer for dryness-prone aging skin.
- Protect with broad spectrum mineral zinc sunscreens 365 days a year, applying to all exposed skin. Sun causes thinning and fragility that can always get worse, so prevention is critical for healthy skin as you age. Don’t forget the scalp when it comes to sun protection. My Sheer Strength Pure Mineral Spray Sunscreen is ideal for hairy areas of skin.
